Perfect car for touringCoupe (No Badge) Manual (2009-2022)
I love it.
I bought my 2021 new. I opted for the manual as I prefer the driving style, I live in a rural area so traffic is not an issue for me.
This is not my first Z , I do enjoy the car and despite purchasing it unseen from interstate it did make me smile when I first saw her.
Having owned many performance coupes and muscle cars I feel the 370z is doing very well.
I have had no issues regarding reliability and economy is around 9.6 to 10.5 l/100km.
The ride is firm and solid since the car is no lightweight, it handles beautifully but at th
Perfect for me, doubt I'll ever sell itCoupe NISMO Automatic (2009-2022)
I have previously owned a 240Z and a 300ZXTT and now have a 2019 370Z Nismo, I absolutely love it. I love the way it looks, I love the performance and I absolutely love the handling. Now I also know that this is not to everyone's taste for instance my wife isn't the greatest fan because she says its not the easiest to get in and out of, and I'd have to agree, there's a knack to it and because of its many positive traits I tend to ignore that, besides once you're in , that's it, my wife also says it rides a bit rough, yes compared to her BMW X4... Read moreit is a harsher ride, but then it is a sports car, low to the ground and handles like its on rails, so again, its not something that bothers me. I actually use it as my daily, travelling between the Central Coast and the Northern Beaches for work, some of my work colleagues think I should keep it as a Sunday car, but I reckon you only enjoy it when you drive it so why not drive it as much as you can, of course the one problem with that is it has more stone chips on its nose that it would have if it was a princess only brought out on special occasions. I have thought of what I might replace it with one day, considered an F-Type but the Nismo is even a rarer thing to see on our roads and is much more affordable in every way so I think I'll just keep it. Not for everyone but I love it.
Almost Perfect out of the BoxCoupe (No Badge) Automatic (2009-2022)
I bought the 370Z just over a year ago after lusting after it in the Nissan showroom when it was 2 years old with 7,300km on the clock in cherry red, the update model. First I took a new i30N for a drive but couldn't get that Nissan out of my mind and when I took it for a country test drive I was totally sold. I paid $39,000 on the road which was a lot less than the new i30N and it's a lot more car in every way except practicality of course but my other car solves that problem.
Clearly the 370Z has been built from the ground up as a sports... Read morecar without any compromises and it's been well built too. The interior is a retro class act and the only gripes are the dated bar gauges and lack of a digital speedo. The rear view is fine on the road and rear view camera solves the parking but you need to watch the long low nose and door mirror created blind spots. Out of the box it's pushing the boundaries with big 4 and 2 pot brakes, 19" forged wheels with big tyres that already rub slightly on a full lock. The footprint is also big with those wheels and tyres right at the corners with minimal overhang. The engine is large, strong and sweet willing to rev its heart out. The 7 speed auto does its job well and the paddles take it to a much more immediate shift, especially with some revs on board. Not perfect and I hesitated because I wanted a manual but i've learned to appreciate its virtues. The whole car is strong and capable of handling much more power, especially through the drivetrain so that bodes well for a long trouble free future. Each time I get into it I enjoy the experience, the feeling of being something special that drives within high limits and feels safe and sure footed with big reserves of power.
Perfect all roundCoupe (2009-2022)
I've had this car for a couple of years now. I bought it near new with only about 20000ks on the clock. I haven't had any problems so far and find it very reasonable to maintain price wise for such an amazing car. The drive is awesome, super quick, sticks to the road and has a fantastic sound system. Very sporty and definitely recommend and you want to lift your statusShow details
Back in another Z and couldn't be happierCoupe (No Badge) Manual (2009-2022)
Well, I just couldn't keep away from the Z. I bought another one a year after selling the old one. This one is the 2013 version. Slightly different dash, twin oil coolers and not a lot else. The sat nav is upgradeable on this model. Not so the 2010. I bought a Magma Red car this time. I love the colour. It's very classy.
These cars are not speed machines, but they are quick enough for most people.
I was fortunate enough to take a z with an Armytrix catback on it for a drive and holy snapping duck turds, did this thing move! Or, maybe it just
Love My ZCoupe (2009-2022)
This was my first Z. I wanted a car that had plenty of torque and was fun to drive. The Z was this in spades. It hugs corners at speed and the acceleration is amazing. I always fell like I am hopping into the cockpit of a fighter jet (especially at night as the orange accents on all dials etc all light up) The seat is extremely comfortable. This design and engine has been established for years now and all of the bugs/glitches have well and truly been solved meaning I could relax and enjoy my purchase. The Z is fine on the petrol, similar to my... Read moreMitzi Outlander I was running previously. Obviously if you drive it hard ( and it is exceedingly difficult not to occasionally let it out of its cage, as it is exhilarating) petrol consumption goes up a little. Overall a truly wonderful car which brings me much enjoyment.
Finally found a car I really, really enjoy drivingCoupe (2009-2022)
When I sold my beloved twin turbo RX7 FD, I pined and pined for so long, my hands were tired from pining, and anyway, I was running out of trees to pine. Years went by. I drove mundane car after mundane car. And then, one day, we went to the car dealership and sat in a brand new 370z. Gorgeous, and that new car smell hits you like a lotto windfall. My wife, who sat in the car with me, agreed that it was very nice. But we couldn't afford the 65 grand that they were selling for, so I settled on driving around in...in fact, I can't even remember w... Read morehat I used to drive around it, because it was so forgettable. I think it must have been an old XH Falcon van that I used as a parts chaser while I worked on my 1954 F100 pickup truck (another regrettable sale). And when I sold my beautiful old truck, I started looking around for something nice to drive once more. I knew exactly what I was looking for. A 370z. I bypassed the 350z as I think it is starting to show its age a bit, and next to the 370z, well, let's be honest, it definitely looks dated. Plus, it's slower. And I was never a fan of that plain looking rear end and those long angled rear tail lights. But, hey, this is a review about the 370z. I have never owned a z car before, but I have very vivid memories of taking a 240z for a test drive way back in the early 1980's. This red with a black roofed 240z had just been traded in and was up the back of Giddings' car dealership in Moss Vale. I rocked up. Asked how much. The salesman said "about three grand." In 1980, that was a fair bit of cash. But not a massive lot. I asked if I could take it for a drive and he said "sure, no worries." He added. "Don't flog it, because we don't know much about it." Well, I don't think I flogged it, but I gave it a spirited drive and...well, let me just say I have never forgotten the experience. It was the most fun I have ever had in a car. (Except for that time me and my girlfriend at the time went parking in a quiet spot up Macquarie Pass some years later, but I digress...) This car had a 280c engine; twin webbers and went like a rocket! Years later, when I started spiritedly driving my RX7, I thought back to those times I drove that little Z. (I never bought it, by the way- never had the money) and I don't think my rotary powered beast would have caught that Datsun, to be honest. It was just so fast. So, let's fast forward to 2017. I have just sold my truck and am looking for a z car. I still love the old classic 240z's, but the amount of money people are asking for them is just stupidly ridiculous. I have seen them for 40 grand. Uh, forget it. So, I went looking for a modern version.
pretty goodCoupe (2009-2022)
The car is way to small for a white adult to be honest. the ammount of times i hit my head on the roof and banged my knees was incredible.
Apart from that drives well
and would be worth least half the new price.
So i advise to buy near new
Fuel economy is good.'
Top speed good bit of lag but its not modified yet so
I've already written a review early last year but now that I have driving it for 14 months as one of the first few to purchase I thought this re-review would be highly relevant. A little disappointed but still generally good solid attractive car to own. I love the roaring of sport car engines but this car doesn't produce that but is indeed very noisy as tyres fail to filter out the noise from the road. Even the BOSS surround sound can't filter out the unpleasant sometimes unbearable noise especially when driving on rough freeways. I've had too... Read moreminor crashes like knocking into a wooden pole at a parking lot and even with a minor low speed knock, the plastic bumper snaps off and literally flies out resulting in a rather expensive repair. Manual gear is really clunky and sometimes disengaging one gear to the next requires a bit of uncomforting force. GPS system is a little hard to follow for the first few month until you get used to it and after missing numerous corners and exits. The software has not been updated so driving through the newly constructed freeway, GPS will show you are in the noman's land. Visibility is very poor especially when reversing and although not listed as an option you can tell your Nissan dealer to install one and my car is a proof that it is done despite what you may hear. Having driven for more than a year I am a little disappointed with few things. To be fair it still has many positives. The car is well equipped with a number of gadgets including iPOD connectivity, GPS, 6 stacker CDs etc etc. BOSS was rather a disappointment and the system doesn't even have an equaliser or sound effects and you can't find tune your sound output to the type of music that you hear. But, design is still appealing and something tells me that it would still look vintage good in 10-20 years. Resale value is reasonable and service centre staff is incredibly nice, kind and thorough. Maintenance in terms of patrol is expensive but regular servicing price is surprisingly cheap and boys at the service centre will SMS you to remind service dates and things. Still love the car - that for certain - but 14 months down the track, something tells me I would not be shopping for a 390Z... Despite owning it for 14 months, it still is COOL to drive with people still giving admiring glare as you drive past. Powerful engine. Good suspension. Surprisingly cheap maintenance cost at the Nissan service centre It's very noisy but it's not roaring sport car noise, it's nasty road noise. Plastic bumpers can snap and fly off even with minor knock. Consumes way too much patrol.
This is an awesome car overall with great handeling and styling. Greater value for money than other sports cars with almost all options included as standard.
Great service from Ryde Nissan and the first service was easy.
Awesome car, has all the features found on more expensive cars
Awesome performace with the tiptronic gearbox
Great touch screen Satalite Navagation and audio system, very easy to use.
Awesome looks and styling
The keyless entry feature is easy to use.
A very individual car.
Some blind spots when driving.
Questions & Answers
I love the looks and performance stats on the new 2021. I read that one can feel nearly every pump on the road. My question. Is it really that annoying or managable? I do wish it did have android play.
I wouldn’t know my car is a 2019 370Z which has a 3.7 litre normally aspirated motor the new Z has a 3 litre turbocharged motor. The new Z apparently rides on same wheelbase as my car so there may be some similarities in ride quality. I use my car everyday and I love it but my wife finds the car a bit too bumpy for her liking, yes you really do feel the road but for me that’s the point of a performance car that handles as my NISMO does, but what’s right for me mightn’t be right for you, the only answer is to take one for a test drive.
