Why did you have to foot the bill of $300 for a recall?

I think most of the concerns my fellow members have are related to poor prior experiences with some nissan services departments and the incompetence of some of the staff and techs involved that makes us not want to have those types of people tearing into our car. I'll probably have this done eventually, but only after the service dept I use has done this recall on many, many other Z's. I don't want them using my Z as a test subject and then wondering why they've got some extra parts and screws left over when their done putting it back together. of course if I start seeing some news reports of guys with Z's being lit on fire at gas stations then maybe I'll do it quicker. but the NHSTA gives you 10 yrs from the date of sale of your car to get the recall done so I've got some time.

also here is some more info on the recall. kinda interesting stuff.

Thats why i do my own oil change. Too many screws to lose or left over by those crack service dept oil change "techs".Not to mention their forgetting to put on a new crush washer when re-installing the drain plug.

I agree with you there. There is no way i'm taking my car in to Nissan for this job. They couldn't even do the "fuel door won't release" TSB without bending my door all out of whack.[/QUOTE]

Then will trade my service techs for yours any day. Just be forewarned that they dont work on Z's. They just do oil changes.

I am not efffected by this recall since I have a 2005 but your comment sure does make me feel good at all about them working on my car.

I have been doing my own oil changes and the car now has ~7000 miles on it but now it is going to the dealer.
1) I need a warranty repair because the drivers side rug gets soaking wet after going through a car wash .
2) There is some kind of required 5000 or 6000 mile service that I am supposed to have done.

This will be the FIRST trip to a Nissan dealer for me ever.

i think the majority of us owners have all had bad experiences with warranty service...even non-warranty work. in all my years of having vehicles, about 25, i have never had a good job done with my cars except for maybe an oil change. but as someone else mentioned, i would rather do the oil change myself too.

one time they left a wrench in there, and another time they left the oil cap off...and most times, screws were missing and things not tightened down. this was not with my z but with other cars...still my trust level is very low. now i am not saying this for all dealerships, but if anyone in sactown can refer me to a good service department i might start off with an oil change and then make the decision to have this done.

this is by far the most work i will have to have done to date...lots of stuff they can jack up. needless to say, i won't be having this done right away...unless people start blowing up as in one case

Darn - I best go check my vin#. RegardingReposting -> if you've read it than skip it, if you've not, than read it. No big deal, but trying to correct this problem w/ the Z recall is, so go see your dealer, for shizzle dizzles.

No. I think Infiniti dealers give you loaners when you have work done but Nissan dealers don't. You get what you pay for.

it depends on the dealer. I believe pretty must all infiniti dealers will give you a loaner, although I don't know if they will if you didn't buy the car from that dealer. but with nissan dealers it depends on the dealer policy. some will give loaners some won't.
