The first word I said when I pulled into my drive way and got out of my brand new 2012 370z was wow!I have had it for a week now,I am most impressed with all aspects except the road /cabin noise.maybe some dynamat in the near future.the navigation system is money well spent.ample power,(I have a hayabusa,I know.)sound system,8 speakers,is excellent.I had my eye on the camaro ss and it would have been cheaper,but it. Can't compare to the 370z.(I still like the camaro).9.5 out of 10.the word I keep hearing about my 370z is sexy.reminds me of a porshe.I really like this car.
Had the Z about 5k miles so far, it is just about perfect in every way! The headlights light up everything, the interior truly makes you feel special and not regret one penny you spent on the car! I got the only manual on the lot at the time and it really is everything i hoped it would be, ample torque to pass ppl on the highway without a downshift and when you do downshift its intoxicating! Although some see the rough engine noise as a downfall i feel it's just one more thing that shows this is a raw sports car! It sounds coarse because of the variable cam profiles it uses at different rpm's.
Being able to park next to vehicles that cost 2-3x as much and not feel out of place and the interior with soft touch materials throughout
Loudest vehicle i've EVER been in, seriously loud over most road surfaces, its mostly tire noise, very little wind noise. The stock radio really sucks too!
I've had this car about 10 days now.
It is fast, comfortable and handles well.
I have owned a Corvette, several Porsches and several BMWs.
In many ways, this car is their equal, especially when you factor in the cost of the car.
Where else can you get this kind of performance for $38K?
This is not to say I do not plan to own more Corvettes, Porsches and BMWs in the future.
However, this is a car I predict I will look back on and be happy I owned it.
Nav system w/hard drive, Bluetooth audio and sat radio, synchrorevmatch transmission.
The handling and acceleration, of course, also.
It needs full power memory seats, rain sensor and curb view outside mirrors.
Being a Nissan, it should run on regular gas.
All I can say is do not buy a Nissan!
At 7k miles my car suffered complete engine failure. Blown head gasket, engine coolant in the combustion chamber. How did Nissan react? They replaced the head gasket and not the motor. Well now 5k miles later the engine is starting to act up again.
This goes with all the other problems the car has had. The AC has failed, the tpms system malfunctions. The manual tranny sounds horrible. All this at under 10k miles. Stay away!
