Used to have a Prelude, now have a 240SX
By brady dohrmann on


1997 Nissan 240SX SE 2dr Coupe


My previous car was a 1992 Honda
Prelude Si, which is a pretty good
competitor for this car. The dash is
simple and not overstyled (some people
may dislike that), the engine it
torquey and extremely reliable. The
brakes are dissapointing, but they were
on the Prelude as well. The engine
sound is decent and I love the exhaust
sound. Overall build quality is right
on par with the Prelude.

I autocrossed both cars and the 240SX
in addition to being faster in my
experience, is a lot more fun to
drive. Not only is the car RWD, but it
seems to suffer from chronic oversteer
- it's great fun! It's an awesome
touring coupe.

Best Features

RWD, aggressive front end, front chin spoiler on SE model, sporty seating position, precise shifter, Limited Slip Diff., nice seats, nice dash, good torque.

Worst Features

More Power! With 175-195hp the 240SX would have been an animal. Other: More headroom. If I was compromising headroom for a 200hp engine, then I wouldn't say anything. ABS would be nice on all cars. My car doesn't have ABS and I have square tires as a result. That's it!
