Smooth Ride — I love the space you get in this car. It sounds good when you have it working right. The clutch is not hard to learn and It usually shifts easily. So far the only down side has been the amount of money that iv put into it so far but this is to be expected due to the age of the car. All in all its a very nice car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of space, good speed and comfortable.

Cons: Needs a lot of new parts

Buy If You Dont Need Height To Get In And Out — When I totalled it, (rolled 4+times) I walked away with a few scratches. From the outside the car looked flat, but inside, the cab was ok. Looked great, great gas mileage. Would definatly buy a nissan again anyday. Wonder what thier vans are like? if they have any?

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Safety

Cons: low to ground

Served Me Well. — We bought this car from a crash restoration dealer, but you could never tell by looking at it. It was a great little practical car. It did its job, transporting people and their stuff, extremely well, but that's it. With a weak little 1.6L engine and old econo-tires, it wasn't much for thrills, and its appearance was just about as boring and generic as one can imagine. Same with the interior. I completely neglected the care of this car, often going 12,000 miles without an oil change, and it never let me down. Plus, it turned out nearly 40 mpg! I was greatly saddened when a teen driver ended its life by rear-ending me on the freeway.

Pros: Great reliability and fuel economy.

Cons: Boring.

Not Much Class But Great On Gas — I bought my car from a friend for practically nothing. It runs very well for its age. Its been through a lot cosmetically..ie hit by a uhaul van, broken into numerous times (terrible neighborhood) and some crazy cycling days. It gets great mileage though which makes it worth every penny in these ridiculous times. I love my car...though I'd trade it any day for a SLR McLaren.

Pros: Low maintanance and lots of miles per tank

Cons: dents dents dents

Ugly, Small... But It Works... — The exterior is gly, my old 1995 B13 was better designed. the interior is better, but still small. The engine is good, not fast but I have given a lot of miles without much maintenance.

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Alternator is hard to change, suspension is horrible.

An Overall Good, Reliable Car — its a good car, very reliable, just got it from my dad who has drove it for 10 years now, and it still runs great. anti-freeze leaks here and there, but nothing too bad.

Pros: it gets really good  mpg

Cons: it needs a paint job, not too bad, but could use it
