Regular oil changes, valve adjustments, spark plugs, fuses, etc.
This is the best car that I have ever owned, and to be honest, I can afford almost any car on the market.
This car handles better than my 30K dollar BMW Z-3, and is not exactly faster than my 66 Mustang with a built 302, but has superior engineering.
I can keep up with anything on the freeway, even a 50K German car.
The braking is a little bit substandard, but is reasonable.
I got this car with the original mileage and had never previously driven one of these cars, and can only describe it in one word; "FUN". I look for an excuse to drive this car. "Yeah, honey, I would love to go pick up some Tampax for you, but I have to drive 50 miles or so" would be my typical response.
It goes thorough the gears like ripping a silk scarf, all the way up to 130 MPH plus. I took it on a winding country road, and can attest, that if you enjoy driving, this is a great car for you. You can even maintain it yourself as there is no computer to reset when you do an oil change. This car is a work of art, for sure.
The Japanese at one time, really had it down. The car handles like it is on rails, and rips through the five gears. On a country winding road, on the freeway, or racing against someone my daughter's age in a Honda, this car kicks butt.
My car is fully stock, save for the rims, and is absolutely awesome. I have owned many cars and have paid tens of thousands more for inferior vehicles.
I have some guys that will maintain the car, and have been working on Z cars for 30 years. They say that my car should last another 200,000 miles before I have to replace the smooth 2.8 liter motor.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
