RantF*** You Nissan... Pin

So a few days ago my '08 Nissan Primera starts leaving oil on the drive and looking underneath there's a fair amount everywhere else. Oh dear.

Duely take car into garage and mechanic has a look. Diagnosis: rooted oil seals where the oil cooler assembly mates to the engine block. Mech rings up Nissan to order replacement o-rings.

Mr. Nissan replies that "...we don't supply them as a part, you have to buy the whole oil cooler assembly which is $2,000." (that's NZ dollars in case anyone was wondering).

What the f***! Mech sourced o-rings locally for $40.

I've sent a rude communique to Nissan (like that's gonna do any good), but Jesus wept, what sort of crap is that? They're off my shopping list when it's new car time, which ain't that far away.

[Moved to the Soapbox - Ed.]
If your neighbours don't listen to The Ramones, turn it up real loud so they can.
