Nissan lost my business

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Nissan 350Z Track 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

Build quality is the worst I've ever seen. 2,000 dollars in rotor work before the car had 18,000 miles on it. Window stuck, trans was a mess and the list goes on. New tires on the front at 8,000, 12,000 and 16,000 miles. The best deal I ever made was selling it. I'll never buy a Nissan again nor will any of the 47 family members who drive by Nissan. HUGE disappointment...




Great car

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan 350Z Track 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

From the day I drove off the car lot I have never had such a great driving experience as I have had with my 350Z. I have driven many performance cars and the 350Z is the best.




Endless warranty work

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Nissan 350Z Track 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

I have had over half a dozen warranty jobs done on this car in its short lifespan. This includes a complete transmission that was grinding gears. The interior is full of cheep plastic. Insurance rates are rediculous for the car as well. I average 15.2 mpg.




Handles like a gokart

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan 350Z Track 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

I love the car. I do not like the fact the VDC does not fully turn off when the button is in the "Off" setting.




Sexy car

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan 350Z Track 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

Very nice winding out the gears after hitting 2nd gear. Hugs road nicely on turns. I disagree with the "take" that it is so hard to see out back, on the hard tops anyway. Shifts very quickly. Jumps from 65 to 120mph.




My sleek machine

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Nissan 350Z Track 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

I absolutely love my Z! Besides being fun to drive, it is one of the finest cars on the road today. A pleasant surprise that contradicted my original opinion was how much the back would hold in luggage, groceries - stuff in general. I drive it 5 minutes to work, but I have also taken it on a couple of long trips and it handles great. I also love the great use of space. Whether I am driving to work, around the city of Houston, or on a trip, it is a great car to have.
