Would Nissan be responsible for this?

I have a 2004 Nissan Frontier pickup truck.  2wd, 4 cylinder, king cab xe. My passenger side front tire is rubbing against the abs line and it wore down the plastic coating to bare wire. It still has original wheels and tires. I'm guessing its rubbing when I make left turns. The driver side wire is fine. Is there a recall for this? Anyone else have this problem?

    Yeah, Nissan is responsible for a car that has been out of warranty for over a decade, and has probably had a number of non-Nissan mechanics (or non -mechanics) mess with it.

    Fix it, or get quotes to get it fixed.  Avoid taking it to a Nissan dealership, as they are going to be the most expensive.

    After 16 years, the original manufacturer isn't responsible for the frame falling apart without notice.

    If you still had the original tires, they should have ROTTED OUT several years ago

    Contact Nissan and ask.

    Some idiot moved the ABS wiring when doing a brake job. It's  2004 and you've probably had at least 2 brake jobs done by now.

    You will be lucky for Nissan to pay.  Inspect the area.  ABS line clamp is likely gone.

    Not on a 16 year old truck they wouldn't be. If it were brand new, then yes.

    You can look up the recall history yourself.

    Good luck with going after Nissan with your 16 year old truck (with original tires?) . . . be prepared to provide proof that in 16 years that vehicle has never been tampered with, never run over anything that could have dislodged the abs line, and that you followed Nissan's schedule for periodic inspections.

    It certainly does NOT have original tires. 

    Its a 16 yr old vehicle...  Its long due to have the brake lines serviced.

    A sixteen year old truck? The wire wasn't damaged in 2004, it's recent. It's a maintenance issue, not a manufacturer defect.
