#152 of 549 Update class action suit
Jan 25, 2005 (10:36 am)
My dealer reimbursed me for the second set of tires after I contacted the regional office. I discoverd Nissan extended all 2003 350Z front-wheel alignment warranties for 2 years from in-service date which includes tires, not the 2004s. They were unable to tell me what happens after expiration, Nissan has not informed them. They are working on it. Don't buy a 2005 350Z folks, until you know for sure if the suspension design defect has been fixed.

So, after the 2 year period the customer will be responsible for new tires?
#154 of 549 Bad Paint Job Ultra Yellow
Jan 28, 2005 (1:19 pm)
I have owned many cars. This latest one my 350ZR is great so far. I bought it in November 2004 in Ultra Yellow. New color for 2005. Well to make long story short. No problems yet except for excessive paint chipping.. You touch the car and it chips!. Mainly on the hood. So far I spoke with the dealer and they stated it was due to road debris. Ok yeah I know what hit the car to cause the chip but why is the paint so fragile. After I noticed this problem on my car I started searching the net.. Postings everywhere. I have had the car now for two months and have about 15 chips. This is really crazy. I now have a case number with customer affairs. Will keep you posted. Anyone else seeing this problem. To me I think it could also be a problem with the new paint color. Two friends have a silver and black on 2003 and 2004 and donít have one chip on the hood. Any advice would help when talking to the Nissan folks. BTW none of the chips are to the metal only to the primer. Thanks

#156 of 549 Chopping out tyres
Jan 31, 2005 (11:41 am)
Hi there to everyone from New Zealand....
I brought my 350Z "Track" in early January.
I have read on many sites, (Esp. USA), about problems with suspension set-ups causing rapid tyre wear. The dealer and others that I have talked to here have no knowledge of this problem.
One of the first things that I did was to put "V" grove directional radials on as the old tyres were 18K old but the tyres that came off were o.k.
How long is it before people notice undue tyre wear and what is the best fix?

When I asked the dealer what happens after the warranty expires they said they didn't know, they have not received any information from Nissan. I'm waiting to see if the tires feather again, it usually appears after 3,000 miles on my car. I'll call Nissan back as well and see what they have to say. I talked to an attorney and they think I have a case, we have to wait for a 3rd repair to claim the lemon law. The whole thing is a damn nuisance. I just want them to fix it!

I own a 03 350Z. Tire roar started about 3 months after purchase. I put on about 1120 miles a month. Another friend had to have tires replaced after 1500 miles. Another gentleman had to have his replaced around the time the first TSB came out in June 04, he owned at 2003 basic. I don't know how many miles he had. Trust me you will notice, the tire roar starts out suble, but gets progressively louder. Sounds like a warped tire up front. Right now new tires and alignment is the fix.

My paint chips very easily. I have a black 04 Z convertable. Anyone else have these problems? Do I hear a recall? I already fixed one probelm for 150. but I don't want to keep shelling out money?
#160 of 549 Big problems with tires
Feb 08, 2005 (1:53 pm)
I have just sold my 2003 touring 350Z. i could not get over 5000 miles on any tires. My car had problems with all the tires I tried. A friend of mine sells tires and said that he puts them on the 350 all the time and ha yet to find one the works well. I hate it because I lived the car but i could not afford the tire problem.

Can anyone verify that the excessive tire wear issues have been resolved on the 2005 models? I am looking to purchase a Touring model in the next few weeks.
