1993 Nissan 240SX Hatchback 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 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)
