1987 Nissan 300ZX GL 3.0 N/A V6 from North America
It's a killer car, but in a good way
The synchros on fifth and reverse let go at about 199000 miles.
The vacuum lines that control the heater core valve are old and cracking, and as a result, only heat comes out unless I tie the valve up with a shoestring.
Because of bad rubber bushings, the rear sub frame clunks sometimes, and the power seats, which also run off of vacuum, don't work because of cracked lines, and the window seals leak.
This car is insanely fun to own, drives through corners like a Porsche, and is just cool.
It gets good gas mileage when you consider it's almost 30 years old and has a big V6. I get thirty to the gallon highway, but that's only if I drive for economy. If I drive the way it wants to be driven, it drops to about 20 - 22.
It doesn't accelerate very quickly, but it stops and corners great, and it even does pretty good in the snow.
The car is very comfortable and the interior is laid out very nicely. The speedo was hard to read at first, because of the fact that instead of going 10, 20, 30, they go 15, 25, 35, but other than that, a very well laid out interior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
