I got my 350Z at Ingram Park Nissan on Loop 410W near Culebra in San Antonio. Excellent service and very professional, they did not try to BS me one bit. The guy that sold me the car also gave me free oil changes for the life of the car, no cost. The service department is ok so far, they did not complain about my mods, they actually liked them

I take my car in to service at Thornhill Nissan in Fort Worth. If you go there ask for Ron in the service department. He has always been pretty straight with me, and never tried to fight me about the TSB's

Good Dealership....Peoria Nissan in Peoria, Arizona. Their Fleet Department is great and they do not screw around. They worked with a friend of mine and he got a 2004 350Z for $750 below invoice, $4000 below sticker. He was pretty happy. I would recommend them to anyone. Ask for Nicki, she will hook you up!!

@ssholes: San Leandro Nissan, San Leandro CA. If you break down here, get towed somewhere, anywhere else.

Incompetent liars.

Nissan of Union City (GA) can go suck a big one as far as I'm concerned everything they have attempted to fix they have f'ed up. They took off my front bumper to fix a problem with the headlight and ended up knocking over my bumper and scratching it. However all they could do was try to buff it out for me?

Bad Dealer: Colonial Auto Center in Charlottesville, VA. I went in there in 2002 to order a Z and they wanted to add a $5000 "market adjustment". I declined and said I would shop around but told them to call me if they dropped the adjustment. I few weeks later they got the car that I was looking for. Went in and talked to the Sales Rep. and the markup was still in effect. I told them I was going to another dealer that had the same car below MSRP. At that point the Sales Manager wanted to talk to me. I thought that he was going to match their price. Nope! He proceeded to tell me that the Dealer was going to add alot of hidden charges and try to rip me off. I left. I called a few weeks later and the markup was dropped but the car had been sold. The Sales Manager said they he would try to find me a car and call me right back. I never heard from them. I will NEVER buy a car from them again (I bought my last car from them) but, their Service Dept. is very good.

Good Dealerships
Santa Cruz CA - Santa Cruz Nissan Dodge

Had the car I wanted brought from another dealership 80 miles away and still sold it to me for the price he originally quoted through email for a different Z he had on the lot. No up-sell, no pressure delivered to my driveway.


Bad Dealerships
San Jose CA - Capitol Nissan

Nothing good has ever happened to me at Capitol Nissan in San Jose. They are rude, lazy, and lack anything even close to customer service. Bad experience buying cars, bad experience servicing cars, I'll never go back and they are three miles from my house :(

When I test drove a Z for the first time the salesman made a raciest comment about asian drivers, told me to roll the window up during the test drive and generally knew very little about the Z or any of the other cars I was considering (STi, Evo etc). He and the Sales Manager acted surprised I would compare them.

Take you car in for service, stand around for 20 minutes before someone comes out to tell you you should have been there fifteen minutes ago, now it's 3:15 and too late for an oil change. Come back tomorrow before 3:00 and we can get you in. Return the next day at 2:45, stand around for 20 minutes before someone comes out to tell you you should have been there fifteen minutes ago. Do you see where this is going. The oil change ended up taking fifteen minutes then another 20 for the service manager to process my paperwork so I could pay.
