A 54% drop in profit is a loss in my book because it means you lost over half of your market share to other competitors. My two Nissans, in which I purchased in 2004 were repaired over 60 times, both lemons. Actually Nissan Titan was rated well below average by consumers report in terms of reliability. So there are differences in brand, and Nissan has developed a poor reliability rating, and poor customer service performance. Bottomline customers are holding Nissan accountable, and they will continue to suffer losses until they develop a quality product with quality service.

It all depends on how you want to look at the numbers my fine feathered friend. #1 Toyota just registered a drop in profits. Big deal.
My business profits can go up or down or sideways quarter to quarter, I'm still very successful.
Phil Edmonston (Lemon-Aid) recommends the 2006 Titan, his highest rating. I put every bit as much emphasis on his writings as I do on CR'S.
Your blanket generalizations make no sense.
My family (immediate and extended) own 4 Nissans dating from 1997 to 2007, and all are good vehicles, costing little to maintain.
Our local Nissan dealer offers good customer service. That is who we deal with. We have no complaints.
That is my reality.

Not me, two Nissans, both lemons, and even worse customer service at both Nissan dealerships in town. I'm talking the worst customer service you could imagine. Basically, ignoring saftey concerns, and not just that but would deny a problem would exist and turn around and call me a lair. Versus honoring the written warranty. Also, when you actually did get them to acknowledge a problem, they wouldn't fix it properly. I remember taking my Nissan Titan in after the instrument cluster lost power while driving and the truck wouldn't come out of drive. They had the vehicle for 3 days ..... "unable to replicate fault" of course they didn't even look at it and just returned it to me. Next thing you know same fault, stuck out in the middle of nowhere on christmas day. I'm glad to see that customers are taking their business elsewhere and Nissan experienced a 54% loss for the quarter.

A 54% drop in profits, not a loss. Nissan is a fine company.
The last time I checked, dealers were independent franchises.
I don't think they like you.
I took my business elsewhere, bought a brand spankin' new Nissan Frontier. Runs like a charm.
Mine is our family's fourth Nissan and we still own all 4 dating back to 1997.
All ( I mean all ) car companies make good products, and some less so.
Of all 7 cars/trucks I've owned, all have been good.
What do you have to say about Ford, or Mazda, or Volvo, or Honda, or Toyota, or a 63 Rambler Classic.
I'm goin' for a drive.

Personally, I think Nissan ranks bottom on my list. Of course, Nissan doesn't like me because I held them accountable to the written warranty and federal and state regulations. I think lemon laws are great and protected me against the poor Nissan products(x2) and poor Nissan customer service. Again, I'm glad Nissan experience a 54% quarterly loss. Maybe that will cause them to get their act together, build a quality product, and not treat their consumers poorly.

These wheels are alloy but chrome plastic covers are molded to these wheels. I have pictures of the chrome wheels and the ''cladded wheels'' they look the same but if you tap on the spokes not the center cap or spray with a water hose you can tell they are not alloy. Better yet I would bet that they will melt if you put a flame to them. Ford Chevy and Dodge do this as well to cut cost and other Nissan dealers know about this. I am afraid of the dealer now and will not go there for service because of the way they spoke to me for fear of them doing something to the truck out of spite. I just think the dealer should tell the buyer or put plastic chrome covers instead od 18'' chrome CLAD wheels on the window sticker If it were a KIA or Hundai I would expect it but 30,000 for a truck with a chrome package should have just that not plastic don't you agree??

Absolutely. Nissan should honestly disclose the correct information. However, Nissan gets away with this by saying "all our dealership are independently owned and operated." I have heard this excuse so many times from the Nissan Motor Corporation that it makes me suck. In fact, at one time I was looking at a 2006 Nissan Altima and the dealership was quoting me a good price; however, I was cautious because it was a Nissan Dealership. I went home and found out this Nissan was recalled for engine fires. The Nissan dealership did not disclose that information, and just tried to passed the problem on to me. I think Nissan as a whole, as represented by their independent dealers, have lost all creditability. I mean if you have to start deceiving people in order to sell you product than your company has issues.

Welcome to the real world. What has supposedly happened to you could happen to anyone, no matter which car company or dealership one has dealt with. You pay your money, you take your chances. You actually think that other companies or dealerships don't deceive to sell their product? You might as well chuck stones at the whole auto industry.
