2006 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast Coupe from North America
Great looking, but would never buy a Nissan again!!!
Driver side window motor reset twice finally replaced
Right rear bolt holding shock to frame broken
Passenger side air vent breaks
Tire pressure indicator faulty.
Great acceleration and power
Quality of car extremely poor given cost and type of car
Reliability and frequent repairs way too high for first year of ownership - 10 times
Very dissatisfied with Nissan to resolve issues or provide customer satisfaction
Car was a lemon and they would do nothing other than offer to trade in at Blue Book value.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Your`s was obviously a lemon. Nissan in Australia have a very good reputation and the 350Z is regarded as a high quality, highly sought-after sports car. It rivals, and in many cases, surpasses some of the European equivalents, some of which do have significant quality control issues.
Obviously this owner does not know the difference between reliability and just minor repairs. Reliability refers if it ever break down on you mechanically, leaving you stranded on the road. Someone breaking the vent with their own hands is, or a faulty window motor does not fall into this category EVER.
I agree with the first guy, I had used my friends 350Z Track edition, and have to admit the quality was poor, for a car which is supposed to be the flagship of Nissan in Australia. Interior plastic very poor and scratch too easily, the motor has ample power, but the inside I thought was a disappointment.
I bought a 2006 Nissan 350Z GT in October 2009.
It's powerful & overall quite reasonable on fuel, 23 mpg around town, & handles extremely well.
I've fitted after market alloys, 19" mania with 275/35 x 19 rear & 245/35x 19 front and Falken tyres, and it looks well nice now.
It's been very reliable, no problems at all with it, serviced at my mate's local garage, avoiding Nissan's rip off prices obviously.
Build quality is very good, interior leather trim, heated seats, blue-tooth.
I can't find fault with anything on the car, hence I would most definitely recommend it to anyone considering a good and reasonably priced sports car, which doesn't cost a fortune to run and maintain.
