Editor's Overview

Nissan's Z cars have been strong performers for decades. The current-generation Nissan 370Z carries that torch both on the road with potent V6 power choices and on the balance sheet with stellar resale value that competes favorably with rivals from pricier brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi.

It's fun to drive, gets good gas mileage. Doesn't go well in snow.

You SHOULD put your top down....However, if the top stops working, don't let Nissan tell you that the hydraulics need to be replaced. Find a mechanic who can work on your car and find the problem. It's likely the wiring harness. Also, the slave cylinders have issues and require the use of high performance fluids if you have a manual transmission. My issues have more to do with Nissan and the service people than my car...

- Angela C

Costs more to maintain because it has to have premium gas & full synthetic oil.

I enjoy the reaction time to hitting the brakes or the gas on my vehicle and how the vehicle can 'zip' around. I dislike the cloth interior of my vehicle. I also enjoy the spacious hatch/trunk area of my vehicle.
