The purpose of this letter has to do with the flicker information that they have retrieved. When I asked if I could review their findings, I was told that the information was for their use only. I know this has been discussed before but it's my car and the data was in my car. Do I not have the right to this informa tion? I want to know what happened, as the car has the technical ability to give me this information and I paid for this technology.

Does Nissan have the right to withhold the information? I am sure this will become a bigger issue in the future.
