Interestingly, the Q45 wasn't nearly as annoying outside Michigan, according to Gillies (who drove one in California), contributor Ronald Ahrens (who took ours to Omaha, where no one understood it, either), and online editor Greg Anderson, known for his frequent, casual, high-mileage interstate jaunts. All noticed a marked improvement in ride quality, cornering, steering, and damping. In every state, though, throttle tip-in remained a nuisance. We noticed it in the pilot cars and mentioned it to engineers, who said they would fix it. They didn't. "I nearly gave myself and my passenger whiplash trying to get back up to speed coming out of a slow corner," wrote Misaros. Takeoff, concurs senior editor Joe Lorio, "is syrupy unless you really boot it." We found it overly noticeable in stop-and-go traffic, as irate motorists dove into the hole in front of us that opened every time we hit the gas and nothing happened.

Component
ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING
Summary
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, THE CIRCUIT BOARD FOR THE CRANK POSITION SENSOR OR CAM POSITION SENSOR MAY HAVE AN IMPROPER SOLDER JOINT DUE TO SOLDER DEFORMATION CAUSED BY HEAT STRESS ACCELERATED BY THE EXISTENCE OF FLUX RESIDUE DURING THE SOLDERING PROCESS.
Consequences
THIS COULD CAUSE THE "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" WARNING LIGHT TO COME ON, CREATE A NO START CONDITION, CAUSE REDUCED ENGINE POWER, OR CAUSE THE ENGINE TO STOP RUNNING WITHOUT WARNING DURING VEHICLE OPERATION, WHICH COULD RESULT IN A CRASH.
Remedy
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CRANK POSITION SENSORS. CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR(S), AND IN SOME CASES, THE VARIABLE TIMING CONTROL SENSOR(S). VEHICLES INVOLVED IN A PREVIOUS RECALL CAMPAIGN, 01V357, ARE ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS NEW CAMPAIGN. THE REPLACEMENT SENSORS USED IN THAT CAMPAIGN ARE ALSO AFFECTED. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN ON DECEMBER 22, 2003. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261 OR INFINITI AT 1-800-662-6200.
