"I have owned Nissans since the first Datsun 240-Z. I love them. They are well engineered, handle beautifully, and retain their value."

Will go .5 past the speed of light!

"This car is the total package! Has off the line power, 60+ mph acceleration, TS, handling, and more. People spend $1,000's in upgrades just to rival what this car have OE. I have the factory upgraded Super Touring with the added Hp/torque, hyped suspension, bigger exhaust, and Brembo brakes. Adding just cold air gives a little more and with this car, the littlest of more will be noticed immediately. The key is Hp to weight ratio, great Hp with low weight equals ZOOM! Period! This car viciously holds the road in the curves with very little stress or effort on the suspension. This car absolutely slaughters all of the big block SC's when you are in the curves. So, if they try to pick at you, get them on a curvy road and step on it! It won't even be close! The way Ric Flair would say it....."WHOO!!!". I'm 6'4", 260 lbs; there's plenty of space for me. This car holds me right. The seats are comfy and adjustable for long trips. To me, this car is for serious experienced drivers! Not the car for learners! Other than riding a motorcycle, this car makes me feel "One" with it and the road. Drive safe, and may the force be with you! (God Bless!)"

"I enjoy driving this car. It is almost perfect for a two-seat sports car. Mine was a daily driver. It looks great, drives fast, and handles everything I throw at it. There is more room in the back than what you would imagine. Flaws: The alignment does not allow for a change in camber, which means that you may have to replace the front lower control arm bushing every 60,000 miles. This car does not like water, ice, or any kind of rough road, but it always comes through. My 2003 has an interior setup which isn't perfectly ideal. I think later models fixed this. I also have a problem with the Bose radio. My bass hasn't worked properly since I bought the car, and it is next to impossible to get to the stereo components without damaging anything. (I decided not to press my luck, and my factory subwoofer still doesn't work)"

"Had this for my second vehicle. Sat in the garage in the winter. Drove it in the spring in till fall. Love my 350z. It's not an everyday car. Cheap to maintain and cheap parts. Great car. Not really a daily commuter, the comfort level isn't that great, interior is noisy since it's a hatch back. The paint is also cheap quality. Interior trim pieces scratch easily. But overall great sporty car."

Georgous blue 2005 Nissan 350z Roadster.

"This car was built up as a promotional car for a professional baseball player on California Angels. Have proof. He was only allowed to drive for 3,000 miles then returned to dealership in 100% condition. I am 2nd owner besides the professional pitcher. Car is always garaged. Car has never been driven with over 2,500 miles per year. Car has all high performance parts including cold air intake,21 inch chrome rims with extra wide low profile Z rated high performance expensive new tires and expensive high quality brake pads all the way around. Never been in accident. Only driven 28,500 miles in 11 years. All leather and power instruments. Extra horsepower than normal 350Z's."

"Purchased used in August 2014 with 41,435 miles. Traded a 2013 Hyundai with 19,265 miles. It's a great sports car and fun to drive. If you're looking for an affordable daily driver this is it. The only draw back to the car is the convertible top is expensive to repair. If you have to change the bands that retracts the top the last of the way into the well it will set you back $600.00 at the dealer. Otherwise a very affordable and fun car to drive. It turns heads."
