2006 Nissan 350Z

Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Nissan 350Z

  • The manual gearbox shifter is delightful to use. It has short, easy throws and the clutch works well with it.

    - Carpoint.com
  • The Z is agile, limber yet sure-footed thanks to its 18-inch radials, tuned sports suspension and speed-sensitive power steering system that requires just the right driver-in-control effort into and out of corners and sharp twists in the road.

    - Cars.com
  • Plant the throttle, let the tach swing north and the Z shoves you back in the seat.

    - Edmunds.com
  • Power delivery is linear and athletic, with the most fun coming on around 4,000 rpm. Redline is 6,600.

    - Edmunds.com
  • The steering felt precise and communicative, exhibiting a nice on-center feel.

What reviewers liked least about the Nissan 350Z

  • There's no glove box and the two small storage bins behind the supportive seats are hard to reach.

    - Carpoint.com
  • Compared to the bass-heavy rumble of a domestic V8 or the frantic revving of an S2000 or Boxster S, the 350Z's soundtrack isn't as inspiring.

Nissan 350Z Comparisons

  • ...even the competition-style Track trim costs much less than rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz SLK, which begins at $39,400, and the Porsche Boxster, which starts at $42,600.

    - Carpoint.com
  • ...the car has a power-to-weight ratio of about one horsepower for every 11.1 pounds. For reference, this is roughly the same ratio that Mustang GTs and Chevy Camaro Z28s have.

Best one-liner about the Nissan 350Z

  • The three-year tease by Nissan is over. Since the company first hinted it might build a new Z car, we've been anticipating our first turn at the wheel much like Cinderella eyed the ball.
