Hi guys, just wanted to get some opinions, what do you think about 2nd hand G35 coupes? I have the Versa as a daily, but might get something for cruising.

Budget is about $10k, could be more if I traded in the Versa, but I'd only have a lil after loan is paid off. Maybe $2k more... I want something a lil quicker.

My other options are:
Mazda RX-8
Subaru Impreza Hatch
Mistubishi Lancer
Late Model Nissans (240zx/sx, 300zx, etc)

Also, is it worth it to buy a car out of warranty, (which is why I go japanese) for cash, or just upgrade to something new....like the 2013 Altima or Sentra.

I'd go for a G35. I love them. Also, how about an Altima? Or a 350z? My brother has one and they're fun to drive(too small in my opinion).

As for buying out of warranty...I'd make sure its manual and runs good because once you pay and drive off you're S.O.L. if something goes wrong?

I'd shy away from used turbo cars. especially subie or mitsu. People tend to pound on em hard trust me. I was shoppping for an STi and they all seemed abused. The used g35 is probably the best bang for your buck. And if you can afford it try to go 2005+. The little changes made the car much nicer, expecially in coupe.

They are more reliable now. But a rotary is anything but cheap to fix, and they dnt get very good gasp mileage. The rx mazdas are just fun to drive and they pull, the 1.3L in the rx-8 put out around 230hp if i remember right. If your looking for a more well rounded car gas mileage, powerful, and practical go with a g35.

This.

Also, a rotary engine will wear out more over time.

I dont know about Hawaii, but a G35 coupe for 10 grand around here is well worn. But like what they alluded to^^^I'll take a used NA motor over a used turbo, so +1 for used G35 or 350Z
