2009 Nissan 370Z Long-Term Road Test


2009 Nissan 370Z: The Sticky-Icky

November 02, 2009

I've driven our 370Z a bunch of times and I like it quite a bit. Besides the blind spots when trying to back out of spaces, I think this thing is an absolute blast to drive.

Random weekend errands are made fun. Gotta go over to Home Depot for some JB Weld? Awesome. Pick up some pickling spice from the grocery store? Perfect. Go across town to see an open house? Even better. Good acceleration, auto-blip shift and an all around fun package make this thing a great little weekend car, provided you don't need the cargo room.

The only thing that annoyed me about this car was actually using it's cargo area. The pressure hatch release button in the back doesn't always seem to release. There were a few times I had to press it multiple time to get it to let go completely. Once I had to shove the hatch back down to get it to release with another press of the button. Honestly in the grand scheme of things, not that big of a deal but annoying none the less.

The next time I get the keys I got to make sure I make good use of it. I think a good drive up the coast along Highway 1 would be a great idea.
