If you already paid for repairs to the steering column lock, Nissan will reimburse what you spent as long as you can show proof of repairs. Several months ago I replaced the oem tires because I was old they were worn out and were the cause of steering wheel vibration above 60mph. First started with having low and dirty oil and making a weird noise even after it has been serviced. I had the same issue this week and turns out that unit needs to be replaced. The keys I was using had warned down so much that they were not turning the ignition.
A police report was filed. Unfortunately, when I lost this key, I bought another one and reprogrammed the car, so I had to pay a locksmith to come out and reprogram. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that after replacing 2 engines in a 6 month period to know my car is a lemon.

Many have opted to shut up for a free repair because in end its just about them.
Prior to the crash, she noticed that the vehicle would stall while driving at any speed. This sent the vehicle back across to the right side of the road into a concrete curb and over into a grassy area before the car came to a stop. A new service campaign means defective steering locks will be fixed at least in some models Nissan owners have been fed up with not being able to start their cars.

Nissan has lost my respect due to the non caring nature they have represented. Wanting to make sure this is correct and my steering lock is not simply broken this would be a problem if it decided to start working while being towed I called Nissan.
In further reading, I found out that this is a common problem and that there was a period of time where owners could have this fixed. Maybe I'm not doing it correctly? My 2005 Altima steering wheel is stuck in the locked position and the ignition key will not move. I'll ask the dealer see what they say about it as I've a minor issue with a creaking drivers seat that needs lubed or something. They had no clue for why. That does not work in the Versa it does not seem to lock when I turn the wheel? I just tried that with the key in and set to lock no matter where or how far I move the wheel it does not lock. I also tried putting the fob into the slot to the left of the steering wheel, but nothing different. The failure mileage was 54,000.
When I felt the sudden action, which was like I had run into an invisible wall, I then hit the brakes attempting to stop the vehicle. Tires were rotated for the first time in April 2006 service. Unfortunately, the extension appears to have ended on March 31, 2015. There's no click or stopping of the wheel it freely moves around and around. It will slam into second, third and even fourth gear once it gets warmed up and take several seconds for the vehicle to engage and adjust the speed. I am very concerned about her safety. The steering wheel keeps shifting to one side the guys at the wheel alignment place told me it's the rack and pinion.
I really appreciate all the info posted in this forum, but I need a little more detail. Then on Jan 22 I was told I needed a new steering wheel to help with the sound and vibrations.

So today my wife informed me that we have this issue on our car. Nissan agrees to 'service campaign' to fix 2009-2010 Nissan Altima and Maxima steering locks.
Replaced the rack and pinion, and the hose, and still having issues. There was no indication that this would happen in the years leading up to when it occurred. I need to know if the part next to the transmission has a recall? At 60 - 65 mph I heard a loud and steady humming sound under the hood and a whistling sound through the wheels.

I had an older key that I had lost a year ago, but found it recently, tried it and it turned the ignition. Making contact with the service manager was unsuccessful, even after leaving message. On December 30, 2005 at approximately 11:54 am while exiting highway 59 South on the ramp to beltway 8 North in houston, Texas the steering wheel failed to perform in the normal way.
