    My 350z — Great over all car. Great handling, low maintainance cost, milage is fine for a sports car. The 350z is a great bang for bucks and I can recomend this car to anyone. Got the car to flip it a few years ago and now I wont sell it ever. :)

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

    Pros: Look and power.

    Cons: Spare part price.

    Great Weekend Car And Nice Ride. — Only thing I did not like is that I had to use premium gas. Very reliable, the power and handling is great. Low maintenance cost. Little cargo capacity so do not plan on carrying a lot of stuff. Leather heated seats and good surround sound.

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

    Pros: Love this car.  Runs smooth and hugs the road well.  Never had a problem over the years that I have had it.

    Cons: Uses Premium Gas.

    Flawless Enjoyment — This fast with only 287HP? Really? Seriously, a fun car to drive. Not a dragster, but serious fun in the twisties. I enjoy it as much as, perhaps more than, my ST1300 motorcycle. Also very pleasant to drive long distances - turning 1000 mile trips tours a day drive. I've averaged 21.4 MPG over 70,000 miles, with 27.85 my highest tank. Last 1500 mile round trip to Yosemite averaged 25.65, with many miles on twisty side roads. Beyond normal oil & filter changes, the only maintenance has been to replace brake pads at 35,000 miles, and replace pads and rotors at 60,000 miles. The car had the common front end growl and I went through a few tires early on; but once I got off the OEM tires I've had no problems.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Pure distilled fun and excellent handling in twisties; 287HP at 27MPG and comfortable 1000+ mile days as it eats up the freeway.

    Cons: Honestly, I can't think of any negatives to this car.

    Fun Sporty And Beautiful Car — This is a very beautiful sports car, with only 29,282 actual miles. Excellent condition, lady driven to work and back home, and never been wrecked. This is the 350Z Enthusiast Edition, which is top of the line. It is equipped with automatic transmission, leather interior (no rips, or signs of wear), heated seaats, power driver and passenger seats, multi disc Bose stereo, good tires. The car's interior color is frost and the exterior color is Interlagos Fire Metalic, which is very rare and sought after color in this model and makes this car a real eye catcher

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very low miles

    Cons: Hard ride

    Not A Bad Daily Driver — Performance - More than enough for road use.... Build Quality - Not too shabby but the interior plastic could use a little upgrading Appearance - Nice, porsche inspired lines, but still need aftermarket parts for that bang Cost of Ownership - Fuel consumption isn't too bad, but then again it's not a Toyota Corolla Fun Factor - For road use, yes it's fun. If you like speed, you will have to put on at least a single turbo for any kind of adrenalin rush

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I only drive this because my other car hasn't sold. Once both cars are sold, I'm moving on to a Corvette or S2000

    Cons: Need to spend some mullah for looks

    Raw — Drives great, wonderful quality. Awesome sleek exterior with a classy/sporty white frost insterior. Fast and handles amazingly. An idiot-magnet on the road, almost everyone tries to race me or show off a car thats faster. I actually have fun driving now.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sporty, sexy, fast.

    Cons: Attracts lame ricerboys on the street.

    My Bottom Line Is Get One, We Need More Cars Like This And You Can Tune Them To The Max... — This car is the perfect car if you want to get your feet wet in the sports car world. It's not packing 500whp but it packs a decent punch, and at an affordable price. The Performance is there when you need it and trust me you can make these cars into out standing track cars with the right changes and a good tuner. That being said it can just as easily be used for a daily driver - that's what "belle's" use is and i couldn't pick a more enjoyable car anywhere near the price point of a 350z!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power when you want it but tame enough for a daily driver.

    Cons: Older models have some flaws - go 2006 or newer if you can! Or that it seems a number of old ladies want a fast car and the Z is it...

    Solid Brooo — Performance - Quck acceleration, brakes are good with little fade, handling is excellent but can do with better tires - currently using Yokohama Avids. Needs an even stickier tire. Build quality - Not happy with interior materials Appearance - sexy Cost of ownership - its a japanese car. Not bad. Fun factor - fun to drive. Wish it was lighter

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

    Pros: Fun in the twisties

    Cons: Interior materials not as nice as german products

    350z — Performance of this car is pretty good. has a great torquey motor, but slightly lacks a little in the power area. Build quality is great, the car feels very good, very stable, just a few rattles here and there. The looks of it bone stock are eh, but nismo as well as many other companies can make it look much more aggressive. the car is so much fun to drive and definitely gets a bunch of looks. Just add some parts, tune it and its good to go. Also, the car is verrrry heavy so strip as much as possible! haha

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

    Pros: looks great, fun to drive, sounds amazing

    Cons: heavy heavy heavy! lacks a little bit of power also.
