    Great Car To Have And Own. — I give this car a overall 4 out of 5 stars based on it's aftermarket support, Exceptional handling platform. Easy to enjoy and well rounded, Only true downside is the car is severely underpowered, While it remained underpowered it was still and excellent driving platform.

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

    Pros: The styling, Handling, overall car.

    Cons: Power, Backseats, Stock engine.

    Kouki 240sx — Nissan should have never stopped making these cars. They have amazing suspensions that are suitable for several different styles of racing. The aftermarket support for these cars is incredible. In America these cars were underpowered, having only a naturally aspirate 2.4L, but that left room for some amazing power once turbo'd. Not to mention the infinite number of easy engine swaps for instant dominance on the street.

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

    Pros: Engine swaps, suspension, rare

    Cons: base model so no lsd, 4 lug, and 2.4L from factory

    240sx S14 Is The Shizzle! — This car can do anything. I mean ANYTHING. I can drift, drag, auto-x, etc. The way it looks is just drooling sexy. The way she hugs the floor on turns and such, mmm perfect. The feel of her when i shift through gears.. it's something out of the ordinary.

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

    Pros: The way it sits.

    Cons: want a bit more power

    Slick S14 — Its gonna haul ass, it pulls hard and stops on a dime, the quality of the build is top notch, very nice interior and a nice pearl white paint job, gets 30+ mpg when ur not spooin up the turbo. It is sick to drive and no u cannot

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

    Pros: Love my Nissan

    Cons: It needs a tune

    Excellent Car For The Enthusiast — The car is excellent to drive. It needs an SR20DET, but it is fun to drive none the less. It is a beautiful car and it is easy to work on. The mileage is alright, but that is probably a symptom of my right foot more than anything.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Rear wheel drive!

    Cons: Stiff ride

    240sx — Well. My 240 is quite an amazing Car. Pros-good handling, killer looks, good kids car, lots of torque. Cons-underpowered, needs maintenance kind of a lot, not that good on gas (or at least not how i drive it). I'm a 240SX lover, though, so none of this phases me. :D

    Pros: good handling, killer looks, good kids car, lots of torque.

    Cons: underpowered, needs maintenance kind of a lot, not that good on gas (or at least not how i drive it)

    Good Car, To Bad They Dont Still Make Them — From the factory the stock 240 is pretty weak in power and brakes. with the addition of the j-spec sr20det motor, 4 piston brakes, and stiffer suspension the car is awesome and has been a great car to drive. This is my second s14 240sx and although i love the car, it will be the last 240 i own due to the fact it is getting out dated.

    Pros: good foundation for a great car

    Cons: US spec car is very weak compaired to the J-spec. why no turbo!

    Nissan S14 S40sx — This car handles great, could use more power, but that's easily fixed. I bought it to do autocross and track days, and have been suprised at how much I like it. Honestly, it far more solid than any other low cost Japanese car I've had. 10 years old, 130,000 miles, 3 owners and going strong! If you're looking for a RWD, read: RIGHT Wheel Drive =), coupe this is a great car. I can't even think of another cheap rear wheel drive sport compact, not any that would be at all practical anyway.

    Pros: Made by the people who brought you the Fairlady Z and Skyline GTR.  Enough said.

    Cons: Could use a little more power, as in turbo or Japanese Domestic Market engine swap (sr20det)

    Wow — I love this car so much. I would take a bit more power but the handling is very good ! The built quality is almost perfect. Exterior have a unique look that I love. The interior is very nice too. But the LE trim whith the white leather is a lot better ! For the gas mileage, it is not economic but not too bad. I always run it with premium gas. For the fun factor, its the best quality on this car. I do drifting practice on the race track and have a lot of fun with this car ! Sorry for my poor english, I'm french !

    Pros: Handling, Built Quality, appearance exterior/interior, Fun Factor

    Cons: Need a bit more power, body pieces are hard to find.
