Complaint - Suspension

350Z TOURING MODEL PRE-MATURE TIRE WEAR. I ORDERED MY CAR ON 01/2003 AND TOOK DELIVERY ON 04/2006. AT WHICH TIME I DISCOVERING THAT NISSAN HAD PUT OUT ITS 1ST TSB BULLETIN DATED 01/23/2003. REFERENCE # NTB03-006. I HAVE 15,434 MILES ON MY CAR. I DRIVE IT VERY LITTLE AND THEREFORE, JUST STARTING TO EXPERIENCE THE PROBLEMS THAT I'VE BEEN READING ABOUT. I HAVE TAKEN MY CAR TO THE DEALER AT LEAST THREE TIMES FOR THE SAME RECALL AND WAS TOLD THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE FRONT. THE LASTEST RECALL NOTICE WAS DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST 2005. AGAIN I TOOK MY CAR INTO THE DEALER AND WAS INFORMED THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG THAT APPLIED TO THE RECALL NOTICE WHICH INVOLVED THE FRONT SUSPENSION AND UNEVEN TIRE WEAR. THE SERVICE REP TOLD ME AGAIN THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH MY CAR. I DECIDED TO GET UP UNDER MY CAR AND DO MY OWN INSPECTION. WHAT I DISCOVERED WAS UNBELIEVABLE, MY TIERS WERE WEARING ON THE INNER TOE TO THE POINT THEY WERE ALMOST BALD AT 12,500 MILES. I RETURNED TO THE SERVICE REP. AND POINTED THIS OUT, HE IMMEDIATELY CHANGED HIS MIND AND ORDERED ME NEW TIRES AT NISSAN EXPENSE. AT 15,434 THE TIRES HAD BEGUN TO WEAR IN THE SAME MANNER. I TOOK THE CAR BACK TO THE DEALER WHO WANTED ME TO PAY FOR AN ALIGNMENT. I REFUSE TO PUT ANOTHER DIME IN THIS CAR. HE SAID THAT I WOULD HAVE TO CONTACT NISSAN. I DID AND NOW NISSAN WILL NOT FIX MY CAR UNTIL I GET A RELEASE FROM ONE OF THOSE LEMON LAW ATTORNEYS THAT I HAD CONTACTED OUT OF DESPERATION. THAT'S ANOTHER STORY AND NOW I'M FIGHTING THEM TOO. I TOLD THE LAWYERS THAT I WANTED MY CAR REPLACED BUT LET THEM PERSUADE ME INTO A 4,500 MONETARY VERBAL AGREEMENT. WHEN I RECEIVED THE TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT FROM NISSAN I REFUSED TO SIGN IT AND RETURN IT TO THE LAWYER FOR PAYMENT. THE LAW FIRM CONTACTED ME AND INFORMED ME THAT A VERBAL AGREEMENT IN THE STATE OF MARYLAND IS THE SAME AS A BINDING CONTRACT. I AM IN THE PROCESS OF WRITING LETTERS TO ATTORNEY GENERAL, FEDERAL TRADE, BBB NISSAN AND THOSE SO CALLED LAWYERS WHO CLAIM TO REPRESENT US.
