Voodoo_Priest added a topic in Interior / Exterior370z 2013 steering column lockYou can imagine my disappointment when I found out that the steering column lock is not uniquely my problem. Nissan Australia are aware of the problem and have done nothing to assist their supporters.
I have looked on-line and seen that the majority of countries (UK, USA, Canada, South Africa... etc) have issued a recall. Wake up Nissan Australia, there is a problem with the steering lock.
After having the 370z delivered to Nissan's doorstep, they then give me some lame excuse that the issues I have experienced (total lock down of the car) relates to the ECU and I am required to pay $1500 to get it back on the road. I am not sure how accurate their research and analysis is but I was left with no option - to have or not have a car. Difficult choice.
i am not impressed with Nissan's response to an obviously well publicised problem around the world. The fact that Nissan Australia refuses to acknowledge the issue is even more concerning. I am now concerned for my safety and worry this issue may occur again.
I will be seeking legal advice and believe that a class action may have grounds if a supporter of Nissan is injured because of a misdiagnosis of the issue.
Only time will tell.
