Reviewed: 2005 Nissan 350Z

2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6 5-speed shiftable automatic RWD

Why the 2005 Nissan 350Z?

Exterior styling

grill and fenderwell openings. the flow of the body lines overall

Interior styling

steering wheel is the most comfortable, size and thickness, i have ever held. seats are very snug fitting. guages are very easy to read and well layed out.

Powertrain performance

smooth constant torque band, with enough H.P. for daily driving, without sacrificing fuel economy

Brand reputation & image

this car has been around for over 35 yrs and i have never heard a bad word or report on it.

Reliability & durability

nissans have always been know to be well built and reliable.

Why Not the 2005 Nissan 350Z?

Ride smoothness

springs are very stiff, resulting in a very hard bump going over interstate bridges.

Price or payments

i feel like the car is just slightly over-priced on its own merits, but when compared to other vehicles in its class it appears very affordable.

Insurance cost

for such a well handling car the insurance is too high. but it is classed as a sport coupe. as for depreciation, i dont understand why they dont hold their value, since they are well built and will achieve 200k miles without any major problems.

Cargo capacity

as with all sports cars, there is very little interior storage due to its size, limiting the amount of luggage it can carry. but there are plenty of small to medium "cubby" storage places.
