I owned a '01 ZTS for one year, and
liked it so much I traded up for an
'03 ZTS w/automatic, totally loaded.
The driving dynamics are incredible.
In an attempt to
become more minimal, I just sold
my '96 Porsche 911 and '01 Mercedes
SLK this past year, so have some
experience with nice cars. Of course
the ZTS is not a 911 or SLK, but I
don't feel like I stepped down from
Cindy Crawford to Hillary Clinton.
Still have long-term reliability
concerns. Would like to think I got a
good deal: Every-option ZTS, including
Centential Package, with an extended 2
year b-to-b for an out-the-door price
Outward view; handling (the way it
corners, turns, handles bumps, and
just plain feels); appearance;
practical but sexy; price
More cushy leather seats; seats that
tilt; more power; assurrance that
reliability has improved.
