Buying 350z

Hi there, I'm in the market to buy car. Currently I'm driving a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon,but looking to get a 350z. It's been a dream of mine to have one and I'm still in college but got a good job recently that would let me afford one. My only concern is i've heard things about there being transmission issues and problems of that nature and wanted more information if that was a major problem or not before buying one. Just want to make sure I'd be purchasing a good car! If someone could answer that, that'd be great, Thanks!

There's never been a history of transmission issues with the Z33. Being a powerful RWD sportscar with a six-speed tranny means it can be abused, however. The later models (07-08) used a different concentric clutch slave that was not as reliable as the earlier external clutch slave design. Looking for a Z with an established maintenance history is always a plus.

I've had my Z for 4 years now and never encountered any gearbox problems. A few owners have had issues with the synchros between 5th and 6th gear but these are few and far between. A lot of those problems as far as i know are down to very poor maintenance schedules. As with any sports car a service history is always preferable.
