I have had all kinds of cars But the engines in these things are the worst I've ever had to deal with. I've had 2 of these in the family and it's gotten where I can't stand opening the hoods on these things any more. It's always something . from the fuel pumps to the injectors from the exhaust to the brake calipers.
I've had my 95 nissan 240sx about 2 years now. and its easly my favorit car ive had. i got the car with 190k miles on it. and now has 260k miles on it. and still runs like a champ. ive never had to replace anything on the motor or tranny. which is saying alot since im 22 and drive it like a crazy person most the time lmao. car is soo much fun to drive and even at higher speeds its very controlled and feels great. love the gear box smooth and nicely centered. engine bay has a nice set up very easy to do tune ups. im geting about 30mpg in town and 35 on highway. with my mods.before the mods i was geting about 27 in town and 30 on the highway. taking it easy ont he car.
rear wheel drive
very well controlled
looks great coming down the road
just a real blast to drive.
I was given my 1995 240SX three years ago for free from a good friend. Was getting 31 mpg now about 29 with 188,000 mile and still going strong I must admit it's the best car I have ever had. If and when it finally dies I will miss it.
bought the car a little under a year ago and man has it been awesome. It came with a rock hard suspension on it so it can take an off ramp at about 60 before the tires even squeal. The motor has great torque through many rpm ranges and I even managed to get 29 mpg doing 75 mph on a cross country trip home. the inside is freakishly quiet when going high speeds and always goes in any direction you point it when pavement is involved. probably the closest thing to a perfect car I've driven so far.
Stiff suspension, gas mileage, incredible torque for a 4 cylinder, the wow factor from people when they see it.
only complaint I have is the fact that there is not 1 cup holder in the car.
I had this car for about 8 years now, no major problem except 1.5 years ago the head gasket was blown. I rated 9 for build quality because the window rubber seals on front and back wind shields deteriorated. The weird/rough shifting feel from 1st to 2nd gear (yes it's an auto). Some electrical problems such as front speakers didn't work, CD player laser lens gave out. It didn't really bother me much since I use tape deck for the mp3 player. Overall, this car needs a bit more power.
Ride height at stock suspension isn't bad. Better feel when you lower it with aftermarket suspension setup. Engine bay is easy to work with, lots of room, and the interior design is great for the 90s era.
Nissan should bring back 240sx successor. The Altima 2dr isn't ideal in my book (no offense to altima owners)
