The 2008 Nissan 350Z earns good crash test scores and has a fairly solid array of standard safety equipment.

Crash ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are mostly four stars for front and side impacts in the 350Z; Nissan does get a five-star rating for passenger side impact.

Anti-lock brakes and tire pressure monitors are standard across the 2008 Nissan 350Z lineup, with front-side and side-curtain airbags also standard on the coupe. Side airbags are standard on the roadster.

Stability control is available on the 350Z; Nissan only makes it standard on the Grand Touring model with a standard transmission, Cars.com reports.

The 2008 Nissan 350Z’s shape does cause some problems with visibility. “Around town, rearward visibility is poor,” according to Edmunds.

Conclusion

The 2008 Nissan 350Z gets good crash test ratings, but stability control is an option.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
