2000 ZX3 5spd..I bought new for $13,800 out the door...

Stock Clutch
Replaced suspension with SVT at 180,000. Car was sagging so bad the SVT suspension actually raised the car an 1" LOL!
SVT Exhaust with headers
Rebuilt alternator
8 sets of rear drums cause bearings suck!
Scan Gauge II shows 38-40mpg city/highway driving
Replaced timing belt once at 130K...wont do it again. If the motor goes its goes I have had my use out of the car.
2 Fuel pump failures under warranty.
Tie rod ends/
Valve cover gasket x 2.
Coil pack x 2
Plugs / wires x 2

I do all my own maintenance and am real anal about noises. As soon as I hear something odd, Im all over it fixing it right away.

Only thing broken is E brake and Air bag light on all the time.

Showing some rad fluid coming from the weep hole in the back exhuast can...guessing head gasket worn. Been doing for a longtime and hasnt gotten worse.

AWESOME reliability!
