My 240SX has been a dependable and
sporty means of transprotation.
Performance is good stock. Handling is
awesome, but acceleration is
disappointing. Potential performance
is really high in all areas. Its
comfortable to drive with a well-
placed shifter and good seats. Fuel
economy is so-so. It's fun to drive
with rear-wheel drive, and the torquey
engine makes it feel more fun.
The interior is well-designed, and
exterior styling is great (love the
sleek fastback look and the flip-up
lights). The build quality is very
good, only a bit of rust on the bottom
hatch, and its extremly reliable; it
was cared for with 125k miles, and
if I continue, I'd expect 200k.
RWD and extremly good handling but the
ride isn't too bad either.
Great performace potential (get a

More horsepower (they should have had
the SR20DET engine).
Stock 0-60 acceleration is about 8.7
seconds (with the stock engine (KA24E)
and a stick).
Doesn't do good in bad weather (an LSD
and appropriate tires would help).
