This is a very great car to drive. My car is the base model 350z coupe. Has less "features" than the other models. Doesn't have the stereo unit controls on the steering wheel. Steering wheel seems a bit less sporty than what you get out of most other sports cars. The power is great, and sounds great especially with dual intakes! Definitely a head turner and I'm always getting props. Base Model comes without Traction Control System and the Limited Slip Differential. Meaning, you have to be VERY careful when taking turns and gassing it. You can easily lose control. Which is a reason why professional drifters prefer this model because you can slide everywhere. Donuts are easy. Very fun car.
Engine/exhaust sound is great. I love the automatic window up/down feature for BOTH windows. Dual intake. Sometimes I love the fact that my car doesn't have TCS and LSD to slide, but sometimes when you DO want to take a hard corner while gassing it, you can't without sliding all through the turn.
Better interior. However Nissan met their suggested improvements with the new 370z.
This is the ideal sports car for its price. The handling is very in touch with the road while body roll remains minimal. The unique exhaust note, long legged 6 speed transmission, and scare your girlfriend power under your right foot make this car a fun drive.
rwd, 6spd, 306hp, handling and great looks for under $30k.
wider rims and tires, cruise control on base model, that stupid compartment above the radio-i hate that thing.
The car is an absolute hoot to drive. The biggest problem I have with it is that I should have spent the extra money to go with the second level trim to get the cruise and traction control. Nissan should include those two devices and the extra air bags on every Z they sell even if it means adding a little more to the base price. It would make a big difference, especially given the high performance status of this vehicle. Remember, it's not just for looks, this car already has the eye appeal, it's a safety issue and that should be at the top of all other considerations. Nissan, wake up and get with the program!
This is a fun car to drive, no ifs ands or buts.
Safety, safety, safety, put the limited slip rear, extra air bags, and (here's a stretch) how about a 3 point harness in every Z.
It is a great car for a price tag under $30,000. I would not spring for a loaded model that puts the price tag close to $40,000. Would rather get in to a Corvette or Porsche Cayman. Definitely a performance oriented car that comes with less than great fuel consumption and a tight but pleasant interior. Have not gotten close to the advertised fuel rating. The car only sees city driving, so that could be the reason.
18" wheels, smooth and powerful engine.
The trunk is very small. Can't even put a piece of luggage in there. That's what you get when you buy a sports car though.
