Fun car to drive, with caveats
By 350Z on


2005 Nissan 350Z Touring 2dr Roadster (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Fun car to drive on back roads, esp. along the Calif coastline. Just be aware of maint costs. I drive it easy, only 7K a year, and still replaced 6 tires, tranny, the top, clutch pedal, clutch and flywheel. Clutch chatter is embarrassing! But, she has power and hugs the roads nicely. Stops on a dime and accelerates briskly. I think the traction control is about to go--what happened to Japanese engineering? Oh and subwoofer failed twice (note I owned 2 other Nissans but not sports cars and loved them)

Best Features

Exhaust note, handling, power, decent storage for a roadster, and 3 cup holders! My friend's BMW M roadster has none, hehe

Worst Features

Already subsumed by the 370Z so no comments needed about improvements.
