I don't know how many times I tell people, some things you just should get from the dealer. First two things that come to mind, catalytic converters and nissan cam/crank sensors for the 2.5.

Had a customer come in a while back with a bad converter on a Rav4. I tell them "Most aftermarket converters are only 40-50% efficient out of the box. I can put one on for a few hundred less but your CEL may come back on because of efficiency". It's going to run better because it won't be clogged but you may bet a light. They refuse to spend the extra money then come back furious in a month with the check engine light come on with a catalyst code. Even though I told them it was going to happen. THEY are the ones that wanted to save a couple bucks. And aftermarket exhaust piping doesn't usually fit worth a **** either.

I had another guy tell me the other day that there is no way his crank sensor could be bad on his Altima. The reason being that it's "just a magnet". It is literally nissan's most common issue on that car. They actually make a kit to replace the cam and crank sensor at the same time. He says "I don't trust you guys". Then why the **** are you here?!
