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.
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.
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.
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.
Steering, classic, and good looks.
The gear ratios for the transmission definitely need improvement. There is way too low in the first two gears.
I bought this car brand new, and never
regretted it. Only time it gave up on
me was when the starter gave out at
190,500 miles. Over the years, this
hatchback gave me outstanding
reliability. It was a fun-to-drive rear-
wheeled drive, with minimized roll on
tight speed-turns, good acceleration
(160 ft/lbs of torque at around 4000
rpm), very good fuel consumption, and
an outstanding drive-train, not to
mention the sporty good looks. I love
Peppy 2.4L 4cy engine, hatchback style
with plenty of cargo space when the
rear seats are folded down, rear-wheel
drive, very good mileage consumption
for the HP it generates, sporty good
looks, outstanding power train.
it is fun it seems like there is a
little something behind it, specially
in the 60-90 range. Very very
skiddish, had it 2 mths and 2
fishtails, a third minor one today
testing turning radius. maybe i need
to put some ballast in car. mechanics
feel good, engine sounds nice.
short-throw stick, all pedals feel good
and responsive, looks different from
most cars in its class.
half the time it feels like its flying
off the ground.
