Traction Control System problem #3

2004 Nissan Quest van - I was traveling 55 mph and all of a sudden the van had no power it just slowed down, the steering froze and it stalled in mid-traffic. I didn't even have enough notice to pull off the side of the road. Worse of all, the brakes didn't work I slammed on the emergency brake and looked for a curb to coast into and stop. I took the van in to the dealer. They looked at it and told me they needed to replace the throttle body. After replacing the throttle body with a new one it took them over 6 hours - the mechanic returned and said the new throttle body would not communicate with the computerized system, so he took out the new throttle body and put my old one back in. Now I'm being told it is possibly the ecm not sending power to the fuel injector. As I checked on the internet, this is caused by the computer getting corroded from the location due to a poor seal leading it to give out anytime. It costs around $1200. The ecm is part of the emissions systems and as such should be covered for 8yrs/130,000km. My vehicle has 93,000 miles. A number of folks have complained to Nissan as this is a serious safety hazard and imany of us transport small children (in my case, my grandchildren). If I lose power on the highway I have no way to steer or brake. What can we do? these vans were purchased to cart large numbers of passengers. Do we have to lose a small child's life before action is taken? is this situation not as serious as the current Toyota brake situation? thank you for your attention.

Traction Control System problem #4

Michelin pax system tires on a 2006 Nissan Quest se. We have the michelin pax tires on our minivan and they are constantly losing air, are very loud and stiff, and worst of all are very poor and dangerous in snow. We have not had good luck this past week maneuvering our minivan in any type of snow or on any slippery road surface. Our vehicle can not have any other type of tire because of the system that is installed from factory and we only have 21,000 miles on the van and need new tires which cost on unbelievable amount of money (over $1200) for replacement tires when they are still very new!!! no deaths or injuries yet and we hope there never are. However, we are not able to replace our tires every year for that cost and from some other people we have talked to at the tire stores and at the dealership, it sounds like we will have to get new tires about every 20-30k and that the tires do not handle well in snow or rain. Well, sounds unsafe to me! nor do they hold air very well so my little kids and I are always trying to get air in the tires at the local gas stations. Absurd! please help.
