Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Dongfeng Nissan released a recall plan involving a total of 689,000 vehicles at the end of February. It is the defect in brake that triggered the recall. However, it is odd that the quality complaints were still escalating after the recall released. Several car owners said that the reasonability of smearing silicone oil remains to be discussed. They hope that Dongfeng Nissan could change the master cylinder and prolong the maintenance for brake system.
Industry insiders analyzed that since the problem of brake was much relevant to safety, auto manufactures will adopt effective measures to solve this problem, thus they can ensure the reliability of their brand images. However, car owners seem to disagree with this explanation, requesting Dongfeng Nissan to make a guarantee for the reliability of smearing silicone oil.
Dongfeng Nissan denied the issue on the complaints escalation, responding that smearing silicone oil is an effective and proved measure to counter the brake defect.
Started on Feb. 28, 2018, the recall involved a total of 689,031 vehicles, covering the new Nissan Lannia, the new TIIDA, the new-gen TIIDA, the Sylphy and the all-new Sylphy models manufactured between Apr. 6, 2015 and July 21, 2017.
In terms of the involved vehicles, it is said that Dongfeng Nissan will add special silicone oil on the master brake cylinders free of charge in order to prevent the oil seals from reversing. As to the models whose oil seals had reversed, Dongfeng Nissan will change master brake cylinders to eliminate the hidden danger. Dongfeng will adopt the improved parts on the newly-produced model.
According to an industry insider, the recall may impact sales of Dongfeng Nissan in a short term, but will not exert bad results on the company in the long run. Dongfeng Nissan also stated that it still saw robust growth momentum in the previous two months of 2018, compared with the same period in 2017. Statistics shows that the company posted a YoY sales growth of 6.4% during January and February, 2018.
