2003 Nissan 350Z V6 from North America
Easy to handle, fun to drive, beats the Mustang gt, RX8, and handles like a dream
The tires lose air and the front tires are loud.
The car is a joy to drive on the open road.
I have had no problems in the eight months of ownership.
The Z is always a head turner. More than once men from 20- to seventy have asked to drive it.
The Boss stereo is somewhat lacking for a system of this line.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own a 03' 350Z and can answer some of your problems. There is a dealer recall on all 03' and 04' Z's for alignment problems. They have to much toe in resulting in sever tire wear on the inside of the tire. Nissan will realign your car correctly and replace your front tires under the recall. Further, there is also a recall on the amplifier for the Bose Stereo. The amplifier causes the stereo to sound "muddy" with no clarity. This was also replaced under warranty. Neither of these warranties were made aware to the owners, but if you complain, they will take care if it, even if the standard warranty plan has expired. My car drives and sounds great now.
This comment is regarding the front tire air pressure. This is probably not a dealer or manufacturer problem. You should go see your local tire shop to resolve this issue.
My 2004 350Z drains the battery in about a week when it is not driven. Research on"IdentiFix" shows the radio draw is excessive and is a confirmed fix. The cause is a parasitic drain on the #37 fuse on the Bose Radio (approx. 8 amps). Disconnecting the radio stops the drain. The dealer states this is within factory parameters.
Because it wasn't a recall. It was a warranty extension.
