I have a 2004 350Z with 27,000 miles. The clutch has gone out. I do not ride my car hard. In fact, I am still on my original tires. Has anyone else had problems with their clutch going out before it should? Nissan claims this is a wear and tear item after 12,000 miles. The dealership told me to call 800-NISSAN1 and they would send an engineer to check out my car to see if there are any other signs of me driving it hard, and if not, they could determine it is a faulty clutch. After over a week of them not calling me, they finally did and told me they won't send an engineer unless an accident happened where Nissan could be held liable. Does anybody have any suggestions or similar stories?
