Summary:

AMAZING! Possibly one of the best cars ever made

Faults:

A little wear on the seats is all I could think of!

General Comments:

Car is absolutely amazing!! She left me last week.. all I can really say is you don't know what you got until it's gone.

The car did everything soo perfect and precise, it was ridiculous. I truly think this car was built too good.

I heard all those rumours of how unreliable they were and such, but that was not the case at all! Obviously when you thrash around a turbo charged car.. you can't expect it to last more than 150-195k. Anyway.. it was between this or a skyline.. and since the GTO had so little kms on it.. I decided to buy it. The car was almost mint when I got it, ran amazing..

The bad: EVERYONE stares at you driving this car.. I live in Canada, so RHD is rare for 1.. and #2 this car just looks so goood! I had a front skirt on it to.. and just wow.. looks like a million dollars. So when you wanna just go to the store and not be bothered.. it's not gonna happen. EVERY time I went out.. not exaggerating this either. EVERY TIME! Someone would say WOW what a nice car, blah blah blah.. that's amazing soo nice.. people just drooled over this car!! And constantly stare at you in it. Haha it was nice.. but after awhile it got very annoying.

I must have hit the curb like 8 times in this car.. and no problems at all.

In, conclusion the car is just insane bargain for your money.. it may not be as fast as a Skyline.. but it's very close, you couldn't even tell the difference.. and maybe handles a little under a Skyline.. but it looks sooo much better!!

The car beat everything I raced it against! You name it.. I beat it. The car can take corners like nothing.. It took me a long time to get this car unstuck on the road.. and even when you do it.. it comes right back to ya like nothing happened at all. 10 out of 10 for this beauty..

I could go on for days talking about how good this car is, but I won't. Just go try one for yourself.. you won't be disappointed! But make sure you have money in case something does go wrong! Maybe I was just lucky! ;)

UPDATE!: Bought a 300ZX.. it's funner.. but you don't get the looks the 3000GT did.. and it's not as easy to drive.. The 3000GT was soo good a monkey could get in and drive that thing like a pro.. 300ZX I'm really struggling with grip to the road. Launches in the 3000GT were effortless and jaw dropping.. 300ZX = lots of wheel spin..

I love both cars.. but the 3000GT was just soo easy to drive. Power.. both are BPU and seem about the same.. can't even tell the difference.. 3000GT you could be driving 100 and it seems like you're doing 40.. 300ZX you do 40 and it seems like 100..

Like I said.. 300ZX you get thrills cheaper and easier.. but if you're a serious driver.. a 3000GT is where your money should be!

Summary:

This car was engineered to last

Faults:

The car has been perfect. Outside of routine oil changes and flushing the anti-freeze, the car has performed flawlessly for a 17 year car that is just driven sparingly. Best auto I have ever owned, and I have owned quite a few.

General Comments:

Handles as well if not better than some of the Corvette's I have owned.

Gut wrenching acceleration.

Gas mileage is outstanding.

Climate control system is terrific.

Undercarriage of car to this day is flawless.

Every control and mechanism on this car still works perfectly.

Car is engineered like no other. Not a rattle or squeak to be found.

Just awesome!!!
