2003 Nissan 350Z performance 3.5L V6 from North America
Love my Zed
Replaced the transmission once, again I have a grind in 5th. Muffler rusted off at one of the pipes. Bose system skips to the point the CD player can't be used.
I obsess about this car. I Love to drive it, I'll just go out and drive. Never felt that way with any other car. Car feels like its firmly planted even at 250Km/h, can't say that about too many cars. Many people wonder how one can fit anything in this "little" car, but I have no problems, I can fit two golf bags or enough luggage for a week long road trip.
The styling is very modern, just needs a bump in power output to compete with other sports cars and many new sedans these days. Nothing worse than being pulled on by a similarly priced four seater. The REO40s are absolute garbage as far as tires go. They do have a stiff wall, but the traction is no good. Best first upgrade are good tires (REO50 Pole Positions are my next, DO NOT BUY FALKEN ANYTHING) and rims which make the car even more fun. The tire feathering on this car is obscene, expect to go through a lot of tires if you're gonna push it. Suspension mods can relieve this problem.
I get bored of cars, but this baby is with me for the long haul. I often joke around that I'd soon lose my house. One word of advice is get the extended warranty, you won't regret it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
