1990 Nissan 180SX Review
Best Bang For The Buck. — I bought this car because my weekend warrior was in the pits. I needed a car for school, and this car was crazy cheap. Performance wise its a blasty. The acceleration is smooth, the ride on the top speed is nice; however, since I did buy it from someone else and the price was cheap, there were many fixes that needed to be done. The shocks/springs needed to get replaced, the headlights need to get realigned, need to get a new hood, need to replace some lights around the car, and the steering wheel needs to be aligned. Appearance wise, the car is sleek, with of course its dings and dents here and there, but its still fun to drive, and that's all that matters. As for the cost of ownership, the avg mileage is 20-22 and the maintenance is fairly middle to high because its an 18 yr old car. But I love her, and that's all that matters.
Pros: Cheap, Fun, Quick.
Cons: Can be high maintenance because of its age.
