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.
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?
Handling is first rate; this is a 2+1/2
passenger go-cart. Performance is
pretty contemporary, 0-60 in 6.8
seconds if you can afford a new clutch
every year and 7.4 seconds for the rest
of us. Expect to get about 20 mpg in
the city, 28mpg in mixed driving. The
car is very pleasant to drive at
highway speeds. Engine noise is muted
and the car tracks beautifully. Seats
are comfortable for two; consider the
back seat for small kids only. Plenty
of cargo room with the seat folded.
Interior fabrics are look cheap and
wear quickly. Radio stinks.
Steering response, handling, straight
line stabilty, shifter, acceleration.
A/C needs more capacity to handle all
the glass area on a sunny day. Standard
radio (there were no options)needs
improvement. Dealer service has been
unforgivably incompetent. Must have A/S
or snow tires in winter
