The car is fun to drive with a 5 speed manual trans. The car was built in 1994 and is sold in this country in 1995 it is now over 20 years old and still runs great. How ever any one buying one of these will see the maintenance cost is high, ie. clutch, crank shaft seal, timing belt, struts. The parts are not expensive its the labor required to make the repair. All ways keep this in mind when buying a 3000GT if you have the time and the equipment your self to do the work its not bad.
Recently purchased my GT from a second owner changed the timing belt, battery, water pump, alternator, new tires, all fluids changed, tune-up, cleaned and polished inside and out. After all that took "Jade" for a slow spin down by the beach I believe the car received as many looks as some of the other beauties. The Mitsu performance is definitely worth mentioning as well, road hugging, tight steering and ample gas peddle for increased speed above 120 mph. One time good deal but quite refreshing. Excellent driving experience from a truly great automobile. Get one you will love it too.
It's fun to drive, lots of power, good handling , and everything i've expected from a good sports car. As well as minimal comfort and spacing. And no cup holders! I guess i shouldn't be drinking anything in this car and expect not to spill. This monster can zoomm. It takes me to places everyday since the day i bought it 11 years ago. Transmission was rebuilt about 5 yrs ago.
Handling; yes i'm talking about those road corners, curves, zig-zag roads, and rainy days. If you have an aggressive driving style, you will love this car. Perform really in higher speed driving.
Cup holder; i have this problem more often than you think. Especially it is MT.
I remember driving her off the lot 14 years ago and feeling like a million bucks. I still get that feeling today as this car is ageless. The body style is still far ahead of its time. She runs as well today and looks beautiful!. Have had regular maintenance, put on Faulken tires and she purrs. Great gas mileage too. About 29 on the highway. Edmunds has truly misjudged this car. It will be a "collectors car" as there are very few of them around. Still get heads turning and people stopping to look at her. Fabulous acceleration with the "power" button. Beautiful car that still seats 4 people.
This was my dream car ever since the first time I seen it. It's got the looks of an extremely expensive car and its got the speed. It has not disappointed me yet. If you want to get somewhere on time this will get you there.
the body lines, top speed, take off from 40 mph
a 5- speed automatic transmission would have been a great feature for this car
