2006 Nissan 350Z Owner Comments

problem #3

I am the owner of a 2006 Nissan 350Z coupe. My car came stock with Bridgestone potenza re050A tires, which have a treadwear rating of 140. These stock tires lasted 22,000 miles, which is in line with my expectations. I replaced them with the higher treadwear re-11 tires, which have a treadwear rating of 180. These tires have completely worn out after only 5,500 miles. I feel Bridgestone has a faulty rubber mixture or else there is fraud in their treadwear methodology. I have not changed my driving habits or ever gone racing in any manner with these new tires. The re-11S need to be investigated for accurate treadwear.

I bought a 2006 350Z in 2007 and have replaced brakes and rotors once already and not 6 months later had to get the rotors resurfaced again. In addition to this problem I have replaced all 4 tires twice. The front and rear were way out of alignment as well. Also, the electrical component that moves the driver seat forward and back is sticking, not always allowing the seat to move.

Sometimes driving, I hear light crackling noise comes and goes. For 9 months checkup, I mentioned it to dealer. He said they test drove it and everything was fine. On sat evening, 8-25, the front rt side of rim cracked & came out bouncing off freeway! scary & dangerous! we just let the car slide and scrape on three wheels off the next exit. I had spare tire put on & slowly got the car back home, in shock! Monday I had car towed to nearest dealer & they weren't able to fix my car because of the wheels. I didn't know why....but manager there called for my permission to have it towed back to my dealer with all charges paid by dealer. I was disappointed, disrespected, mistreated, & lied to. Bought car in good faith & they lied to me some more! I called nis manuf Consumer Affairs & found out that those rims were dipped chrome! dealer had nerve to give me same rims & try to return car back with damage breaking the discs & lower arm. Also repainted the scraped bumper. Have pics of sloppy work with camera phone. I explained to them I want it fixed brand new like when I first drove off that lot with it and I thought they understood. I still need pro to thoroughly inspect car. Although repairs made, I don't feel safe driving car anymore. I said fix car like when I first bought it- before the defective wheel came off with real rims. He ordered & placed it on my car. Sat night, dealer called to pick car up. I asked for invoice and papers. They said come back mon. Asked them to hand write that the rims are stocked & everything new like wanted so I can drive off feeling safe. They said can't. again I left disappointed. Noticed headlights dimmer than before & one side higher than the other. Mon, told service manager about lights. Response, "we're supposed to just replace wheels." Don't know if I have right wheels or not. I need a new car.dealer not concerned with public safety, only profits. I hurt emotionally & physically!
