Pros

This car has great handling and a great look!  Normally with a sports car I want a manual transmission but with it being a Roadster I enjoy just being able to cruise around!

Cons

There is no back seat and not a very big trunk, but that is to be expected with a little sports car like this!

Great Car And Fun To Drive — The 305z Roadster is a fun weekend car and daily driver in the Summer! I have never owned a car that makes me want to drive all the time like it does. The handling on the Z cars never disappoints!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Fairladyz — You can enjoy the speed, or go around curves. I live in east TN, so there are plenty of curves. Like The Tail of the Dragon is my best ride to drive. Maintenance is easy, you can do it yourself, or take it to the shop. And you don't have to spend like thousand $$$ for it like BMW or Mercedes etc....

Awesome Handling — I love the handling, the engine is easy to maintain unlike others sports cars it does not brake down, good on gas, no cargo or back seats, If u want a porche try the Z 350 first better quality for your money

inexperienced driving ruining reputation

350z — an awesome car for those that can respect a fast car. But not for those who are just learnign to drive a sports car. Will bite back when driven improperly. Gas mileage is good for a car of this type. suspension is pretty stiff for daily driving

A Car That Doesnt Get Old Driving, Ya Just Want To Keep Coming Back For More. — this is truely an amazing car. as soon as you climb into it, you have this sensation knowing you are in a true sports car. the sleek interior allows for complete fuctionallity for the driver. plenty of foot room, for even the biggest of passengers. the sheer power of the engine is well rounded, just to tap on the gas is enough to feel the car come to life. with adding a cold air intake it just goads to drive harder over 4000 rpms. its not hard to bring this car into to triple digits speeds without hardly realizing it. The Suspension is truely responsive stock. no doubt you can attack any corner with having minimal body roll. it may not be the fastest down the straight away but when it comes to cornering, this car will have them beat. styling for this car is one to truely stand out. no joke to get heads turning as i drive along in my Z. the aerodynamics of this car very much so take away that wind pushing you along the road, you actually feel how you are cutting through the air, a sheer sense you own the road. as for gas mileage what can you expect from a sports car. im certainly happy with what i get. i run premium quality gasoline through this car only. in town i seem to average 14-16 mpg and 24 once out on the open road. not bad for stock standards. im sure with a few minor tweeks and addons i would be able to inprove this. now im no mechanic bu i certainly know my way around an engine bay, but compared to many newer cars where they have just as much electronics running the engine as they do mechanics. this one is certainly much easier to work around. engine is quite compact and easy to see whats going on. this car is fun to drive. very comfortable as a daily driver, yet sporty enough to feel like you are in control of the road. if you ever get a chance, take a test drive, see what you are missing. even if you get a chance to just cruise along in one. definately one car to check out.

350z — It's actually my dad's car but anyways... The car is abosolutely fantastic on acceleration as a 6 speed, you really get a good drive out of this car. The car is topped out from the dealership so it has all the performance body parts. It sold for about $45k which is decently priced. Absolutely love this car, took it on prom and it got countless looks all day/night.

Awesome — The car handles corners beautifully and has a lot of low end torque in second and third gears. I like that it only has two seats. I always gets comments no matter where I am. It has been the best car I've owned.

What isn't awesome about this car!  It's fast, glued to the road, eye-catching, affordable, and reliable!

Cons

The rear crossbar eats up a lot of otherwise usable room in the hatchback cargo area.

A Great Driving Machine — This car has been great to drive and very reliable. I have driven it for 5 years without any issues. It corners like no other car I've ever driven and accelerates very quickly. It's really a great valued sports car.

Pros

Great power to weight ratio, 287 HP made this car move fast!, comfortable and supportive front seats, controls/switchgear were straight forward and easy to use, decent trunk space for a sportscar due to the hatchback design, short throws on the 6 speed shifter.  Good brakes. Exhaust note from heaven!

Cons

Cheap interior plastics, 6 speed shifter bolted DIRECTLY onto transmission and made for firmer shift effort + shifter always vibrated, so-so radio, no sunroof, no traction or stability control on Base Model, stability strut in the rear gobbled up trunk space, standard halogen lights aren't bright enough + no fog lights either

For $25k ...a Good Performing Sportscar With Decent Amenities — While Nissan definitely cut a few corners to keep the 2005 350Z's price down, it was and is a beautiful car that goes fast and handles well. Power is there all throughout ..definitely not a slouch at low RPM's. Nice utility with hatchback, although the rear strut brace takes up a fair amount of space. Output from the standard halogens is sub-par though. Have to step up to the Enthusiast or Performance models to get Stability and Traction Control. Only real problem I had was a strange coolant leak that seemed come out of nowhere..other than that no real issues. Overall, a great performing and handling sportscar with the moves to match its exotic looks!
