General Comments:

I love my Z.

Here in Finland, I can drive my Z only 3 months in year in summer, if our summer has sunny weather. Sometimes it really makes me so angry, especially when the car stopped working in the middle of the highway, and it was a rainy day.

Because of an oxygen sensor, I did lose a lot on gas money, but no matter, I mean who cares, I am happy with that car. I knew that it would be very expensive car to keep running; I made my choice, and now I feel it.

Working on my Z, I have learned a lot about cars and engines.

I recommend a Z for everyone who dreams about sport cars, but their pocket is not so full of $$ or €€.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Does seem odd that you recommend the car for low cost, bearing in mind it's one of the thirstiest cars ever built by the Japanese.

It's cheaper than a C7 or a Viper. And who ever buys turbo cars or high HP cars and frets over gas? I checked one of my cars for fun and it gets 8 MPG. Factor in the grin factor and it's the best bargain I ever bought.
