I don't think it's possible for a car
to be any more reliable. I bought it
in 2000 with 34k on it. 4 years,
76,000 miles later, and not a single
problem. Not one! Oil changes, and
new tires are all that has been
required. This little car has gone
from Wisconsin to Montana and back,
Wisconsin to New Mexico and back, and
numerous trips to and from Colorado,
once pulling a U-Haul trailer! I have
been more than happy with my Nifty the
Nissan. Does lack power, but with
manual transmission, you can just
shift 'er down for that extra get up...
unless the A/C is on.... then power is
simply not an option.
Reliability, gas milage (constantly in
the mid to 30's), and more
reliability. I recomend the manual-
much more fun be able to control what
power the car does have. Did I mention
110k miles, and not a single problem?
To me, that is outstanding.
Having to turn the A/C off to
successfully pass someone is a
dangerous lesson to learn on your own.
Also, the cup holders are ridiculous,
as any coffee mug will regularly push
the stereo buttons, if it even fits in
the holder in the first place..
