Fun/sporty — I like everything about the Z. I bought a new one I liked it so much, actually this is my third one! Anyone who likes sport cars, especially 2 seat convertibles will absolutely love this car! You will not find the Z's styling, power and performance in any other car for this price. The Z is a class by itself.

The 2008 Nissan 350z Is Still One Of The Best Performance Buys On The Market. — A proper sports car for the everyman. If we had just one sentence to describe the Nissan 350Z, that'd be it. While there have always been plenty of unobtainable sports cars out there to drool over, the 350Z's relatively compact dimensions, rear-wheel drive, two seats, muscular engine and sharp handling came at a price that real people could actually afford.

Pros

Looks, drives, and feels amazing. Overall, one of the best sports cars out there.

Cons

Not the most practical vehicle, but come on, who really buys a 'Z' for practicality?

Amazing Performance For An Amazing Price. — For the money, hands down one of the best sports cars out there. Very versatile and fun to drive. Perfect for short road trips to the country side or trips to the beach. Very nice and powerful with a small hint of sensibility.

Limited Edition Nismo — This is my 2nd 350Z. When I saw it on the show room floor I had to get it. The NISMO style looks awesome. The car is quick but most notable over 40 mph. The car handles great on dry pavement. The road noise was loud until I installed dynamat which lowered it by 30 dcb.

A Rush To Drive! — This is a Collateral Vehicle that was seized. I had no idea of what we were getting our hands on when we arrived. Can I say I was very happy to find this vehicle in great shape and ready to roll. On the mountain passes of Colorado, this thing wanted to run my friends Audi A6 Sport into the ground. You cannot imagine how fun this car is until your drive it.

Pros

This car does almost everything well.  It is quick handling, powerful, and very easy to drive.  It is economical and amazingly practical for such a small car.

Cons

Interior noise is noticeable, even at moderate speeds.  The rear brakes are prone to fade under repeated hard (i.e. track) use, but are fine for normal driving.

Fun, Fun, Fun! — This is my 3rd Z dating back to a 1979 280 ZX and a 1990 300 ZX. It is the natural evolution of its predecessors, but unique in its own way too. It retains fabulous Nissan reliability and maintainability with even fewer faults and foibles than the older models. It is one of the most fun cars to hop into and drive off to the beach--or the supermarket. It is as at home on the highway as it is on track day. The addition of a high-quality aftermarket sound system corrected the only significant shortcoming I noticed on buying it. That also helps to offset the noticeable road noise. This car was a huge bargain! I do not know of another car with a better grin for the buck value than the 350Z--except maybe the 370Z!

I Enjoy It. Its Fun — its quick, and nimble. car gets up and goes, doesnt like to be driven lightly. its a fun car to drive indeed, just sucks for everyday driving very bumpy. and its about 60 bucks a week to fill up, and 40 bucks every 3k miles for gas. the catch is the tires cost about 650 a piece to replace.

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

Smokin Looks But Not Speed — nice styling amazing handling just slightly low on power. i have had no issues with it and has definately taken its share of my abuse. everything works smoothly and could not ask for much more. I feel that forced induction would place this car into beast status and be what the experience should have been directly from the factory
