Nissan Primera — It is a nice car to drive with comfy seats. It is not that fast but it was not made for speed. If I would change anything about this car it would be the engine size because it is quite a big car with a 1.6 engine and it uses a lot of fuel.

reliable fast cheap

Cons

uncomftable ride

Nice Car, Dull Image — refined engine and good build quality make this car a very sensible buy, the 2 litre 16v engine returns 31mpg around town and an amazing 48mpg on a run,the car being a sports model isn't the most comftable car i've driven and feels like your driving on just the rims,and the steering even though it's power assisted feels quiet heavy,and altogether feel quiet dull to drive................... that is until you hit that all so magical 4000rpm and the car takes of like a poodle in a room full of horny rottweilers,suddenly the firm suspension, the 50mm thick tires and heavy steering all seem to be making so much sense,and as the 140bhp engine takes you from 0-60 in 9.1secs and up to speeds twice the national speed limit while the twiked up multi link suspension keeps you stuck on the road like bird crap on a picnic blanket,and the premature abs means if you see a old lady walking down the fast lane of the m25 and you hit your brakes, you will be checking your own internal organs before anything else.overall this car has been great, dispite the apulling turning circle and knowing what the snail you ran over had for breakfast.It's what you'd call a drivers car..

:) — Nice one, big and good to drive. Very reliable. Don't need too much service, just petrol. The only thing why I will go further is the weakness of the engine. Next one is the type S Accord:))) Anyway the car has 100 hbp, 1,6 l , a/c, Dezent wheels, and a new wing!!

SPEED

Cons

If you dont like Speed

Top Car If You Like Speed — This is fast, comfortable. looks sexy, sounds sexy, and is generally wonderful. as for handling, it drifts nicely, but also doesnt wonder off course too much. all i can say is every one should buy one, only if its the sport version.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

fuel cost

Good Quality All Round, Pleasure To Drive — quicker than most cars on acceleration, handling superb, braking system superb but calipers tend to seize with intense heat or adverse weather. Good sturdy build quality, starts regardless of any weather or temperature daily won't fail to start,100% reliability. 1.8i sport alloy wheels as standard, full electric xtras but can be expensive if only used on local runs, maintenance very average usual wear & tear. Fun car to drive, quick to move confident on corners and an ABS system that is very responsive. Quality engineering!!!

Pros

treat them mean and keep Them clean

Cons

Watch out for wetcarpets in the passenger footwells as the windscreen seals fail.

There Alright .... — The only fault with this car is the lack of steering, full lock just doesn't cut the musturd in this modern day land that we all live in , however that was over compensated for with massive traction the long chasiss provides adequate cornering for a mid range family saloon (in 99),strange for nissan to fit hgh end Lucas calliper's and pistons on all four's but then again that the car is only flat at the bottom end of the gearbox once the twin cam's are winding e,g motorways the car does eventually pik up to 125 mph with 2 people in more than what the book says and still very respectable for a 1.6i 16v - i have a freind with a peugoet 306 2.0 gti and even he couldn't believe how much it did keep up with him , eventually falling into clouds of dust and fog.

Sandri's Sr20 — This is my everyday driver! It has a 2 liter SR20 motor, which has loads of power, also done small mods to the motor, The car is a very expensive car to try find parts for, it is an awesome car to drive, loads of power and grip to satisfy a persons need for a fun enjoyable car with loads of space!

Pros

Power , handling , running costs , MPG , relaibility , build quality

Cons

Can be slightly mundane to some , interior slightly drab

55

Quick , Corners Well , Relaible , Cheap To Run! — Overlooked and underestimated! Want a cheap Jap performace car , then take a look at one of these. Comes with infamous SR20DE engine , multi-link suspension setup all round Its quick , loves being thrown into corners at speed and still gets 40+ to the gallon if your light footed Has a subtle bodykit , not OTT! Suspension was tuned at the Nurburgring This is a true Drak horse from Nissan , a well kept little secret
