Unhappy Z Looked Awesome on a Tow Truck (Sarcastic)

Tried to start my Z today and nothing. Towed to Nissan dealer and its the steering wheel lock mechanism. Dealer says its on national backorder and it may take up to two weeks to get. What a complete joke!! Its not if its going to happen to everyone but when!!!

I think this is a call for me to check the lock mechanism on my '09... This is happening way too much.

This sucks... In a way I'm glad my Z is in storage... but I'm afraid of what's in store for me in the spring.

Hopefully this ordeal will be as painless as possible for you.

I was on here reading about everyone having this problem last week and today it happens to me. Dealership said at leat two weeks on the part and that the conservative estimate. Then I ask if I can get a car to drive and they say they have to get it approved. I am thinking "oh it better get approved"!!!! Will have more details from them on expected time on Monday. They did pay for the tow.

I hope they give you a loaner! You should raise hell if they don't.

Yup, still looks good on a flatbed.



Sorry to hear about another one. Time for a recall by Nissan for these locks on the Z.
