I recently gave this car to my brotherin law with 236,122 miles and it runs like it was new. The power, comfort and reliability are unbelievable. Everything on the engine is original and the only maintenance is regular oil and filter, tires, brakes and at 110k I replaced the belts, struts and plugs. Don't know why nissan would change such a great engine. My new 02 doesn't even stand up to the 96 as far as reliability or comfort.
The whole car.
Unfortuniately the body is in need of work. Front fenders are rusting out along with behind the rear doors.
