Nissan 200 SX 2.0 Touring 2d (1997/R) - Owner Review

Great handling and lots of sideways on tap, if you're that way inclined, but beware, it will catch you out when you least expect it! Great in the outside lane of the motorway, very aggressive looking front end on the S14A and people do move over for you!

Nissan 200 SX (94-01)

Value

4 out of 5

There are some good examples still to be found with decent mileage for not a lot of money.

Costs

3 out of 5

Not cheap to service and parts are expensive from main dealer, i.e. £150 for a headlight, as you can't just buy the glass! Thirsty if driven hard, but aren't all cars?

Performance

5 out of 5

Nothing will catch it for the money, 200bhp, 150mph, rear wheel drive, enough said!

Reliability

4 out of 5

I blew turbo gaskets when i first got it, most probably had a sunday driver before me! Since then no probs, bullet proof springs to mind, touch wood again!

4 out of 5

I've debagged mine, lots of people dont know what it is or they think its a Skyline which is not a bad thing. Not many around so it does turn heads, as long as they dont see the back, as its ugly!

Comfort

4 out of 5

Quite a firm ride but comfy on long motorway journeys. I've done the M6 top to bottom on many occasions in it, and no back ache!

Problems

Bodywork
Car parking dents from other drivers doors are a nightmare as they dont have any protective strips down the side.

Engine
I've been advised, they all weep a bit of oil out the crank seal including my own and its nothing to worry about.

Gearbox
No probs.
