The interior paint/coating on all plastic panels (door, dash, etc) scratches off with normal use to reveal a white plastic.
Nissan knows about this and chooses to do nothing about the problem. I own five different cars all older then the 350 and more mileage, I don't see this in any of those cars.
This is unsightly and started soon after warranty expired, 36 months.
I have to have all these panels removed and painted by body shop.
Also, my power windows motors quit, also known problem Nissan chooses to not solve.
I do not recommend Nissan.

2008 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Bought used 1 owner only 7858 mi! Has all warranties. What a car! Had a 280z, no comparison, but I loved it. No nit-pick's (like telescoping steering wheel). Have had several sport cars, this one is it! So easy to drive, do not get tired after 3 hrs, like my Chevy, must be the seats. Mileage is great for this h. P., 21-24 mpg like book says, but did get 26 mpg at 75 mph. Love to clean it and feel fine lines of car, I know, I'm a nut case.
Excellent coupe for spirited driving with great reliability. Only complaint is needing new tires at 12,000 miles. Handling, acceleration and comfort and good looks are the best for the price! Would buy again in a second.
My last 3 cars have been sports cars, (Mustang GT, Subaru WRX, 350Z) and this trumps them all This car pulls beautifully, runs great, is super reliable, amazing performance. Just love it. I recommend it highly
Great handling, Actually good in the rain, insane power, beautiful engine note, Great HIDs, Great Brakes, Engine is bulletproof, decent hwy MPG (24 @ 80 MPH), Amazing color paint (AX6 red), Low price, beautiful gauges, 7500 RPM redline, 306 HP
Don't even think of leaving house in snow, paint chips/scratches SO easily, Windows leak water occasionally, eats tires, bad visibility, bumper is very low and susceptible to damage, no cargo space (what else do you expect), no fog lights, small interior
