The 350z — the Z was a a great car made by Japan, it can be made into a great track car if wanted, or can be a good daily driver. The car is super fun to drive, it drives super straight couldnt be happier with the car.

It´s Good! — All this car needs more, is little more power and less weight. Well there is (VQ35DE) 3.5 liter engine with good torque. Brembo brakes: good touch and powerful. Car is nice and easy to drive. I realy can recommed this car! It look nice and there is realy little need repairs.

Blood Rush — It's hard not to love this car. It's hard not to love this car. It's fast and nimble and and a snug fit. It becomes part of your body. It handles like point and shoot, so that's what you do, point and shoot.

My Randevou With 350z — Hmm... 350z is replacing 300z The Japanese called Z-to is mean the Z. The car is very tail happy and lively. That why is the first choise for all the drifter over japan. A lot of the big manufacture over Japan tune this car. Ex: Wald, Faboulus, Nismo, Ken's style, Tommy Kaira, Feels etc. It certainly wrote his name over japanese car history. I got the beautiful lee mans sunset color with topless. I had the previllage to modifed mine. I put a nice famous wheels volk racing Te37, put a nice ken's style body kit with tommy kaira internal. It performed perfectly, If money is not an option for me. I will keep it this car for the centimental valued. But, as all the car maniac knows the new Nissan GTR is coming with the code name Godzilla. I am waiting patiently for the manual tranny.... because I don't belived with paddle shifter........ I didn't pay a lot of money for the computer to tell me what to do.... Especially shifting....:P

Great Car — Great car...expensive to maintain....needs to be like the RX8..needs mores seating...great sounds system...so much to add to the car. not too bad on gas either...great for the autobahn. lots of leg room but the bar in the back takes alot of space for trunk room

The power and chassis

Cons

Great Performance Considering Low Price, No Execcive Cost Of Ownership Exept For Gas — Performance: Great acceleration but lags power from 3000 to 5000 revolutions mostly on 3rd gear. The Braking is terribly poor since it has the same braking system of a Nissan Tiida. The handling is pure grip even without the ASR system. Build Quality: The car is built to last and take serious driver abuse but all the parts which arent mecanically related have poor built quality. Appearance: The interior has a great driving position and all the information u need on gages well positioned but it lacks any storing space and is practically plastic built. The exterior looks great except for the 17" rims. Cost of ownership: Gas mileage is very poor and u need to fill it up every 3 days max if its ure daily car. The maintenance is actually cheap and the fact that it doesnt break makes it even better. Fun Factor: This car is the most fun ive ever driven. It has loads of power and it grips like crazy at the same time allowing u to slide it around corners whenever u decide to.

Average interior quality

Best Peformance Value For The Money, Particularly In It's Price Range. — PERFORMANCE - I have lightly modded my 2004.5 350Z 6spd. I have put in a lightened crank pulley, iso-thermal plenum spacer, cold-air intake, NISMO exhaust, Koni fully adjustable shocks, TEIN H.Tech springs. A true 2-door, 2-seat sports coupe with a manual 6spd transmission. Handles like it's "on rails", excellent brakes, easy shift gates(albeit slightly notchy), best acceleration in it's class, driver-oriented cockpit,...VERY fun to drive. BUILD QUALITY- I have had ZERO repairs in the 7 years I have owned the car. No squeaks or rattles as of yet. Some say the interior materials are lacking standards or Audi, BMW, and Lexus which I would agree with, but they are average. APPEARANCE - personally I love the body-style inside and out...obviously storage is lacking, but honestly if you care about storage in this car, you shouldn't be getting a 2 seater sports car. COST OF OWNERSHIP - Average 23mpg with normal city/hwy driving. I've done all routine maintenance and have had no problems thus far. FUN FACTOR - Drive one to see, very fun. This car really shines with a manual transmission...they should've never made an automatic for this car, so sad.

If You Can Afford To Have A 2 Seater, It's The Best Value For Money And Beats A Porsche Boxster — Performance - Very silky power delivery and best value for money car in terms of power Build Quality - Not as great as say a BMW or Audi, but solid build and decent quality interior Appearance - A real head-turner, great looks with conservative yet 'loud' styling Fuel Costs - Quite thirsty with a 3.5 V6, but so worth it for the noise and acceleration

ride quality

350z — This car absolutely shoots off of the line. It doesnt just turn head, it makes people stare when you drive past them. It is so much fun to whip around corners and know that your car grips the road so well. The only time i've had a little bit of slide is when i hit the throttle hard when im going around the corner. The ride is a little bumpier than my lexus, but it also helps you to feel the road more, and be connected. This is definitely a driver's car!
