Nissan 350Z 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 full 2009 Nissan 350Z review

Strong, durable engine and drivetrain. Have only had standard maintenance - no repairs. This includes taking the car to the track and autocross on occasion. full 2004 Nissan 350Z review
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. full 2004 Nissan 350Z review

My car has 50k on it and it was heavily track used by the previous owner. Basically no problems or major repairs. Pwr steering pump went out, given it was a first year model, notorious for bugs. After that, only needed new tires. full 2003 Nissan 350Z review

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. full 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban review
