Wayne Cunningham reviews cars and writes about automotive technology for CNET's Roadshow. Prior to the automotive beat, he covered spyware, Web building technologies, and computer hardware. He began covering technology and the Web in 1994 as an editor of The Net magazine.
The 2010 370Z is little changed from the 2009 version we reviewed earlier, but Nissan equipped the latest car they sent us with an automatic transmission. On first inspection, we were disappointed. But this transmission showed a couple of interesting features, so we took it out with an open mind.
Besides being an excellent sports car, Nissan offers a solid suite of cabin tech for the car. Unfortunately, ours wasn't optioned with the Technology package, and we were left with a stock stereo and no iPod support. It's like Nissan was challenging us to not like the 370Z.
