Review of the 1997 Nissan 200SX

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Respectable performance in a package that won't attract undo attention from the bad guys with the radar guns.

  • Cons

    The 200SX has a serious frontal weight bias that makes aggressive cornering dangerous.

  • What's New for 1997

    A spoiler is now standard on all models. An additional exterior color is the only other change for 1997.

My baby girl

Vehicle: 1997 Nissan 200SX SE 2dr Coupe

I still have her at 607K+. Yes, a bit underpowered, but such a mechanically sound car. Simple maintenance and regular driving will keep this engine for many years and even 15 years later, is still a cute little car. Only aesthetic prob that exists w/lot of Nissans is that the paint decays faster - not sure why, but true. Man. tranny is one of the easiest and long-lasting - clutch replaced at 582K for 1st time. Was just in shop for radiator replacement (and brake pads) - original radiator so figure can't beat that. AC is still strong and has never needed work (other than hoses, etc.) and always a pleasure to drive. Will keep running her until she finally dies-Best car ever had.

Great little car! Both my 1st new car and 1st car! Never expected to have such good fuel economy 30-40mpg depending on conditions and driver. This car is 11 yrs old! Driven hard! Modified for performance increase with header, CAI, 17" rims and low profile tires. Added some chrome accents to the wheel wells and bought aftermarket headlights. Short shifter, crank pulley and flywheel. Gone through 2 clutches (excluding a race clutch). Worth every penny to replace. My fault for burning it. Had to learn to shift on this car. Otherwise no broken parts! For 11 years! I will be buying Nissan from here on out.




Excellent car!

I bought my Nissan new in 1997 and have not had any problems since I purchased it. I now have 250,000 miles on it and it still runs great and gets 37 mpg. The car is fun to drive and would recommend it to any of my friends. I plan on keeping my Nissan as long as I can.
