My csc - clutch slave cylinder gave up on me putting my clutch petal to the floor unable to change any gears. I was stranded on the road for hours. Nissan must fix this issue with 370Z with manual transmission the csc is made of plastic and should (must) be replaced with one made my metal. Many hundreds of 370Z enthusiast have this issue.

Bought a brand new 2014 Nissan 370Z back on May 9th 2014. Amazing car with one really bad weak link, csc. My csc (clutch slave cylinder) went out at 23,309 miles. Luckily I was parked right outside my house. My clutch peddle sank to the floor and would not engage. Had to tow the vehicle to my dealership to have them determine it "would not be covered under warranty" due to "misuse of the vehicle" from a "burnt" flywheel. I did some research and hundreds of 370Z's with manual transmissions have had the same issue with their csc. There are pages and pages of discussions on forums about this plastic csc. We believe there should be a recall on this and should be covered under warranty since hundreds of consumers have had the same issue and Nissan does not want to cover it under the powertrain warranty when in fact is a power train issue on their part.great car, bad csc, bad customer support by Nissan Consumer Affairs.

370Z 6-cyl

  • 2,970 miles
This incident occurred at a busy intersection during heavy traffic. Manual transmission sunny, air temp approx 75 F. the vehicle had been driven appox 0.25 miles & 2 minutes immediately prior to event and parked for the previous 4 hours. Driver partially engaged the clutch and shifted to 1st gear to initiate forward movement of the vehicle from a complete stop. At a speed of approx 10mph the driver fully depressed the clutch pedal (to disengage the clutch) to coast momentarily with traffic and shift to 2nd gear. The driver partially re-engaged the clutch with throttle to resume acceleration with traffic. The clutch pedal failed to return to the fully engaged, default, position during operation; the clutch pedal returned only approximately 1/3 of nominal travel distance. Concurrently, the clutch did not engage and slipped with regular throttle applied for the shifting condition. Pumping of the clutch pedal did not restore normal clutch pedal position nor normal clutch function. Failure of the clutch to properly engage and disengage prevented the driver from fully and safely controlling the vehicle. Driver forced transmission to neutral position, indicated to surrounding traffic and coasted to shoulder across multiple lanes. Driver noted that no apparent obstruction to the mechanical operation of the clutch pedal within the cabin. Driver noted an odor, presumably from overheated clutch or hydraulic fluids. Substantially normal clutch pedal and clutch function returned within several minutes. The vehicle was driven several miles and parked for an hour. Normal clutch pedal and clutch function were noted after this hour.
