by momoni on Feb 8, 2004 Vehicle: 1990 Nissan Stanza GXE 4dr Sedan
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
