Nissan 200 SX (94-01)

Value

5 out of 5

For the money (second-hand), nothing comes close.

Costs

2 out of 5

Thirsty, with frequent service intervals. Nissan part extortionate. Can easily turn into a money pit if you start modifying.

Driving

5 out of 5

A superb driver's car, but be very careful in the wet.

Performance

5 out of 5

Fast as standard. Free flowing exhaust and filter plus a boost controller turns it into a supercar.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Generally good. Fuel pump, turbo gaskets and intercooler pipework will all need fixing between 60-100k. Regular oil and filter changes are crucial.

Image

I love the looks, and only enthusiasts know what the car is, which is great.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Comfy in the front, with all the toys you need. Good sized boot, too.

Security

4 out of 5

Cat 1 alarm and immobiliser fitted as standard. Anonymity and rarity helps, too.

Service

1 out of 5

I have only used specialists for servicing. Helpful owner's club.

Problems

Bodywork
Not the most durable. Thin paint and panels.

Engine
Blowing turbo gaskets. VVT sprocket rattles on start-up, but this is normal, and nothing to worry about

Gearbox
Fine.

Other
Headlamp washers and aircon have both packed up.
