Nissan 200 SX (94-01)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Nothing. It's a Nissan.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
"A Nissan?, how reliable, practical is it?" chorkle, chorkle

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, definitely, but it's worth taking the time to find a good one. Would gladly replace it with it's successor, the 350Z.

What are you likely to buy next?
Something even quicker. Will have to be an M3 or an RS2/4 though...

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Funtastic. So much more potent than the statistics suggest. It's forgiving and rewarding at the same time. Full leather, all electrics, air-con, AND fun on a track day.

What's it like to park?
A doddle.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The only thing to fail has been the backlight on the rear de-mist light. There's four switches in the centre column, each one with an individual back light that you can't replace the bulb on.

What's most practical about your car?
Pace and handling from something that looks so dull.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
200 bhp at the rear wheel of such a light (comparatively speaking with modern) car, 200ft.lb torque and Japanese reliability.
