1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL from North America - Comments

Dude, kudos to the part about the car being like a high school dream-girl... problem is, I gotta find a way to afford both the car and the girl... ha ha, hope you had some good times with the gt!

I'm about to get a 1992 3000gt as my first car I've always liked the look of it I can't wait to drive it.

14th Jan 2006, 18:47

I am seriously thinking of getting a 3000GT next month. Is there anyone out here who can honestly give me some tips as to what to look out for when buying one? Vital things to have on your check list when test driving or viewing one?

To the last two people that left comments, I want to say contragulations to you both and hope the two of you find the one that is perfect for you.

To the latter of the two comments, I can honestly say there is no way to know if the car is going to be ultra-expensive to maintain. You have to find one that you like well enough that you wouldn't mind spending a few hundred dollars extra every month to maintain. Sometines you may have to pay $1000 for something you have no way of predicting.

If your thinking reliability, get yourself a Civic. If you're thinking exotic models, Cristal Bottles, and crazy nights in Vegas pick up the GT...it'll change your life.

Hey I'm thinking about getting one. 1992 with 98,000 on it... loose shifter, ECS disconnected and stuck ABS light for 4,200 and redone trans 8k miles ago. It looks amazing in and out and has some after market stuff added. WOrth it? My e-mail is reodoc1@yahoo.com. How long do these cars last usually?

Man the 3000gt is really a beautiful machine, but right now my baby is sick because she is having a CV joint problem and I haven't been able to find the damn part, if somebody can give me some advise or info on where to find the part I would really be thankful.

I just bought a 1993 3000gt a few weeks ago. I love it, but does any one know what the sport and tour switch does? And does anyone have extra rims and tires for sale that are not stock.

22nd Jun 2007, 06:35

That switch adjusts the suspension on your vehicle.

23rd Jun 2007, 23:47

So which one is which. and which on is better to keep it on, and how do you know if it working cause, no lights show up on mine.

24th Jun 2007, 13:14

Do you think this is a good deal?

1993 3000gt base or SL. I don't know which one it is. How do you know the difference?

The interior is in perfect condition, and the body in pretty good condition, but some scratches.

For 1100 dollars, is that worth it?

How come my battery doesn't stay charged? I turn off my car and it won't start back up. Does anyone know how to fix that?

14th Jul 2007, 14:43

What noone talks on this thing anymore.

7th Aug 2007, 13:44

To the poster above, check your fuses; specifically the ones on the battery terminal.

I found a 1992 300GT SL. It has a a 1996 engine with 50k miles and a new transmission. Its $4400 dollars. Any1 think I should buy it?

5th Sep 2007, 15:32

I wrecked my 3000GT. Does anyone have the front left and the front right fender? Or a front bumper? Or pop up lights? Or, alternatively, can I do a conversion to the flat lights?

11th Sep 2007, 22:26

Firstly, don't buy any car with a "new motor" in it. The car is worth more with matching numbers.

Secondly, you can do a 95-99 conversion if you want, but they get to be a pain with wiring and whatnot.

Thirdly, search 3si.org or 3sx.com for parts.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to find a used power antenna for a 1994 3000GT SL. I have tried purchasing a OME antenna, but it would have to be rewired. I have called local junk yards without any luck so far. Dealer can order, but cost is $400.00. Please let me know.

16th Dec 2007, 01:51

I'm sick to my stomach. I just bought a 92 3000GT SL "white" 5 speed for about 3300 bucks. 110,000 miles and the body is in real good shape. I just got back in contact with an old friend of mine who told me he had a 92 3000GT SL "white" 5 speed, but he bent the rods. He gave the car to a junk yard one week before I saw him. Can you believe that? Think of all the spare parts I could have had. I feel like throwing up.

I want to buy the only 3000gt in my city. It's a 1992 standard with 180,000 miles on it. It's red with original paint, and I'm going to pay 3700 bucks for it. I know it's a little expensive, but keep in mind that I'm writing from Mexico, and these cars were not sold in my country, and almost no one knows what kind of car it is, except for me and a few others, so right here it's like an exotic car. The only thing I'm concerned about it's that I've been reading horror tales about the tranny and some other parts, and it's going to be very difficult for me to find parts to fix it once it starts to give me problems, which I'm sure it's going to happen sooner or later. Anyway, I don't care about these tales, because I'm in love with the car and right now it's running great! My wife doesn't want me to buy it, but she's happy with her 2008 Honda Accord and and I want to be happy with my 3000 gt, even if it's 16 years old! Any advice about where to find parts for this car? You know, just in case...

I have a 93 3000GT SL. It's kind of hard finding parts for these cars, and when you do find them, it's expensive.

As for me, I love this car; the speed, the style, and basically everything about it.

Before buying a 3000GT, ask yourself these questions.... Do you love this car?... are you will to spend a lot of money if anything goes wrong?... are you willing to put up with small back seat space? If your answers are no, then you should run away from buying.

It's expensive to maintain, especially if you are not mechanically skilled. You can find some new and used parts on eBay.com, craigslist.org, junkyards and 3si.org.

It's definitely worth buying if you are looking for speed and luxury.

I'm curious as to if people still come back to read these comments after all these years but I've read this one when I bought my first car, a white 95 3000gt SL, I too have since bought a 2007 Toyota Camry which is faster (V6 270hp), more roomy and practical with 4 doors, cheaper on gas and runs on regular fuel.

I can't say enough about the 3000gt though, I still have her despite very very minor problems. What the original reviewer said about the 3000gt being the girl you always think and dream about, it can't be more true in my opinion.

10th Aug 2008, 01:07

Hey I am looking to buy a 1992 3000GT with a used engine with 75k and a newer tranny with 35k for 4200$. It has a lot of new parts put in like spark plugs, water pump and all the usuals. It has a little body damage on left side, not much, but just a little. But does anyone have advice for me on what to look at or any other useful information?

25th Feb 2009, 20:18

For the longest time I've wanted a 3000GT. And finally that I can afford one.

I have one problem; the only one that is in my price range is a 93. The body and interior are in great shape, but it has 200,000 miles. They're asking 3500 for it. Is this a good deal and/or worth handling?

24th Jun 2010, 14:09

I bought a 1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT in February down in AZ and love the car.

Unfortunately it has been stalling out while being driven. The power/economy light has been on since I bought it. The light went off a week ago. The stalling problem ensued.

I took it into a dealership a week ago, and they said the stalling prob was fixed. 1 week later it's back.

There is a clicking coming from the center counsel in the area of the power/econ switch right as it dies.

Does anyone know if the switch is the problem?

I'm 50 plus miles from the nearest dealership with a stalling car.

Please help me with your knowledge.

I'm also having a little CV trouble. Trying to get the old one out to replace it is difficult. Any tips on getting it to come out of the transmission on the passenger's side would be greatly appreciated.
