Fun Little Car For A Single Person, Get The 5 Spd And You'll Love It — Fun little car, not too much to say, bought it fairly cheap cuz I needed a good college car and this looked just right. Had a blast driving it when it worked, even though it was an automatic. The inline 4 cyl 2.4L engine was peppy as all get out and was just happy to be alive and running. Sold eventually because I wanted a 4 door car and was tired of spending money on a car that was automatic and that I knew I would eventually get rid of.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty and handled great, plenty of mods available, and looks awesome

Cons: Backseat pointless, fuel economy could've been better

Favorite Car I Have Ever Driven! — The acceleration/torque is excellent. 240's are quick off the line regardless of whats put into them. No matter what body style of the 240 you have its guaranteed to turn heads! Nissan 240sx are infamous for their "timing chain" problem where you can hear a very faint rattling noise coming from the engine, but besides that the car's engines are built like tanks so very reliable. I give this car a 5 out of 5 on how fun it is to drive with the rear wheel drive theres no real limit to what this car can do.

Pros: There's no reason you shouldn't want this car!

Cons: Rear-Wheel Drive if that is a problem to you

If I Didn't Live In The "artic Circle" I Would Be Driving This Car Every Moment, Every Day. — Fours across the board! Performance seems great until you install performance suspension and strut tower braces... now you can corner a 85 deg turn at 110 without breaking anything loose... its crazy! But as a base model, not bad. Infamous for rust in the *right spots* (frame). Easy fix if you can weld. Simple interior makes this compact seem spacious. I have a lack for cup holders in my life. This car has been transformed to girlie (as girlie as I am willing to go) so appearance will be pleasing to some, but not all. Great mileage, even with turbo set-up. Definently fun to drive!! The base would make a great beginners car, but I wouldn't suggest any upgrades for the faint hearted/inexperienced driver.

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

Pros: Its what I've always wanted... ummm... good crash test rating (for the early 90's)

Cons: ummmmm.... if you don't like it, avoid it. lol

Cheap! — I got my car for $650 on craigslist and it started out with thin primer gray paint and orange in the door jams and hood. I painted it flat black, not knowing that 2 weeks after my hood would fly up going 70.. Alot of work needs to be done to her..

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

Pros: 5 speed

Cons: gas!

No Abs.. No Traction Control.. Lots Of Fun — Tons of fun to drive. Picked it up for $800. KA24E, 5 speed trans. lots of rust but a strong motor. Came with a circuit sports 3 inch catback. Custom made rear lower quarter repair panels, rear left subframe rail, under hood structural support, passenger rear floor, and a minor spot on the trunk lid. Lots left to do still. With the addition of a pacesetter header theres much more low end torque. Makes holding it sideways a bit easier. Infiniti Q45 brakes up front to keep it cool coming down Mount Greylock. Plans to come : t3/t4 turbo 650cc injectors & fuel rail walbro fuel pump meth injection AMS engine rebuild Nistune ecu cobra MAF aluminum radiator Godspeed coilovers Godspeed swaybars, camber arms, toe arms, tension rods z32 rear brakes L28 oil pump limited slip diff Lots of drifting...

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

Pros: It'll be the only boosted SOHC KA around here.. and it weighs 2700 pounds

Cons: rust..

I Bloody Love It — The single cam engine leaves a lot to be desired. It is fairly peppy, and loves corners. It gets fairly good gas mileage without loosing the entertainment. It consistently rattles no matter what all I fix. but I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's fun

Cons: it's lacks power

Best Inexpensive Rwd Platform With Independant Suspension — Rwd, lightweight, and independent suspension make this car a great car to build up its a great platform to build upon with lots of potential! these cars can be made fun and fast to drive and there are many asthetic things u can do to the vehicle

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

Pros: why not?

Cons: if u dont like nissan or rwd cars

Its Not As Fast As My Fc, But It Makes Up For It Fun To Driver Her Every Day — it handles vary well stops quick but lacks power and could use a lsd, all things that could be fixed with aftermarket parts but i just bought an 88 fc3s so odds are she isnt going to be getting shiny new parts any time soon, although you never know. id love to see it get a sr20det and a lsd that would make it better then the fc(for now)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun To Drive,

Cons: When it gets wet out it gets "fun" to drive
