Although it may be good value, high road tax and fuel economy of just 27mpg mean the 370Z is expensive to run and parts such as tyres and brake pads won't be cheap either. On the plus side, Nissan servicing is good value, although the dealers don't have as good a reputation for customer satisfaction as other Japanese manufacturers.
Is it eco friendly?
Few high performance two-seaters are environmentally-friendly and the 370Z is no different. It emits a catastrophic 249g/km of CO2, making it expensive to tax, while averaging just 27mpg. Choosing the automatic sees this improve slightly with CO2 emissions of 247g/km and similar fuel consumption.
Is it reliable?
Nissan has one of the best reputations for reliability around and the 350Z has proven to be extremely durable - proved by the fact it was never the subject of a recall. The engine in the 370Z is a development of that in the 350Z and so should prove extremely reliable.
