Expert Quotes:

Around town, rearward visibility is poor
Edmunds

Five stars for passenger side impact; four stars on all other tests
NHTSA




The 2009 Nissan 350Z offers a variety of standard safety features while earning good crash-test scores.

The 2009 Nissan 350Z earned a five-star rating for passenger side impact, and mostly four stars for front and side impacts in crash ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Standard across the 2009 Nissan 350Z lineup are anti-lock brakes and tire pressure monitors, with front-side and side-curtain airbags also standard on the coupe. Side airbags are standard on the roadster.

Stability control is standard on only the Grand Touring model with a standard transmission, Cars.com reports. The 2009 Nissan 350Z’s shape does cause some problems with visibility. “Around town, rearward visibility is poor,” according to Edmunds—an observation that TheCarConnection.com confirms is a frustration with the convertible top up during parallel parking or gridlocked city driving.

Conclusion

No standard stability control and difficult visibility hampers an otherwise positive safety impression for the 2009 Nissan 350Z.

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.
