As of 2009 replacement parts are becoming next to impossible, electronic part failure may mean weeks with out a running vehicle. I purchased mine new in 1991 and loved it. But like having an elderly dog it comes time to put it down. "was" a great car.... If your looking at picking one up cheap, there's a reason its a good deal, you will be forking over money to your mechanic hand over fist.
Sporty, zippy car. It's been very reliable for me and still running strong at 184,000 mi. Standard timing belt issues -- I didn't change at 75k when my mechanic told me to change and spent $1800 for my stupidity. At this age, finding a good source of used parts is key, as you will need to replace them.
I Really enjoy this car, its not my
280zx but I enjoy it. great handles
great, seats comfortable on the
highway, gas mileage is ok. if you buy
one of these things and it has less
than 100k on it change the timing belt
unless you have documented proof it has
been done! you will be sorry if you
