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.

Slave cylinder and clutch problems with my 2007 Nissan 350Z. I bought the car used in October of 2008. A month after purchasing it I took off from a stop light and the clutch slipped very bad. I looked into, it, saw the slave cylinder was a recall and brought it in. I asked about the clutch and replacing it and they said no because the clutch is a wear item. Yes its a wear item, but no clutch should be slipping at 20,000mi. The reason the clutch slips is because of the slave cylinder. Even after the recall was the done the clutch still slips and the dealership refuses to replace the clutch

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan 350Z. While driving between 20-25 mph, the engine revved and the rpms increased to 4,000 when the vehicle came to a stop. The clutch pedal extended to the floor when it was depressed. The contact smelled a burning odor outside of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection and they stated that the vehicle was operating properly because the failures could not be duplicated. The failures recurred on a separate occasion. The VIN was unable to be entered into the system. The failure mileage was 20,000 and current mileage was 21,000. Updated 07/17/09 the consumer stated starting from a complete stop, revved to 4,500 RPM let out the clutch, and the pedal remained stuck to the floor. Then there was a burning smell. Updated 07/20/09.

Clutch goes hard and doesn't allow you to disengage clutch....once disengaged it will not come off the floor to go back in gear. This prohibits the driver to reengage clutch...happens sporadically after 30+ mins of driving...almost crashed twice...

While driving in heavy stop and go traffic, the clutch pedal stuck to the floor of the car and would not return to it proper upright position. I had to work my way off the freeway with out the use of a clutch. I had to stop and start the engine as I made my way off the freeway. After setting on the side of the road, the clutch returned to its normal upright position and has worked since. I'm avoiding heavy stop and go traffic. The problem has not happened since.

Multiple clutch/transmission issues. Issue involves the clutch pedal sinking to the floor and loosing nearly all, or all of its pressure. Clutch fails to return to normal until the car sits until cool. First incident was during normal driving; while going through a interception a car ran the red light, when I downshifted to a lower gear to more, the clutch failed to hold the gear and fell to the floor, the other car managed to stopped but I was idle in the road unable to move. Second incident involved traffic going up a local bridge crossing the Mississippi river. The clutch again gave out after a few mins of stop and go. I had to pull the ebrake to keep from rolling backwards and was unable to continue uphill for roughly 10mins. No injuries or damaged accrued from these events, but they were each close calls. I have not yet to bring the car to my dealer due to my work schedule. To date many others are having the same issue.

The clutch on my 2007 350Z sounds like it is going to blow up. In traffic I am embarrassed as everyone looks around to see where the noise is coming from...I know some noise is common but this noise goes over the radio at a high volume, this cant be normal or safe sounds like its going to crack in half...
