Pros:

attractive, fun to drive, reliable

Cons:

the gas tank not filling up easily, bad visibility in the back

Review:

when I was looking to buy a car I test drove the; Mazda RX8, Audi TT, and a Acura RSX S. The Mazda was too gerky, the Audi was always broken, and the Acura was too slow, so I arrived with the 350Z.
This is my first car and I'm really happy with it, but I do agree with some of the complaints some people have. The gas tank not filling up easily made my first experience at the gas station a long, amusing one. I still get made fun of for not "knowing how to get gas."
Overall, the 350Z is a great car and reliable.

2006 350Zs with 6-Speed Man Consume Oil

Pros:

Nice handling, power, and appearance

Cons:

Poor manufacturer support.

Review:

Beware of the 2006 350Z with the 6-speed manual transmission - the 300Hp, so called "Rev Up" motor. They have an oil consumption problem not found in the 2005 283HP or the 2007 306Hp versions of the engine. Nissan is not addressing this issue by saying "the car using 2+ qts in 3,000 miles is normal and within spec."

OIL CONSUMPTION

Review:

If you own a 2006 6MT, check your oil NOW! I changed my oil and 3000 miles later, checked it again and it was 3 3/4 quarts low. Yes, it was full 3000 miles prior to that and there is now signs of visible leaks. Where's the oil? Seems there is a design problem with the VVT on manual transmissions and allowing too much oil to pass thru the valve guides. What is Nissan going to do about this? No TSB or recalls to this date.

Pros:

Looks, comfort, fit and finish.

Cons:

Gas tank doesn't fill up (shuts off the auto-off on the fuel pumps at the gas station), not a lot of storage, my wife drives it more than I do.

Review:

I bought a 2006 Z when my Subaru STi blew its motor. The Z does not stand up to the performance of the Subaru, but it's a more refined car in every way for daily driving. The Subaru is a race car for the street, where the Z is a street car that could be modded to race. It's better for daily life, although I miss the trunk space and 4 doors every now and then. The only complaint I have is that every now and then the fuel tank is hard to fill. There's a problem with the venting that supposedly got fixed in 06, but it's still a problem. The dealer conducted the TSB on it and didn't fix it. Then they replaced the fuel tank and it's still a problem - but not to the point I want to jump off a cliff...yet. Otherwise, great car!

Pros:

Bi-xenon headlights (amazing) no fogs needed.
Lots of gauges and sensors for safety.
Rock solid in the corners.

Cons:

Tight storage space requires planning.
With original tires, worthless in snow & ice.
Takes 3 months if ordering one to specs.

Review:

I love the looks but driving it on winding roads is the most amazing thing about it. With 15,000 miles on it the tires are wearing well(no feathering) and the transmission and clutch seem perfect. No defects, but it does seem to be going through about a quart of oil every 2000 miles. That's too much for me, but not alarming. It may be correlated with hard driving. No leaks nor blackening of exhaust pipes. Tight storage space but lots of nooks, crannies and compartments.
