One of Nissan's finest


Air conditioner unit has seized, was bad when I got the car.

General Comments:

Excellent car for the family or for the performance. 205HP at 6400rpm out of a front engine, rear wheel drive sedan is very impressive.

Easily modifiable, I have totally replaced the exhaust with HKS goods, traded plugs with HKS racing plugs, added a Greddy VVC and had the computer re-mapped.

Also full suspension upgrades, this car handles superbly.

All that out of a 12 year old automobile.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi there,

I was wondering if you could please help me on my little issue. I have a 1988 Nissan Cefiro and I was wondering what type of body kits will fit it. As I am looking to put one on my car. Lora.
