Hey, Karens: Dealer called 2wks ago saying the autohauler arrived with chrome silver, charcoal leather, chrome silver, AT, side air bags, splash guards, mats and kickplates 350Z. It was so close to my original order I bought. Cowles Nissan Woodbridge was embarrassed by a comedy of errors trying to order a 2005 for me. Soooo, we struck a good deal for me of $36.5K out the door. Not as good as my 2000 red vette hatchback in any regard, but now I don't have to shift or endure the competition suspension on absolutely lousy No. VA road surfaces. Enjoy ya'll.

Strongly considering buying a 350Z roadster convertable. Have driven the Vette and looked at the Mustang Cobra. Any insights, comments appreciated on which is the best buy for the money. I know the Cobra is best bet for shear power, but quality and endurance are a question. The Vette is better overall but more money?
#17 of 131 2005 Roadster Touring Automatic - WOW!
Oct 07, 2004 (12:07 pm)
Bought a 2005 Roadster yesterday (10/6/04). Went with the Touring edition - Pike's Peak White, Frost leather, Navy top along with automatic with Triptonic +/- shifter. I was very sastified with the dealership (C. Thompson Nissan, Greenwood, South Carolina) and was treated professionally - very happy with "out the door" price.
I must say, this is one nice car. Interior quality has been upgraded substantially - none of that "cheapy" feel or look; materials are quite nice. Have owned a 2001 SLK, 1996 Supra, 1993 RX-7 and I must say, this ZX is my favorite. From the fit/finish to the rich good-looks, down to the pleasant growl at speed (and the unbelievable thumbs-up, questions, not to mention all of the gawkers) - hard to keep that silly grin off of my face.
I will report any quality issues, etc. to you all. In the mean time, drive on...

I have been driving Lexus ES 300's for the past 10 years and have been spoiled by the quality and dealer service. Neverthless, I am considering a new 350Z Touring to try to recapture the excitement of my youth when I had a 1973 240Z. Reading some of the posts here have me scared about the quality of the car.
#19 of 131 350 ZR Fueling Problem
Feb 11, 2005 (10:29 am)
Just bought the new 2005 350ZR. I am really happy with my purchase. I have only one issue with my car. I am having a fueling problem. It is not associated with the fuel guage, but with putting gas in the car. BTW, the gauge on the 2005 reflects the true amount of fuel in the tank, according to my last few fuel ups. Fingers crossed !
The pump overflow is constantly kicking the pump off, regardless of the amount of fuel in the tank. I have tried numerous "positions" of the gas nozzle - no luck. I can put in about 0.08 cents of fuel at a time and the pump will automatically shut off. I have to do this numerous times, until EVENTUALLY, I can fuel the tank normally, at full pump speed. It takes about 10 minutes to fuel up - which is frustrating or when the gas back flows out and all over the rear fender.
Has anyone else experience this. An owner of the Infinity G35 (cousin to the Z), had the same problem, which eventually went away. It is as if the bleeder valve is blocked or needs to be "broken in".

Well after a 15 month delay I finally got my very own Z, everytime I saw the car I would drewl and say I going to get one so I finally did, I was really close to not getting one because I still love the BMW 330Ci... and the Infiniti G-35 .....but I wanted a true Sports car this time. I was going to order a silverstone touring Roadster with the blk/tan ventilated seats. They found one in New Jersey for me but it would have taken a few days.
Well the GM came to me and says hey if I make you a really good deal would you buy this blk on blk 2004 350ZR ... I said depends on the deal. Bottomline he made me an offer I could not refuse, hence I am now a Z owner... I love the car and I love way oter people just get out of the way when they see you Z-ing down the road. The only mods I plan to purchase are: Stillen rear variance, either a wood grain dash kit or stainless steel, Tint my windows and a K&N cold air induction system....

Bought the car new almost two years ago. Only 5,700 miles on it so far, sits in my garage mostly. White exterior, automatic. I like everything about this car. I have had no problems at all, maybe a little streaking on my windows but otherwise nothing else. I love the way it handles and drives, it is awesome to me. I am looking for something else now to get a back seat. Not sure what yet, maybe the G35 or a Lexus IS300. I tested the G35 sedan and coupe before I bought the Z and they didn't thrill me behind the wheel like the Z did but my wife really wants me to get something with a back seat. T.Morris/Ringgold, GA

It's great your experience so far has been positive. But, with only 5,700 miles, the tire issues have not had a chance to surface. Good luck and I hope you continue with your positive experience.

Well, I guess 2 weeks makes the difference. The gas tank is finally working properly and the gauge and the amount of gas in the tank work perfectly.
Love the Z.

With just a little arithmetic, I figure you've spent about $14000 for 5700 miles -- that's pretty pricey riding! Why do you leave it in the garage? Isn't that sort of a waste, or at least very frustrating?
