    Well it looks like I'm going this weekend to pick up one of these cars. (I'm going to a local automall and they have a Nissan and Hyundai dealer in the same complex) So as the title says, what should I get. They're both in the same price range that I'm looking at and they are both pretty solid and reliable cars it seems. So here I come for advice on my purchase.


    Here are my comparisons, I will be using it as my daily driver and my fun/track car as well.
    Nissan 370z--Base with Sport package
    [​IMG]
    Pros: Faster and more stylish than the Hyundai.
    Cons: Costs 2k more than the Hyundai and the warranty on it isn't as good as the Hyundai's.

    Hyundai Genesis Coupe--3.8L with Track Package
    [​IMG]
    Pros: Cheaper and has a great warranty, plus it has a tiny backseat :mamoru:
    Cons: Slower and it's not as attractive as the Z.

    So what do you think I should get? Give me reasons why and why not.

    I personally would buy the Z simply from a reliability standpoint. I know the Hyundai has a great warranty, but that doesn't mean I want it to be in the shop all the time. I'm not saying it would be, but I'd be WAY more reliant on the Nissan being bulletproof.

    It's a pretty close call for me :o I like the Hyundai's warranty and it's one hell of a car for the 2k less...but the Nissan also has unlimited oil changes and services too since they're at the same dealer :bowrofl:

    one is the best bang for your buck sports car out there, and the other is a midly good first attempt at a sports coupe

    Eh, I'd rather go with new...I'd like to have the peace of mind that nothing should go wrong within the first few months of me owning it.
