1990 Nissan Stanza XE 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased this car new in 1989 and it gets great gas mileage at an average of 33 MPG HWY and 27 MPG City. It rides good, it is a comfortable ride and has been over all a great car with very little maintenance.

Review

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.


Best Features

The automatic seat belts.


Worst Features

Could have used a better cup holder design.

Review

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.

Review

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.


Best Features

Power Sunroof, Map Light, Power Windows and Door Locks, Varible Automatic Transmission, Lumbar Support, Rear Spoiler, and 2.4 Liter Engine.


Worst Features

Although this car was replaced by the Altima in 1993, improvements could have made to relocate and resize the tiny cup-holders and the passenger door should have had a switch for the power locks.

Review

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
injectors.


Best Features

Velour seats on GXE Stanza.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy needed for 4 cylinder
