was this a nissan dealer?
i wouldn't buy it without knowing it worked or they would fix it if it didn't. if they have a garage, why not put it in there for a couple of hours and try it? that would answer the question, at least.

First off. Me personally. I think the convertables are, how should I say? I want a real roof over my head in case something happens to go wrong. God forbid.
You say the selling price is 24K for a 2004 convertible. And 18,000 miles to boot?
Find out what what kind of deal they'll work before you buy it.I bought an "07" with 40 miles on it, only because the dealer had to bring it to my location.I bought it with everything but the GPS for 32K. Neeedless to say, I can't wait to go to work in the morning. Got to love the "Z" no matter what your'e preference is.

I have rocked many rear drive cars to get unstuck but never shifting between 1st to reverse. I have had lots of luck just using momentum in 1st gear (or with auto for that matter). Keep it in first, hit the gas lightly just before slippage, let off so the car rocks back, gas lightly to rock forward, and pretty soon you keep doing this and your momentum will pull you out of most ruts save for deep deep snow or ice pack. Try this and you will also avoid wrecking your manual box.
I think you would be really happy with the 07 VQ motor improvements, it sounds like a real beast! I also think you would like the updated tranny. However the rough and tumble interior will never compare to the 90s 300zx model with its relatively luxurious interior. I would suggest finding a leftover 07 G coupe at a significant discount. Most dealers are discounting those 5 grand or more now! Good luck!

My 2008 Enthusiast is on its way. I spent hours fidddling with the clutch on my '05 until I got it right using gorgeous
DIY instructions on www forums. I'll let you know if they got a decent clutch adjustment onn my 08 if not I can link you to step-by-step posts any idiot could understand. Hell- I did!
#127 of 131 Godzzilla has arrived

Bought an 07 Touring 6sp coupe saturday. Been waiting for it for three weeks. I bought it for 24,000. Miles are a little high, 19k. I had only test driven an 06 auto, and there is no comparison. The extra 23 hp feels like 50 at least. I'd had a camaro ss and this thing will beat it by a little in a straight line and just kill it in curves. I really thought I had a strong car until I climbed into this thing. Pictures of it here: link title">link title

#130 of 131 QUESTION ABOUT STOCK 350Z EXHAUST TOURING EDITION?
Feb 26, 2008 (5:29 am)
I just bought a used 03' touring edition, amazing machine the 350Z is. I bought it from an Acura dealership, a few days ago i was looking at the exhaust pipes and i notice the right pipe is extended a little further than the left pipe i mean at first i thought my eyes were playing tricks on me then i had my friend look and he said the same thing, is it suppose to be like that? b/c before i bought my Z i saw a Z parked and i was checking it out and i noticed it on that Z too, so can anyone tell me are the pipes suppose to be like that? i was shown the carfacts report and my Z hasnt been in any accidents or had any problems whatsoever
if anyone can let me know that would be great!
#131 of 131 Wow ... what a car

I just leased a 2008 Nissan 350Z Touring Convertible. Auto with the 3.5L 6 cylinder engine.
Amazing power and handling. I just got done with a lease of a BMW Z4. The 350Z is a much better car. I love it
