More Info

I recently bought this brand new car on July 26th 2018. Everything was fine with my car, running smoothly , etc.  Last month, I went in for a routine oil change and I was told that there was oil all over my car and the dealership at the time for some reason or another blamed me, saying that I was the one responsible for this as I did not close the gas valve for pumping gas enough, which in itself made no sense.  A light came on in my car and I called the dealership, I was told if it did not turn back on again, I would not have to worry about it. I drove 3 and a half  hours to visit my family on 2019-03-22 and my car started smelling like burnt meat so I called my dealership and they told me to go to the nearest Nissan near me. Upon arriving there, I was told that I could not drive my car to go back. The engine creates too much pressure which in the end makes oil spray all over the alternator which then fries the part and unluckily for me, the part is backorder with no return date in sight. The foreign dealership where I was told me that this was a known issue with all Nissan kicks and it was not new despite a recall not being officially announced yet. My home dealership did not want to do anything for me, they told me to call Nissan corporate and they would cover 50km of my over 300km drive for a tow truck and would cover a rental car for 35$ a day but only after the third day. I moved to the city where I am to make a better life for myself and to start a government job, moving and starting fresh has already put me in debt, I don't have the funds to pay a rental car and they told me the chances of me getting a loaner are small. I'm only creating this page in hopes of being able to have access to a rental car. I'm a good guy, don't smoke, don't do drugs, don't party and i'm 350 km away from  my family. I will also accept any kind of legal suggestions
