After buying this car I realized it was one of those cars the dealer patches up just to get off the lot. The instrument cluster had been swapped out which means the car likely had higher miles than stated. The transmission didn't shift into overdrive which I never did resolve. After a few weeks of driving it the upper rear shock mount broke. So I fixed those things and traded it in on something else.
Stylish exterior, powerful motor.
Just find a better one than I did. It may have only had one owner but I think they beat the poor thing up mechanically.
Bought it new, now has 140k miles. Live in the DC area, so I needed a car with a little "zing" to get off and on the beltway. Have only replaced the O2 sensor. Reliable, responsive, good stereo. Everything still works (amazing with 3 teens sharing. Nothing has broken, though showing wear on the outside edge of drivers seat.
The GTZ is my third car, I am only 18
years old. It is next to an BMW on
looks and interior, but lacks the kick
and power of a BMW. I have a GTZ,
which has no different engine than the
V6 ES, just a sport suspension and
other options included. I love the
car, but if you are looking for
something fast, you're looking in the
wrong place. Awesome sound system and
great for picking up a date!
Sounds system. 5 front speakers. ALL
More horsepower and definately more low
end torque. Terrible off the start,
hard to even peel out, also a button to
turn the traction control off!
