CarReview's opinion of the: 2011 Nissan 370Z Sport | 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster | 2009 Nissan 370Z Coupe
Pros:

  • Great improvement over the successful 350Z
  • Nice body lines, Rays wheels are icing on the cake
  • Powerful motor with great sound
  • GTR influence
Cons:
  • Manual transmission not as slick as the competition
  • No lumbar support or telescoping steering wheel
  • Either less weight or more power and this could be an exotic challenger for a fraction of the cost

Ruling: Yes there are other practical 2+2 sports coupes available for less than $35k, like the American Pony Cars or Hyundai Genesis, but if you are looking for a purpose built two seat coupe you can live with every day, this is the one. The closest competitors are the Corvette and Cayman, but these move you $10k higher without the striking looks. This is an excellent value for a performance ride, just make sure you test both the manual and automatic transmissions before buying.

Price Paid:  $37500.00 from Dealer

Year / Model Reviewed:
2009 370z Touring w/ Sort package

Strengths:

Quality
Looks
Persimmon interior
All the desperate housewives want to go for a ride with me

Weaknesses:
Blind spot on passenger side

Summary:
I agree with the author of this article. I just picked my 370z up last week, and have only but good things to say about it. i agree with the quality of the built. My neighbor drives a 2009 335i that costs about $15k more and fit and finish, as well as performance are right there with his BMW. If you decide to buy one, and you can afford it, opt for the Sport package, which puts great rims and wider rubber on the car. Makes the car look even meaner than it already is. Also recommend the automatic, which will shift faster than anyone could do manually. Fuel mileage (for those who care) is about 23 MPG this first week, with mixed driving. She does require Premium though. Just a head-turner and a blast to drive! Great bang for the buck.
