Nissan Floorboard issue?

Nissan floorboard issue?

Seems that one of the popular models is not holding up for some,
curious after seeing this on the news this morning...  if anyone has one of these.

Few people inspect the underside of a car when buying a used one.

I've owned 2 Nissans......a Rogue that I gave to my daughter, and now one of the new Murano's.  No problems with either, but to your point, I've never looked at the floor board from underneath.

I had a 70's model Chevy pick up truck that did the same thing.  I pulled up the carpet and dropped a piece of plywood over it and drove it another couple years.

That is some nasty looking rust.......almost as if a few lots of untreated floor pans made it through the system.

Reminds me of the 60's Fiat Spyder's that rusted on the dealers lots....

Now if that doesn't sound like the usual first response from the OEM!   ;)

When in doubt - blame the supplier!

 ;D

I'm sure there is a ton of happy test results to back that assertion up!

I just wonder if this will become the norm again now that the steel is ultra thin thanks to Obama's fuel mandates.

Something has to give.

I have a 2006 F-350 I bought new, and had it "professionally" rust proofed at the dealership before it left the store.  It now has rust everywhere... the hood, tailgate, doors.  Rust is almost all the way through the steel on the hood.  So it's not just Nissan. 

$45,000 hunk of rust.  I am NOT happy.

I'm about ready to buy a new one.  I think I'll drive this one until it falls apart.

Yep, I've seen some trucks rusted pretty badly and some not at all.
Mine Ram is'08 with no rust that I can see.  I wash regularly and keep in garage. I don't know if that makes any difference

Part of your issue is where you live and where you drive.  Dirt roads are hell on vehicles, especially in the winter when the dirt (mud0 cakes up and retains road salt and promores rust.

Buy and aluminum F150 or wait a year and get an aluminum 250 or 350 gasser (no diesel, Tier 4 Final diesel is bad ju-ju)( that includes farm tractors too).

Now, my 97 350 has no rust anywhere (including the notorious Ford wheel arches), but it never gets driven on muddy roads or in the winter.

Must be a good one....  Diamler-Chrysler and the old Chrysler had basically no QC on incoming supplies.  If it worled and was cheap...  use it.  Fiat is a bit better but not as good as the others....
