Can't Wait To Really Dirve It — The power band is smooth, constant, and impressive. I have not had a chance to "let 'er rip" but I can barely wait to do so. The build is very solid and I expect that to last for years to come. The Synchro Rev Match is amazing, to say the least. It works so perfectly it doesn't feel like I am in a different gear. I find I turn it off for normal driving because I am not used to it. I know once I start to reaally drive it I will leave it on. I initally did not think I would like the smaller car but I was wrong. I turn a lot of heads when I go down the street. One of the workers at a high-luxury condo I worked on thought I was a resident. It is a blast to drive. My girlfriend drove my car to a party and was asking if she could drive back. The only complaint is I noticed a very low speed grumble when turning the wheel when I left the dealership. Some road surfaces make more noise than others but that happens more in my current 300zx which I attribute to tires. Using the BlueTooth phone was also amazing. I called my mother from my car and I know she thought I was in my office. I bought the pearl white with the persimmon interior. There are three pockets for interior storage but all are pretty small. I wish more interior colors were available but the persimmon is striking. I seriously considered tbe black exterior but am extremely glad I went with white. The only change I see in the future is a new stereo. This one is not bad at all and creates a decent soundstage, but it could be better. I just hope the speakers do not have their own amps like my 93 did. I used a remote for volume and changing from cd to radio in my 93. The volume control is so well placed I find I do not use the steering wheel controls. This car has WOW factor all over it! I was realy planning on buying a Nismo 350 last year and am really, really glad I waited for this 370.

Fun Car — I love how this car handles, it's a fun car to drive. The draw back is having only two seats, so if it's your daily driver you're limited. But overall it's worth it. It packs a punch for an import.

awesome power, stunning good looks nothing looks like it on the road

Cons

fuel economy is a little of a challenge, storage is expected to be slim but some cars manage more room in the same package size

Great City Drive But Can Give You Excitement When You Need It — Never had the pleasure of taking my Z on the track, was focused on aesthetically modifying the vehicle but when being able to drive it on the commute in the morning you never really needed a cup of coffee just that exhaust noise and a good light right foot.

James Bond Car But No Space For His Gear! — I am looking to sell this car. I love it but it's just a fun weekend ride for me. Can't haul groceries or anything else that I need to do. But I have fun on the weekend! Very cool car.

Love The Speed And Handiling — The 2009-12 370Z is an excellent choice for someone who likes sports cars and knows how to drive them. It has the looks of the classic Datsun Z but with wider fenders and way more engine. The 6 speed manual is fun and easy to shift and goes well with the drive by wire throttle. The seats are roomy and comfy.

It's A Car For A Specific Interest Group: People Looking For A Fun Car Without Paying German Prices. — As with most professional reviews, I agree that the performance of the car is great, especially for the relative value. Plenty of punch coming on an on-ramp, and it handles the twists and turns the way you'd want from a rear wheel drive sports car. I haven't had too much experience with ownership cost yet, as I've only had it six months. Fuel mileage is livable. On the highway, which is mostly what I drive, it's okay. (high 20s) If you want to give it some juice though, it'll drain the tank pretty quickly. It's hard to strike a happy middle ground with this car. Visibility is pretty crappy when you're trying to back out of a parking spot, particularly when you're surrounded by SUVs. (Of course, the only way to see around SUVs is the be in another SUV.) However, with the mirrors you can see the dimensions of the car VERY easily, which makes parking easy, especially if you're parallel parking or backing in somewhere. The syncorev matching feature is awesome. As someone who didn't have a whole lot of experience driving stick before this car, it was a godsend until I ironed out the kinks. Of course this is not a car for someone who has a lot of practical needs. Cargo space is enough for about, I'd say, three bags of groceries laid sideways, and it is a two-seater. But hey, that's why my wife has a car. Road noise is also something people have complained about. It is a bit loud, I think due in part to the OE runflat tires, which I won't be using when it's time to replace them. Overall the noise is passable, to me. That's something you'd have to evaluate on your own.

Best Z Ever — Great Performance, but would be better with a twin-turbo mod. Look is just awesome, outside and inside. I really like the fact that you can unlock, start engine, and lock with your keys in your pocket. Very fun to drive when u remove traction control :P

Z Go Fast — If you don't like this car then there is something wrong with you. I have never lost a race to anyone with a V6 in this thing. This is probably one of the funnest cars you'll drive. Plus there is the drifting!!!!
