So i love the Nissan 350z and it one of my favorite cars
I went to a dodge dealership and look at there used cars and found that they just got a 2007 Pearl White Nissan 350z Enthusiast Roadster
It had only one owner that did a great job taking care of it and it only has 30XXX miles on it so they previous owner did not use it that much.
i have gotten the price down to 17000 before tax and title.
I would just like to know if i should go for this car i buy it.

There is no extra add on it has no navigation, leather seats, or Bose audio but the car is in great condition and everything work great.

Price will fluctuate depending on location. I think 17k is a little high but if it's a clean Z than it'll be worth the extra money.

have you had the car inspected by a 3rd party mechanic? Pay a 3rd party mechanic look it over, test it's compression and do a leak down test, along with all the other things they'd check on a 'used car inspection'.

If it comes out clean than buy it...

Would go with a 350/370z. Small, great handling...if you don't mind carrying only 1 other passenger, it's fun to drive...unique, and fast. Just be careful though... your insurance rate will be sky high.
Didn't appear that he was asking about anything except the 350, and insurance will only be sky high only if he is young - or has a bad driving history. Mine is only around $600 a year for full coverage on an '03, with a couple of speeding tickets on the books over the last 10 years, lol

The 350z is a great car, had a 2007 ..4 years never had any mech. problem..370z is great to ..but .i feel the 350z is a real sports car..over-all....370z is a sports car too looks better but .....the total weight is 3900 pounds a heavy car for only 2 seats...Concerning your insurance, all depends on your driving record...geico gives me the best rate...

Um, the 370 is only slightly heavier than the 350. You are comparing gross weight vs curb weight maybe? Both are around 3250 without load - curb weight.Gross weight is loaded with passengers. the 370 has some nice suspension upgrades and is more plush and of course more power than the older 350's anyway. Comes down to looks and age IMHO. Had my '03 since brand new, looking forward to a 370 come spring.

Ive never owned a 350 but Ive driven a modded one a few times. The car felt better and sounded better than my 370z but than again it was modded. Honestly if you're not into performance or modding than go for a 350 if you want to save money or go for a 370z if you can afford it no problem because it does seem like a big upgrade from a 350z interior. To me its a really hard choice but sometimes I do regret taking a 370 over a 350.

Actually, I never possessed a 350 but I had the opportunity to drive the 350 a few times. The vehicle experienced far better and sounded a lot better than my 370z but than yet again it was actually modded. Honestly if you're not into efficiency or modding than choose a 350 if you would like spend less or take a 370z if you can afford to pay for it no worries since it does seem like a huge update from the 350z indoor. If you ask me its an extremely challenging selection but sometimes I actually do feel sorry about getting a 370 over a 350.

$17000 sounds like a good price for an 07 one owner roadster with 32k from a dealer. Good luck and keep in mind, if the top goes down the price usually goes up.
