2003 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
the car has had countless trips to the dealer for tranny, clutch, suspension, window motors,and audio....all of it has been replaced once or more times! There is countless tsb's on the vehicle as well, i suggest if you get a z get an 06 because i heard that they have improved most of the problems.
I love the power and the multipurpose gauge cluster
Stronger tranny (actually whole drive train) and better quality parts to make this car more reliable
This is one tight car. From shifting to cornering the 350Z has a dynamic racing feel. Your wish is it's command. This is a true sports cars sports car. Highway cruising speeds do not do this car justice. It is extremely smooth and deceiving on the open road and equally capable on curved surfaces. The always illuminated gauges are there to inform you about tire pressure, mpg, temp, speed, rpm max, dte, and more. The practicality of the 350Z is not so much. After all this is a true sports car. It has moderate storage compartments behind the seats and the stabilizing bar in the rear hatch area really reduces your cargo space so pack lite. Bottom line:This is a drivers car that won't dissapoint!
gauges, steering wheel, overall appearance, heated seats, leather, auto dim mirror w/garage opener, bose sound system, handling, response.
The only request I would make has to do with the seats. They are comfortable relatively speaking. There is plenty of leg room and they are conforming to your body. However it would be more comfortable if there were more options on seat adjustments.
I had this car for 3-1/2 years - just sold it today. Loved it for the first two years, but the following bothered me: 1. airbag light kept malfunctioning. 2. front tire problems, which the dealership was supposed to inform me of, but didn't. 3. tires kept losing pressure for no apparent reason (separate from #2). 4. fuel line/filter recall. 5. No Visibility to sides and back of vehicle.
I loved the performance - tight maneuverability and breaking. This was my first car with a GPS system and I used it often. The Z has great lines.
Re-design the side view mirrors with softer lines/no right "edges." Move the hazard light button - easy to accidently turn on. Take the "creases" out of the hood - they make the car appear too much like a mitsubishi. Raise the front bumper an inch or two - tend to scrape in dipped driveways.

Fun car to drive! I love my Z. I had the last 300 before it was discontinued and this by far is a superior automobile. Great off the line you can only appreciate this car in the manual instead of the automatic. Takes curves at high speeds like a cat holding on to a tree.
