Great "old school" sports car.
I've been owning 370Z for 8 years. My Z is a Base version with MT. When I bought it, I was choosing between 370Z, BMW Z4, Chevrolet Corvette and Ford Mustang. I wanted some cheap, simple and reliable "old school" sports car with manual gearbox. I finally chose Z, and I've never had a single regret. Of course, it's not the fastest car, not the most comfortable one, and it's not luxurious at all, but it's unbeatable by the quality/performance/reliability/price ratio. The VQ37 is a bullet-proof engine with endless lifespan. My Z has never been in service for all 8 years and 40k miles (I do all periodic maintenance myself in my garage). I bought it brand new for $28k, and I don't know any other sports car with the same level of power and handling for this money. What else... Cheap parts (as for any other Nissan), HUGE amount of affordable after-market performance upgrades, simple design and great reliability. The only complain I have about 370Z is that the base version seats are not very comfortable, and after 2-3 hours of driving your back may start asking for stopping and taking some rest.
Slow and noisy
Cramped and uncomfortable, bad on gas, horrible suspension noise and engine knocking, over heats easily, cheap interior materials,.no cargo space at all, radio and ac controls are ackward
A drivers car
This car has beautiful curves, an amazing exhaust note and a powerful engine. It can handle tight turns with very little to no body roll. You can't help but wanting to find a nice empty and open road to run through all of the gears on. I never though I would enjoy getting on the highway so much just to hear my car go down it.
