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

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
