Love the car to 220,000 miles :) Strengths : Handling is awesome, turning radius can't be beat. 12 valve Engine is reliable mechanically, with very few problems electrically, a timing CHAIN !! Rear wheel drive that makes the car a DREAM to drive on dry pavement. Good Cali car. Weaknesses: 1. Exhaust manifold bolts @ 60,000 and 120,000 mi. :( 2. Slippery on wet pavement when accelerating forward, side slip negligable on corners @ 70mph wet. 3. Injectors leaking badly at 125,000 :( 4. Sensors, fan clutch and radiator replaced at 100,000 mi. :| 5. Timing chain changed at an astounding 150,000 miles :) 6. 210,000 mi. front seat broke. :| 7. front oil seal @ 100,000 :| Nice car, worth it :)
Handles very good, even at 200,000 miles with NO work done on the suspension. Comfortable seats while cornering hard. Body style is always in style. Engine is reliable, with few quirks. A keepable car. Lock it good as teens like it for the perfect front to back weight distribution.
This was my first car. I love the feel of a rear wheel drive car and the stick makes it fun to drive. It isn't the fastest thing in the world, but does hold its own. It was never meant for more than one passenger. The paint is faded and peeling and the interior is ripping, but the car is after all sixteen years old. Mechanical problems have been minimal and easily and inexpensively fixed.
Peek-a-boo headlights, ability to hug the curves, sleek look.
I have owned my 240 for 3 yrs and it
still is tearin it up. These cars
sound great with a system and it is
the coolest car to modify in the
world! I love rear wheel drive. Why

I've owned my 240sx for 2 years now,
havn't had any engine problems, just
electrical which was expected
(altenator, starter). Since I have
owned it, I've installed a centerforce
clutch (excellent for car), kyb rear
struts, injen air intake, sumitomo
tires, and a sports exhaust along with
the 2 resignators removed. (a very loud
4-cylinder) The one engine problem I am
dissapointed in is that there has been
a small fuel leak out of 2 of the fuel
injectors, everytime I start the car, a
small amount of fuel leaks out the
injectors. Overall I am proud of my
240, the rear wheel drive made this car
Fast off the line for a 4-banger.
Handles great. Rear wheel drive. nice
stylish look for an old car. This car
was designed by the Japenese for drift
