all because of a new silly 'pedestrian protectoin system' which pops the bonnet up upon frontal impact.

Because showing off your engine to the guy you have just driven into will make him forgive you... I like Nissan's logic ;)

Jebus! That's a little bit insane. Had a high opinion of this car until now, looks like owning one could be a massive pain in the rear.

Citroen, fords, nissans, hondas.. if they are using them on one they will be using them on more, wouldnt be suprised if all new models get them it's all about the ncap and emissions at the moment

and screwing extra wonga out of the customer. I suppose its one way of getting 'older' cars off the road, just make them hellishly expensive to repair and write them off

Thats shocking :shock:

Quote:They have also (as has been posted by the owner), spoken to the owner personally about this and provided a nice gesture in the form of a jacket. As far as Nissan and I are concerned this is the end of the issue.

I wonder what an 11 grand jacket is like??
