2005 Nissan 350Z Coupe Touring 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

In my research for sport performance cars back in 2004 the 350Z came out to be my best option over the Mazda RX-8, Mustang GT, Chrysler Crossfire and Honda S2000. The V6 engine with 274 lb- ft of torque and 287 Hp offers around 22 to 23 average mpg which is great for a sport car. Plenty of torque and interior space over Honda S2000. Interior plastic trim tolerances far better over the Mustang GT 2004 model. Interior design is comfortable for adult drivers up to 6 ft tall. The touring model with automatic transmission and traction control is excellent for everyday driving and leverages shifting fun vs. ease of driving.


Best Features

Heated, Powered-Leather seats Bose 6-disk in-dash changer with 10 inch subwoofer. 5 speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode. Side courtain and seat Airbags Climate Control Traction Control HID (High Intensity Discharge) Headlights 4-wheel Anti-lock braking system


Worst Features

Sunroof Option In-cabin microfilter for climate control 18 inch wheels for AT Transmission models

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


Review

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...


Best Features

Windshield wipers, I live in California where I never had to use them.


Worst Features

Suggested Improvements.... Hmmm, hire a Honda Engineer???

2005 Nissan 350Z Coupe Anniversary Edition 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Just purchased, so unable to give reliability review. Luv look, handles like slot racer, good power, interior i appeal sparse. Would like tach on top like other 3 gauges.


Best Features

Looks, power, handlng


Worst Features

Add tach to top gauges. Add more satin chrome finish to interior. Standard nice black license plate frames to compliment rest of vehicle. Had a hard time to match frame and bolts to fit front and back plates. Nice to have some kind of optional sunroof from Nissan not aftermarket.

2005 Nissan 350Z Coupe Performance 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I love it. It's a GREAT car, mixing the drivability and fun of American 'muscle' and the weight and handling of more hardcore sports cars. Finding a line somewhere between the portly Mustang GT and the more-purist Honda S2000, the 350Z is a classic example of excellent lines, medium displacement (3.5L V6=more torque than typical pocket rockets) and acceptable (3200lb) curb weight. No one who drives the Z will be disappointed with the performance so long as they keep in mind the price and 'goal' market. Particularly, the 350Z beats everything in close competition (3L+ V6), the new Eclipse (less hp, less mpg), the Crossfire (less hp, worse handling), and the R32 (looks, probably mpg, too).


Best Features

Multifunction display works well for speedometer feature, as center-mounted tach doesn't allow for ease of use on primary speedo. Short-throw, close- gated 6-sp is pure joy.


Worst Features

More hp, or better gearing. Should have included storage bin behind driver's seat similar to one behind passenger's seat.
