Bet you didn't hear about this one either. A Automotive manufacturer actually stopped produciton of 2 of it's vehicles because of "excessive oil use" which could cause a fire.
Yep, I didn't hear about it on the news nor read about it in the newspaper. But of course there is no media bias towards Japanese Auto Manufacturers, nope none at all.
Reports of excessive oil use in some 2006 four-cylinder Altimas and Sentra SE-Rs have led Nissan to stop selling the vehicles. The company, in a release issued last Friday afternoon, said that the problem could lead to engine fires and vehicle damage. The company did not specify what specific defect leads to the problem, but it did note that up to 100,000 vehicles built from January to May of this year could be involved in the recall, based on 215 reports of oil consumption and 17 reports of engine fires. The affected vehicles will have their warranties extended to seven years or 100,000 miles.
Nope, no bias at all.
