Nissan 350Z / 370Z Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 2dr Hatch 332-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed manual RWD
My last two Nissans have each gone over 150,000 miles. Both were easy keepers, reliable, and inexpensive to service. I expect the same from this one. Servicing costs on the Cayman are a nightmare by comparison, despite long recommended service interval
2008 2dr Hatch 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Very reliable, have not had long enough to evaluate durability.
2007 2dr Convertible 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
I drove this car in 15 degree weather, It cranked up the same as 80-90 degree days
2006 2dr Convertible 300-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual RWD
So far no problems.
2005 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
nissans have always been know to be well built and reliable.
2004 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
never had to do any major repairs on my Z
2004 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Relatively cheap to maintan for a sportscar. Nissan engines can run pretty high in mileage and be just fine.
2004 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual RWD
Strong, durable engine and drivetrain. Have only had standard maintenance - no repairs. This includes taking the car to the track and autocross on occasion.
2004 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual RWD
I bought mine with about 160,000 miles on it kind of as a toy as I didn't anticipate having a 400 mile a week commute. Through all that though it has been dead reliable. Here are the only issues I've had with it: - Clutch needed to be bled as pedal would sink to floor in hot weather (still operable though) - Replaced/upgraded brakes - Alignment was way out of whack and feathering front tires (common problem) - Driver's side window motor failed the day I bought it (fixed obviously, common problem, no issues since with OEM Nissan replacement) - Trunk latch and dampers were shot and needed to be replaced It starts up and runs like clockwork. I could see this car going another 100K miles in the hands of the right owner.
2003 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual RWD
Nissan has a decent reputation for quality. After doing copious research I found the 350Z to have pretty darn good reliability for a sports car.

owned 3 of these over the past 15 years, all were very reliable, workhorses and offered longterm durability and performance.
2007 4dr SUV 320-horsepower 5.3L V8
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
time tested
2007 4dr SUV 320-horsepower 5.3L V8
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
From a 13 hour trip to severe snow, the Tahoe has performed greatly
2005 4dr SUV 295-horsepower 5.3L V8
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
So far... no problems at all. I hope it stays this way for more years to come.

2005 4dr SUV, ext. 295-horsepower 5.3L V8
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
The transmission replacement coupled with no way of knowing if another such leak would trash a second hurts our reliability feelings. The front end is also sensitive to tie rod and ball joint damage. Not what one would expect for an "off road" vehicle.
