Officially a "the370z" member | 2014 Nismo
 
Hey forum,

I've been on the370z forum for my 350z HR nismo. Appreciated the community help with Stillen supercharger install and Topgun A-A kit, idle /tuning, and other various issues.

I was waiting for the new Z reveal to see if it would be worth it. I was not a fan, so I officially purchased a 2014 Nismo today via Carvana. Was actually a member's car here and because of Covid, he did me a solid by selling it to Carvana so I can have it shipped. ( thanks again dangerofs)

Will be my 3rd Z. (had a 03 350z Track edition while living in Germany). It is also Red like my 350z nismo. Going to be keeping both. I'll post some pics of the pair when I take delivery Tuesday. Already looking for 2015+ Nismo seats and Husam2012's GTR TT setup for the spring :-)

Congrats Bro, Welcome to the Nismo family!

Thanks everyone. Delivery date is this Tuesday. The Carvana experience has been a little stressful with handling documents. With Covid, call wait times can get annoying. In any case, looking forward to the delivery and examining the Z to make sure all is legit and hoping for no surprises.

UPDATE:

So Went that Tuesday to pick up the Z. Sigh... too good to be true:

*The fact that I had to go and pick it up is completely the opposite of their "to your door delivery"... and they charged me 500 dollars! WTF?

1) The Pioneer deck that dangerofs put it was ripped out at one of their depots. They coudn't even give me a reason why it was done. I'm assuming someone poached it and put the factory one back in

2) Backup camera was also poached... same excuse given.

3) They damaged the front bumper during transport. Bumper was hanging off the fenders. 1/2 to 1 inch gaps. Also Curbed the front passenger wheel.

4) Nismo floor mats are missing. Trunk mat is missing (although listed as coming with them). They will only replace with generic floor mats. Told me to pound sand for the trunk mat. Dangerofs said they were in there. So they were poached as well.

5) They replaced the rear tires with General Tire G-MAX RS's, never even heard of them (driver's rear was mounted in wrong rotation)

6) Front tire thread is down to nothing... I don't even think it will pass inspection.

7) A lot more scratches than what they reported in their "detailed 360 degree" walk through.. load of ****.

So far what this tells me is Carvana does not detail the exterior enough and the depot's are poaching parts out of cars. They did not expect this type of experience from a customer since they never had anyone actually "arrange the sale over Carvana".

I told them to address the issues and they asked me to pick it up again yesterday (now snowing... wtf)

1) They resprayed the front bumper/lip. Looks like absolute garbage. Filled with fish eyes, orange peel, dirt in the clear coat. They wouldn't warranty the work... so who knows how long that paint will last knowing the quality of the job they did

2) They replaced the driver's side bumper bracket, but not the passenger side.

3) They still did not give me damn floor mats. It was pouring out.

4) They did not fix the curbed wheel.

Rusty 10-30-2020 12:20 PM

Not good at all. :shakes head: I would be talking to a lawyer.

Sorry to here that you are going through this and they are NOT holding their end of the bargen. I would walk away from it and get any money Back!! :twocents:

Cyber370 10-30-2020 01:44 PM

I would definitely walk away from this purchase. If you've already paid, I would go higher up and have the sale rescinded. I doubt they would go the lawyer route.

cv129 10-30-2020 01:48 PM

Wow this is a complete opposite of my experience with Carvana, interesting. Best of luck to you. It should be an easy return and money back. Just walk away. Something better out there is waiting for you.

Regular CARVANA practice should be taking pictures of every little, I mean tiny tiny tiny, imperfections. This is bizarre.
