Review

This car is ok. That's it. I got this car because somebody t-boned my 97 legacy wagon and wow what a difference. This car is slow and lacks remarkable power. I like this car but it has way too many drawbacks. The automatic (wouldn't let me select it) transmission is and has always been iffy. It never knows what gear to go into and it's not good at all for overtaking other cars on the highway. It eats brakes and I mean eats considering I had to replace the rotors twice within 4000 miles and that's an issue considering I'm a light driver. The distributer has also gone twice. I'd certainly go somewhere else with my money.


Best Features

Sporty look is ok. Nice handling


Worst Features

The seats are absolutely awful, no center armrest. headliner sucks

Review

I bought this Nissan new.
It ran well and was very dependable...until the odometer turned 100,000.
Then, magically, it became a money pit.
Within one year, I replaced CV joints, tie rods, alternator, water pump...and then it developed an aversion to starting.
That's when we parted ways.


Best Features

Car was agile and somewhat fun to drive.


Worst Features

Seats were as hard as park benches. Does Ford design seats for Nissan?

Review

This is it. This is the car for any first time drivers. This is the teen car!
Nothing too fancy, but it gets you from A to B.
The problems though was that I had a crack in the coolant pipe. I have an exhaust leak right now and it drags my rpm down because of it. The driver window is dying and I can't open the trunk with my key. Some rust spots here and there. My belt is making an awful squeaking noise and I think I'm going to have to change my alternator soon.
In all this car holds up to the abuse of the teenage driver. Great gas mileage, great on highway, easy to negate in almost every tight spot.
Its good car but not perfect....unless its for a teenager.

Review

Got this car for my 19th birthday. very nice car just needs a couple of things. speed sensor went out. for only 115 hp it gets the job done. needs speakers. back passenger window is off. front right door dosent open from outside. Driver power window button is not working right. needs new front and back bumper, and paint but other than these problems car runs great for almost 200,000 thousand miles.


Worst Features

horsepower is the real only problem.
