Picked up my ZX3 this morning!

Yep. It's a 2004 silver ZX3 2.3 liter w/ a manual tranny and 32k miles. Tinted windows, black 18" wheels w/ silver surround ring.

I picked it up in Stanton and drove it 365 miles home. Just got back. Only took 6.5 hours including stops. Me? Speed? Nooooo

The good:
-Only had to take it out of 5th gear a few times going over the grapevine on highway 5.
-Handles and drives great! More get-up-and-go than my old Escort ZX2
-Looks terrific too

The not so good:
-The stock CD player is holding my Prodigy CD for ransom! lol, I was planning on replacing that anyway
-The road noise can be just a little loud on rough pavement.
-Windows, locks, and mirrors are not power, but it's a coupe so I can live with that.

I might install power door locks myself.

Overall I couldn't be happier for the price!

Congrats. Let me know when you got that stock CD player out. I might take it off your hands.

I was a little bothered about the non power windows at first, but i got use to it pretty quick. I believe there's a thread or two about power locks here, maybe it was windows though.. ?

you might not know this my friend, but you have a rare focus there.

Yeah man, sounds like a pretty cool ride. 2.3 with the 5-speed. Have fun! Start with the SVT suspension.. you can usually find the parts online here pretty cheap.

Good luck!
