The sound system isn't very good, but only a minor detail.

1998 Nissan 200SX SE-R 2dr Coupe


Review

200SX is a great car for young people
who doesn't have the money for a luxury
sports car. With little mods it can be
turned into a sportier coupe, just
replace it's 14 inchers with 16's and
you got a new powerful look!!. No
mechanical/electrical problems
experienced.


Best Features

White face gauges


Worst Features

Clutch pedal should have a softer feel, it feels some how hard and non-linear.

Review

My wife and I bought the SE-R in 2001
for a commuter for her. In two years
and nearly 35,000 miles there's not
been a bit of trouble. We're nearing
90K now and our mechanic said the
little guy is doing great. Lot of fun
on the road; the light body and 2-liter
engine make driving in traffic a bit
more fun and it handles very well. I'm
6'-3" tall and sitting in it works fine
but getting in and out it a bit of
chore when you're bigger.


Best Features

Styled very well as far as commuter cars go. Handles excellently and accelerates pretty quick.


Worst Features

I would suggest that Nissan should have thrown a six-speed manual (like the Sentra SE-R Spec V released this year). The 2-liter engine is great on gas but the car would go faster if there was a sixth gear. Also, for the tall guys: get the seat off the floor!

Review

Bought the car new in '98. Had
several problems when new, but once
they were fixed by the dealer, the car
has proven very reliable, fun to drive
and has held up exceptionally well.
Initial problems included leaking
freeze plug, broken clip inside the
steering wheel. Dealer corrected all
problems.


Best Features

Nice styling, easy to do minor maintenance, sporty, yet very economical. Very affordable when new and nicely equipped for the price.


Worst Features

Begin making a 2 door se-r. I refuse to even consider the newer 4 door models when I trade.

Review

Great car. Fast, powerful (weight to
horse power ratio) and excellent
quality. Made several trips south of
the border) at full power for hours
(just shy of the speed limiter) without
any problems at all. My former US cars
rattled since new and I did not trust
the engines for long hours in high
rpms. The car still feels like new.
Engine, suspension and shocks are
amazingly perfect after 60000 miles. We
had a 95 Mustang GT and it was as fast
as it but for the speed limiter. Very
civilized, excellent sound system, and
an excellent purchase.


Best Features

Engine, economy, power, lights, looks, quality (not one rattle), interior, sound system.


Worst Features

Paint quality could be improved. Single horn sounded pathetic and replaced it with duals. Long stick shift belongs in a truck, but a 4 inch cut made shift changes fast and enjoyable. Sits are too low, but raised them with $10 in hardaware parts.
