    It's Been A Faithful And Reliable Means Of Transportation. — Should've had a manual transmission. The automatic is geared far too conservatively for a reputedly 'sporty' car. Launches from standing are slow; but for passing on the highway, it gears down neatly and propels you around slower traffic sharpish. Braking and handling are v. good - but this should be expected from most Japanese sport compacts. As a 'Tuner', this car is not really popular material: Supercharging is not an option unless you can make one from scratch. Turbocharging is possible, though surprisingly, despite the popular SR-20 DOHC engine, there's really only one kit on the market for this car; and at $3-4 grand; it's just not worth it. Another 'Tuner' note: Aside from a nifty pair of vented front quarter panels on the market, the body/mod kits out there tend to be the height of cheese. Save your money - the body looks about as good as it's going to. Extremely good build quality; this car is 15 years old, with no rattles or squeaks. However, the car does tend to embody the sedate styling typical of Nissan's mid-90's: generally well-proportioned with clean, flowing lines - but not a really a head-turner. Rear deck spoiler is a nice touch. Interior is slightly better than the standard entry-level fare in the Import Market, but the tape deck is showing it's age! Factory stance could be improved by lowering the front suspension by 1 1/2 inches - though it would have to be done properly to preserve the handling characteristics. Cost of ownership - this car gets good mileage but only if you drive it conservatively. It's very low maintenance with high quality mechanical components through-out. No weak spots come to mind. I recently had to replace the alternator, but I really should've replaced the battery about a year before that! Fun Factor: Meh - it's ok.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's cost - effective and very reliable.

    Cons: Parts can sometimes be tricky to obtain for older Nissan products - not like Honda or Toyota.

    Wicked To Drive. — Well built car to handle spirited driving and track. Interior is clean and basic. The exterior is meant to look OEM. Low cost of ownership except needs 93 octane. Fun to drive and its easy to make Hondas look slow.

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

    Pros: Its not a Honda.

    Cons: None

    Nissans Kick A$$! — Well got this car for $400 from a buddy in 09 it was a sad site. I've put about 2k in her to get her road worthy and omg was it ever worth it this car has got balls then again the JWT ECU, injen air intake, high port cams, and full exhaust doesnt hurt either.

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

    Pros: everything

    Cons: original condition

    Love It — my brake set-up is amazing. my acceleration is pretty good. its n/a but still quick. my brakes squeak but just cuz they are steel compound racing brakes. stock, this car is disgusting. it must be lowered significantly and get a different rear bumper i have a real tough time getting good mileage, but thats only because its impossible to keep my foot out of it. if i could do so, i could easily get about 22-25 city and i do get 30+ highway. car is a blast to drive.

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

    Pros: why not?

    Cons: 240's are faster

    Project 200sx — Bought this car back in Feb as a completely stock, automatic 200sx S14 Luxury. Replaced the wheels with something mildly better than stock and then the exhaust and air intake. The difference to performance was phenomenal! Anyway, long story short. Engine is now blown since it must have been overboosting (15psi on stock controller when it's supposed to be 7 out of the factory. No idea how that happened) and it seems like I've spun the bottom end. Lovely! So now it's my project car. Time to rebuild it bigger, stronger and better and get some real performance outta this puppy!

    Pros: The car's quick and nimble. I never needed an excuse to get behind the wheel and just go for a drive.

    Cons: It's not going at the moment since I broke it :(

    2005 Nissan 200sx — The 1.6 liter engine doesn't pack much of a punch, but it's beat a couple Hondas to the speed limit (that's all the faster I'll go). Gas mileage: Best 43mpg worst 33mpg (I don't drive easy) Total miles: 220,000 No major mechanical breakdowns. I replaced the brushes in the starter, and the battery aside from the normal maintenance parts. If you're 6 foot or taller avoid this car it's too small for you!

    Pros: Gas mileage

    Cons: Leg room, Head room

    Love My 200sx — Totally reliable. Great gas mileage. What it lacks in power it makes up for in effort. Definitely wish I went for the SE-R though. Totally easy to maintain and work on yourself. Looks good, but rather conservative styling. Interior is well made and holding together nicely, but is a rather bland place to be in. Can be a fun car if you drive it right.

    Pros: Reliable, economical, good build quality.

    Cons: Bland looks, lack of power, tiny alloy wheels.

    Best Low-budget Sports Car — The best car you can buy when on a budget and still want to have loads of fun. Looks great even after all these years, drives better than most modern hot hatches even in stock, easy upgradable to a porsche-killer level :) Just needs care, frequent oil changes etc. and it will reward you mightly.

    Pros: looks, performance, handling

    Cons: creature comfort, fuel consumption

    200sx Se-r — I have upgraded the interior to infiniti G20T seats and floor mats. It has a japanese spec SR20DE very responsive. The engine has several bolt on upgrades.

    Pros: Great performance

    Cons: Small brakes fade quickly, the ride hight is very tall, and the twist beam set up in rear.
