Nissan 200 SX 2.0 Standard 2d (1996/N) - Owner Review

Still finding the limits (though not in the wet). Mine is modified, and I'm not yet as confident as in previous car (Porsche 944) although the Nissan is a lot quicker in a straight line.

Nissan 200 SX (94-01)

Value

5 out of 5

At 4-5 years old fabulous value. Let someone else have the 70% depreciation.

Costs

4 out of 5

Not much has gone wrong. Use a specialist to service it. Heavy on fuel if driven hard - 22-25 mpg.

Performance

5 out of 5

Mine is modified. Quicker than a Scooby in a straight line. Previous owner claimed he got 160 mph (in France).

Reliability

5 out of 5

Nothing has broken. Must service regularly with plenty of oil changes every 6k miles (I use Mobil 1).

Only petrol heads know what it is. Very discreet, doesn"t attract plod. Not in your face. Like the old Dolomite Sprint - a real wolf in sheep"s clothing.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Coupe, so low to ground and with hard suspension (modified) but I don"t want a limo. Plenty of room two-up. Noisy from exhaust; I have fitted soundproofing in boot area now - a lot better.

Not had it nicked. Guess I should invest in Tracker. Standard system is probably not that good.

Service

1 out of 5

Local dealer is expensive and barely adequate. Maybe OK if they are servicing a Micra…
