1988 Nissan 300ZX 2+2 Targa 3.0 V6 non-turbo


A great classic sports car


Battery and front tyres replaced at purchase (free of charge).

Alternator went at 123500km. (repair bill 230 Euro's)

Minor electrical problems like a non functioning interior light, volt meter and an on/off cruise control.

Muffler needs replacement.

General Comments:

The car is very comfortable for an '88 sports car.

Paint work and interior are almost like new.

Performance and road holding are beyond expectations. Gti's and smaller BMW's are easily beaten. However, be careful with the throttle on wet roads!

Parts (and repairs) are unfortunately (very) expensive and difficult to obtain.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1992 Nissan 300ZX NA (non Turbo) 3.0L 24v


Minor things like tires, brake-pads and exhaust.

Alternator went at 57000 miles (I heard this is a common failure).

Timing belt needs to be replaced soon (at 60000 miles), which is expensive.

General Comments:

This car is truly fantastic, it looks very good and it drives very nice also.

The 300ZX NA is not as quick and powerful as a Twin Turbo, but is still very fast.

I can highly recommend this car.

Note: The only problem is to find a good mechanic who knows these cars inside out... most Nissan dealerships seem to be very incompetent at servicing these beauties (this is also the case for the Twin Turbo) and parts are expensive.

I recently purchased a 92 300ZX Turbo. Haven't checked gas mileage. If your looking for good gas mileage this isn't the car to buy. I've always wanted one of these beauties, but since I had never driven one I was doubtful. It is fast. I only drive it in nice weather. It has some problems. Heater doesn't work properly and radio cuts out when you hit a bump, but, these are minor. Love my Z!
