240sx Is A Beautiful Car. — Don't ever buy automatic Nissan sport cars. No power. The 240sx has a lot of electrical problems too, lights and speakers sometime work sometime don't. May be because the previous owner messed it up while installing the power amp system.

Cons

not good for winter, and bad for rust.

35

A Must Have!! — This is a beautiful car! Best car I have ever owned even though I only owned three. Haha. It drives wonderful. Really good for drifting. So much fun to drive. I got it with lots of kilometers so it ddidnt have much pull but I repaired it and it was pretty quick. It just looks so smooth interior and exterior. Love the stock seats as it hugs you. Also I might have to add.. It's a chick magnet haha.

Pros

the positive aspect is it is made for drifting and its rear wheel drive

Cons

it needs more power and torque

25

Its Black And Has Purple Wheels — it has all the options available also it came with a super rare feature called hicas. my 240sx is a rear wheel drive 4 cylinder and its a manual trans. My car has a r33 diff. in it out of a skyline factory and its pushing about 150 bhp stock but its good enough to drift

Pros

Inexpensive; Parts Relatively Available; Stylish; Variety of Ways To Approach Tuning; Overall Great Car To Drive....

Cons

Minor Things That Nissan Decided To Change From The Original 180SX FB (Or Silvia - Coupe)....  Engine Should've Been A SR20DET Powered, Minor Stuff Like The Rear Hatch Being Weak....

35

Potential Drift S-chassis — The 240SX (180SX) has become the new Civic... All across the States, the s13 (Coupe or Hatchbach A.K.A. Fastback) has become more popular due to the growing interest of Drifting.... The among all the s-chassis cars, this car has seems to be the most popular due to the low cost. The stock KA24E (88-90)KA24DE (91-93) engines are equiped in this but most people are more interested in the other engine swaps such as the CA18DET, SR20DET, RB Skyline; 2JZ; & even the F20C (s2K) engines. It has the potential to be anything you want from GO; Show; Both; Or even V.I.P. Whatever you choose... Choose it to your setting... Don't change your driving style to the car but the car to your style. Suspension work, I believe, is the greatest modification that should be focused on but that's just what I believe in... Others might want more power or make the look of the car more presentable to the 2008+ years.... Any Questions? Send me a PM; Email; or IM... Peace out! v(^_^)v

Pros

Excellent handling, low cost, good on gas, very reliable, easy to fix, etc etc.

Cons

Could stand to have a bit more power, mostly for driving on the freeway. This is with the stock KA24E.

Excellente! — I really enjoy taking this car into the mountains (in dry weather). Excellent handling, more than fast enough for winding roads, very reliable, and "fun" to work on, since things don't break very often, despite age (18 years). Fantastic handling. I do not drift, and have zero interest in drifting. I have not found many times where a more powerful engine would help in the mountains on more "technical" roads, but a little bit of tuning up should make it pick up a bit more quickly, and breathe easier at altitude (sea level to 4,000 or 8,000ft in a day). Second KA24E I've had (Nissan hardbody previously). Both don't pick up at all above 3,000ft ASL, with only intake and exhaust modifications. This car works best in quick, winding roads.

I Loved This Car, It Was A Blast To Drive. — This car has great characteristics. It's cheap so crashing it doesn't matter which makes getting those rears out all the more fun.
