The standard of a real sports car
Pros: It looks right, feels right and drives right.
Cons: Removing front wheel to replace expensive headlight bulbs!The 350Z has a great motor, a great transmission, it corners flat without having a too stiff suspension. It's basically more of a refined and agile driver's car than a Mustang, Camaro or Challenger, for way less money than a Porsche or Corvette. It will totally smoke all of the ugly mini station wagon GTIs, Mazda Speeds, WRXs and such. It's really the best sports car left for the money. The basic model is all you need. I paid only $26500 for mine.
Pros: ComfortThis is an excellent car; good speed ; good on gas
Pros: Sun roof
Cons: Back seatI really enjoy this car lots of room
THE MOST AMAZING CAR!
Cons: headlightsI love this car to death! It's so nice and I'm always comfortable. But of course leather seats burn up in the summer! You have to take good care of this car because it deserves it. If you take good care of it, it will take GREAT care of you!
Pros: Power and acceleration.
Cons: Power inlet inside cabin.This is the most enjoyable car that I have ever owned. I have received compliments from people that I know as well as strangers from the first day I drove it off the Nissan lot in 2003 to this day. It is very fun to drive with the 297 hp on tap (cold air induction added - plus 10hp) will get you out and around slower highway traffic in a snap and also handles quite well on twisty roads and the race track. The 350z is a real pleasure to drive. The downside: like any 2-seat sports car, there is limited room inside. The one thing I wish it did not have would be the brace tower in the rear hatch which cuts into your cargo capacity, especially with lager items. But for smaller items such as groceries it works fine. Second, the power outlet is in the middle between the two seats, which makes it strange to plug a radar detector into. I suggest a wireless detector instead. Car has been pretty much bullet-proof in the 7 years that I have had it with no problems at all with engine, transmission (6 sp manual). Although I have had to replace three window motors, a seat problem and a water leaking problem all under warranty. If I were to do it again, I would! It is a great car that not only will fight (and win) against most anything from Detroit (Mustang, Camaro, etc.) but also against cars from Europe like a Cayman S and a S4. Drive one for yourself and decide. I'm sure you'll be happy.
Pros: Too many to list.
Cons: What's not to like?My LS has all the upgrades and is a super value. I enjoy it's 'toys' & performance plus 18-20 mpg in burb driving & 25+ on the highway. (I can get 28+ if I don't push it..)
One of the best vehicles
Pros: there are several
Cons: the way it ridesThe vehicle has been garage kept. It has given me excellent service at very little cost.
