Cream Puff — This is the seventh Z I've owned. They are awesome little cars!!!! They always make people turn their heads and look. This is the classicist one I've ever owed. Awesome handling in the curves and great top end. Overall great little sports car.

Pros

Custom suspension car handles and corners extremely well also have oversized custom wheels and tires. Delivering 345 h.p. to rear wheels. Great acceleration and roll on power

Cons

Gas mileage is only about 17.5 MPG. But who really cares

Fun To Drive, Suspension, Exhaust Note And Wheels Turn Heads — This is my second Z car.Currently still have my 1988 300zx which is for sale on this website. I absolutely love the performance, and rolling with the top down. World class roadster, without the expensive maintenance issue of other roadsters.Great to have a car to just jump into and take off especially on a nice warm sunny day. No destination required.

Pros

The absolute best sports car for the money. You can't find this package of power, handling, style, and comfort any cheaper!

Cons

Only a 2-seater.

I Am In Love — This is a phenomenal looking car that is much more comfortable than one would think. Of course it handles amazingly and has plenty of power, but it has been my daily driver for the past 6 years and I have never regretted that for a minute. Anyone who has ever driven one will tell you that it handles like a scalpel. I would take a Z car over any other Japanese sports car in it's class.

Great storage fir tiny car

Cons

Nissan had a Major paint issue on All 350Z's, if u look at interior paint wrong you had a ding or a scratch, I just had all my interior paint redone.  Nissan is NOT reimbursing me.  Look at any 350 and u will see what I mean.  It makes a spotless car look abused(when it isn't

Fun, Fun, Fun — Interior paint even on arm rests, already had both of those replaced too due to same scratching issues. I am a neat freak and it was driving me all the time. Car also gets lots of attention, if I wasn't very happily married I could puck someone up each day!!!!!! Just joking...

Pros

Love the fact it has balls. Car is very fast indeed. Small in size, great in traffic & excellent in the summer coming back from the shore. Car grips amazingly.

Cons

Trunk is tiny- no space for air even. (lol) Also, tire sizes differ from front & rear. That is very inconvenient.

Buying This Car Was A Great Choice! — I love the rush I get every time I drive this car. I have never lost a street race because this car has amazing stability, performance & balance. I can honestly say I've never broken down with this car in the 4 years I've owned it. I would definitely recommend buying a Z if you had the money for it. They are dependable cars but I'd recommend you buy it as a secondary car just for summer. It's RWD so it's terrible in the winter.

Love The 350z — Beautiful car and drives like a dream. The way this car handles when driving down the road is amazing. I'm thankful for the extra speedometer on the dash that makes it easy to view your speed.. It is extremely helpful! :)

Pros

Very fast.  You can out run the cops if you need to.  Great for your mid life crisis.  If you still have hair it make a great hair dryer with the top down.

Cons

If your tall, you might not be very comfortable driving this car.

Very Fun, Very Fast, A Real Head Turner — I like everything about this car. I hard not to drive it like a sports car because it is so responsive. If your in a hurry, don't worry, you don't have to slow down for turns. It is rear wheel drive so leave it in the garage if there is snow on the streets.

Cheap Fast Gt That Can Surprise You — Build Quality: Haven't had it long enough, no repairs so far Car Comparisons: I was considering also Chevy Corvette C5 but 350z won because it was more "everyday" car then Vette, of course the lack of rear seats could be an issue and the trunk space , while it's not super small, the Z beam running across it makes it difficult to carry big items.

Defiantly A Must Drive. — Performance- With 387-306 HP (depending on how year and trim) and weighing around 3344 Lbs, I think this car has more than enough power for all but the most demanding car enthusiasts. Build Quality- The 350Z seems to be built quite well, my family has everything from a Ford Mustang, to several Subaru's, to a Lexus RX and I think the 350Z is built as well as any of them, I have driven many other small sports cars and this, again, feels like it is built as well as any I have driven. Appearance- This will always come down to personal taste. I think it could be styled a little more aggressively in the front but it looks very balanced. Cost Of Ownership- Using a variant of the corporate Nissan/Infiniti 3.5 V6, 350Zs are mechanically very reliable. mine has had a few small suspension issues but I do not think those are the factories fault considering I know the car had been through a interesting life before I bought it. Fun Factor- Defiantly the most "FUN" car I have Personally owned. I was going around test driving a bunch of sports cars, trying to decide what kind I would buy over the summer, I had not thought much about 350Zs, i do not know why but I had just never liked them much. I saw a convertible 350Z on a local lot and figured id take it for a spin. that changed everything, after that I was done deciding what make I wanted, it was finding the right 350Z.... I found a 2006 with only 28,000 miles and a surprisingly good automatic transmission, although the would have preferred a 6spd manual, there are not many in good shape in the area so I made a trade off, condition and miles over a little more fun. I have not once regretted buying it. every time I drive it I just have a hard time not smiling......
