350Z 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,000 miles


I own a anniversary M/T edition 2005' Nissan 350Z. I am having a oil consumption issue w/ the vehicle. I ran the car for 3,000 miles and when I brought it in for the next oil change after I bought the car it was down to only, 1/2 of a quart of oil in the engine. There was never any indication of the oil being low in the cockpit. The motor did start making noise so I stopped running it and brought it straight to the shop where they informed me of the 1/2 quart of oil only in the engine. I started a report w/ torrance, ca Nissan. They started a oil consumption test. I lost 3/4 of a quart within the first 1000 miles. I have to go back again after the next 1,000 miles. This is not moral. They have a bad product.

350Z 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 2,200 miles
We purchased our 2005 Nissan 350Z on 4/15/05. When we purchased the vehicle we were told how reliable the Z was, and how they never have any problems. We found that statement to be untrue. On 5/16/05 with 612 miles on the vehicle I made my first visit to service. This I was not happy about. The vehicle needed a new steering angle sensor assembly, and mass air flow meter. Ok I figured lets get it done and over with and move on. On 7/1/05 I make my second visit to the service department. This time the matter is more serious. I have noticed my oil pressure gauge was dropping down to zero. I checked the engine oil on the dipstick and noticed it was empty. I was concerned because the car is not supposed to have an oil change for at least 3months or 3000 miles (dealer states 3750 miles). I was not at either. I take the vehicle into the dealership with my complaint and also tell them about the vehicles bad idle. They look into it and change the oil. The vehicle was about a quart low. I expressed my concern with this because the vehicle has so little miles. The dealer stated that in order for them to determine that vehicle is consuming oil they would need to perform another 2 oil changes and document the amount of oil lost. I also had a concern with this. The vehicle during its first two months of ownership was used as a daily driver.
