TL CONTACT OWNS A 2003 NISSAN 350Z. THE CONTACT PURCHASED THE VEHICLE ONLY FOR LONG DISTANCE DRIVING. AS SOON AS SHE BEGAN DRIVING THE VEHICLE, SHE SMELLED RUBBER INSIDE THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT. THE DEALER STATED THAT THE SMELL WOULD DISSIPATE AND WAS PRESENT BECAUSE THE VEHICLE WAS NEW; HOWEVER, THE ODOR REMAINED. WHILE DRIVING 60 MPH, THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT SHIFT FROM SECOND INTO THIRD GEAR. THE FAILURE OCCURRED WITHOUT WARNING. THE VEHICLE COASTED TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND WAS TOWED TO THE DEALER. THE DEALER STATED THAT THE CLUTCH AND THE FLY WHEEL WERE BURNT. THE CONTACT CALLED NISSAN CUSTOMER SERVICE TO ASSIST WITH THE COST BECAUSE IT WAS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY; HOWEVER, THEY DENIED HER CLAIM. SHE WANTS NISSAN TO ASSIST WITH THE $2,300 REPAIR COST. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 17,000. UPDATED 11/7/08 UPDATED 11/13/08.
