Summary:

A high priced piece of crap!

Faults:

Turbo blew at 80,000 miles.

Water pump went bad.

Radio stopped working.

Aerodynamic fin stopped working.

Master cylinder needed to be replaced.

Lifters needed to be replaced.

Drive-shaft needed to be replaced.

Brakes went.

Exhaust cracked.

And many, many more problems that ran me about $12,000.00 in just 4 and 1/2 years that I owned it.

General Comments:

This car is by far the worst car I have ever owned. It never performed even close to what it was built up to be. My brother's Ford Contour was quicker. Every month something would go wrong with the car and every time, like a dupe, I thought if I spent the money it would be worth it. Wrong! Not only did I spend a fortune on this car, but it wasn't even worth it. The ride was uncomfortable. The performance was about that of a Honda Civic and the speed, well, that was pretty much non-existent. I finally got rid of what was by far the worst decision yet in my life. This car was horrible!! In every way, shape and form a car can be.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I cannot imagine what kind of person it would take to leave a review like this. I have never met any one that has owned this model that would say "it was an expensive piece of crap". You have to expect things to break when you race a vehicle every time you drive it. Your experience with this fine automobile was probably due to lack of driver ability and lack of maintenance. You should probably consider sticking to a Ford Escort.

Summary:

Beautiful car with great performance, I WANT ANOTHER!

Faults:

I had to put a new clutch in because I was a new drive and it had 120,000. It cost about $800... not cheap!

The master cylinder on the clutch was leaking, leaked into the car and made a mess, but oh well. I replaced it myself, had to make a "special tool" wink wink, but the part was only like $70.

The seats were leather, and it was 10 years old so they were tearing. That's expected.

Power antenna was broken when I got it.

And the most major thing was that the engine was missing on a cylinder.. which killed performance. It would have cost a lot to fix, but I bought the $200 valve tool and fixed it myself.

Fast car that looks good, but it is expensive to fix and modify.

General Comments:

I love that car... it was my baby. It was also a rocket and all of the girls loved it, but I had to get a truck. I thought about crying when I sold it, but then I decided to get another one when I had the money to fix it up and get some real good speed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 92 3000gt myself, I was recently advised that I had a chipped or bent vaulve. how difficult would this be to repair myself. I know a fair amount about cars, the part is cheap so I assume that the labor is where the cost is at. can you give me any ideas? I am pretty sure it is an exhaust vaulve?

My clutch on my 92 3000gt just gave out. It smells like it is burning. Do you think This could be something high cost.
