370Z first impression

I gave up my Mustang GT for this little gem (Silver touring with nav and 6 speed)and don't regret it. It handles like no other car I have ever driven and even the ride is better than expected. The power rush is unbelievable for 3.7 liters and just about ever one gives it a double take, little wonder, it's probably the only one in town. I am unfamiliar with the overall reliability of this particular machine which appears to be very technical and closely packaged. My only gripe at this point is why the 16 bolt plastic pan covering the entire engine bottom including the oil drain plug and filter??? Why 16 bolts for a plastic cover, it costs an extra $10.00 for an oil change due to the labor required for removal and reinstallation!!!

370Z - Got Yours Yet?

If you want an affordable performance machine then the 370Z is it. I fell in love with the 350Z when they came out and when I was ready to purchase Nissan dropped the 370z into the equation. I loved the changes so much it convinced me to buy one. The Exterior, SEXY! interior is now what it should've been, and an extra 26HP from the 07-08 Z's why not! I bought the canarie yellow sports package and touring edition and what a head turner it is. Every where I go people just compliment me. I tell them that the bank owns it and they reply: "But You're Driveing It". Do yourself a favor and buy the car that will put a smile on your face. Enjoy, AHZO A Happy Z Owner!

I love this car

by from Tacoma Wa on December 5, 2011

It hugs the road on corners, it takes off like a rocket. It has so many features at times I become overwhelmed. I get so many compliments even from random people on the street.

This car is everything I thought it would be. Highly recommend the Touring, Sport and Navigation packages. This is my daily driver and I have had it for 5 months with no issues. This winter will be the real test. My biggest surprise is getting 25 to 27 mpg. If you drive it hard you will not get this type of gas mileage, but even with spirited driving I am getting these types of numbers. Now to the down size, there is very limited storage and luggage space, BUT this is a sports car. It is a real bargin for under 40K.

I love this car. It is very fast and everyone says it's a beautiful car. For the price, I think it is worth every bit when you factor in the performance to price ratio. I believe the 0-60mph is 4.7 seconds. I got mine used for $18,000, and it is a 2009 with 63,000 miles. One scare I had was that the thermostat gauge on the dash is actually the oil temperature and not the radiator temp. It got up to 220 degrees, and thought it was running hot/ blown head gasket. I then looked closer and it the oil temp gauge. One thing is if you race it for long period of time, it needs an oil cooler installed or it will loose power if it overheats. Once you turn car off it will go back to normal. I guess the 2012 and newer have the oil cooler already installed.

What a ride!

by from Mclean, VA on December 4, 2012

This is the coolest car I've ever owned. I bought it 2+ years ago and I am still in love with this ride. Not only it is sporty in all senses, but it turns heads every day I ride it.

SOLO test drove this car for 90 minutes! i can say one thing to sum up this car. "LOVE AT FIRST DRIVE!" If you been looking for a car under $40k that can take sharp 90 degree turns at high speeds? then this is your car."Its a car for The Skilled Driver". DO NOT foregoe the sport package, It really makes a difference in aggressive performance capability. i test drove the non sport after the sport for 20 min, though its still a great sports car. It didnt feel as planted as the sports package and brakes were much less aggressive. The nav quality seemed very good though i didnt get to use it much. my only let down was the stereo. kinda weak for being part of a $4000 upgrade with very few accoutrements. The touring package which ONLY adds, power seats, a cargo cover, a bose stereo, leather and alcantara (fake suede) seats,in my opinion is kinda overpriced by $2,000. A touring/sport/auto is $40,120... $38,550 seems more reasonable in my opinion (NOT incl. nav), The base+sport ($34.8k) or base/sport/auto($36.1k) are the real bargains The sport package is a performance bargain. 19" rays engineering staggered performance wheels, bridgestone potenza tires, lowered sport suspension, 14"F-13,8:"R AKEBONO high performance brakes, close ratio syncro-rev match transmission and viscous limited-slip differential $3,000 is a reasonably low price to pay. The car is fast, has the handling of an exotic, and has the best sport auto transmission in a car under $50k. the base + sport is the true bargain at under $35k. i just wish a better stereo was standard and a power seat for the driver at base would have been nice. nothing heavy and luxurious, just a up-down-back forth power seat with a manual fold. Lastly, in a tight yet comfy cabin like this one. i would have engineered in a flat-bottom steering wheel. The Z is near perfect. WARNING: this car is a 2 seater with a small trunk if you need space? look at a camaro G37s or camaro SS
