1993 Nissan 240SX 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car in July of 2009 and I love it. I was on a low budget and the car never let me down I drove many miles in it bought it at 144 and now at 161. The stock motor is torquey and keeps up with a well amount of cars from its time. The handling is superb for the price of the car. Its great having RWD. The weight is not too high considering its size its pretty light weight. Can be sometimes a hand full in slippery conditions if your tires are bad. Its an easy car to maintain and rely on. From stock it is quick the motor is strong and can stand a mean beating. The cars steering and how it handles in the twisties makes this car very fun to drive just the feel of everything.


Favorite Features

RWD, Independent Rear, Ease of finding parts, Capability for motor swaps, Light weight, and amount of leg room in the front, double din radio, and lastly but not least ability to Drift.


Suggested Improvements

Gearing( lower gearing for better economy and lower revs), Power from stock, LSD for base, Better stock seats, and better lighting.

1993 Nissan 240SX SE 2dr Convertible


Review

Bought the car used for a daily commuter and now drive it most of the time. Started with 78000 and have driven an additional 98000 miles with one break down from a flat tire.


Favorite Features

Convertible and clean looking.


Suggested Improvements

5 speed automatic would have been a great improvement as the 4 speed struggles from bad gear ratios.

1993 Nissan 240SX 2dr Hatchback


Review

The 240SX is so much fun to drive. The best part of the car is that it is RWD. It's also an affordable, reliable, agile, fun car. It handles better than I can. It gets pretty good gas mileage, especially considering how fast it goes. The way the fastback is situated with the backseat gives great cargo room. I play the tuba, and I can fit 3 tubas and 2 people in the car all at once. There's lots of room under the hood, so you can do whatever you want to the car and it's easy to work on.


Favorite Features

It handles beautifully. It responds instantly, and it looks great. I've never driven with someone who didn't love the car. No one believes me when I tell them it's a four cylinder.


Suggested Improvements

The backseat is very small, but we all know that 2+2 means 2 plus a 2 year old. Just get a sedan if you are driving 4 people daily.

Review

I have had it for almost a year know. Have not had any trouble with it except for the wear and tear but that is expected out of any car.


Favorite Features

5 Speed trans,speeds it reachs with out a turbo.reachs about 145mph after doing some modification to the car.


Suggested Improvements

Having turbo would be nice. Cup holders Having a SR20DET or a RB25DETT would have made the car more better do to it would out perform the compition. More people would have bought the car. I do recommend on buying this car but make sure u check the car be for just buying do to that you see a bk.

Review

I got this car for $4,500 on 4/30/05 with 94,300. It now has 95,700. I just put in an Injen CAI and removed the exhaust resonator. I'll be needing a new clutch soon. Other than the clutch, all is still solid. This is a 12yo car!!! It's a keeper.


Favorite Features

RWD


Suggested Improvements

flip up sunroof

Review

I have liked the looks of the 240SX since it came out. I like good looks and simple lines. This car fit the bill for me. it has a really responsive four-cylinder engine with fantastic stability, tight steering, and enough road feel to feel like a sports car.


Favorite Features

Steering, classic, and good looks.


Suggested Improvements

The gear ratios for the transmission definitely need improvement. There is way too low in the first two gears.

Review

Bought it with 28k miles and now has 183k. Has ran great. With manual trans. it is fun driving both in city and highway. Conducted only standard maintainance and with only minor repairs. Only thing showing wear at this point is interior but nothing out of the ordinary. There is still very little interior rattling. Engine sounds as though it can go at least another 100k miles and transmission is still smooth. Plenty of low-end torque and acceleration. It has been a fun car.


Favorite Features

Reliablility, rear wheel drive with a good suspension, good styling.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holder, relaunch this discontinued line (with same engine)

Review

I bought this car in 1,700 and it is the best car I Have ever driven. It haves a lot of power and low end torke. Its rear weel drive and its a very competitive car. The only bad part is that the owner always left It outside, so its rusting on the hood and the mufler. But still the best car I have ever had and when I drive it I feel proud. I put A K&N filter to save gas, its like a small suv, 21mpg automatic!


Favorite Features

Horsepower, sunroof, overdrive,


Suggested Improvements

Yes, defenetly a cup holder, and, I know you can remodel a car after its so old, but all the other owner can agree: More Trunk Space!!
