2003 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

With a little over 3k miles, my biggest problemhas been keeping the car clean. It gets 400 miles between refills using ~17.5 gallons. It drives a great on the freeways as the canyons. The gearing on the 6spd MT is good and I never lug in any gear or wind out in any gear. Full use of engine and tranny from 1k - 6k rpm. A little bouncy on the 5 freeway where the concrete is choppy for all cars, I expect to improve the cornering with better shocks & sway bars after a few years. I look forward to changing the brakes because they get dirty quickly and tires because they have short tread life designation.


Best Features

Acceleration, Stopping and going through turns without slowing down. Good Shifting feel. Lots of admiring looks from other drivers.


Worst Features

Better use of Storage space. Larger access to Door panel storage. Maybe storage between back storage cabinets that opens over console.

2003 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Traded 1982 280ZX for the new 350Z. Traction control "ON" is a must for normal driving. First year model does have some issues, but Nissan is doing their best to resolve. I am very happy with the response of the 287ph and the 6 Speed is very smooth. Its hard not to punch it every time you get a chance. Handling and performance are outstanding for a $30K true sports car.


Best Features

The exterior and interior design is to my liking. After 10 months I'm still getting stares and finger pointing(in a good sense). It fun to drive and take care of, I plan to keep this one another 20 years, the quality appears to be here for her to last that long. the pitlizard


Worst Features

Better tires, consistency in handling issue from dealer to dealer, and give all the pre-order customer a $1000 rebate for show-casing this beatiful car.

2003 Nissan 350Z Touring 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

After owning a Datsun 240 & 260Z back in the early 70's, I was pleased to see the 350Z arrive. The car is everything you can ask for in the price range. It's fun to drive, turns heads everywhere you go and asks to be driven hard. I have had zero complaints and look forward to many, many miles of enjoyable driving.


Best Features

Super smooth transmission and engine. Great placement behind the wheel. Dash moves with the steering colum for great vision.


Worst Features

Drivers seat could use a pull out bolster for us tall/long legged drivers. Bose stereo could use improvement as could the Bridgestone tires

2003 Nissan 350Z Touring 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This vehicle is great. I looked at the G35 Coupe / Audi TT / Porsche. For the money the 350Z was the best buy hands down. Although you have to pay sticker for this car, it is a great buy. It screams GO GO GO. Step on the gas and you fly. This is by far the best sports car I have owned.


Best Features

Although the 6 speed takes time getting used to it is great. After you get used to the close short throw shifter it's great. If you want to get noticed then get a bright color like Daytona or LeMans. and stare. The Boise 240 watt stero is great.


Worst Features

More chrome inside. Also a glove box upfront would be nice.

Review

The 350Z is truly a great sports car that is extremely fun to drive. Many are quite surprised to see how wide the torque powerband is. The ride comfort is astounding and I love everything about this car.
