Definitely Worth It — It was quick, cheap, and got the job done. even stock I had fun at the track, and on the normal days it could take me as far as I needed to go. I had the 5 speed, so that made it even more of a blast. Good first car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: parts were cheap and good gas mileage

Cons: wish it was faster

Fun Car To Drive And Own. — i love this little car. its not the fastest thing in the world but it definitly is fun to drive. my advice is to spend the money and make surte you get the 2.0L model or get the previous gerneration with the 2.0L motor

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

Pros: fun car

Cons: its not the 2.0L version

It Has Been The Best First Car Ever!!! — 260 thousand miles and still gets 40 miles to the gallon!!! It still has the original clutch and has had very little work done to it. It's just a 4cylindar so it doesn't have the best pick-up but it's been an awesome car!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great mileage

Cons: It's a two door, not a good family car.

200sx — Great car. Base sr20de n/a motor is a great starter and . hands down quick, but a swap to a sr20 Blue Bird is amazing. Couple that with a VE headswap and you have a wicked fun car. Not too expensive and no one sees it coming, much less obvious then most tuner cars. There is a definite lack of after market parts how ever but the challenge is part of the fun of owning this car.

Pros: Quick out of the box and only gets better

Cons: Hard to find after market parts

Quick One — Great setup right off the go for autocrossing... the only hting i really dislike about owning this car is the lack of aftermarket parts... it never got out as much as the civics (even though it is a much faster car) and it takes a little searching around to find good parts.

Pros: performance, comfort, affordability

Cons: lack of aftermarket parts

My 200sx — I bought a nissan 200sx,exrace stock, a few mods but looked pretty standard. It set me back 21,000 on finance. The car was a dream to own low maintance costs and high performance what more can I say loved that car I will buy another just next time i will pay cash.

Pros: great car

Cons: standard turbo not too good
