In total, Nissan has released eight new Nissan and INFINITI position statements on topics including:

Nissan is also launching a new paint warranty program change. Nissan Group of North America will now refer all U.S.-based warrantable paint repairs to the Nissan and INFINITI Certified Collision Repair Networks. The change recognizes the coverage and quality of the certified networks and its investment in the tools, training, and equipment to take care of owners and their vehicles.
