"Bought the car new. 175,000 miles. Owned an S2000 before but needed more storage and because virtually all my driving is long distance interstate I wanted lower revs at high speeds. The Z has had Tanabe springs, Nismo exhaust, Stillen rear spoiler and polished stock wheels from the beginning. Still love the way it looks, sounds and drives. I could sit and drive all day and have no aches. Favorite moments? When the car is washed, gassed up and loaded with luggage just before leaving on an extended road trip with the wife. Problems? The hatch latch mechanism needed to be rebuilt last year. Cost? $60. The front tires wear on the inside so I have them dismounted and swapped to opposite sides every 10K to even the tread. Everything is original including clutch and brakes. I get comments on the Daytona Blue all the time. Keep the fluids changed and I expect it to last 300K+ miles plus. Usually get 26 MPG at 80. Last trip, I had to drive around 60 because of the roads and got 30 MPG. Some of you don't care about mileage but when I get 540 miles to a tank and it only takes 18 gallons to fill it up (20 gallon capacity) I can't help but appreciate that when the next station is 30 miles away. I won't own this car forever but it will be one of the best I've had along with the S2000."

Best sports car for the price!

"I've owned my 2007 350z for over 4 years and I still love her like when she was new! Great styling of the exterior! I'm always getting compliments on it. Interior is nice too especially with the touring package. This car drives incredibly well! Throaty V6 engine putting out over 300 hp is a blast to drive, especially with the 7500 rpm redline. Handles very good on curvy roads and on the track. For the price you can get this car these days, it makes it one of the best sports car for the dollar today."

"The Nissan 350 z convertible is an awesome ride for the money. Real head turner! Very powerful with great handling! I wouldn't drive the Z in snow conditions due to rear wheel drive and so much power. They will not handle well in the snow. Definitely a summertime car!"

"Fun to drive and low maintenance. 0-60 speed not great and shouldn't try to line it up too often, but handling is awesome. Purchased for my 16 year old son and he loves it. Only low points are interior trim and if your over 6'2 it's a tough squeeze."
