The contact owns a 2006 Nissan 350Z. While driving approximately 25 mph on normal road conditions making a left turn, there was a loud sound outside of the vehicle. The contact observed that the front end of the vehicle had fallen on the ground and the front passenger wheel disengaged from the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic. The technician stated the failure was contributed to a defective rim. The vehicle has not been repaired. The contact has concerns of the significant safety hazard.

350Z 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 24,000 miles
I own a 2006 Nissan 350Z with chrome wheels. Three of the wheels are cracked and the car is unsafe to drive. Through the process of trying to get Nissan to replace the wheels, I learned that the wheels on the car are after-market re-chromed wheels. Nissan is not being helpful in getting the problem resolved by replacing the wheels. I am referencing NHTSA defect action number PE06050 and engineering analysis EA07005.

350Z 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

: the contact stated while driving 65 mph on normal road conditions, the front right wheel separated from the vehicle and hit the right passenger door. The chrome wheel center was observed to be still attached to the base with the five nuts. When the other wheels were inspected, cracks appeared in the front and rear wheels on the driver side. The dealer stated the cracks from the wheels were due to the chroming process. Updated 08/29/06
