1997 Nissan 240SX Coupe SE 2dr Coupe


Review

Excellent Choice in Cars Pros: -Stylish, reliable, fun to drive, handling, no back seat Cons: -Could be faster, uncomfortable on long trips, no back seat -------------------- Overall, I couldn't be happier with my 240! Extremely dependable. I've 135k miles and only problems are the front main seal and valve cover leaks, and the power steering leaks. I love the leather, white face gauges and sunroof. This car gets an average of 25-33 mpg. If you've never driven a rear wheel drive vehicle, you're missing out! THIS CAR DOES NOT HAVE CUPHOLDERS!


Favorite Features

Leather, white face guages, rear wheel drive, spoiler, sunroof, layout of interior, torquiness of engine, 25-30 mpg.


Suggested Improvements

Cupholders, more power.

Review

Ride is a little rough and loud, but it is somewhat of a sports car. The 2.5 Ltr. engine is adaquate at best. Nissan needed to offer other engines as an option. Handling is very good. This is a fun car to drive. It has the looks and reliability factor going for it. Go ahead and get one if you can. Look for a motor out of the Japanese version and drop it in. Then this would be a wonderful sports car.


Favorite Features

Looks, handling and reliability


Suggested Improvements

More horsepower and gauges instead of idiot lights

Review

i have had my car for about 5 months and have come across no problems. it is a nice sized vehicle. the handling is excellent and it has great acceleration for a naturally aspirated 4 cylinder.


Favorite Features

the front and back end of the car is very sharp looking. i really like the head and tail light styles. the front seat is very comfortable. i also like the alloy wheels and sunroof.


Suggested Improvements

skyline engine (RB26DETT) !

Review

I've owned an Integra GSR, and a Prelude SH. Both pale in comparison to the 240SX. The 240SX is hands down the most fun to drive of the three. Rear wheel drive and extremely crisp steering combine yielding an extremely fun, agile and responsive handling set-up. The car's my daily- driven race car.


Favorite Features


Suggested Improvements

Power: Needs more! Aftermarket turbo kits are available. Chassis stiffness: The 5th gen Prelude ('91-'01) has a noticeably stiffer chassis than the S14. Build quality: There are more rattles, and the interior feels quite a bit cheaper than the Prelude's or even the Integra's.
