Mine is stick and punches when I use the gas pedal, fun to drive excellent car for work, handling is very good and easy to maneuver. If you want more power look for the se-r model big power for a little car. Very fun to drive .
stick shift Powerful on the se-r Model lots of fun
This was my first car ever and I was nervous. Never thought I would be buying a "sporty" car. This is the greatest car though. No major repairs, fuel efficient, enough space for a Xmas tree. I hope it will last another 10 years. I am thinking about finding some used just in case I need the parts. Nissan indeed should bring this car back. Why not? I never want anything else!
Fuel efficiency, handling, acceleration, size
Fix the check engine light. It seems to respond to temperature!
when i test drove my se-r for the
first time i knew it had potential. i
would never had bought this car if it
wasnt a manual, since the automatic
fails to bring out the performace of
the midsized fourbanger which from the
cabin sounds like an american 5.0L V8.
thanks to the rear suspension this car
has great emergency handling, even at
speeds over 40mph! ive gotten about
30 mpg since i put in the cold air
intake, but that drops to like 22mpg
if i race it a lot. no way will i
ever sell this car! if you want a
small, swift, fun to drive-and-swerve
car, go for a manual 200sx se-r.
manual transmision, 140 hp engine, gas
mileage, and exterior design that
hides the sport coupes abilities.
catch up to the civic si's 160 hp, a
power driver seat, relocate cup
holders, lose the antenna!
This is a very reliable and durable
car. I bought mine in March 1995 and
now the car has 119K on it. No major
problems. Only major maintenance is
that I've replaced the exhaust system
(except cat. conv.), timing belt and
got it tuned up around 100,000. I
don't really have any negatives to say
about this car. I hope to get another
100K out of it. For a low end car, it
is a lot of fun to drive.
Sunroof/Moonroof, Keyless entry,
Nissan should bring back this vehicle,
much like they have the "Z"
