A true classic sports car
No repairs other than expected wear parts like brakes and timing belt.
What a great sports car was meant to be. The 1995 is my third Z car and a wonderful return to true sports car handling and zip after my 1986 300ZX which was classy, but sluggish.
I purchased this Z used with about 50,000 miles on it and it now has about 90,000. This Z, like all I have had, has been very trouble free. Of course a car with this much power is a tire eater and hard composition tires just won't work. I have had very good performance from the old Bridgestone Potenza RE71's when they were available and now I am riding on Kumho Ecsta Supras that have excellent traction and handling. I do not yet know if they will get more than the 14,000-15,000 miles that I usually get on Z tires, but am hoping.
I did have to replace the clutch cylinders and timing belt/water pump, but I consider these to be normal wear and tear.
If you want a sports car that you can depend on and which will drive and look like a dream I would definitely recommend a Z, especially the 1995, 1996 300ZX with or without the Turbo. As for me, when this one is finished with me I will most definitely be purchasing a 350ZX.
Thank you Nissan, thank you.
