I've had my car for a little over 4 years now and and I love it. It's far from stock form now though with the Japanese SR20det motor with 14 lbs of boost and doing about 300 hp at the wheels and lowered 2". I've replaced the hood, trunk, mirrors and other parts with carbon fiber pieces to lighten it up and everywhere I go in it, I get people checking it out and loving it.

i had the opportunity to purchase one of these amazing cars right after high school and it's been the best first car if you're into cars. it handles great stock but put a new suspension under it and you will keep up with or beat most cars in the corners, provided you know what you're doing. the torque is more than most 4 cyl can dream of, and it has a nice powerband up to 5500. though a set of cams can fix this rather nicely. all in all i love my 240 and though i have tried to sell her 4 times i just can never do it. its a great car and im saddened that people didnt buy more of them when they were new so nissan would have kept building them.

I bought my 240 used about five years ago, and I haven't had any problems with it. I've only had to do routine mainteinance, which has been wonderful. This car is fun to drive. I wish that they still made new ones!

It's an awsome car. Great handling on
sharp turns. Kind of scary starting
off fast on wet roads, car starts to
drift (scary yet fun) Had the car for
almost 2 years now. So far, no
problems, and is in great running
condition. 240 parts, although, are
hard to find and are expensive. But
other than that, great looking
exterior and interior. Awsome vehicle!!
and got better mileage. I also own a 1996 nissan 240sx and that even gets better mileage than my sentra! Anyone know if that's normal mileage for my car, or should I be concerned about maybe changing...
I think anyone who owns one understands me. I own a 1996 GXE and I recently started reading tuning magazines. A few days ago, I read about a 240SX that had swapped its engine with the Nissan Silvia....
