Love my Z
By Whamel on


1990 Nissan 300ZX GS 2dr Coupe


If you do not have full maintenance
records for it - WALK AWAY! I recently
spent $4000 on engine repairs due
to previous owner neglect. Count on
regular expensive
maint., running exclusively premium
top grade fuel, and NEVER use gas
treatments in this car or you will
destroy the injectors. Prior to buying,
call your local shop and ask them
how much it would cost to replace
the injectors, change the timing belt,
and install a new radiator in a Z -
expect to do all 3 at some point.

Best Features

It corners like a dream, but upgrading the tires and adding tower bars made it even better. My most favorite feature is probably the gas pedal - just slam it down and wave bye-bye to whatever happens to be behind you!

Worst Features

Nissan should blanket replace all fuel injectors in this year and model - failure is too common and extremely expensive! I've found the Z to be unstable in rain. The radiator seems to be slightly weak and is a $700 dealer replacement .
