I bought my 200SX-SE for a total of $3200 after all the repairs/maintenance I needed to do (new tires, battery...) Overall very happy with my purchase, especially in this age where gas costs over $3/gallon. Zippy at above 4000rpm, not so stellar if you're below that sweet spot. Love the sunroof although it rattles and squeaks when driven over bumpy roads. Has AC problems (won't blow at any speed but 4, common with 1995 models) but easily repaired by yourself, just locate the resistor under the glove compartment and replace it with a new one. Car feels cheap, well, it is cheap :D but I don't really mind that.
Sunroof, 5 speed manual, love the rear end looks, EXCELLENT gas milage.
A bit more torque would do this car wonder, especially with such a light body. This model is the 1st to be assembled in the U.S. so there will be flaws, but look for improvement in future models (1996-1998)
I have had pretty good experience with this vehicle... besides the broken axle... but that was my fault for trying to drift in a front wheel drive car in the rain. I have no probs.... never had a prob, and I dont think that any problems will occur with this vehicle
my fav features are the cars tinted windows, and the comfy interior
I think that this car could have been a little bit more powerful... the power isnt that great. I am constantly adding parts to make it perform a little better. cold air intake, headers, exhaust, those kinda things
We are selling our 200sx/se after 10
years of flawless reliable service.
Alternator replacement is the only
major mechanical issue in 10 years.
Maintained as recommended. The car is
anemic with the A/C on when entering
the freeway, though in the winter the
heater is warm as toast after 2
minutes. We had the 5 speed-in my
opinion the only way to go (fun
factor). The mileage is phenomenal-I
pulled 32 city consistently, 40 plus on
the highway (are you listening
Detroit??). After 10 years, it was
time to move on but I'm sure there's
another 100 thousand miles left. I
would recommend this car as a used car
anytime to anyone.
Power moon roof (never a leak), power
mirrors, five speed, rear spoiler,
Better radio, cup holders are kind of
in the wrong place-they block access to
the radio pre-sets.
i bought my 200sx-se in june of this
year and, so far, it is a very
reliable car. i got a good deal, 2,550
for 57,000 miles at the time. since
then, i have driven to 64000 and i
haven't really had a problem. they
only mechanical defect is something
with the air system. it blows a/c and
heat but only on speed 4 and i can't
run the a/c because the car will shut
off. (by the way, if any one know why,
let me know!)
the exterior look, the comfortable
feeling inside the car, the gas mileage
