Default High Mileage 350z's Out There? Im A REAL One!


Hey there! Looked at a few Z forums for high mileage, all topped out around 170k.... well guys, Im at 209k and going stronger than ever! This car has been so good to me, literally has never given me not one problem! Anyone else there thats pretty high up there?

Good to hear that, what year is your Z? Mine is an 06, only has about 70k, it is mostly a weekend/fun car for me. Glad to hear I've got quite a few miles & smiles left to go.

My cars a 2003. Havent replaced a thing, except my thermostat. But that wasnt because I had any troubles...

No bubble to burst here, I just dont consider 150k a milestone lol... Makes me happy to hear others out there climbing their way to 300k!

Added some "perfomance" pieces, (headers, intake, exhaust) but everything else original. Owned the car for years, kept up on maintenance... the only thing *needing* replacing were O2 sensors, tore them driving cause my car is so low.

Btw, stock automatic Z in my Orlando area for sale, 234k miles!!

Nice, I bought mine in '04 and have so far put 120k, I put 2k on it a month driving to and from work and the only thing needing replacing has been a door handle.

Default 173k here

I have 173k on my Z. It's a 2004 and I'm the original owner. I've been putting 20k a year on it for my job for the past 7 years. I've been very diligent with all the maintenance. I'm still afraid the engine parts are going to start breaking down. My window motor went; a few oxygen sensors; my catalytic converter went (good thing it was still under warranty); the oil gauge sensor broke; and maybe a few other things I can't think of at the moment. I still have the original transmission, engine, headlights, suspension, etc. I find it hard to believe that you can put 230k on a car and never have one issue.

I'm only at like 107k but its really great seeing how long lasting these cars are, and how reliable they are.
So far the only thing I've had to replace was a battery and still need a door handle fixed other than that just brakes/oil changes.

But for the z being a sports car it is extremely reliable and honestly more reliable than most other cars period.

I guess I spoke to soon guys. My car started over heating a few weeks ago BUMMER. Ended up being just a bad radiator cap though. Picked one up at Nissan

Than...couple days later- Radiator cracked. Pretty sure it was from all the heat/pressure build up when cap was bad. Simple fix. Runs beautiful again.

You made your 350 into a GTR look-a-like? WTF are you thinking?

My 04 has I think 135k on it.. Last owners may have driven. But I doubt I'll put many miles on it.
