I bought this Nissan new.
It ran well and was very dependable...until the odometer turned 100,000.
Then, magically, it became a money pit.
Within one year, I replaced CV joints, tie rods, alternator, water pump...and then it developed an aversion to starting.
That's when we parted ways.

This is it. This is the car for any first time drivers. This is the teen car!
Nothing too fancy, but it gets you from A to B.
The problems though was that I had a crack in the coolant pipe. I have an exhaust leak right now and it drags my rpm down because of it. The driver window is dying and I can't open the trunk with my key. Some rust spots here and there. My belt is making an awful squeaking noise and I think I'm going to have to change my alternator soon.
In all this car holds up to the abuse of the teenage driver. Great gas mileage, great on highway, easy to negate in almost every tight spot.
Its good car but not perfect....unless its for a teenager.

Got this car for my 19th birthday. very nice car just needs a couple of things. speed sensor went out. for only 115 hp it gets the job done. needs speakers. back passenger window is off. front right door dosent open from outside. Driver power window button is not working right. needs new front and back bumper, and paint but other than these problems car runs great for almost 200,000 thousand miles.
