The Canton Mississippi plant has been a real trouble spot for Nissan. Four of the plant's five vehicles have landed on Consumer Reports' unreliable list,
Among the Canton-made vehicles that landed in the unreliable category of Consumer Reports' study -- which was based on surveys of 1 million consumers -- were Nissan's Armada sport utility vehicle, Quest minivan and Titan pickup, and the Infiniti QX56 SUV. The Altima sedan—also built at Nissan's old Smyrna, Tenn., plant—was the only Canton-made vehicle that was not near the bottom of the list.
"It's difficult to actually put a reason on why they are so unreliable," said David Champion, director of automobile testing for Consumer Reports, a publication of the nonprofit Consumers Union. "But it is a little bit worrying when the worst plant in the U.S. is actually a Nissan import plant."
