I've always loved the Z and this one is no exception. The Z is a blast to drive, whether it be through a twisty road, the empty highway, or the pacific coast highway. The shifter is smooth an the throws are quick. Plenty of torque so you never feel short on power an the sound of the engine revving up is amazing. Handling is excellent. Body roll is almost non-existent. Seats hold you in tight as you take the corners. Brakes react quickly and interior design is driver oriented. Overall its just a great car.
Blindspots! Trying to merge over into another lane becomes a near death experience. It's easily fixed with just moving the mirrors further out. View out the back is horrible. Ride can be uncomfortable on anything but perfect road. Weight! Car feels like a pig sometimes. Storage space for maps
This is a very fun to car to drive! One of the best values out there. The only things that can beat it are the STi and mitsubishi evo, but then you have to deal with thier spoilers and tough ride quality. The car is very quick and makes a beautiful noise while your on the throttle inside and out. Handling is excellent and acceleration is quick right from the dealer. I paid 22,000 grand for mine used, 0-60 in 5.4, brembo brakes, great exhaust note, great looks and you got a deal of the year. Sure you can get a Mitsubishi evo or a Subaru STi for around the same price or a used one cheaper but then you deal with jarring suspension and huge spoilers and street racer looks. Z is a great deal.
Perfectly placed shifter, pedals, and sterring wheel and excellent sight lines. Its very easy to find the right driving posistion in about 10 seconds. The noise of the exhaust is one of the best I've heard. Handling and acceleration are superb. Great looks, Great acceleration and great suspension
No glove box to hold insurance info or other stuff. Harsh ride setup for track model, I feel like i can feel every pebble i run over. Bad visibility out rear view mirror and blind spots. Digital speedomoter on trip computer is inacurate with speeds above 60. Shows im doing 86 when dials read 70

is fun to drive. the interior and
exterior are nice. the car is
everything i thought it would be. the
track model is fast, quick, and good
In 1972 I purchased my first Z. It was
the 1970 240Z and a more cost efficient
sports car I have never seen.
As an avid autocrosser I was looking
for something reasonably priced.
I compaired the Z06 Corvette, the Mazda
RX8, and the 350Z. I was very
impressed with the handling of the Z
and at a price that was 16 grand less
than a Z06.
The Z's 3.5 liter V6 offers very good
On the track the Z says, Drive me hard.
It has very slight understeer. Exiting
a corner the Z becomes instantly
neutral. Inducing oversteer is very
This car is the embodiment of the
original 240Z, offering performance at
a reasonable price.
Easy to learn to push to it's limits.
Brembo breaks stop the care quickly and
have little to no fade.
Aggressive styling is a head turner.
Nissan has hinted that the 3.5 liter
power plant can easily produce more
than 300 horsepower. Do that and it
will be a Z06 killer on the autocross
