Fuel sensor doesnt work. Nissan decided it would be best to cover some vehicles but not others with the identical problem.
I have had nothing but problems out of my vehicle and now we are the end of warranty, by 5 months and I am told that I need a Canister Vent Control Valve and a Evaporation Control Canister for my vehicle that has been well taken care of, oil changes regularly, washed and pampered. My vehicle has 77,711 miles on it and it is going to cost me 700 dollars to get it fixed! It was just in the Nissan Dealership for the Gas Sensor that went bad in JUNE, a recall on the airbags in MAY and now this. Nissan has gone down hill and I will be sure to pass it along, that Nissan's now deals with "Throw Away" vehicles! You pay 30 grand for a vehcile to last you 5 years, really???? WOW! I am beyond upset at how Nissan handles their customers, vehicles and warranties! NEXT TIME I WILL BUY A CHEVY!

Had erratic fuel gauge readings for 40,000 miles (I purchased used with 40,000 already on it)... Check engine light just came on so I purchased an OBD 2 scanner and got the P0463 code related to a bad fuel level sensor.

I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER NISSAN!!!
to start I'm on my 3rd transmission as Nissan had the leak problem with the coolant leaking into transmission, they recalled it and replaced the transmission but the dealership didn't do something right and in less than 8,000 miles later the transmission went out again!!! they replaced it AGAIN. then the cam shaft sensors went out and the truck would stall at some points then at others wouldn't stop even when standing on the brakes. NOW the fuel level sensor is malfunctioning, and their is a noise like a wobbling roar when your driving it feels like something is broken in the suspension (so I dumped a bunch of money into it to try to fix it) I replaced struts and U-joints but the wobbling roar is still there. I'm at my wits end with it, this truck is a nightmare!!! I wish that Nissan was as reputable as Toyota and would buy back their lemons! I WISH I HAD BOUGHT A TACOMA!!!

Gas was reading just below half. I stopped to fill it up and the needle didn't move. I shut the truck off and restarted it and the Check Engine Soon Light came on and the fuel gage dropped to empty.
