NISSAN 370Z Power Train problems : 3.
Base Model. Manual Transmission. Stock – No Aftermarket Enhancements. On Freeway Attempting To Decelerate (shifting Down From 5th To 4th) Clutch Pedal “disappears” Into The Floor Board. This Marks The Beginning Of Problems With The Clutch Pedal Having A Mind Of It’s Own. Transmission Hard To Shift 1st And 2nd Gear. Barely Made It Into Dealership Next Morning. Dealership Only Has A Tsb To Replace The Transmission Fluid. Fluid Changed, Drove Away. Problem Returned 2/7/14 And Continued To Get Worse For Next Few Days. Returned Vehicle To nissan Dealership On 2/12/14 Where It Is Waiting For Parts (clutch Slave Cylinder). nissan Corporation Tsb Recommends Replacement Of Clutch Master Cylinder At Same Time Of Clutch Slave Cylinder, However, Dealership Has Not Made Mention Of This. Part Supposedly Won’t Arrive Until 3/3/14. After Further Research, The 370z Suffers From This Clutch Slave/master Cylinder Issue On A Consistent Basis. Current Car Has Only 7,600 Miles. This Is Covered Under 3/36 Warranty, However, The Issue Is Dangerous Because It Can Happen So Suddenly And I Would Reiterate That This Problem Is Apparently Common. Who Waits 3 Weeks For A Clutch Part Unless nissan Corporations Is So Back-ordered On 370z Clutch Components That nissan Cannot Keep Up With This Repair Demand? nissan Needs To Re-engineer This Clutch Master/slave Cylinder Issue And Recall These Cars To Get Them Fixed Properly. *tr

I Was On The Freeway And All Of A Sudden My Clutch Pedal Loses All Pressure And Drops To The Floor While I Was Trying To Downshift To Slow Down. My Car Would Not Let Me Out Of Gear And I Had To Stop While In Gear Causing The Engine To Cut Off. This Caused Me To Lose All power Assisted Brakes. I Was Exiting And Trying To Slow Down. I Almost Caused An Accident And Had To Swerve To Avoid Hitting Cars Ahead Of Me While Still Traveling Around 50 Mph. This Is Very Dangerous And There Have Been Numerous Complaints About This Part. *tr
