2004 Nissan 350Z Coupe Touring 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
Have only driven 3400 miles since purchase. car was purchased in north carolina and delivered to jay peak vermont . have made arrangeements with freedom nissan of burlington vermont for service just completed first service 3500 miles. they were very receptive even though i did not purchase the car through them they have notified me of two recalls and are in the process of completing them . fantastic service.
styling / handling once i get into some serious driving i am sure there will be other favorite features
road noise from the back section hatchback area added trunks mat thinking it would help improve no/luck, could improve the quality of the radio not necessary to have the boom box effect . the most important would be all wheel drive living at a ski area limits driving to 6 or 7 month per year
After 23K miles I have been very pleased with this car. yes the tires feathered at 5K miles, and the axles had the clicking problem. But for 25 Grand I dont know of where you can get more bang-for-the-buck fun. I have noticed the gas mileage has gotten better and better. now at 23 avg. The only real gripe I would list is that the base model comes with the least adjustable seats. On a long drive the side bolster tend to poke into the outside of my fat legs and make them a little numb. I have defintely considered trading in on an '06 Z. I think i will wait for the '07. Love the new wheels. Also considering a Vette or a porsche cayman
Motor, motor and the exhaust note too. The Price. I have had a great experience with Nissan service for the tire recall and the axle recall. Chris G. at Team in Marietta GA. Nice job! Other favs are car's design and look. That subtle race car whine from the transmission when you have your foot in
The transmission. I have heard Nissan is on their fourth or fifth revision on the transmission. Shifting is a little tricky and a bit slow compared to my 95 integraGSR 1st to 2nd has always been a bit tough I thought it would break in and free up after a while. After that 2nd gear is nice and long
Bought this car brand new and have loved every mile. Do not buy this car if you have a lead foot or if you don't like attention. It's FAST and only made for two people. Long trips get a little tiring but the mileage is great for a sports coupe with this much power. Easy to make this car really custom with bigger rims and tires and small style touches. Don't buy this car if you don't know how to drive, it's 100% a driver's car.
Getting 23mpg in a 287hp sports car. Getting nods from people with much more expensive cars when I paid 23k for mine.
Early years have tire issues, transmission whines on cold days, long trips hurt your back but it's a sports car, HEY NISSAN...PUT CRUISE CONTROL ON BASE MODEL. Passenger cupholder is prone to breaking. Very little leg room for tall folks.
