recall for the manuals due to the 2nd gear grind
Was it the exact same problem? Or something different?this roll out has been full of.......PAIN
If anyone has been following this from the 370z/G35 days this was a problem that affected numerous cars throughout the years. I hope a thicker trans fluid swap is what Nissan can do to alleviate this even though it's definitely the synchros
Seems it's the same issue yes the shift to 2nd will grind and feel like it won't go into place due to the synchros.Was it the exact same problem? Or something different?
So I'm seeing people take deliveries of the Z... so is this stop sale legit?
I have not. I called to ask for info since the website said they had a Z proto - I'd been hoping to be able to at least go sit inside or something to get a better idea if I want to order one or not. But the manager said they weren't taking orders yet (aside from 6 "reservations" made on the first inventory they get shipped, but they weren't taking any more reservations). The proto is apparently owned by a 'private seller' (I assume someone working there), and he said the seller had decided not to sell in the short term unless there's some insane offer that comes along, so for now it's just there on their showroom floor fenced off. He also added that he couldn't sell the proto to me even if I did make an offer attractive to the seller, due to having a stop sale related to the transmission, which is where I got the info.
Wow! That sucks! And will be expensive for Nissan. Wonder what's different in the replacement transmission.
