Just a heads up - these cars do have independent rear suspension with CV joints; that's part of the reason they can be so heavy, and still handle OK.

Nissan could have made this car so much better
High beam switch failed twice.
Had to replace rack n pinion.
Window seals have become unglued.
Exhaust system rusted out.
Mass air flow sensor went out at 60k.
I've owned several 300ZX's. They all have a lot of common problems, but the engines are bulletproof. I've never had a major problem with the engine on any of them. If you take care of them they'll always bring you home. Great for performance, however, pricey on maintenance. Good base car with lots of potential and a lot of power if tuned correctly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

1985 Nissan 300ZX 3.0 V6 from North America
Replaced the clutch at 135,000 miles.
Air conditioning needs recharging.
Rear right port window was resealed. Which I was able to do myself, cheap.
Little things were replaced. For example, tires, distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs, ignition wires, battery, and all filters.
Windows had to be tinted from light carpet damage in the rear compartment of the vehicle from the heat.
These cars are one of the best cars I've ever owned, and driven. They are by far one of the fastest, and most reliable also. If they have been taken care of and are continued to be taken care of they will last a very long time, as will their performance. I love the body style, and the interior styling also. Nissan did a great job with these cars. In my personal opinion, if you are able to get a hold of one of these cars, or already have one, in good condition, I would recommend keeping it. They are great cars to either restore or just to have.
