I WAS DRIVING THE CAR IN A RAINY STORMY NIGHT NORTH BOUND HWY 101 ON JANUARY 10TH 2004 WHEN MY 2003 NISSAN 350Z STOPPED WITH A HUGE CLUNK IN THE MOTOR COMPARTMENT AND CAME TO A ROLLING STOP TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WHERE THERE WAS NOT MUCH SHOULDER SPACE AND POOR VISIBILTY THAT NIGHT!APPARENTLY THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN BURNING OIL 1QT PR THOUSAND MILES! I DIDNT KNOW THIS FROM GETTING REGULAR OIL CHANGES AT AROUNG THE 3K MARKER! KEPT GETTING OIL CONSUMPTION TEST BUT NO CORRECTIVE ACTION WAS TAKEN BY MANUFACTURER UNTIL I WENT TO THE BBB! THEN NISSAN WAS FORCED TO REPLACE MOTOR, CLUTCH , TIRES WHICH IVE BEEN HAVING ISSUES LONG BEFORE THIS EVER OCCURED ALONG WITH THE WINDOW MOTORS IN WHICH THE WINDOWS KEPT GIVING OUT ALSO! MY VEHICLE BROKE DOWN AGAIN SOME 1000 MILES AFTER THE NEW MOTOR! MY CAR KEPT STALLING AT A STOP LIGHT! I HAD THE VEHICLE TAKEN TO THE NISSAN DEALER WHERE I ALMOST HAD TO FIGHT WITH THE SEVICE REP TO GET IT TAKEN CARE OF UNDER WARRANTY! ABOUT 3K MILES AFTER THE NEW MOTOR WAS REPLACED AND INSTALLED I HAD THE VEHICLE TAKEN TO GET AN OIL CHANGE AND THE CAR WAS ALMOST 3QTS LOW AGAIN! YES THE CAR STILL KEEPS BURNING OIL!NISSAN DID NOT WANT TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT! I KEPT CALLING CONSUMER AFFAIRS WHOM KEPT PASSING MY FILE AROUND TO ONE REP AND ANOTHER. I FINALLY BROKE DOWN 3-4 THOUSAND MILES LATER AND HAVE BEEN FOR OVER A MONTH WITH A VEHICLE THAT DOES NOT RUN AND NO ASSURANCE FROM THE DEALER WHO FIXED MY MOTOR LESS THAN 7K MILES AGO. THIS CAR HAS BEEN GIVING ME PROBLEMS SINCE THE FIRST FEW MONTHS IVE HAD IT.
