Description of Repair unable to perform
The number I called was retrieved from the NASTF site regarding Nissan special tools. I was interested in the price of a "Consult". I was told by SPX that I had to be a dealer to purchase this tool. I called my dealer, NOB/Nissan of Brandon and was told that they didn't sell these tools. At least the dealer had never , up until now, sold one to an outside/independent shop.

Per our conversation the Consult II is available for sale, the Part number is J-44200 price $6265.18 US. The NATS card is available to Nissan/Infiniti dealers or Authorized affiliates of Nissan only. Per Nissan's direction. Updates are provided by Nissan. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. I can place the order for you at any time.

Nissan has received you’re NASTF complaint regarding the sale of CONSULT-II to non-Nissan/Infiniti dealers or service personnel. The Nissan policy allows the sale of CONSULT-II to anyone (NATS security card excepted). SPX has been provided with this policy and we have sold a number of units to other than Nissan/Infiniti dealers. Nissan is researching why SPX failed to perform according to our policy and instructions in this case. We will provide a more complete answer to you as soon as we are able to collect the details from SPX. Please let me know if we can be of further assistance while we research your complaint.
