This car has been a joy so far. I
replaced an excellent condition CRX Si
with this car and it delivers even
better performance with a back seat! I
have over 22,000 miles on my car and I
haven't had a problem yet. I will say
the paint sucks, but that was the only
thing I can say negatively. For the
price there was nothing in the same
class when I bought it. It has a
decent aftermarket following for the
engine and some suspension upgrades.
But in all actuality they aren't really
needed. I have a 2001 SE with
performance package, sunroof, and 5spd.
The engine is a dream. It still holds
its own against the newcomers (RSX Type-
S, 2003 Civic SI, 2003 Focus SVT) Its
nice to have an inexpensive efficient
family sports car.
Paint quality needs to improve. That
is definately a weak area for Nissan as
