2003 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
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
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.
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
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
Super smooth transmission and engine.
Great placement behind the wheel. Dash
moves with the steering colum for great
Drivers seat could use a pull out
bolster for us tall/long legged
drivers. Bose stereo could use
improvement as could the Bridgestone
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.
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.
More chrome inside. Also a glove box
upfront would be nice.
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.
I went to Clay Nissan to look at
Frontiers. The people that came with
me said I should check out a 350Z. So,
the dealer got the keys (for the 2003
Touring model of course) and I went for
a drive. I fell in love with it right
away. I then took a 2004 Maxima for a
spin, but it didn't compare. After
another spin in the Z I put my money on
the table and drove away with it. Um,
I kinda forgot about test driving the
The seats are increadibly comfortable.
They 6 speed manual transmission is so
smooth, it makes driving it fun (coming
from someone who spent the past 6 years
driving automatics.) And of course,
the looks of the car causes a lot of
rubbernecking on the part of the
A version with a monster V8 engine
would be sweet...
