    Not sure if this sounds like a reasonable question or plain stupid – but does sales, marketing and distribution also cover After Sales Servicing?

    Nissan, doesnt have the expertise in Sales and after sales, and next 6 months if they can withstand they will survice otherwise they need to pack their bags and exit India

    Customers will now get a better service, a reliable and authentic service. As a customer I was not able to figure out the exact pricing of the cars. I have seen price invoice different for different customers for the same car.

    Finally……! Hope the things will get better from now on. Hover was a useless piece of s**t. They delivered my car late, one of my friends’ car was sitting in the workshop for months together due to non availability of parts. I hope nissan is making a good move to make things better.
