I have a Japanese auto magazine. Can't read it because it's not printed in English. Anyway, I seen an interesting picture of a button on the console next to the seat heater controls. It's also a rocker switch like the heater controls. On the center it has A/T printed on it. The front end of the switch says POWER, and the back end says SNOW. I assume the car is an automatic because the picture does not include the shifter. The mag is dedicated to the all new 2003 Fairlady Z printed a couple years ago. Hmmm, wonder what that control/switch is all about?

I'd be willing to bet its the same type switch found on some MB-USA models, that was W/S.

W = Winter, starts the car in 2nd gear to reduce wheelspin.

S = Summer, starts the car in 1st gear for normal traction driving.


Sounds like Nissan has this as an option to override the current system, as you can't start the car in 2nd with sportshift mode. It automatically uses 1st gear.
