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...

This car is Great It quick, Awesome
looking and handles like a dream
Power is good for the every day driver
or the track. The only complaint is
that the motor is a bit lowed you can
hear the valve train win driving
All though the exhaust helps to cover
it up. Grat car and a lot less than a
vette or mustang cobra.
The stilling of the car looks like a
high-end vehicle. The motor has the
power of a v8 and the handling of a
Love the Car's Performance, its a blast
to drive, and it gets lots of looks...
BUT...the door sills are high which
makes it difficult to use drive through
banking services, it is somewhat
difficult to get in and out of the car,
and replacement tires for this model
are very expensive. FYI...You do not
rotate the tires front to rear on the
touring model...the tires are
directional tires and the front and
back tires are different sizes. The
dealers do not inform you of this...I
just happened to ask while I was
closing the deal. However, these
factors did not prevent me from
purchasing the Z.
Add digital compass, front glove box,
driver seat memory, door strips to
prevent dings, sunroof option, power
door & window lights. Lower door sills.
Move cupholders forward. Eliminate back
hatch glare,improve visibility.
2003 Nissan 350Z Performance 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
Great car, especially for the money.
This car is a total blast to drive.
Prior to buying the car, I had been
worried about the limited rear
visibility -- as it turns out, this
has not been a problem, because the
side mirrors are positioned to make up
for the poor visibility through the
rear hatch. My only issue with this
car is the poor sound from the Clarion
factory standard sound system.
Performance and styling -- need I say
Improve the factory sound system or
provide an option for upgrading the
sound system without having to buy a
350Z Turning model.
This car is awesome. Gets tighter and
faster each time I drive it. I was
told the computer kicks up the engine
at 3k and 6k. It's true.
My decission to by this car was made
with one exception, comfort. I am
a "big guy" and I finally got to sit
in the car when the car was released
to the dealers. I fit perfectly.If I
had to nit-pick, I would only comment
on two things. One of the things is
because I'm upset about all the rain
we have been getting. Opening the
window when it's wet outside is not
how I want to wash the interior.Nissan

a runoff for the water to get it away
from the inside of the car.
Second, Nissan should design, even as
an option, an upgraded interior
package. Maybe a more crome or wood
detailing. Higher quality, more
substance, plastic detailing.
Currently the plastic has a
very "cheap" feel.
