Same goes for anyone with a 2000+V6 Honda/Acura with an automatic transmission.

I bought it at a premium from a sh!tty Nissan dealer because it had a "new" engine. That one failed at 18k, I had been taking it for "tests" which they f00ked up for over 2k miles and they said oops outside the laughable 12month 12k warranty (due mostly to their "mistakes")

Nissan NA told me to eat ****, I'll never buy another Nissan

I then to avoid ever having a motor problem again spent way too much building a "bulletproof" NA stroker which ate it's self within 6k. Either due to a poor build by the machine shop or bad tune, I lean to build because the guy that bought the motor said his builder said the crank was not properly set up as well as the cams, detonation was the cause of failure.



I had an 01 CLS. No issues with the trans although I did have a problem with a 98 V6 CL which failed at 32k after telling Acura about it for 2 years (documented) I won in small claims court & got the money I paid to rebuild it back, it then ran fine for 100k+ until it was totaled.

YEah it was my "dream car", however now that I have it. It's lost it's luster. Trade in value is so minimal I will keep it until the wheels fall off.

Coming from an Infiniti G37 sedan and Altima coupe, the 350Z was a true sports coupe with good looks and handling that's within our budget. We looked at total cost of ownership. Gas, insurance and maintenance costs. The 350Z fits that bill very nicely.

As for dream car, the Nissan GT-R would be very nice but insurance and maintenance costs alone are beyond our budget.

I like the Pagani's like the Zonda and the Hurray (hehe) but to be honest they don't look very good. The Aston Martin One77 is probably a car I would drown a bag of cute fluffy bunnies for or push an old lady down the stairs for.

That's one odd way to achieve a dream car..

^^^^That's what I was thinking!!

And personally, I don't think there is a car as sexy as the Cinque. I've always been a fan of that track car style shape. The One Seven Seven is a very beautiful and stunning car, but it is a different genre of car if you know what I mean. I have never been a huge fan of that elegant shape of AM's, but I still can appreciate their beauty!

My Z was an incentive for me to work hard in my early 20's, back then it was worth alot more than it is now

No way in hell would I qualify it as my dream car, it's way too affordable

Not my dream car, i felt in love with the supra once i saw one in 1993, then i felt in love with the r34.. couldnt buy the supra coz i know i would throw all my money on modifying it.. couldnt get r34 either coz its only RHD. then i bought an AT 2006 z in 2010 then sold it and bought 2007 MT.

i dream of keeping the Z and take other cars (Collection) Supra, Silvia, RX7, NSX, MR2 (will get mr2 even if get married) .. am single now.. but i know eventually instead of this imaginary collection i will get married and have kids.

Or I could find a current owner, beat him until he's unconscious and take his car.

Geez dude grow a spine. Go after what you want. If you get married then you'll have to adjust but your already adjusting before it even happens.

only people saying it was their dream car are people who were hashing out puberty while beating off to Tokyo Drift circa 2006
