When I purchased this car I loved it. It needed a few new parts to get it running but when I got it running I absolutely loved it. The NX given the B13 chassis and the SE-R sport suspension made this a fun car to drive. The sound of the exhaust just gets my adrenaline pumping. It's been referred to as the baby skyline because of the potential that the engine and chassis have just like the skyline. Already great, well balanced car with even more room for improvements. I absolutely love my car. I have been rebuilding it for about a year now turning it into a good looking tuner street car. You will be hard pressed to find a more fun car to drive
SE-R sport suspension, B13 chassis, SR20DE engine, sound of power
Boost the horsepower and torque up a notch, offer a SE-R version just like the sentra
Bought car new in 1991 to drive to work. Good acceleration, great handling, interior space is limited but what do you expect? MPG are in the low twenties but depends on how hard you drive it. No rust. The only problem is the struts to the hatchback, after two pair I use a broom. Its not like I use it for a truck.
With a curb weight of around 2300, a 2litre motor makes this car go fast. Add some performance into the suspension, and this car will go fast around the bends too. Fun to drive and unique, avoid the automatic tranny to keep it real.
OBD-I, easy to work on, ballanced motor.
Put your first improvement dollars into the suspension.
Had this car for a little over a year now and it's been nothing but fun and reliable. Aside from the Ttop seals leaking, this machine is SOLID. Super fast city car. If a quick commute across the city at 80-90km/h is what you're in for, consider this about as necessary as any modern sport compact. Only majors needed since purchase were fuel pump and struts. Handles like my old 914 at high speeds! Good luck fitting anyone in the back. If you're 6', don't bother. It's a clipper ship in a bottle. New rims(17's), tires, chip it, exhaust and stereo = blow 95civis off the road. o_O
Accel, handling, tops, folding backseat ^_^, lots of aftermarket engine parts for this. Mileage is insane. 2 weeks commuting, 1 tank.
Engine could really be easier to dive into. Interior degrades after 14 years lol. Gaskets and weak fuel pump.
Bought this car for my son a couple
years ago, and since he has left I have
been driving it. I did not pay much for
it, and other than clutches, (2 in
55,000 miles, while being driven by a
ticket magnet) it has been quite
reliable. With the top off on a twisty
mountain road, it is more fun than just
about anything I have driven. Both fast
and quick. Radio sucks, lots of the
plastic is really starting to look bad,
but for 2300 bucks, what do you want?
