#2530 of 2936 Voluntary '07 6MT Sedan Clutch Slave Cylinder Campaign
Jan 15, 2008 (2:17 pm)
Only a few 2007 6mt sedans are affected, see VIN line below:
ITB08-001 January 12, 2008
VOLUNTARY SERVICE CAMPAIGN
2007 G35 6-MT CLUTCH SLAVE CYLINDER
CAMPAIGN ID #: P7253
APPLIED VEHICLES: 2007 G35 Sedan (V36) with 6 speed manual transmission
APPLIED VINs: JNKBV61E*7M 700138 to 727518
NOTE: Use Infiniti Net to confirm campaign eligibility
Infiniti has determined that on some 2007 G35 sedan vehicles equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission, the clutch slave cylinder assembly may not have been manufactured properly. This could result in the operating force of the clutch pedal becoming light, and in some cases, could result in improper clutch operation. Infiniti is conducting a Voluntary Service Campaign to replace the clutch slave cylinder assembly with a new improved part free of charge for parts or labor.
Infiniti has assigned identification number P7253 to this campaign. This number must appear on all communications and documentation of any nature dealing with this campaign.

#2531 of 2936 Bluetooth Issue - 2007 g35x
Jan 15, 2008 (3:30 pm)
I've paired my Moto Q 9m (on Infiniti's approved list) with my 2007 g35x.
I started getting an error occasionally - when starting the car, the display screen in the car would indicate "Private Caller," the on-screen buttons (e.g., Hang Up) would appear but not do anything (as if they were disabled or locked), the car would "ring," but there would be no incoming call (the phone was silent). After about 20-30 seconds, this error would go away on its own (except for one time when it did not, and I had to turn the car off and then back on - like rebooting my car).
The dealer replaced the radio unit, which changed, but did not eliminate the problem.
Now, when the problem occurs, I get the same screen (Private Caller, with buttons that don't do anything), but the car doesn't ring, the phone is still silent, and the problem fixes itself in about 10 seconds. The times when this error occurs seem to be "grouped" together - last week, this error occured 5 times in one day (each time I started the car that day), but has not occurred since.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
#2532 of 2936 2004 G35 Sedan VDC, Slip
Jan 16, 2008 (1:19 am)
My VDC, slip, and check-engine-soon lights came on along with loss of power. So I restarted and the VDC and slip lights went off and the power came back, but the check-engine-soon light stayed on, after letting the car sit for awhile that light went off too, the car is running fine now, but this is the second time it has done this in the last 1000 miles. Any ideas?

Could be a faulty sensor in the VDC system. You should have the car scanned and see if some error codes come up.

Mine too. I'll be picking it back up from the dealership in an hour or so. I will reply with difference (if any) in clutch feel / feedback / etc.

I noticed no difference in the car post recall work. I had no problems before the recall either, so YMMV.
They replaced three parts and the brake fluid:
CYL ASSY - Concentri - 306A1 - JK40C
CYL ASSY - Concentri - 206A1 - JK40A
Insulator & Bolt Kit - 34115 - CD026
Brake Flui 320Z - 999MP - A4132P

My letter was part of the post when I got home yesterday. Haven't had any problems with the clutch that I've noticed so far, which is good news. It will be a week or 2 perhaps before I will take it to the dealer.
#2538 of 2936 Break-In Period Question
Jan 25, 2008 (11:20 pm)
I wish I had done more planning and research before I brought my 2008 G35x sedan home.
Twice during discussions with the salesperson I asked what the breakin period was. He said 500 miles each time. The car now has 1500 miles on it, however since the 500 mile mark, the engine has been briefly (i.e. 5 - 7 seconds at a time) spun to 5000 three or four times.
I purchased the car on 12/31/2008 and have been reading the owners manual from day one, but just got to the section that talks about not revving the engine past 4000 rpm until after 1200 miles. A stupid oversight in retrospect. I should have hunted this info down first, instead of relying on the salesperson.
Now I wonder what the consequences might be? The car still seems to be running fine, but I have the sense that I could spend the next 5 years figuratively "looking over my shoulder".
The fact is that I am VERY careful with my car most of the time. I am generally a "5 mph over the speed limit" driver on the road. I hate to admit it but, in town but I accelerate in a "elderly" fashion (1) because it swills premium unleaded at about 18 mpg and (2) because it's been nearly 20 years since I owned a performance car and I want to keep it forever.
If anyone can tell me candidly what the potential consequences are for having accelerated above the recommended 4000 rpm ceiling prior to the 1200 mile mark, I'd be appreciative.
