I paid to have mine fixed last week for $1200, called Nissan support and they set up a case number, only to call me this morning to say "sorry, your car is out of warranty". I called Nissan Consumer Affairs and they said someone would call me within the hour. They did and they asked me to fax my bill from the dealer of the repair and they said a check is on the way- FULL REIMBURSEMENT.

My question is...should I pull the fuse on the replacement SLU lol.

Yes, kinda, they will ALL fail at some point or another... So it's up to you to ride it out, or just say f-it, and pull the fuse

My question is this, If there is a recall and the replacing part fails will they repair again for free? since its recall?

I'll put money on, no.

Right now, and one of our Nissan dealers can confirm, but the recall is probably for Revision A&B for '09-'10...

Meaning that if they fix it with a Rev D. and THAT goes out in another 3-5 years, you'll still be screwed.
They'll probably give the standard 12mo/12k mile warranty on the replacement part

Spoke with a local Nissan dealer in Australia and they say this problem does not effect Australian 370Z's as they are right hand drive and use a different steering lock. Sounds like crap to me. Has anyone in Aus had the Steering lock problem?

Even if they keep fixing it for free forever, there is a high risk of being stranded when it fails.

I had mine replaced a few weeks ago, I cut the brown wire just before I had it towed to the shop, they didn't reconnect it when they replaced it, and it's gonna stay that way.

Thumbs up Victory!!! Nissan Recalls faulty Steering Locks!

I just received a call from Nissan USA informing me that a recall was issued Friday March 8th for the Steering Lock which has plagued so many faithful Z owners.
I had been burning up their phone lines since March 4th when I became a member of the "Dreaded Steering Lock Club". I held little hope as this situation has persisted since 09 with countless Z drivers left on the side of the road to tow their precious Z's in for a thousand dollar + fix for a problem that Nissan was perfectly aware of.
I now need to see about a refund from the dealer for the $1100 plus I spent and I hope any of you in the same boat do the same.

Finally, that was one of the reasons I didn't pick up a Z last year.

It doesn't include my 2011 (unless they add more VINs to the list later). I'm glad I have already pulled the fuse.

I suspect you're absolutely correct... I asked my local dealer what the replacement part was, but they don't even have that info yet. I assume it's Rev D or something that is still garbage. This is a half-assed recall IMO
