Hey all,

I started the petition, I figure if we can get 200 sigs we might have a chance at talking to Nissan. They like to hear from the community.

I am on my second SE-R and both had the pop out problem.

First one - 220k, never rebuilt

Second one - 130k, rebuilt

i think this is great, we should all get as many people as we can to sign this, i don't want to ever have to pay for a new transmission if my NX ever starts popping out of gear..how do we spread this out so mad people can sign it? it has to be signed by a lot of people for nissan to take action, right?

Anyway to make this a sticky?

We should keep the people informed, we are already up to 25 sigs on only a few days of this being up.

I will contact Nissan if we get enough.

Word,

Sam

I just picked mine up from getting the service done to the 5th gear. My motor mounts where ALL out too. The service tech said that they could have helped contribute to the problems too. I have the reciept that I can copy and e-mail if you would like to post it and link to it too. I would however have to white out the price cause it was done at employee cost.

SOmetimes a MOD can make a post stay at the top AKA sticky.

Start documenting everything related to your 5th gears.

I will talk to Nissan when we have suffcient information!

Lets see if someone can get us on to the Mailing list.

I'm just wondering at the possabilities here. Has anyone approached Nissan and said "if we get X number of signatures, will you fix our transmissions?" Most importantly, has anyone been injured in an accident as a direct result of 5th gear popping out? I really think that is the only way a recall will be announced.

Please understand I am not trying to belittle your attempt here. I own a '92 SE-R and dread the day mine will begin popping out. I'm trying to be realistic. They will laugh at 200 signatures. 2000 might raise one eyebrow. 20,000 signatures, now you're getting somewhere.

It has been my experience that the only way a car will ever be recalled is if the defect has the possibility of causing an accident. Examples: the headlights going out on the first Lexus LS400s, the defective front suspensions on the new Ford Exloders, Firestone tires, etc. Even things like the first AEM bypass valves that supposedly deteriorated and caused the throttle to stick open. All those are defects that can cause serious accidents. As far as I know, 5th gear popout doesn't fall in that category.

Good luck.
