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.

I've put a leadfooted 94,000 miles on
my '97 200SX SE-R and am more than
pleased. Other than a loose wire (dash
lights blink out-bang the dash they
come back on), a distributor wire
problem causing intermittent
sluggishness, I have no complaints.
Still fun to drive, still performs
almost like new (not quite as perky)
and I have had no engine or
transmission problems. I would
recommend it to anyone looking for a
reliable, compact used car for $3-5K.
I plan on keeping mine for as long as I

Great car.Bought it with 40,000miles
and it now has 64,000miles and I have
not had a problem with it since.
And even now the car is quiet and
solid. No electrical problems at all.
Very good on gas. And the interior of
this car looks a heck of a lot nicer
then newer cars. Sleak!
And the seats are so cool. Very comfy!
Nice sound system (for being

Bought this car with just under 36000
miles. SE-R model has plenty of power
and handles great!! Had a 60000
powertrain warranty from Nissan. Timing
chain snapped at 42000 miles and blew
motor on routine driving and Nissan
denied to fix it because of aftermarket
header!! Sorry Nissan that put a sour
note in the books for me. $4200 later I
sold the car.

I bought the car brand new nearly 5 years ago. Since then the only major problem I've had a small leak that the transmission developed after 2 years. Dealership replaced the transmission seal within 2 days and I haven't been back since.
The car has so much punch for it's size that people who ride it, can't believe what they see. Good handeling, great brakes, looks so sweet when polished and clean that you get compliments from strangers. Plenty of trunk space to boot!! Fuel economy could be better, but then again, the car just begs to be driven hard. I'd buy another if they still made them.
