1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo 3.0L TT from North America
They stopped making it for a reason
The Turbo died at around 93k, it was a very expensive fix, which came out to be around $3000. They say the Turbo lasts for 70-80k.
Crappy wheel bearings have hit ABS on my car, $100 fix.
Did the Camshaft Timing belt at 70,000.
After 65,000 miles, the car just starts going down hill right away. Even for the later years.
All in all, the car was great when it was young. A popular magazine once said "buy this car for the first 65,000 miles, then get rid of it".
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You are such a typical American. A sophisticated, high performance car is going to need regular and expensive maintenance if it is going to last the distance. If you are after a place to consume McDonald's while driving down the Interstate, that you can thrash and neglect, buy a Lincon Navigator, or something equally as hideous. The Fairlady Z was not intended as just a suburban hack.
