Default Going to get my new Nismo today! Couple questions

Hey Guys,
So previously I had a 370z sport 2015 and after driving my truck for a year I decided its time for a nismo as a weekend car. Just a couple questions,
Have you guys had any reliability issues?

Also the dealership I want to go to is about an hour away so I was wondering if I had any issues I can take it to any dealer right?
Thanks in advance

I've owned 3 370z's and I've not had any reliability issues, especially with low miles; the Z is a solid japanese car. And my advice is don't go to the dealership for issues unless you want throw away money. Most issues you can fix yourself if you have basic tools and arms/hands/eyes, do research and you'll have a great experience. Welcome to the Z community!

Same here. Currently own a 370z, G37, and FX50. All relative robust and low maintenance.

I've had my '16 Nismo Tech (still stock) for 2 years, and have only had minor squeaks and rattles to deal with. Ive put about 30k miles on her, and she's been a great little car. Makes mustangs do stupid ****, not that they need a lot of help with that.

Almost 7 years with my 370Z, except for normal wear, always has run great...
Now Track Days (start this year) Autocross, have created some unique problems, but that is only because I am pushing the car... Otherwise it has been great

Owned my 2017 Pearl White Nismo for 1 yr 7 months...ask for an alignment prior to taking delivery...Nissan honors 1 free claim. My alignment was off pretty good...I had a tech change all my hoses to Z-1 Motorsports , red in color...Changed the 2 radiator caps as well the expensive chrome Nismo oil cap...looks like a different beast under the hood. Put about 6k miles on it...clay bar it twice and Keep Griots wax on her. No problems here.

No issues whatsoever with my ‘16 Nismo which I’ve owned for a little over 2 years. Never been to a dealer. I do all my own maintenance.

As long as it's under warranty, yeah. Will go elimination kit if/when it happens probably the next time (I'll pay for it, though will try to demand they install it - that or lemon law time).

I've had my 2010 40th and have 30,000 miles on it. Other than normal maintenance, I've not had any issues with mine, and this is with a few track days a year.

As-far-as warranty or other dealer services, you can take your car to whatever dealer you want to.
