I have to say though Nissians are great cars untill they **** up...

Let us know how the repair goes..
Ok....well I was happy....

I dropped it off.....and called yesterday to see if it was done...
It was!
SO....I ask....whats the damage?
They reply $97.00....I'm like HUH? The White Villager?....Yep!
So thats WAY better then the 800-1200 they assumed!
They said that was the only stud broken (which was one on the front) and its fixed.
I asked if they turned off the CEL and they said go do it dumbasses !!! LOL
I call today...another $162 on top of the $97....they claim a heater wire was broken...Im assuming to the o2 sensor.
So i go along with it.

I open my hood when I get home to see all they did was put a nut on the broken stud...the threads were sticking out by 1/4 inch when I took it there and i knew that.
BUT I didn't expect them to put a nut...but to replace the stud!

So.....Does screwing a nut onto a broken stud warrant a $97 charge?

Im just a little pissed and who the hell knows if they just charged me 162 bucks to turn my effin CEL OFF!
