I was wondering what I should look for in the way of problems? The car is an auto, wanted a stick but the GF can't drive one. I love the way these cars sounds and it looks like them perform pretty decent. I'm not looking for a rocketship. I just want a good running, sounding and reliable car. I am getting rid of my 03 Dodge Ram 2500 w/ the Cummins in it for something like this. Please tell me the things I should look for. I'm not too sure of the miles as the lot was closed, thats the best time to look. No pain in the ass salesman following you around. I really do appreciate any help you guys can throw my way.

one thing that i always check is to see if it has been modded before. Was it turboed or SC? You could always get a compression test done just to be safe or do it yourself. Also do the norm of running a car fax but i would also check the VIN just to make sure it wasn't in an accident. I had a car that had a clean car fax but had diff quarter panel VIN numbers.

Thanks JTS, I looked it over real good and the right qtr has some poor body work done to it. I should know, I work for a bodyshop that fixes nothing but highline cars. I was just wondering if there are some problem areas for these cars. I have heard nothing but great things about the G35 and 350Z's.

I can't think of anything wrong with the G. It's a great car, and I also like the sound. Depending on the mileage, I would probably look into the tranny and change the fluid, ask about the rotors and pads to see if they're new, find out about the previous owner if possible. Hopefully, it didn't get trashed by a frisky driver.
