Model value: Nissan's 2007 350Z manages to capture all the excitement of the original Z car. Sure, launches were quick, but the car remained planted and ran through the gears precisely. In addition, the use of aluminum for the instrument finishers, door handles and other places enhances the high-quality look of the interior. Has never failed to start or left me stranded. Seatbelt fasteners were also added to help keep seatbelts from flapping in the wind. Design cues passed on from the first-generation Z® include the long nose and short deck styling, triangular cabin form and the lines extending from the arch-shaped roof to the hatchback opening. A key component to reducing interior noise is a tempered glass wind deflector located between the seats, which directs wind out and over the cabin.
Not perfect but no car is. The only down side is that it is not good in the snow ,but I don't drive it in the winter to much. I-4 and V-6 refer to the configuration and number of cylinders. The three-lock, single latch system was created to give a more secure seal, while also making the opening and closing process easier. The base cushion is firm and long for additional support, while bolster cutouts under the thighs optimize pedal operation.
This car leaves a smile on my face. This is typically measured in liters 3. Traction is very important when hammering down to get out into traffic. Everything in the cockpit is pointedly styled, and just flat out works. Causes clutch failure if your an extreme hot-rodder. You look in Consumer Reports and the 350Z is the only Nissan as reliable as a Honda. Four years after the Z car's reintroduction to the U.
It can now be honestly considered one of the best sports cars for the money. And, unlike other convertibles in its class, the top stows compactly under a lightweight, powered tonneau cover, completely hiding the top when down. My car is now 10 years old and has 95k miles. It has the same engine and similar performance attributes in a soft-top convertible style. The cargo space is surprisingly large, though, fitting suitcases and a fair amount of grocery bags easily.

Something strange happened between the time Nissan introduced the 350Z in 2003 and today, when the deceptively similar-looking 2007 model arrived for this review. Also, the Z® features standard dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors, and seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters. And is as reliable as the day it was new. I'm not sure how many groceries people are buying if I can fit my costco runs into this and they're having problems. Every other car I've driven feels like it sits on the road nice enough to be sporty. The Corvette costs more and is actually a slightly different animal. Not so easy to pack groceries into.
It's not a downside that it needs premium gas, the downside to premium gas is that it's now 50 cents a gallon more than regular vs most of my life when it was just 20 cents more. Data Unavailable Third Leg Room in. The lows are rear storage,premium fuel required, front and rear tires are different sizes preventing rotation and early tire wear on the front; and some of the interior pieces are painted and scratch easily but still better than say a Mustang of the same year. Inside, the Z is obviously a pure driver's car. Depending on how heavy my foot is that tank.
Exterior To the common observer, the outside of the 2007 350Z will look remarkably similar to every other Z since 2003. Structural reinforcements were incorporated to strengthen the Z® Roadster unibody versus the Z® Coupe , including a center floor V-shaped cross bar connecting the side sills and a front A-shaped cross bar reinforcing the front end. Under the hood a thin, removable brace connects the two shock towers. Send David an Hide full review. Another interior feature on the Z® Coupe is an integrated aluminum rear suspension strut tower brace.
The 350Z has a number of trims, including Enthusiast, Touring, and Grand Touring. I only give 4 stars because it is everything but practical as your only car. Our showroom, amenities, and service drive are open extended hours for your convenience. Data Unavailable Cargo Area 2-Door Coupe Manual Transmission-350Z Select Trim to compare. Nissan 350Z in the Market Believe it or not, automotive journalists like it when an automaker gets it right. The long list of standard equipment includes automatic temperature control, a lockable rear luggage box behind the passenger seat, center console with solid aluminum look, power windows with auto one-touch up and down, power door locks, aluminum pedals except Base model and HomeLink® Universal Transceiver except base model.
