NISSAN 350Z Wheels problems : 2.
I Received A Notice In The Mail From nissan In The Spring Of 2004 Concerning A Toe Out Condition That Could Cause Irregular Tire Wear On The Inner Edge Of The Front Tires. I Took My Car In On 7/29/04 To The nissan Dealer & Asked If This Was Going To Be An Ongoing Problem With The Z & Was Told,”no, Once It Is Adjusted, It Will Repair The Problem”. Supposedly Fixed, With New Front Tires And 1 Year Later, I Returned To nissan With The Same Issue. I Questioned Them About The Previous Year Service & Was Told “i Probably Hit A Pot Hole And That I Needed An Alignment,which I Was Charged For, But My Concerns About The Tire Feathering Were Ignored. After Some Research I Found That The “03 Z Was Manufactured With This Factory Defect Which The Newer Models Don’t Have. This Tells Me That This Is Fixable. Being A Severe Safety Issue, The Factory Setting Of The Toe Adjustmentwhich Causes Feathering On The Inside Front Tires & Their Yearly Needed Replacement Is Clearly The Liability Of The Manufacturer, Not The Consumer! What Can Be Done About This? *jb
