Nissan 200 SX 2.0 Touring 2d (1998/S) - Owner Review

Rear wheel drive, turbo + wet = too much time spent sideways and, yes, you do do it deliberatly at every opportunity. Very predictable when rear is in play :)

Value

5 out of 5

So much car for so little money. Definite second-hand bargain!

Costs

4 out of 5

Relatively inexpensive to service and maintain (as long as done as advised).

Performance

4 out of 5

Great handling. Steering adjustable with throttle, performance is great and very strong through out the rev range. Turbo lag is both anoying and one of the best features!

Reliability

5 out of 5

Only problem so far was weak gearbox syncro, but dealer sorted under warranty!

Very understated, but people get out of the way on motorways, which is nice ;)

Comfort

5 out of 5

Supprisingly supple for a fairly tight package.

Not had any issues, so wouldn't be able to tell you.

Service

After some initial niggles with getting the syncro sorted, they have been very helpful.

Problems

Bodywork
-

Engine
A cold start rattle, which after some investigation is a 'feature' of the SR20DET engine!

Gearbox
Weak syncro, but fixed under warranty and have had no problems since!

Other
Standard Yokohama tyres should be taken off immediatley - they are down right dangerous in the wet!
