q....I would think that any Nissan dealer would be able to pull up any service/warranty work by your VIN #. You're knowledgeable, so I'm certain you've already asked them to do that.
I know that any car I've owned over the past 5 years or so had the service records (at least dealer service) tied into a master data base that could be accessed anywhere in the country by any dealer.

that's what i would have thought.
she said she could look up warranty work, but not service work (unless it was serviced at their dealership, which it wasn't). maybe she didn't know what she was talking about or maybe its a nissan thing or maybe a dealership thing. I have no idea.

....or maybe a lazy service writer?
Any way to go to Nissan's WEB site and punch in the VIN# to get info?

I have this same problem with my 2004 Z. The local dealership replaced my front tires at 9,000 miles and now at 18,000 I'm hearing the same grinding noise with my tires as before. The dealership advised me to call Nissan's 800 number to file a complaint and see if Nissan would do anything. Nissan says that my car is beyond the 12 month/12,000 mile warranty and this problem with my tires is not covered under my extended warranty. What Nissan did with the 2003 Z owners was to extend their warranty for 2 yrs. The suspension problem which causes the tires to cup or feather has not been remedied. They claim they have not had many complaints from owners of the 2004s regarding this tire problem. So all you 2004 owners need to file complaints with Nissan. 1-800- Nissan 1

I had the 2004 touring with the tire problem. Third set of tires at 20,000. They always replaced mine. I had a letter from Nissan that there was an extended warrenty till 36,000 for the problem. I done a lemon law and it was bought back by Nissan in April for every penny that i had in it. It had 25,ooo when i returned it.

Hello all. I got a 2006 350z in Feb 06 and I am having major problems with the rims spotting black and discoloring slightly. I've tried every chemical to try to get it off, but it almost seems as though it is coming from under the clear coat. I took it to the dealer and they said that it was environmental and that its not covered. Has anyone had this problem?
#13 of 49 Will 2005 18' chrome rims fit 2003 base model
Dec 14, 2006 (10:09 am)
I have a 2003 base model with silver alum rims on 225/50/17 front and 235/50/17 rear tires. I called the dealer to see if I could get Nissan chrome rims. They said that the chrome rims came out in 2005 and were only in 18 inch size and they did not know if they would fit. They called Nissan and got back to me and they said Nissan did not recommend putting the rims on, with no explanation as to why.
Now, I know 2003 models above base model came with 18 inch rims, although not chrome. Are there any brake or suspension mods required on the base model in order to use these rims ??? Is there any reason these rims can't be used ???? Thx for any responses. Rick
