I so have enjoyed driving this car. It's great for Sunday afternoon spins. It's fast enough but quick in the turns. At this point I have only replaced the #4 injector. I have thought about trading for muscle but can't bring myself to letting go. For the money, it's the best car I've ever owned.
So what if it's not the fastest car
around. It's still the best automotive
design of the past decade. Having
driven this car since new, I can
honestly attest to the amazing
reliability. Only a few problems in
almost eight years. It doesn't cost
any more than your garden variety
Maxima to maintain.
Perfect interior design and layout,
gorgeous bodywork, hard tonneau cover.
Power top, glass rear window with
defrost, cupholders, twin turbo engine.
I bought this car a little less then 3 years ago. I got it for $5000 with 92,000 miles on it. I had it inspected before purchasing and I was told the car was in good shape. I expected to do the usual routine work on it . What I didn't expect was a crack radiator neck, bad knock sensor, and fuel injector replacements shortly after. But, after droping roughly $6,000 more into the car to get it in perfect running condition it has been nothing but pure joy! It now has 120,000 miles on it with a cold air intake, stage 2 racing cluch, rear strut bars, short shifter, and a sound system. It's awesome to drive, easily customizable, and turns heads! If you have some spare cash this is the car for you!
Torque, interior and exterior styling (it's ahead of its time), ENGINE SOUND, ability to be customized, handling and cornering is amazing, low profile and stance.
Don't buy one with high miles if you can avoid it. You may save $ in the short term, but in the long run you will end up replacing a significant amount of parts and the cost will catch up to you. 300zx parts are expensive! Go with high-end aftermarket replacement parts if possible.
This car still has curb appeal 20 years after leaving the factory and sent to the USA, With some simple mods you can get to 400 HP, the stock version is very fast and the 5 speed is good, Anyone interested in this twin turbo model should know that there is a vast network of people who can help you with any problems that may come up.
twinturbo dot net,
Do not waste your time with the NA version, they are a dime a dozen, the real value is with the twin turbo model and the low production numbers of the last 3 years 94-96, I purchased this car 1 year ago with 121K miles and it is very reliable, engine is smooth and maintenance is expensive but needed from time to time, timing belt a must.
