Fun to drive, very reliable only problem was drivers side window motor. Added cold air intake and high flow exhaust, gets 24.5 MPG. Track model handles well w/ 18/19 inch wheels, bimbro brakes and stiff suspension.
Exterior look, handles well, fun to drive
More HP, Nissan needs to offer a turbo version. Too much trans. noise at idle, dealer said it was normal for that trans. At idle sounds like the input shaft bearing or throughout bearing is shot. Cheap interior, but for the price, acceptable.
Bought the car on 3/07 and until 7/07 have a nasty problem with oil consumption. The car keeps on eating up oil and Nissan is fully aware of this problem but not doing anything about it. Just got the engine replaced from the dealer after returning to the dealer for the 4th time. Have not had a time to enjoy the car, but instead going to the dealership every other Saturday to re-check the oil consumption problem. If you like wasting your time and going to the dealer every other weekends and worry about if your car has oil or not. Then I highly recommend this car. Overall my first Nissan that I bought and I dislike Nissan after 4 months of driving this car.
Just bought my new 350Z the only bad thing is that I cannot drive it enough. Daily driving in the city does not challenge this car at all. I have to get out in the open road or in the canyons with plenty of turns. That's where the fun begins. Love my first 350Z.
6 speed manual transmission. Love the close gear ratio.
More torque and horses, but I think 300 horsepower is more than most people could handle
