True, salesmen are generally uninformed from any sort of maintenance or mechanical know how. Anything to sell a car and hit those numbers! hahaA lie. It changes around 60,000 miles. Check the maintenance book. Those salespeople are so full of crap.
While all transmissions are sealed, they DO lose small amounts of fluid over time by slinging it out as mist past the seals. Why you hardly ever see a dead bone dry transmission. As well, all mechanical contrivances put wear particles into their operating fluid, impossible not to. You change fluid to get clean fluid into trans and the worn metal out. Only an idiot would suggest that a transmission is lubed forever, it is again impossible.
And if an axle seal goes bad, you can lose all of the fluid in a whopping hurry. Not common but it does happen. Same with the front seal inside, it goes bad on a few too.
Likely that you have no dipstick to even check the fluid level, Nissan has removed most of them. It sells more cars when the fluid gets low and the transmission burns up. Great idea, Nissan.
What does one expect in a new Trump world, there is no truth at all and the lemmings love it.
Meh, I like Trump but am a person who can discuss such things in a professional, adult, and non-emotional manner while also recognizing the fact that every politician has said and continues to say stupid things. If referencing the border emergency, please note that Obama stated the following as a senator, "We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country.". Of course, this is assuming you lean left. Other than that, I do find it amusing when Trump (or any other president/politician) is brought up with no real relevance. But, I digress and too return to the subject at hand.Exactly. You have to make a decision yourself based on doubletalk.
Sounding more and more like Trump to me, how can one stupidly pretend to know the 'truth' when both it and utter falseness ('emergency' and 'I didn't have to do it right now' are diametrically opposed, or you don't understand english) are mixed in the same sentence? We do recognize that as a mark of insanity right?
One does understand the words yes and no and more importantly the vast chasm in between or they don't and what a witless life ensues then.
Forgive me for the politics, I just loathe an idiot..................I'll stop now.
I would assume it is to protect themselves from people who know nothing about towing and proceed to overload the vehicle. It would be hard for Nissan to prove the car was overloaded by simply having a tow hitch attached. Sure, they can see extreme wear in the CVT and possibly motor but was that from a defect or pulling too much weight. Not fair for those who simply want to add a bike rack or some other minimal attachment but in these days, you have to cover all bases and courts have decided that the burden of proof is on the dealership/manufacture when denying warranty claims to customers.I would consider towing a small motorcycle camping trailer like those you see Goldwings pulling. They're light and will be mostly in the slipstream of your Versa so you won't be fighting as much wind resistance. Those shouldn't put much stress on your drivetrain as, for instance, a Coleman popup camper would.
And again, you ignore the difference of your comment of a class II hitch and and class I hitch and having 0 relevance to the discussion of a hitch voiding the warranty. Nothing was said regarding court proceedings cost but if it were to end up in court, my comment is still fact and the burden lies on the manufacture. Nissan can deny responsibility but if you hire an attorney that specializes in Lemon Law and the associated legalities such as the Magnusson-Moss act, you can include your court costs in the demands.'Magnuson-Moss act CLEARLY set precedent that it is the dealer responsibility to show that an aftermarket part caused the damage. The ENTIRE burden of proof is on the manufacture to show that you actually pulled and overloaded the vehicle - the connection between the failure and "act" must be thoroughly shown and proven.'
I would fervently hope that one would recognize that all that means absolutely nothing until you have already paid at least enough to get the company into a court of law. Before that the company can do whatever it wants to and they do.
Tongue weight is meaningless if the hay load is too heavy, any tow is a movement of MASS, that does not change with tongue weight. The tongue weight simply modifies the physics of it but cannot make the mass disappear.
