Well, I got a call from the Nissan Consumer Affairs Specialist, and she claims the paperwork required us to take the Z into a body shop to fix the camber?? There was no discussion of that. And another question would be WHY would I have to take the car to a body shop? I understand (correct me if I'm wrong) that the camber cannot be adjusted on the 2005 350Z. Smells like an engineering defect to me?? Anyone else?
So I will be calling a lawyer under the Lemmon Law. Anyone out there with a 2005 having Tire wearing issues?
#2063 of 2071 How Many of the model were built

I have a 2006 350Z Roadster GT convertible with silverstone finish and Orange leather seats with mesh ventilation.
Does any one know if I can find out how many 06 350Z's were built with this appearance package?
Also the black leather drivers door interior handle is showing signs of wear in the finish. Is there a fix or leather polish that will restore it's appearance.

36k miles on first set of tires, yes the tread is getting thin compared to brand new but no issues thus far, I drive it like an old lady though.

I have about 18000 on my 07 and the treads still look good and I also drive like an old lady. Hey thanks, and do anyone know what I can use on my driver door inside handle to restore the black finish, it just seem to disappear and I have white spots there.

Have you asked the dealer? Seems an odd problem. I have a 2005 roadster, bought in April of '06, and don't have any problem like that at all.
I had to replace two tires at 18,000 miles and I was very upset about that. Next time will try something that has a better longevity rating.

#2069 of 2071 Getting tree leaves in the air intake box stock 2005 350z
Jun 30, 2010 (4:46 pm)
I noticed that in my air filter box are dead leaves and such. I was looking for a diagram of how the how the air box and tubes are designed and where in the front fender or front quarter panels they sit... can't find it. Does anyone know where the front part of the stock air intake sits and how I'm sucking up leaves? Thanks!

Hi. Am new to Edmunds and forums so not sure this is correct place to start.
I had a 2005 350Z (purchased in fall of 2004). No major issues until past July 2013. Had new rear suspension installed at dealership due to damage to original parts (my bad ran over curb). Picked car up on July 22 and noticed steering was unusually tight but did not return to dealer (my bad again). 2 days later made lane change on dry road, no speeding, sunny weather, good pavement and car rear wheels unexpectedly started to skid to right. Steered into skid and rear wheels fishtailed back to left. Tried to steer into skid and car continued to spin 360 degrees 2 times across 3 lanes of traffic before hitting inside concrete barrier facing oncoming traffic. Thankfully only minor injuries and nobody else involved. Have driven this Z and previous 300Z for over 20 years combined and never had this reaction from vehicle even on icy or snowy or wet roads. Insurance totaled the car. I could not get insurance or anyone else to inspect rear suspension but found some items online that indicated this could be a faulty install on the toe out. Am trying to find anyone else that might have had this situation or type of accident and it traced back to faulty install and/or faulty toe out settings on new suspension. Can anyone help me? If this is not the appropriate place for this post please advise which forum or blog I should go to. Thanks
