Hey guys, I'm new here. I have been seriously considering getting a new car and have now almost for sure decided that it will be the 350z. Granted, I am planning to get it in 1 to 2 years, I can start looking now, and if I find something good, you never know.
So my question is, what year 350z is the best? I've looked all around google and other forums, and many of the questions are either unanswered, or old. My budget will be around 15-20 grand (hopefully that's realistic, I'm looking around now and finding 2006/7's for 20-25, so hopefully in one to 2 years the price will go down around that range.
I've heard there is feathering problems in the 03/04's, and engine problems with the 'rev-up engine' years. Before, I was leaning towards the 2006, but then found out that the vq35de was replaced by the vq35hr one year later, which = more horsepower and torque. This obviously appeals to me
, but would it be wise buying the 2007 with the engine having it's first year in the 350z? I've been checking out those sites that tally recalls and complaints and have seen a lot for the 2007 powertrain...
So, to conclude, I am leaning towards a 350z (manual), with the best power, handling, and reliability. Hope you guys can point me in the right direction! Thanks!
