Bought this car with 143,000 miles on
it four years ago after my vehicle was
totaled in an accident. Needed an
inexpensive but reliable car in a
hurry. She keeps going, going, and
going. The car has over 200,000 miles
on it now. Recently replaced CV joints
radiator, and oil gasket. Car has
great gas mileage, pick up but does
burn a lot of oil. Will keep her until
she dies but looking for a roomier
i owned my nissan for 2 years. when i received my nissan the car had 186,000 miles on it. when i sold it the car had 222,000 miles on it and was still running very well. i am a true believer in owning a nissan. i have a ford escort now and i realize now that it will never be as good to me as my nissan was. i hope in the future to own one again
it run really well. i could hardly tell when the car was on. it got me where i was going with no worries
Well I am a Rather large man 330 lbs and 6,2" offensive tackle size. LOL., son is 220 and tall, daughter is 6,1" and 200 lbs. Need some rear shocks now- Wonder why? LOL so this vehicle can carry around some pretty heavy loads. Winter I use studded tires. Up and down the bc hills and when it snows at times people are required to use chains. This vehicle just scampers up and down these hills. I'm a great driver but I have to give some credit to this little yet big car. When I purchased it it puffed some smoke. So I kept fresh oil in her. Keep changing the oil. I have put some oil treatments in her too. Still puffs some smoke at lights. LOL. It still keeps ticking.
It keeps going. Keep care of your motor. Fresh oil and filters is the trick. Great fuel economy. Around 600 km to the tank. That's without air conditioner of which mine doesn't work never did since I purchased it. Great get me there and back vehicle. Don't skimp on tires.
Wider and higher door openings. When you get in its great. Too small for me. Better rubber shift covers and door weather stripping.
I got it for two years and it hadn't
make me blue yet. It's very easy to go
around 35 miles.It's not powerful
enough to speed up very fast (1.6L),
but once it reaches 50mph and up, it
takes very very little effort to keep
the speed. In two years, I changed oil
every 3000 miles and I only changed the
brakes once. I'd like to say it's
Easy to drive. Little mantainance
needed. High reliability.
Very solid, trusty, reliable car -
first car I'd ever owend (at age 30!).
I had a bare bones "E" model (little
engine, manual windows, not even a
passenger side mirror!) but it never
gave us any real trouble. Bought with
about 25k on it and drove it for over
Excellent care for puttering about
town, driving to the train station,
running errands, even going a on a
road trip - but only if you were a
hard up college age kid :-)
Good fuel economy, high 20s MPG, but
that comes at a price -- engine is a
little skimpy and merging onto the
expressway full of SUVs can take a few
minutes off your life.
Only maintenance issues were routine.
Lack of extras! Really - it made
parking on street in urban area very
