Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

problem #2

350Z 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission

Driver's seat covered in leather started showing fatigue very early on after purchasing the car. Matter was taken up with Nissan dealer, car was bought from. Eventually a hole wore through the leather on the bolster of the drivers seat. Nissan to date has not made any attempt to cover defective upholstery.

My complaint is actually with Nissan of America. I just purchased a new 350Z and have a problem with the driver seat shifting and knocking. The dealearship agreed there seemed to be a problem and replaced the driver seat track but the same thing still happens. They said to contact Nissan usa which I did. Nissan usa said they would get right back to me and still have not. It's been over 6 weeks now and they haven't bothered to return any of my calls or email. My file number at Nissan usa Consumer Affairs is 4001914. The dealership has also filed a case with their tech line and the incident number is 556922. The person that handled the call is timothy and his employee number is 3662. In a nut shell I would say my complaint is about Nissan inability to fix the problem with the driver seat. I feel it is unsafe and very annoying (it shifts around and is not solid). They in fact did try to repair the vehicle but were unsuccessful. Now Nissan usa is saying that it is by design the way it is. I would appreciate any help you might be able to provide in this matter.thanks, gordon mcelroy
