I bought this car used with 50k miles and was in mint condition. The dealer had to replace the passenger window motor before I took it home.
I have driven for a year as my daily driver and have taken trips like LA to Vegas and San Diego.
This car is awesome. Superior handling, Has major guns and is FAST! Always gets looks and positive comments wherever I go and it over 4 years old. Its flashy but not vulger. I use synthetic oil and change it every 3 months. I have NEVER had to add ANY oil ever! It just doesnt got through it. i have had Zero problems at all. Extremly reliable car. Comfort short trips OK., Long trips not so much. Little storage and tiny trunk are my only complaints.
Performance and Styling.
More storage in trunk or behind the back seat is needed. A CLOCK should be standard but isnt!
Pretty happy with my Z. I am the happy 2nd owner of a 2006 GT convertible with ~15K miles. She's like new. I like almost everything about it - good looks, fun to drive, quality fit and finish. The mileage isn't the best, but what do you expect? Its great as a 2nd car, but not sure I'd want it as a primary driver. I really enjoy the 3 F's - fast, fun...oh, and fast. The top is easy up-and-down. In the '06, missing USB and i-connectivity is rough, but I had Sirrius/XM installed and it sounds great on the Bose system. Can't wait for my next Z!
Drop the top!
I mean, that's why you buy it, right?
Also, the sound of the engine - it growls at you.
The geabox is not the smoothest - especially drom 1 to 2.
Other than that, she's a beast.
Picked up a 350Z Roadster 2 weeks ago. It has 36K miles on it, I am the third owner. The car is very clean with the exception of showing some wear in the interior. The previous owner liked Jewelry I have a feeling. This is my first sports car. All I can say is it's a blast to drive, especially with the top down. I'll take care of the interior with some time.
The car puts a smile on my face when ever I sit in the cockpit. Enough said. Good value.
6 speed manual, the convertible top, and the stereo.
The newer 370 series addresses the issues of cheap interior materials.
The car is fun to drive and it definitely gets s lot of looks. Even though the car almost five years old it still has a great style. The engine sounds is awesome. I have had few problems with the car except for having to replace the convertible top becasue it was cracking. Fortunately that was under warranty. The other problem has been the tires and the air pressure indicators. I had to replace the tires at 24,000 miles ($1100). The tires are quite pricey. But the most bothersome item is the air pressure indicator. They seem to be on a lot. The dealer has replaced a few of them over the years. But they seem to be always going on and the dealer is the only one that can turn it off.
The convertible top going down. Driving through wine country with the top down. It doesn't get any better than that.
Improve the quality of the convertible top, air pressure indicators for the tires. Everything else is great.
I've had my manual 2006 350Z Touring Convertible for 4 years, been fun but expected higher quality & reliability for $40k. Good-Fun car to drive, great styling, always turns heads. Good power, good mileage. I don't drive it very hard, it's a commute vehicle, but have pushed the speed and cornering a few times and had a blast. Bad-The stock tires had to be replaced after 26k miles ($700). Constant reliability problems (not including small items under $50), in a short 4 years, I've experienced a cracked drive shaft, cracked convertible top, bubbled coating on both door handles, failed convertible top mechanism, belt replacement after 2.5 years, interior paint degrading & peeling off
Body Style and Overall Look, One Touch Convertible Top, Easy-to-Use Console Settings, Quiet drive with top up, handles well, strong braking
Make the vehicle more reliable overall, improve the quality of the interior/exterior coatings/paint, improve clunkiness of transmission in low gears, use slightly longer life stock tires
