A Highly Reliable And Efficient Car — Very reliable. Braking and handling is good. Great gas efficiency. Easy to maintain with low cost. Fun to drive. I feel safe and in control driving it. A comfortable car. I owned it for more than 6 years, and would like to buy a new Nissan Sentra.

Pros: Great Gas efficiency. Comfortable to drive. Reliable. Low cost on maintenance.

Cons: Not sure.

Economic But Not Fun — too slow, speakers suck, suspension is waaay too loose. very cheap to drive because gets great mpgs. fair amount breaks often though. wires arent very durable and can be easily broken . clutch is horrible. heats up fast and gets very sticky.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great mpgs

Cons: performance

Sweet — no power, Front wheel drive sucks, at least its a manua,l the car has sick potential though, its a great day to day driving around car cause of the ridiculouse gas prices, fun enough to drive sticks to the road really good

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cause ur out of cash and cant afford insurance or gas

Cons: dont buy it if ur a power freak or if u have the money to get better

Good First Car. — I just previously bought this car. It has a few dents, but it looks like a wellkept car, I feel safe in it. The handling is really great, easy around corners and curves. The brakes were just replaced so its pretty easy on the brakes. Acceleration isn't that great, it's just a get around car, not a get up and go car. Fun to drive! Great mileage and easy maintenance.

Pros: Great mileage

Cons: No tachometer.

Best Car I've Ever Owned. Hey, At Least It Runs Better Than Anything I've Ever Owned! — Performance is alright for a 4 banger. It needs a few minor repairs to the body (dumass ran into it with a golf cart). No AC and it has an oil leak, love the exterior color! It's my little Green Dragon!

Pros: It's got a lot of get up and go for a 4 banger!

Cons: The AC went out.  That's not fun in Texas!

Nice Car — Not a bad car and it gets great gas mileage. The acceleration could be better but overall good performance. After awhile, the tires needed replacement and the vent motor only works on high.

Pros: Great Lifespan

Cons: Small Engine

Can't Kill It — I've owned this one since new, other than regular oil changes, it's had an oil seal, starter, exhaust work, brakes & just recently the wipers need a new transmittion. Not a bad record for a ten year old car. Super on gas. The body is starting to go around the rear fenders & I have well over 250.000km & it still runs great.l

Pros: gas mileage

Cons: Small

Xe With The Se Kick — I have the XE which had the 1.6 underpowered motor in it. But I swapped it out with the 2.0 motor with more power. Overall very satisfied with the car

Pros: Good enough get up and go.

Cons: Better transmission needed

Great For Tuning. — Very tunable, and with minor modifications, it handles like a dream. Performance was meager but adequate with the 1.6L motor, but fuel economy made up for the lack of zip. With the SR20DET however, it is simply a blast to drive! Please note that my categorized ratings are for the stock vehicle, *not* my highly modified one.

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

Pros: Everything but styling

Cons: Not the prettiest car when stock.
