EXCESSIVE TIRE NOISE WAS NOTICED, TOOK TO DEALER AND FOUND INSIDE OF FRONT TIRES HAD WORN AWAY. DEALER RE-ALIGNED SUSPENSION AND REPLACED FRONT TIRES. LATER, TIRE NOISE WAS NOTICED AGAIN ALONG WITH PULLING TO RIGHT. TOOK TO DEALER AND INSIDE EDGE OF FRONT TIRES HAD WORN AWAY AGAIN, TIRES WERE REPLACED AGAIN AND SUSPENSION RE-ALIGNED AGAIN. RIGHT FRONT SUSPENSION "COMPRESSION ROD" REPLACED DUE TO PULL. TIRES CONTINUE TO WEAR EXCESSIVELY ALONG BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE EDGES. TIRES WEAR OUT IN LESS THAN 10,000 MILES. ONCE TIRE NOISE BECOMES SEVERE, STRAIGHT-LINE STABILITY IS AFFECTED AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. TIRES COULD FAIL DUE TO PREMATURE WEAR IF VEHICLE OWNER DOES NOT INSPECT TIRES FOR INSIDE EDGE WEAR AT ABNORMALLY FREQUENT INTERVALS.

TIRES

5/5/2005 - JACKSONVILLE, FM
FRONT TIRES ARE WEARING EXCESSIVELY ON THE INSIDE. THE CAR IS VERY HARD TO DRIVE AS IT PULLS TO THE RIGHT ONCE THE TIRES START TO WEAR. I FEEL THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. IT RAINS ALMOST DAILY, AND THE CAR IS EVEN WORSE ON SLIPPERY ROADS. I HAVE ALREADY REPLACED FRONT TIRES TWICE AND REAR TIRES ONCE. I HAVE ALSO HAD TO REPLACE THE BREAKS TWICE. THE BRAKES STILL SQUEAL AND SQUEAK BUT THE DEALER SAYS THE BRAKES ARE FINE. ONCE IT WAS ALIGNED THE SQUEAKING STOPPED FOR A FEW DAYS, THEN STARTED AGAIN.

3/4/2005 - ROUND ROCK, TX
ONGOING ALIGNMENT / TIRE FEATHERING ISSUES WITH NISSAN 350Z I HAVE HAD MY TIRES SWAPPED SIDE TO SIDE SEVERAL TIME + REPLACEMENT TIRES AND MANY ALIGNMENTS. THE 350Z WILL NOT STAY IN ALIGNMENT AND EATS FRONT TIRES EVERY 7000-12000 MILES. IT WEARS THE INSIDES OF THE TIRES TO THE POINT OF REPLACEMENT WITH OVER 80% TREAD ON THE REST OF THE TIRE. THEY ARE NOW NOT PERFORMING ALIGNMENTS ON MY CAR EVEN THOUGH THEIR TSBS STATE THAT THEY WILL AND WILL REPLACE TIRES UP TO 30,000 MILES. THEY STOPPED DOING ALIGNMENTS AND TIRE ROTATIONS/REPLACEMENT BEFORE 20K MILES IN MY SITUATION. THE STOCK TIRES ARE UP TO $400 A PIECE, SO THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. THE DEALERS WANT $80 FOR AN ALIGNMENT EVERY 4-6 MONTHS + TIRE PURCHASE. THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE AND NISSAN REFUSES TO ISSUE A REAL RECALL, EVEN THOUGH EVERY 03 350Z HAS THIS ISSUE. IT WAS BLAMED ORIGINALLY ON THE SUSPENSION BEING STRESSED DURING SHIPMENT FROM JAPAN. I HAVE ALSO HAD DUAL REAR AXLE REPLACEMENT, TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT, CLUTCH ASSMBLY REPLACEMENT, JUST TO NAME A FEW. THE VEHICLE BECOME VERY UNSTABLE WITH THE FRONT ALIGNMENT ISSUE. THERE ARE ALSO ISSUES WITH THE REAR ALIGNMENT. IT IS OUT OF SPEC EVERYTIME IT WAS CHECKED.

SUSPENSION: FRONT

2/22/2005 - LAS VEGAS, NV
MY 2003 NISSAN 350Z SPORTS CAR HAS A FRONT SUSPENSION PROBLEM THAT CAUSES EXTREME INNER TREAD TIRE WEAR IN VERY SHORT PERIODS OF TIME, IE, LESS THAN 5000 MILES. THE PROBLEM IS PERVASIVE IN ALL 03 MODELS AS INDICATED ON THE VARIOUS INTERNET CHAT ROOMS. NISSAN IS AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND HAS PROVIDED A FRONT END ALIGNMENT AND LEFT TO RIGHT/RIGHT TO LEFT TIRE ROTATION AND/OR TIRE REPLACEMENT - NEITHER OF WHICH CURE THE PROBLEM (INDICATIVE OF AN ENGINEERING DESIGN PROBLEM). THE EXTREME TIRE WEAR IS EVIDENT AT APPROXIMATELY 4-5000 MILES. NISSAN APPEARS TO NOT HAVE FOUND A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM. REPLACING THE FRONT TIRES AT UNREASONABLE 5000 MILE INTERVALS IS REQUIRED TO PREVENT AN EXTREME ROAD HAZARD.
