Overall:

Pros: Most important; Its fun to drive. The styling is unlike every other car on the road. Most aftermarket part costs are reasonable and available and, if youre a mechanic, you can handle most repairs. I have over 200k miles on mine and am thinking about getting a long block and restoring it. Cons: Automatic Transmissions do not last in this model no matter how its driven. As a rule they die way shy of 100k miles and are not cheap to have rebuilt. Mine needs a 3rd rebuild. As with most cars their age insurance companies will consider even the most minor fender bender a total loss; a minor incident with mine that caused it to need a fender, headlight assembly, fascia and paint resulted in the insurance company totaling it. I am not aware of any additional insurance available that considers it a special vehicle.

F-22 With Wheels — This is hands down the best, fastest, most beautiful car I have ever owned. It makes you want to drive. Good on gas, good in snow, faster than most production cars and looks like it is from the future. Get one if you can.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome look, precise handling ...like a jet fighter with wheels!

Cons: Rare car

Yeah, Its A Bit Expensive, But The Enjoyment Of Driving One Makes Up For It — performance: great reliable performance, AWD, AWS, handles great. build quality: center diff (viscous coupling unit) split the pins. causing 1 of the cogs 2 get ground up. very expensive to fix ( car was second hand with ~150,00km on the odometre ) apperance: very sleek. very sporty. and it looks the goods. cost of ownership: feul economy is great for a 3L twin turbo. the cost of parts are expensive and hard to find. fun factor: this car is awesome to drive. so much fun, and extremely fast.

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

Pros: good handling, safe, fast.

Cons: expensive

My 3000gt — The car is great overall, It's a blast to drive, gets looks wherever I go, and is quite comfortable to ride in. surprisingly my car apparently has less rattles than a certain 2007 Mustang with ridiculously low mileage. Mileage is decent, around 25 during the summer. Styling both inside and outside is amazing, people rarely think the car is 11 years old. I've had nothing major go wrong in the year or so I've owned it, but I've had to fix a couple small things like an exhaust leak, etc.. Overall I'd recommend a 3s to anyone. Just do your research before buying.

Pros: Handles well, sounds amazing, LOOKS amazing, Fun to drive, No rattles, Quite comfortable to ride in.

Cons: Noticed easily by PoPo (comes with the territory LOL) not as fast as a TT, had no major issues, but feels like little annoying things are always going wrong.

The 3000 — The car has got looks that kill. It is a very reliable car and decent on gas. Handles good for a fwd car too. The only problem is the thing is severly underpowered. Think old saturns and grand ams. Well maybe not that bad but you get the point.

Pros: The car just looks fantastic

Cons: SOHC base model is SSLLLLOOOOOWWWWW

What More Could You Want? — I recently purchased this car because I couldnt stand driving an SUV anymore. and I have to say its a great change, this car seeing as its not the TT AWD version isnt as fast as its bigger brother, but it still looks every bit of the part! I have people constantly asking me if its turbo, VR-4 ETC, and it gets looks just about everywhere I go. You don't see too many of these cars and that is a reason I love it.

Pros: Dead Sexy
Gets Looks
Easy to work on
Sounds Awesome
Good gas mileage

Cons: Not as fast as I'd like it to be
Limited aftermarket support

This vehicle is a real racing machine. It has a lot of power, a luxurious interior, back seats, a lot of cargo area and looks like a $60,000 super car.
