I have had but one real problem and that was the fuel pump. I found one in a wrecking yard for 35.00 and have no problems since. I have changed the spark plugs and the brakes need done and possible cv joint will be needing replaced soon, but what do you expect after 238,000 miles. It has been the best little car I have ever bought.

My wife has had this car for about 12 years. I have been driving it for the last 4 and have had no major problems. just standard maintenance. Am just know putting front brakes on it since my wife had owned it. Had replaced the raditor because of a slow leak, replaced the cv joints once 1 year ago. That is it. This car is roomy, has good exceleration and good on gas. Maintence has been negligible. Love this car and I'm still driving it.

I bought this car in 2000 when I was a
freshman in college for $1400. Little
did I know i would have to spend about
another $700 to get it in shape. The
problems have been minimal and parts
have pretty reasonable prices.
Although it is a 4 cylinder, it
performs very well and gets average gas
milage. It has a sporty feel and
easily passes any Accord or Camry of
its age. Passenger room is nice up
front, yet tight in the rear. The
Stanza offers everything it rivals do,
only more power and a smaller price.

I inherited this car from my
Grandfather and he used it mainly in
town with some highway use on I-15 so
milage average is low. I had to replace
all the leaking fuel injectors in 2002
but that is only major repair failure.
Other normal maintenance issues like CV
Joints, etc. are required for all cars.
Gas milage is less than my same 1990
Mazda 626 (which is a 5 speed). This
car is a bit tight in headroom for me
but a great 2nd commute car for my
wife. Stanza design hurt its longevity
but it is comparable to other Japanese
cars for reliability outside of fuel

Just sold my Nissan Stanza after ten
years. Never a major problem. Only
had to deal with maintenance issues
that begin to crop up with an aging
car, i.e.,clutch, fuel injection
system, etc. If not for the generic
styling, the Stanza would have been a

A very fun to drive car. The 2.4L is
plenty for the Stanza. The car car has
average handeling. Comfort and fit and
finish are also average. The
reliability though for a Nissan is
terriable. I spent $4,000 in repairs in
just one year!
Honda is not the only car and that is my exact point. In 1990 I bought a new Stanza and my niece is driving it today, it has never had any problems (timing belt still stock) and it runs great. I beli...
