*Voluntary Service Campaign ** Steering Lock Fix**

Just got my notification from my dealership. It was just a postcard telling me to come in for recall # P3208...no letter, nothing explaining what it was. Called them today

Just got my notification from my dealership. It was just a postcard telling me to come in for recall # P3208...no letter, nothing explaining what it was. Called them today and they said the part was in stock. Anyone know if Nissan would cover any rental cost seeing as how I'd have to leave the car there on a weekday?

Many dealerships have free loaner cars now for warranty work, I would call of the dealership and ask before going in.
If not, many times insurance will cover the cost for a few days. Mine will pay out 30 days a year for rental car if my car goes into the shop as part of my insurance with no extra cost to me.

I've got an 8 am appt this coming Friday. Have no idea which part they're installing but I'm sure all the dealerships are on the same page (knock on wood) and that it will be the "D" part.

I'll let you all know how it goes.

Can you tell us where you saw this information on RevD. I searched and could not locate anything.

I found many threads regarding RevA and RevB (which was the version I had as well), but nothing on RevD.

I too got the RevD recently due to the recall. FWIW, I was told at my dealership, they admitted they replaced many RevA and RevB, but have yet to replace any with RevD.

At the moment they are saying they will cover the cost of the part, impressed with their fast response to the issue, the car is still at the dealers waiting to be diagnosed however I'm 99.9% sure it is this issue as what's was happening is as exactly as everyone else has described.

Good to hear. Fix and then pull fuse or order the bypass cable and be done with it forever!

Took my '10 roadster in for service - my service guy (who's really great) said "there's a recall about to come out to replace your steering lock. There have been some problems. Let's go ahead and replace yours." I've been reading about the problems here but haven't experienced any myself - but no time like the present so they swapped it out. He said there's also an extended warranty on the recall/replacement part.

Good call to just go ahead with the replacement. By the time you experience problems, it will be too late.

Wow. I never thiught this day would come.

If you don't mind the hassle, put the fuse back in, have dealer replace the ESCL and then pull the fuse again. Forget about it if you don't want the hassle.

I have a Rev D and my car is not part of the recall. But I know of several forum members who had their ESCL fail once, got it replaced with Rev D and then had it fail yet again I'm not risking it; my fuse was pulled months ago...

I would love to take mine in with the fuse pulled, just to see how they would react, but no telling how that might complicate things. I'll be putting my fuse back in before going to the dealer.

I'll be getting the new ESCL (SLU) and then pulling the fuse again. I figure it might be worth a few bucks when I go to sell the Z if I can tell the potential buyer that it has the latest and greatest ESCL revision. Can't hurt.

This just in!! Latest ESCL for the 370Z!! Don't miss an opportunity to drive around in style with one of these installed on your 370Z!!

Disclaimer: will fail eventually and does not allow you to drive anywhere.
