No problems whatsoever after 2 yrs. Exterior styling is great; I get many compliments. The car is rare. Love the rear wheel drive. Handling/cornering is perfect. Interior is cheap (common complaint with Nissan cars). With 47k miles on it, and I'm starting to hear some rattles from the dashboard area. Stock steering wheel in the SE is to thin. A thicker, leather-wrapped wheel would be a huge improvement. (My '91 SE with every option was a better car.) The backseat is basically useless. The 155 hp not enough, but it still feels peppy. A lot of fun to drive. Gets a lot of attention. I definitely recommend it.




I love this car

Buying a 97 the factory tires had been replaced so me opting for better ones would not really be any suggestion. But when you do put performance tires on this car it handels like it is on rails. If you think the ride is to harsh you are to old and should drive a dangerous, wasteful SUV!




A perfect 10!

After several months I decided I know the car well enough to review. I bought the car over 300 miles away, when I say the couple hour trip back was comfortable, I mean it. With this car you do feel the bumps, there is more road feel. This is a sports car, not a luxery car. It's a lot lower than the Pathfinder, and not as smooth over bumps, but definetly more fun, and longer trips feel shorter. It's quick, and there's lots of torque with this motor. Nothing beats the fun of RWD, as for handling, let's just say it's skidpad is equivalent to the 97 BMW M3. A mildly modified SR motor can run mid 13s, that Porsche Carrera, Corvette territory!

a 1998 Altima (78,000 - wife's), and a 1994 240SX (play drifter). The distributor on your car has a well known flaw - at low speeds it heats up and causes an oil seal to leak. Right now yours has a...

The old RWD 200SX went through three generations (S11, S110, and S12) in the US before it became the (S13) 240SX in 1989. Nissan reused the 200SX tag for the B14 Sentra coupes. The JDM S13 (Silvia cou...
