    My First Baby — I like the low and mid range power from the torque, it is a five speed so it is quick. This car has very modest gas mileage. I have owned this car since 2006 and I can attest to at least 30- 34 miles to the gallon.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The quickness

    Cons: The basic styling of the car

    It Was Decent. — This was what I bought after having my first Talon. This was a decent car. It wasn't horribly slow and got 28 MPG. It had a very loud exhaust and ugly rims on it. Fun for the time being, but glad I sold it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Quick, MPG

    Cons: Reliability

    Nice To Have — love the car alot just wished there was parts available and was a little cheaper but overall a great car to have and the starting rated horsepower and torque isn't bad at all well the 02 has 180 hp and 180 torque but i think the new ones have 200 & 200 so i say nice

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

    Fun Car — The Nissan SER Spec-V had 180bhp with a 6 speed manual gear box. She would smoke the tires all the way to third gear and about 140mph. All kinds of fun to drive with seats from a R33 skyline and a nose from an R34 Skyline. The build quality wasn't bad, but the use of different materials would have been better.

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

    Pros: Nice power from an N/A motor and the six speed gear box.

    Cons: Can't really think of one.

    Good Car For Day To Day Driving — I have an automatic it's a little roomy, nice enough for a small family. Not as fuel efficient as a Honda Accord LX and definitely not my body choice. However it's a nice car to have for short - long distance trips, and carry friends around in.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Small family? Start with this car!

    Cons: If you are looking for flashy this is not the car for you.

    Why So Se-rious? — MMMM torque steer. After a new engine and 4-2-1 headers it goes like stink. Considering the last engine was scrap metal quality was ehh, but besides that built like a rock. Always fun thrown around in the twisties

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable, good handling

    Cons: electrical gremlins

    Spec V — Car handled great. Decent power. Wheel hop was annoying. Paint was okay. Stereo crapped out when it was about three years old. Rotors didn't want to come off for brake job. Six speed was good. Turbo would've been great. Wheels looked nice, but kind of heavy.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good looks

    Cons: Quality was a little cheap.

    Small And Speedy — What is there not to like about this car? 2.5 liter engine, with 170 ponies; easy to modify, and alot of fun to drive. I love this car and would only trade it in for more power. Fairly reliable, and decent mielage.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Needs more power
