    How does it handle, drive, etc. Is it fast? Worth the price?

    handles great, awesome driving experience, loves to drink gas/oil, its not slow but could use more torque. I think it was worth it.

    save your money and find a used rx-7. much faster, much bettr handling, much better looking. although they were prone to catching on fire. i heard thats bad for cars.

    Even though I love the 7, I would have to disagree that it's a better car.

    Much better deal in Canada, but you can probably haggle more for them in the States since '04s are still on lots. It was my next car before I decided to buy a place.

    It handles good, has some zip, turns heads, and is fun to drive. What more could one ask for?

    Yeah, you'd be surprised. I'd bet it would give a V8 Mustang a run for it's money for MPG

    Yup - MRSP is right around 350z's in the States, but they're like 6000+ less in Canada.

    Like what?

    I know there's the G35, but that's way too played out here. And the 350Z is a 2seater.
