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.
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.
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
Nice driver's layout, i.e., gauges,
shifter, bucket seats, good
visibility, etc. Nice engine.
Pointless to suggest improvements on a
model that was discontinued (or
changed forms) over ten years ago;
however, the cup holders stunk, and it
would have been nice to have a tach
included on a model with a manual
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!
