Perfect everyday daily sports car.

With a set of snow tires it is excellent in up to a foot of snow. If you are over 6 feet tall you may have to lean the seat back a bit to drive but no matter your height, this car will reward you with years and years of trouble free performance driving. I bought my 1996 240sx SE with 20K on the odometer and have put over 60K on it to date. Maintenance is very very very low on this vehicle! There is NO timing belt to break and destroy your engine either. Nissan uses a chain. My fuel economy over the years: lowest 25 mpg, Highest was 35 mpg. Specs: 5-speed SE, California emissions. I have smoked the tires and redlined it for years regularly without an issue. It's a rare gem.




The little red car

I love this car my mom bought it in 96 and I took it over 03. This car is the best car you could ever have. It has 155k on it and I am just now having to do repairs on it. Everyone know me by my little red car and I get lots of stares when I drive it. This car is so much fun to drive and handles great. I do agree with everyone saying be careful when rains you have to know how to handle it.

My first car

Vehicle: 1996 Nissan 240SX SE 2dr Coupe

I searched for over a year in 2001 trying to track down one of these in my area. I knew I wanted a rare car and something with style and the 240sx was exactly that. I've had mine for 7 years with no major issues, just some regular maintenance. This is definitely a reliable car and if and when the time comes to get a new car I can only assume that other vehicles will fall far below the expectations and reliability that my 240 has given me. It's like I'm talking about a friend but truly.. this car really is, because its never let me down.




Love it

I have had this car for over 3 years. I have loved it ever since and it's great to drive. The car performs beautifully, it's great to drive especially on a nice twisting road. The interior is nice and the 5-speed transmission works great. I have had no major problems with it and have 150,000 miles on it!




Redline

i have had this car for 3.5 years now and i dont think i could ever get rid of it. this car is a blast to drive but if you dont know what you are doing, stay out of the rain. i would be happy if i never had to buy another car.




Get a 240!

I love my 240, I wouldn't trade it for anything. Many of my friends have sport compacts and the 240 is by far the best. With a little bit of investment in suspension and performace upgrades you would die for your car. It performs well in the turns but for drag the stock KA24DE engine is strong and great for upgrades. The car is very sought after and you don't see 240's very often so people oh and ah at you.
