I have owned my VR4 for longer than any other vehicle I have owned, and for good reason. It has been simply the most enjoyable car I have owned. These cars are very relieable you just have to do your homework and keep some problem spots in check. The performance is great stock but not mindblowing. But with any car with turbos and AWD super car performace is easily within reach for every budget. And considering what these cars sell for it should be considered a steal. Which is the only real problem they have, the resale values dont represent the value accurately. And dont expect to pay the prices edmunds gives, you will pay at least $5000 for a high mileage VR4 that will need some TLC.

I purchased my 92 3000gt with a tired motor and auto trans. The car in stock form is a pleasure to drive sticks to the road like glue, has great acceleration but does have a reputation for expensive repairs like main bearings spinning and at problems. I had my motor completely rebuilt to a 400 hp single turbo setup and have a 5 speed also and now I wouldn't want any other sports car more than my 3000gt she is a beast and a beautiful car way ahead of its time. These cars were called the poor man's Ferrari when they were introduced in 1991 and there are still many on the road today although most have been modded .

I have owned a 92 3000gt sl (red with black and grey interiror) for a little over one year, Best car I have ever owned. My car has almost 200,000 miles on it and it runs perfectly. I had to replace a few parts along the way (of course). It's fast enough to beat a lot of others out there, plus with the 3000 you can do it in style. This car will be a classic in years to come.

Most powerful car I have ever owned. The AWD really made this car awesome. Its cornering is great and it stops from ridiculous speeds in no time. I have had many realiability issues with the car. Bought the car with 79,000 miles on it and 10,000 miles later the main bearings gave out. This is not a cheap repair. Also replaced the transmission which had failing synchros (both common problems in these cars). Replaced the exhaust from the downpipe back. Overall I would buy another one, but just be careful what you are looking at.
I'm sure this has been discussed, but why had Mitsubishi decided to only puit the SOHC V6 in the car as opposed to their DOHC 24V V6 that last saw a home in the engine bays of 3000GTs and Stealths? T...
