Pros: Bose stereo and convertible top
Cons: nothingNo matter how bad your day has been, just jump in this car and cruise all you pain away! Nothing but love for this car!!
Me and my 350Z
Pros: Its a convertible
Cons: To unlock the trunk the car cant be running.This car has it all. I have had a benz and a bmw, also a caddy. Nothing comes close to my nissan 350Z and for the money compared to those others, nissan beats them hands down. If you dont have a nissan 350z or 370Z them you got jacked!
Pros: COMFORT OF THE COCKPIT
Cons: PAINT JOB
Advice: Buy a 2005 or aboveVery difficult to change the oils yourself. Nissan does not make it easy. Nissan could have used a hardier paint and chips way too easily. Tires do not wear evenly and it is a painful process to get a new sound system installed. Wish Nissan would have used more quality materials inside the cockpi. Other then these qualms, I LOVE my 350Z!! It is a pleasure to drive every day and it purrs like a kitten.
Pros: the looks
Cons: Only has 2 seats!!
Advice: Car is great, fast, fun, and extremley awesome looking but if you dont like 2 seaters not the car for you.AWESOME
Pros: the sound of the engine
Cons: cup holder placement is wierd
Advice: get the added side and curtain airbags for $620.00 It saved my wife from head injuryi had 2006 touring model for pass 7 monthes till it was totaled. I was hit from the rear by a toyota cambry estimated at 55mph while my wife and I were sitting at a stop sign. We were able to walk away from the accident. It is well worth it to have the side and curtain air bags. My wife actually set off the side and curtain air backs when she left the imprint of her left shoulder in the door panel. The car certainly has a five star crash rating. On the highway with added K&N cold air induction I was able to get 33 mpg. In the city I just scooted from light to light. it is a good investment to buy a good radar detector with this car. It certainly draws alot of attention especially from police. We had a six speed manual and my wife always had a smile on her face when she pulled up in the drive way and myself I was always ready to take a trip to the store for her !! The car is pure fun. We took it to the N.C. mountains and the car held the curves with awesome ease. Accerleration is great and the new 2007 is even a bit quicker. We are looking to buy another when the 2008 shows its face.
Pros: Convertible Top is simple and so quick.
Cons: When the top is up you do have blind spots, drive safely.
Advice: Make sure you are aware of how small and sporty this car truly is.I've installed new exhaust for a deeper more throaty sound.Also, have put Eibach Springs Pro Kit which settled the car 1' in front and 1.5' in rear.I have Bridgestone Pole Position S03's 245/35/19 on front and 285/30/19 on rear.I have 3 piece Kaotic rims and a Bullit Grill on front.This car is not for everyone, make sure you are in the market for a true sports car because this rides,handles,feels,looks and runs as a sports car all the way. I have really had a blast with it and look forward to adding more goodies in the future. No complaints and maintainence on this car is minimal.
Cons: Limited seat options
Advice: Want the cheapest true sports car? This is it!It's got everything you would expect in a sports car!
