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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2009 Nissan 370Z Owner Comments

problem #2

I have a 2009 370Z. It is daily driven (no clutch dumping, burn out, track, racing, etc.). the clutch is oem. At 16,158 miles I was leaving work. I was getting ready to pull out of the parking lot when the clutch pedal sunk to the floor. The more I press down, the more pressure was lost. The dealership diagnosed the problem as a failed concentric slave cylinder. This is probably the same part that is used in the '07+ 350Z with similar issues. Thankfully this problem occurred in the parking lot. The pedal sinking to the floor was sudden and without warning.

Nissan 370Z grinding noise when clutch is released. No matter in which gear you release the clutch, there is a grinding noise. The mechanics at the dealership have tested other new 370Z, and they are all the same. My Z is only at 3600 miles.
