    High mileage. Exhaust system corrosion. Nice looking car. Would need to drive it to give a better rating.

    Black Beauty — It's a fun car to drive and zip around in. Looks really nice too. The good is it is a sporty little car that still looks excellent. The lines on it are modern enough to still be in style. The interior is also very modern and still looks good to today's standards and tastes. The bad is there are a lot of features and functions crammed into this chassis that make for a very complex car. This is like Nissan's "...and the kitchen sink" design for a sports car with CD player, HiCAS steering, cruise control, programmable climate controls, alarm system, powered seats, power mirrors, and a few other things I am probably forgetting. The seats are not what you would call comfortable if you are an average to large American Male as they feel tight around the shoulders and rib-cage because of the side bolsters. The steering wheel tends to occlude the controls for headlights and climate and the driver must shift his/her head to the side to adequately see, and some of the repairs are unnecessarily expensive because of design like fuel injectors and alternator.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Sporty interior and exterior that still looks good today.

    Cons: Some of the design of the electrical and engine are difficult to make repairs on.  It's a lot of car in a tiny space.  Seems like too much was crammed into this chassis.

    300zx Is A Great Classic Car — I just purchased this vehicle. I really always wanted one so now that i have the financial stability i went ahead and paid for the 300Z. I plan on doing some minor mods to this vehicle but i really appreciate the stock look.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Great classic look

    Cons: Back seat not to big

    Z32 300zx Twin Turbo - Buy Mint Or Don't Buy! But Buy It! —

    A breathtaking 0-60, I was typically running around 4.8's! I've beat turboe'd celicas, a modded 05 GT, and a modded 350Z, along with some others. Braking was okay, didn't really notice that whole exemplifcation of the "failing 300ZX brakes" issue, but they could have been improved; I definately felt the difference when I installed Brembos in the front. Handling was great, it gripped like no other car I've driven before. It did have its rattles and squeaks, then again it is a 15+ year old Japanese car, it's no classic Benz. Most parts were quality and well built. Interior was okay, a bit cheap if you ask me. My model didn't have leather seats, and the console was kind of boring, but a built in boost guage was fun, and the temperature/cruise control cluster sticking out is retro-cool. The exterior however has a timeless look with a beautiful finish, a spoiler that only compliments, and a body shape ready for high speed endeavors. The gas was ok, until I had the pedal down then I could actually see the gas guage move. Maintenence is pretty simple considering you can use a NISSAN-1 OBD-1 connector, and that JDM parts are cheap and easy to come by. All and all the car is a blast, and I'll definately be buying another in the future!

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fast, grippy, beautiful. If you're going to buy one, buy it with under 100,000 miles and a premium model, or don't buy it at all.

    Cons: It is a bit small for me considering I'm 6'1, and with a sports car about 19 years old, the little odds and ends that aren't working really add up, and comfort starts to fade. Also, a lot of little random things will pop up at you; I sold the car because it had a knock sensor wiring problem locking me at safety boost at 4.5 psi, not allowing me to drive over around 4500 RPMS, and it would have been a b*tch of a job to rewire it from the harness. THERE IS NO ROOM TO WORK ON A VG30DETT!

    A Fun, Sporty Car. — I just love driving this car. Its comfortable, sporty and fun. The perfect cure for any man's mid-life crisis. The gas mileage is about 16mpg in town which isnt great, but for a performance sports car, not to bad. All in all it is a wonderful 2nd car for anyone that is looking for a vehicle to jump in, start up, and instantly have an ear to ear grin.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Its fun, fast, handles like a go cart, is a dream to drive and turns heads.

    Cons: No trunk or storage space, marginal gas mileage.

    One Of My Favorite Cars — performance wise its not the best, a twin turbo would be the best choice. acceleration is pretty good for a car that weighs about 4k pounds, brakes go quickly lol, handling is like a dream. i have heard that the interior looks like the inside of a full built race car. exterior is well just sexy. gas mileage is about 18 city 24 hwy, its really fun to drift and take to a canyon lol

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its rare, i hardly see another person with one, except the people i know lol, or meet

    Cons: Engine bay, there is not enough space, hard to work on lol

    The "million Dollar Car" Awaits You — By far my favorite car to ever own! Cute, sleek, fast, and fun to drive. This car was built to go fast, but careful on the dips and deep driveways...ouch. Engine is strong, no problem passing smog. T-tops, Non-Turbo, 5-spd, 2 seater.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's fun, it's fast, it turns heads.

    Cons: It tries to live up to it's nickname.

    When Buying, Ask To See The Maintenance Records. — Fun car to drive. Stylish design helps the car fit in today and not be dated. Braking, handling and build quality are excellent. Good mileage and great performance. This is my 6th Zcar and I love it. Proper maintenance is a must on all cars.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Very well built car.

    Cons: None.

    Awesome — It's a classic. The 300zx Z32 led the way to a whole new class of performance cars from Japan. Sleek, fast and great handling set the tone for others (Supra, RX-7, 3000GT) to follow. The 2+2 NA had good performance but I did an engine swap to the twin turbo and now it is unbelievably fast (400whp).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great looks, handling and performance

    Cons: heavy and hard to work on.
