Buying a 370Z

4 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi all I’m 23 years old living in Melbourne, Victoria and am looking at buying my first 370z.


a few questions I have is what should I be looking for in a clean 370z is there any problems I should be looking for (looking at a 2015 with 18,000km in white automatic) as I will be using this car as a daily and in terms of insurance which is the cheapest and best for cover I will be putting it under my dads name and me as a nominated driver for cheaper rates.


Thanks for reading, happy to be joining the Nissan gang.

Hi Tini,

From owing my 370Z and doing lots of reading they really are quite a robust and reliable car. There were issues with steering lock problems but that was in earlier models, 2009-2012 so wont effect you. Some problems with the CSC's on the manuals but again wont effect you. Your buying low k's so that's good. My two points would simply be to ensure that the car has been correctly serviced and I would recommend buying a stock standard car, one with no modifications whatsoever.

The Zeds are a great car with lots of heritage so buy one and enjoy, you wont regret it :D

Being 20 when i got my Z. I did loose my license so that definetly doesnt help my case even now 2 years later. Insurance wise I have done the same as you and gone with APIA (yes my dad is over 50 so it helps). In terms of maintenance, the platform is quite solid. The Americans complain about alot cause they expect alot from nothing. Go into the car with an open mind and you’ll love it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    • Recently purchased a 370Z have some questions
      By andrewfranze9991 · Posted
      Hi guys recently purchased a 2010 370Z absolutely love the car, but run into a couple things I need answers for. 1. The car come with a quick release steering wheel and because the wheel is not factory the vdc, slip, abs and airbag light is on. Is there anyway I can sort this out I want vdc on when normal driving? 2. Because of the issue in the first question I attempted to swap the factory steering wheel over. ( was tuning the wheels a fair bit while the car was off ) anway when I turned the car back on the power steering made a grinding noise, and feels very heavy ever since, seems to get heavy after hard driving. And my last question is the clutch, I’m not sure if it how it is but seems very fragile, for example a couple clutch kicks in 2nd gear it will just slip instead of grabbing not sure if all the clutches are weak like that. But yeah if anyone can help me out on some of this questions would be appreciated cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      Holy thread revival batman but it's not just about offset, it's about x-factor. 350Z's with Brembo brakes need wheels with a minimum 55mm brake x-factor to clear
