Fun Fast Cheap To Buy — mitusbishi gto twin turbo, very very very very fast. beat plenty of e46 m3s. performance- very quick 300hp 3.0 twin turbo engine. THE ECS suspension keep the car feeling great in the corners and the 4wd gives plenty of grip but the 4ws makes the car feel twitchy in corners. build- like a rock apperance- black paint, only a car enthusiast will notice. cost- not economic, insurance is high and as i tax . but the car is very cheap fun- very

Pros

I have driven the 1997, 3000GT, 3.0L v6, for 9 years. Great Car. Just bought a 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 and I hope is as reliable as the 3000GT.
The 3000GT easily meets it's 5 Star rating that is posted on the websites.

Cons

Can't drive in winter up North. Back seats are for kids, but what does anyone expect from a sports car.

Great Sports Car For The Money — This car turns heads especially in red. The 3000gt handles well but could use a little more power. Hatchback is good for long items such as sporting goods. My paint has held up very well but it was kept inside the garage by me and previous owner.

Awesome! — its a great car, handles well. accelerates well. the downside to it is the FWD system. the car would be alot more fun if it was RWD. overall it was built pretty well, and the leather interior is great. overall i give a 4 out of 5 stars

I love everything about this car. It's why I bought another one after my first one was totaled.

Cons

I can't think of anything that I would hate about this car

Best Japanese Sports Car. — I love this car. When I first saw a 3000GT I knew i had to have one. It's quick and handles like a champ. People are always checking it out when I drive by. Driving this car always puts a smile on my face. These cars a little expensive to maintain, but are definitely worth it.

Great looks, great performance and fun to drive

Cons

Needed a bit to warm up cuz of the aftermarket stuff the owner put in

Looking For A Good Mid 90's Sports Car? This Is It. — Very sharp good looking car. Steering was kinda tight but that's how the owner likes to have it. Felt like it had good stopping power (cuz the owner put on new brakes.) Pretty fun to drive, although it would have been more fun if I let it warm up first.

Pros

looks great and with the amount of body kits a nd such you can get it can look even better. great amount of power and with some after market parts it could be even better.

Cons

only thing i can think of is  no room in the back seat for passengers to be comfortable

35

I Want One — great power and handleing, nice inside and out. only prob is theres not a lot of room in the back seat but you can't expect that from a sports car
