1994 Nissan Sunny ARX 1.4 petrol


Small, lovely jet


I bought this car second hand. I got it as a replacement car, when my AX was being fixed. I liked it so much I switched my AX GTi for this sporty version of the Sunny.

Battery (the original that came with the new car) broke in 2000.

Besides that nothing wrong, nothing had to be replaced!!

General Comments:

Compared to a Citroen AX GTi, this car flies!!! The engine is so powerful. Even in the lower rev-range, you still have all the revs you need. Needless to say, overtaking is not a single problem for this car.

Maybe the suspension is just a bit too stiff. Although I can imagine some people who would like this. Personally, I think it's just too stiff for me.

The car easily transports 4 grownups (it's a 3 door Sunny) and you still have room for some hand luggage.

The truck is also quite big for a 3 door car.

The only thing I can think of that might be a turn-off, would be the fact that the car is damn ugly when it isn't fitted with a back-spoiler that "lengthens" the roof. At least I think so, seeing the rear window is bent near the top.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1991 Nissan Sunny LX 1.4


Sometimes the engine falls out (even while driving, not only not in gear!) This could be due to bad fuel (but then why does it remain after putting in cleaning stuff in the carburator?)? Anyway, if that is the cause, our dealer doesn't seem to be able to get it really fixed, and the car is too vulnerable for this. If the cause is electrical, same remark!

For the rest, it's OK! Starts up very easy.

I bought this car second hand.

Bringing it to the Nissan dealer for oil change... is much costs much more than for our Mazda 626! The back light wasn't in stock when I needed a new one (old one got broken in a small accident). Because the dealer is very friendly, I still give him a 4/10.

Luxury? OK, the car is very silent. But it misses suspension comfort (it's a 5 door; 3 door Sunny seems better): any bump in the road is felt! Steering is extremely heavy.

For a 1.4, it's fast.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
