1988 Nissan Skyline R31 3.0L from Australia and New Zealand
A quality vehicle for a cheap price
After a years of towing from the previous owner, the diff has starting making a clunking sound after a gear change, and sometimes when I take my foot off the accelerator.
The window seal in the back left window has broken.
The odometer has stopped working.
The dash lights are starting to die.
This car is perfect for a first car owner.
The steering is almost perfect.
It has incredible speed, the best I have got it up to was 170KPH and I could've got it faster, but I felt bad for giving the car a thrashing.
The car has a decent looking interior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have an Aussie 89 R31 ti and it has no rust, the drivers window has been replaced twice because of failed attempts to steal it, it's starting to rattle in the lifters, but at 2550000 kilos it's in real good order. My diffs great, trans is great, rear tyres are bald from power take offs, these cars are great to drive, maybe a little prone to over steer at speed in the wet, but for the 300 bucks it cost me it's a tough car. I've driven worse.

I recently bought a 1989 R31 gx-e 3.0 and I love it. I have had this car sitting on 200 clicks without red lining it out. I have added a 2.5" exhaust system all the way through with extractors, a racing chip and all pod filters and a racing airflow censer. it is pearl white and in perfect condition. I got lucky and picked it up off a mate for $600.
