Summary:

Superb supercar

Faults:

Simple everyday problems:

Fuse blown on the cigarette lighter.

Headlamp bulb replacement.

General Comments:

You feel a sense of pride when you see your Nissan ZX parked next to a normal car. Its low curving body and wide wheel arches make heads turn.

It has the power to beat a Porche 911 and the cockpit noise hardly changes through the revs.

Very comfortable seats. The drivers being electric allowing you to move the seat without having to shift your weight about.

The air conditioning is a godsend on a hot day. You can either have the T-Top off, or leave it on and let the air conditioning do the job.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

General Comments:

I really like this car. It will out-run just about anything on the road. Corners really well. Fun to drive car. Turns heads. Everybody wants a ride.

It is in immaculate condition. Great car considering that I am 16 years old and it is my first car.

What sort of fool parents allow a 16 year old to drive a 3litre twin turbo!!! That's one of the most stupid things I've ever heard of.

^^ Haha.. Just hope that those teenagers don't get a TT 300zx =P.

300ZX are not the quickest cars on the road, I had one next to a Stealth R/T TT and the Stealth blew it away. No Upgrades to either.

30th Dec 2005, 10:38

300 will kill a stealth. Supra will kill them all.

Just joking they are all fast cars for a six.

I beat the 2+2 version N/A version in my Pontiac Grand PRix GT. although a supra would beat my car easily I don't think a stealth could if my car was the gtp. which has the supercharger on it.

The N/A 300zx has 222HP stock not 200HP. The 300zxTT has 300HP stock, add a couple bolt on's and now your up to around 350HP.

I own a stock 1991 300zx 2+2 Non Turbo, and even if a Supra, GTP, and a Stealth beat a zx like mine, which they very well could, I would still rather drive a z anyday. The lines out surpass any of the others.
