Default Nissan Frontier/Navarra Chassis failures

First I've heard of chassis problems this severe in the Nissan. I know Toyota has replaced thousands of Tacoma chassis. I know two dealers around here who always seem to have one available...

Is this the same chassis that Mercedes will be building their pickup on?

Actually this is the older generation, the new one - the one to be shared with Mercedes - has apparently been extensively reworked. But surely nevertheless there are now a few nervous Mercedes product managers out there....

A genuine Nissan QC problem? Shocking. Just shocking.

Nissan have known about the problem for a while now apparently:

Why they haven't issued a recall by this point is beyond comprehension given it's clearly a safety issue. Plus it's terrible PR.

Ha no, I feel if I'd ever get a pickup, it would be a ford or chevy/gmc.
