    Lots Of Fun For A Few Bucks — Test drove one when they first came out in 2002 at Performance Nissan in Duarte. They only had the one car with a 6 speed manual transmission and I had to go with the salesperson in the car. That did not deter me to give it a decent test of its performance - acceleration, handling, noise, braking, etc. This car was a great deal then and still is now. You get a lot of performance for not much dough. Acceleration is quite brisk when you stomp on it. It just squats and goes. The further you put your right foot down the more you get squished into the seat. I only got it up to about 90 on the 210 in about a one mile jaunt but that was plenty to give me an idea of what was in hand. Braking was awesome as was the handling. This is no Buick that the sad 280Z was. This is the real deal. Then there is the drop dead looks of the car. It is a joy to drive. The only drawback is that there is not much room in back. But that is the price you pay for the stiffness structure that takes up most of the room behind the seats.

    Pros: Acceleration, Handling, Braking, Looks

    Cons: Not much space for stuff, only room for 2 - but who cares?

    My 350z — umm lets see, when i got it, it already had a leveling kit installed, 18 inch 5zigen rims and Zeon tires, and a carbon fiber spoiler. The stock acceleration was alright, nothing to brag about. The car handles amazingly well over 100 mph, and gets up to its 156 mph speed limiter pretty quick, one thing i removed with the chip lol. i havent needed any repairs, besides the performance mods ive been making, intake, supercharger, etc. The appearance is what i love, ive wanted a Z since i first saw the concept like 5 years ago, and i knew i was gonna pick one up when i could drive. I hate the stock rims, and look of them though lol it looks and sounds like a toy with an electric motor haha after you drop some money it itll sound less like a tuner, trust me. I love my 350, its mad fun to drive, and whip in... dont race it stock =)

    Pros: easy to work on, handles great, quick car before engine mods, durable, makes vTecs look stupid

    Cons: stock Z rims are ugly

    Love The Car — best sports car on the road. not the fastest but the best overall! it by far looks the best. the only back thing about the car is the nissan service at the dealership is terrible at almost any nissan you go to. the car is a blast to drive all the time.

    Pros: the whole car

    Cons: nissan service

    I'd Recomend This Car To Anyone Who Acctually Knows What Racing Is About...not Just Straight Lines!! — This car is wicked in every aspect, it's got great pick up exactly when you need it... It won't let you down!! Take this car to a track and have no worries around turns...Gas is ok but you don't drive a sports car to save gas!! Chicks always check this car out it's got great lines..

    Pros: This car handles AMAZING

    Cons: Could use an extra 30 hp!!

    Everybody Needs To Own One — great gas-mileage to performance ratio. leather is hard to breathe on the hot summer days even with 35% tint all around

    Pros: lots of torque, pedal down and down one gear...one word: seeya

    Cons: the suspension is wayyy to stiff for my liking, hard on the back.  however, great for kicking the ass out sideways

    Z-car — Fun to drive, looks nice, lots of buttons, good (not great) sound from the Bose system, low maintenance. Crappy gas mileage, but that's to be expected. Still gets looks, 5 years after release.

    Pros: Fast, good-looking

    Cons: Bad gas mileage, sucks in snow

    350z Greatness — The 350z is an amazing car for relatively cheap for what you get. The Z's performance from its 3.5L v6, front and rear independant suspension, front and back strut bars and wide sticky tires make it a force to be reckoned with. The looks and styling of the car is made for the sport car lover, with driver oriented gauge clusters and bucket seats, and tight steering. The Z is a car that if you treat it right it will do you the same, maintenance her well or it could be costly. And dont expect to get more than one friend with you, cause the 350's dont come in 2plus2's anymore. Overall this is an amazing car for what you spend. I would recommend this car to anybody with the means of keeping up on maintenance. Oh yeah and how fun is it when you can beat a V8 mustang with your V6 N/A, or how you destroyed a porsche boxter, and matched a 40000 plus cayman.....Priceless

    Pros: good power, great handling, good highway gas mileage. oh yeah and beating mustang GTs

    Cons: only two seats.

    350z Fan — Love everything except the transmission. It's too notchy. infact they're know for having tranny problems as far as the synchros grinding. Other than that she's a gem! the car stays pretty balanced through the turns even with a stock suspension set up. I'm sure that if people with aftermarket sways and coilovers can further attest to the quality of it's handling. Oh, and it's fast in the higher rpms.

    Pros: Fast, Fun, Affordable

    Cons: Transmission is crap.

    350z — Great car, solid, predictable, a bit heavy especially in the mountains (bigger tires a must), perfect for the track, tons of torque, could use a better clutch

    Rides Nice, Good Power, Great Brakes, Not As Nimble As One Might Think — Even after many adjustments and aftermarket suspension pieces the car still rides very nice, but when you want it be aggressive it can be. Just hop out of the car tweak some of the suspension and off to the curves you go. Power Band it pretty impressive for a 6 cylinder thats not really on the light side. It will surely surprise someone or another vehicle if they are not expecting it. Brakes are best I have ever felt with some minor aftermarket adjustments (Stainless steel lines, Different Pads, Stock size drilled and slotted rotors). Overall impressive car for the money and still able to pull over 25mpg if you drive nice. ;-)

    Pros: Good Power
    Great Brakes

    Cons: Heavy
    Trunk room...never heard of it.
