A Mistake

2005 Nissan 350Z Touring 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
Want to look good on the road? Then this may be your car. The body styling is sleek and exotic. It is fitted with an engine that sounds mean and has the zip to really move you. The true test of ownership, though, comes from driving for several months. After that, you realize the Z requires patience at the repair shop and money - lots of it. During the brief periods that the car is out of the shop, it is fun to drive. The bucket seats are narrow and can be quite uncomfortable after several hours of driving. Mechanical problems, dealer/warranty issues, and an uncomfortable ride are the price for looking good on the road. Unfortunately, the fun soon subsides.
Favorite Features
The appearance is truly awesome and the power of the Z is a real blast - especially if you are used to a 4 or 6 cyclinder sedan.
Suggested Improvements
First, a total recall. The car is not nearly ready for production and suffers from design immaturity. Second, Nissan needs to solve the tire tracking problem (a set of tires is gone in less than a year). Third, Nissan warranty and dealer support needs help. Smiling while saying "no" is not good PR.
