Great Design — I like the performance and handling of this car. And I love all of the available modifications that are for the 350z. It's fast twin turbo installation and even more modifications done to mine to create the ultimate driving experience.

Pros

It is very fast and handles really well.

Cons

It is very low to the ground which means that I scrape curbs quite often.

One Of The Best Overall Cars I Have Driven. — I just really liked how it drove and not to mention the look of it. Mine is very fun to drive given that it is a manual. I enjoy the car overall and haven't had very many problems with it with the exception of the obvious upkeep and maintenance of any car.

Pros

Reliability, Engine performance, braking and steering and stylish appearance.

Cons

The stiff suspension and firm handling and nearly 50/50 weight distribution is impressive, however does require a bit of an adjustment from my earlier model. However, on long drives, there is plenty of room and performs like a touring vehicle should.

A Truly Dependable, Stylish And Timeless Sports Car. — As a previous owner of a 300zx, I am impressed with the engineering upgrades to this model. From the heated seats to the engine performance and specs, it truly deserves to be on the Motor Trends best 10 cars list.

Great Value For A Mid Range Sports Car. — Bought it in 2010 w 13,000 miles, for $15,900. Had been very well cared for. Have mainly driven in the warm Idaho months. Handles great, plenty of power. Bose sound is a plus. Has been very reliable. Had problems with cracked SSR GT3 wheels, probably due to Bridgestone/Fireston;'e Potenza run flat tires. Can not tell if deflated. In dry idaho weather, bead seal can break and leak. Had to put pressure caps on to tell if inflated. Replacing with Michelins, and replacing wheels.

I Like The Way It Runs And Handles But Rice Burners Arent Really My Thing — i like that its fast and easy to handle. headlights look great at night and the over sound of the car is decent (for a rice burner) also the touch screen radio is awesome and brand new with a lot of attachments you can do with it.

Great Second Car! — This vehicle is definitely a fun car to drive. It handles well and because it doesn't have the rev sync. that the new 370z's have, it feels more like real driving as opposed to driving with "training wheels". A must have for any Nissan sports car enthusiast!

Fun Fun Fun — One of the best looking cars out there period!!! Vq35 and 6m/t is a no brainer!!! one thing I would warm people about it this car is not as forgiving to an inexperienced driver. Not a year round car in the area of the county. stil miss this car! I'd buy another one if I could (kids) so hence why I have a 12 Altima coupe 3.5 SR 6mt

Fun, Fast And Flirty — Very comfortable to Drive. Even if you don't prefer stick shift it is easy to drive. Definetly a Head Turner and with 6cyl Fast but not to bad for gas mileage. Would recommend for the Weekend Getaways to the Bay or Tahoe!

My 350z — Great over all car. Great handling, low maintainance cost, milage is fine for a sports car. The 350z is a great bang for bucks and I can recomend this car to anyone. Got the car to flip it a few years ago and now I wont sell it ever. :)
