I purchased a 2006 350z roadster new in dec '06. The car was 3 days old when the tach started sticking. Dealer told me the problem couldn't be located, and basically to live with it! On a road trip, the low tire pressure light kept coming on for no reason. Not what I expected from a $42,000 car ! Traded it in in Sept '09 and was shocked to discover the car had lost over half it's value in under 3 years. It only had 20,000 mile on it and was only worth $18.500. Ever own another Nissan ? No thanks !!
I am a proud owner of a 2004 350z enthusiast coupe. There is no difference in 2004-2006 models mechanically. I have to say out of any sports car I have ever driven, this one gets me the most looks, compliments, and pleasure while driving. Besides making the absolute best engine sound in the world, from an engine that won best engine by JD Power and associates in 2004, I can not get over the upgrades available for it. It is expensive to upgrade when talking about turbo, but as of right now, I can not help but laugh at a new Mustang GT when I take it on the freeway....and I paid $10,000 less for my car than the mustang!!! LOL. Take pricing into the account, and the comfort issue goes away. I am 6'6". I fit in this car!!! If you have issues fitting, then....umm, buy a F350, not a Nissan 350. Absolutely, without a doubt, the best car for the money. Got mine with 21,000 miles on it when I bought it. When I saw the salesman's 2004, with 140,000 miles on it, still running strong, I was sold on it. Buy one, slap an intake on it, slap a good exhaust, for combined....$350 on ebay, and laugh at those new mustangs as they fade in your mirrors. Don't debate between the two. This car is better. Period. The only thing the mustang GT has over this car is two seats, and two cylinders. So, it weighs more, and has 13 more horses? LOL. As I said...intake....and you are there. Highway, my car also hits 33 MPG, also having 315 horses. WHAT ELSE DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU!!!!!! P.S. Just drove the 370Z, and wound up turning down a $28,000 deal on a sport coupe because I just liked the 350z more. The comfort is a REAL issue in the 370z, although it does look awesome ;)
Besides being the cutest car on the rode., i love the way the car handles. Feels solid and love the power thus car has
