Review

From my other review. 2002 Black on Black SE 6M 3/17/08. OK! What I stated before still stand, but we need to slam Nissan or the horrible, just horrible OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM. This car does consumes oil. It will run normal for the most part and if your not careful and check the the oil level you can and will do damage to the motor. I keep a 5qt bottle of castrol high milage. After 200 mi of driving or so I have to add a qt or two of oil. That's right! Nissan won't admit to this problem. don't bother with synthetic if it consumes oil. The burn off is costly with that oil. I tried just about everything excepting changing the engine. Good luck....


Best Features

Comfort, Gas mi is ok. 6spd gear box. Interior dedign.


Worst Features

Cd left channel cut out. Rattle from rear deck with Bose stereo. Fix the oil consumption problem. Nissan recalls and fix this problem.

Engine performance. HID lamps.


Worst Features

Don't use inferior products for piston rings, etc.
