1997 Nissan 200SX SE-R 2dr Coupe


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 can though!

Best Features

Much more comfortable for a tall person inside than its competitors-especially the Celica. I'm 6-3 and a 10-hour road trip in the Nissan was much better than a 4 hour one in the Celica. It also still runs very quietly, even when I'm flooring the accelerator.

Worst Features

None since Nissan discontinued the model. I hope the 350Z used a lot of what they put into the 200SX because they had a lot of good ideas. Its a shame it didn't sell well enough for them to keep.
