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!!
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
