2006 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Nissan skimped on the materials used to make up for all the performance it packed in this $30,000 car. The overall interior "feel" is very cheap. We knew this before purchasing & were willing to make the compromise. However, we didn't bargain for all the rattles, creaks, and clanging we have with our Z. We've had several mechanical issues that usually takes the dealer multiple times to fix. We've tried working with a few Nissan dealers for service work and have been very disappointed in all aspects of their customer service. This is a beautiful car that's fun to drive, even on a daily basis. We recommend the Z, as long as you're willing to accept the negative aspects of Z ownership.

Favorite Features

For a sports car, the Z is fairly comfortable with decent storage, and surprising fuel economy (nearly 30 MPG highway). The power and acceleration, handling, and braking are excellent. Headroom is pretty good for a sports car, too. I love its sexy exterior design and aggressive exhaust note.

Suggested Improvements

Continue to improve interior ergonomics (like center console release button where arms rest, power outlet placement, springy action of coin tray, etc). Work on dealer customer service. Improve quality of materials used on vehicle. Get rid of rattles and creaks. More storage would be nice, too.
