I have a 2001 Maxima I plan to sell (original owner, 25k miles) and will look to purchase either a 94-96 300ZX or 2004-2007 350Z. Can you provide your comments on reliability with these two models, as well as if any one year fairs better? Thanks!

I have no data on the earlier model, but people have told me that they, and especially the TT, can be a bit troublesome. Then again, any 12+ year-old car will require upkeep. Owners of the 2003-2005 have been reporting few repairs on my survey. The 2004 and 2005 appear to have fewer problems than the 2003, but even the 2003 is better than average.

Problem is, we still need more participants to provide precise results for the Z. Anyone who can spare a minute or two four time a year can find the details here:

Nissan 350Z dragster hits 60 mph in 1.2 seconds i found this title article on: Auto Short News http://www.autoshortnews.com/p...an-2/ This is the World’s Fastest Nissan? Pro Class drag racer built using Nissan’s 3.5-liter VQ six-cylinder engine borrowed from a 350Z, sending nearly 1,900 horsepower to the rear wheels… yes, really.

We have updated results for the 350Z to include owner experiences through June 2009. In terms of successful repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2005: 48

2004: 32

2003: 41

All are better than average. Sample sizes small for the 2004 and 2005, good for the 2003.

A big thanks, once again, to this forum and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in November and February.

With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years. We'd especially like to have a result for the new 370Z--many owners here? We need your help.

Just enhanced the related repair history survey so that it can (optionally) be used as a personal car maintenance record.

As always, more participants would be helpful. Updated Car Reliability Survey results in May, with a preview for participants in mid-April.

2011 370Z/ One month old. No problems at all except a noise coming from the right rear over bumps.

We've updated our reliability stats for the Z to include owner experiences through September 30, 2014.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2009 370Z: 23, low, small sample size
2008 350Z: 0, low, very small sample size
2007 350Z: 23, low, very small sample size
2006 350Z: 24, low, very small sample size
2005 350Z: 31, low, very small sample size
2004 350Z: 14, low, small sample size
2003 350Z: 84, moderate

Additional participants always helpful (especially if you see "small sample size" next to the year, or no stat at all).

To view the repairs behind these numbers, check the stats for other cars, and sign up to help improve this information (next update in February):
