Given the old CEO of Nissan had himself kidnapped, placed in a coffin, then smuggled out of Japan in a private jet to Lebanon to escape corruption charges...hard to be surprised by a bit of standard Japanese saving face with this rollout.

So Dan got mad at the forum? He should've known what to expect when entering an enthusiast car forum. The internet is brutal, and car forums are perhaps the most brutal. Sounds like he couldn't stand the heat so had to get out of the kitchen. I don't feel bad at all. I don't see anything that was damaging that would warrant such an escape. He probably should not have entered the lion's den in the first place.

I only blame Dan and his team for irresponsibly hyping a vehicle they knew they couldn't deliver.

There's a bigger reason these things happened, and not all the blame goes on manufacturers.

A certain country dropped a pandemic on the world, and that same country refuses to drop there C-zero policy, which has turned the supply chain upside down for 3 years now.

Publicly traded companies tend to lie in their communications to avoid the inevitable damage to their shares. That means Nissan, or Boeing, or Ford, can't be "honest" to their customers because once the market hears about it, their share values would plummet. They don't want their values to plummet before reports and earnings are officially released, because modern investing makes money daily, the more days you can avoid the truth, the more investment money can be made.
Nissan is still hanging their hat on the supply chain issues. Yes, they still exist but to a lesser degree. Other manufacturers seem to be managing. We now have the new CTR and manual Supra. And then like 5 Z's in the past 2 years...

Too late for me now. They salted the shit out of the roads this morning. Almost like driving on gravel in places.

We don't have snow in Michigan yet, but I am sure it is coming soon. By the time I get my Z, it will be going straight into the garage. If this vehicle had shipped on time, I could have had the entire fall season to enjoy it.

Sadly, I do not think you have to worry about Winter storage.
Spring maybe

It was confirmed to me that my car has been stuck in a Sea Can in Vancouver (well New Westminster where the cars roll into) and there is a QC stoppage. Parts have been sent from Japan and Nissan Canada with some unknown technicians will be fixing these defects. For my part, I cancelled my order due to the terrible handling, increase in price, and interest rate at 8.99%.

Did Nissan give you an estimate for the repairs to be completed

Did Nissan give you a timeline to complete the repairs?

No. QC stoppage is until further notice. Nobody knows. Of the 10 real allocations at my dealership almost all the confirmed orders cancelled their cars due to price and rate and lack of performance. When I saw the Bros4Speed review of the nose of the Z bobbing around I said enough is enough. My 370Z Stillen was way more of a car than this one.

They have totally screwed up….if so many of us, the truly keen enthusiasts are cancelling orders how many of just the regular interested guys are

Gotta go down as one of the biggest flops of car launches of all time
