I liked the non-turbo 3000GT so much, I bought the all-wheel drive turbo model as well. If you like the way this car looks, you'll like driving it just as much. It's comfortable, even for a tall driver. (I'm 6'2" 185cm)

There are a lot of electronic gadgets, and more on the turbo than the non, and these can keep you busy with minor repairs if you insist that they all work. In general, I'd recommend it to the DIY owner who can handle auto repairs. Service manuals and procedures are very good, and diagnosis is relatively simple, particularly if one invests in a Palm Pilot and diagnosis software, which plugs into the diagnostic connector on model years except 94 & 95.

I enjoy the car, but there are some known service items to look out for:

There is a safety recall on the AWD transfer case, which can lock all 4 wheels and send the car into an uncontrollable skid.

The engine control module in models up to 1995 usually fails due to faulty components. Preventive work requires $4 USD in parts or a $150 repair by shops specializing in the unit. This is better than a $2000 replacement by a dealer.

The turbo engine is a little underdesigned. Hard, fast driving can result in catastrophic damage, easier than one might expect.

In spite of all this, I love the car and I'd gladly buy a 3rd.
