Repair and replacement parts can only be produced at a certain pace. The supply has to be spread among many car brands. Demand is simply too high for that many units to be supplied as quickly as you would like them to be.
I completely understand that demand has totally outstripped supply for the parts. However, what I cannot wrap my head around is why communication has broken down so terribly, both between manufacturers and dealers and manufacturers and owners. Apparently the promised timeframe for a fix has slipped from mid-October (the initial promise in Nissan communications) to as late as Q1 2017.
I'm beyond frustrated trying to make my car safe to drive again (I'm teaching my teenage son to drive, and need to be able to sit in the front seat with him. Not going to do that with bits of metal waiting for me.)
First-world drama? Certainly. I totally get it. But it is my world, and its a pain... a potentially dangerous pain.
