18000 0 ITB05-002b. Both rear wheel areas exhibited clicking noises during starting from a stop, both forward and reverse directions. Repaired via ITB05-002b instructions -- dealer applied lubrication to driveshaft flanges. 
33000 370 Piston boots on rear brake calipers had holes/tears. Rear calipers were replaced. 
35000 200 Rattle in roof behind driver seat. Had to remove nearly all interior trim plus rear seat to get access above headliner. Found loose bolt holding sunroof rail to sunroof bracket. Applied loctite and tightened. Total time: 8 hours. $none Dealer couldn't find clutch rattle when pedal pressed in. Probably release bearing, left it alone. Release bearing - replaced under warranty Found 1 broken radiator fan, replaced under warranty... Recommended/replaced 2 belts for $200 (my mechanic says no way that was needed). 
57000 9 Foam-backed leather trim on interior door panels started separating at top of trim area. I bought foam-compatible spray adhesive and fixed it myself. It lasted about a month and has started to peel again. 
65000 500 Front brake calipers were loose on their fully engaged pins, rattled over bumps. Can't totally blame the car since I had high-friction pads and "spirited" driving. OEM calipers from online dealer were ~$500, but I put on a big brake kit. 
66000 522 Replaced failed master cylinder (brakes). Installed good OEM-quality (but not Nissan) part due to faster delivery time. Nissan was over a week to wait.
