    Great Car, If You Have A Mechanic When Something Goes Wrong. — I had the B12 Edition fastback. The 87 was a sporty car, with a removable sunroof, and great speaker placement for the radio. It sat low, and handled the mountainous roads of Virginia expertly. Working on the car is a big hassle, though, as there are WAY too many vaccuum hoses.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great looking, fast, and very fun to drive.  Dependable.

    Cons: Interior was a little cheap.  Hard to work on.

    Car? — Nice small car uses little fuel. with a little fixing up could be a really sweet ride. good speakers for being stock, and for being 22 years old. the car is really light so if you put a 350 in it she will go zoom zoom.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its good on gas, and has decent speed

    Cons: kinda slow for my taste, a few more hundred hourse power would be nice

    My Love — I bought my 87 nissan xe salvaged in 91. Loved this car it had a great ride to it and was very dependible. I put around 50 or 60 grand on it and had no problems other than brakes. Went through the pads all the time. Right around the time I sold it the # 2 cyclinder was melting the plug end off. I have no mechanical experiance but it went for another few thousand after sold to a freind for 500 bucks. I really miss that car it was a good car.

    Pros: looks and ride

    Cons: burned plus and brakes

    Great Mileage, Good Steering, Poor Acceleration, Great In The Snow — Nissan built a part time XE 4WD Sentra wagon in 1987 with a 67hp carbureted 1.6L. In 1988, they slapped on throttle body fuel injection and bumped output to a blistering 69hp. In 1989 a new full time AWD system was added to the XE 4WD Sentra wagon and paired it to a frisky 90hp 12v 1.6L I-4 in 1989. Quiet, comfortable and capable - most don't even know this car exists.

    Pros: High MPG, unstoppable in the snow.

    Cons: No AC, no tach, no power to pass on the Coquilhalla - but strong enough to finish the 800km Thunderbird Rally.

    An Awesome Daily Driver — Super fun little car to fulfill all of your daily driving needs. This car will always get you to where you need to go. About 25 mpg. Carbureted 1.6 liter 4 cylinder. Makes about 60 or so horsepower. I love this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's an awesome car that'll do more than you expect.

    Cons: This car is so great in every aspect. I can't think of anything negstive to put down here.

    Nelly The Nissan — After giving my truck away to try and help a friend, I bought this from my brother-in-law for about $500. It burned a quart of oil a week and had some front end damage. However, this thing was a beast. I drove it for over 4 years. As long as you put a quart of oil a week in her, she just kept going. This car probably had more memories than any other car I had. Probably because I drove it at the end of my high school career and all through my college career. At that point in my life I just needed something cheap to get me to school and work. I think everyone road in the Nissan at one point or another. She finally died when I went through a huge puddle and shorted out the ECU computer that mounted under the passanger side seat. Yes, there were holes in the floor boardes, but the carpet covered them. Overall, I will never forget Nelly the Nissan for she did me good at a critical time of my life. RIP Nelly. LOL
