"There isn't much out there quite like a Twin Turbo Stealth / 3000GT. It has almost every feature imaginable for a 1992 model car. During the first 6 months of ownership, each time you tinker with the car, you learn of another feature you wouldn't think the car would have.
If you are poor, a turbocharged Stealth is not the car for you and you must not let your lust for it overcome you. It seems to be built quite well and reliable, but when something does go wrong, it is expensive to fix. In my opinion, the common mechanical issues these cars have are the result of abuse and hard driving due to their sporty nature. And also, these cars have so many parts throughout--the adjustable suspension, variable tone exhaust, all wheel drive, all wheel steering, 2 turbochargers, 2 intercoolers, big fat tires, anti-lock brakes, pneumatic clutch assist, consealed headlights plus more I am forgetting. So with all this stuff, chances of something somewhere going wrong is greater than that of a much simpler Geo Metro.
It handles awesome, it is very fast, traction is not an issue in rain or dry pavement, and to lose control of it, you have to be doing something incredibly stupid. A hard launch will spin all four wheels on dry pavement... but that can't be good for the car.
With the automatic climate controls, my feet never get cold, I never get too hot. The radio stays working when you turn the key off until you open the door, the headlights do something similar to the radio's function, It may as well not have a rear seat. Trunk space is sufficient, but very shallow. The rear seats fold down for extra accomodability though. Getting in and out isn't the easiest. Head room is okay. The doors open and close like a brand new 2009 car. Gas mileage is around 21-25 mpg... usually 23.
The car requires dedication to own, and a good job helps, too."
