Yes. Yours will definitely fall into the VINs that are affected.

You should get a replacement FOC.  How long are you in the country?  You might be able to get it done here before you head back.

Same failure on my 2011 370Z. Nissan wanted to charge me £1364 for parts and labour, BUT I managed to persuade them to provide a new unit for free. How?

 

In the UK, the Sale of Goods Act extends up to 6 years from date of purchase. This means that, if you can prove that the cause of a malfunction is down to a manufacturing or design defect, you are entitled to have the fault made good, with AT LEAST a contribution from the vendor. In the case of car faults, you should also be able to demonstrate that your vehicle has been properly maintained and the cause is not down to misuse. In this case: 

 

* my car had been serviced on the dot by Nissan dealers 

* there is a proven history of defects with the steering lock mechanism (thanks to all that have posted on here - this evidence was critical!)

 

I reported the above to Nissan UK HQ and hey presto! a 100% contribution from them on the price of the duff unit.

 

Hope this helps...
