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
A lot of fun to drive. Gets a lot of
attention. I definitely recommend it.

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!

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,
