I have nothing but great things to say about my new 370Z (it's a 2010, but new to me!). I've owned the car for a little over a month and have had a chance to put it through it's paces. First I'll list the Cons: 1. Road noise can be a little loud at times. My feeling is it's a combination of the factory tires and not to much sound damping to save on weight. It is a sports car, so the noise is common. 2. The oil temp rides a little hot, especially if you live in warm climate areas. The 370Z has a fail safe that puts the car into a "limp mode" when the oil temp hits about 250-260 degrees. Easily resolvable with an aftermarket oil cooler. 3. Outside visibility is poor, this has been addressed with the 2011 as they have added a back up camera option. Now the Pros: 1. The performance of the car is AMAZING. It handles great, at low speeds or high, and on straight a ways and curves. I'm just shocked at times at how well it handles. It's on par with sports cars costing almost twice as much. 2. All the creature comforts are there. I got mine with the Nav. package and it includes Bluetooth, weather, traffic, and it can integrate with your iPod. 3. Every where I go I get looks in the car. The styling is quite unique and very sporty. If you are in the market for a 2 seater sports car that won't break your budget, then I highly recommend you look at a the 370Z!
I bought a 2009 370Z with 12,000 miles. This car is a great performance value. It's just the right size, and the looks are fantastic. It looks better in person than in photos. I often get positive comments on the car. The interior is very nice. Seats are very supportive and the Bose stereo is great. Love the Ipod connectivity. The only thing I would change is the silly computer display in the left gauge spot. Performance is very good (but not supercar great). The power is very linear and responsive. Clutch and shifter are among the best I've driven. I agree with the two most common complaints: rear blind spots, and highway road noise. I've gotten used to both, and would not shy away from this car because of these minor faults.
It handles extremely well, has plenty of power, and great brakes that allow the driver to really enjoy all aspects of the car while turning heads.
