One of the most reliable cars


Changed timing belt.

Fixed alternator (90€).

Clutch bearing.

General Comments:

A bit slow, specially climbing.

Very cool to drive.

Great gear box.

Excellent strong, reliable engine.

The dash has all the info needed.

This car will go on forever if you just take a little care for it.

It will even keep on going with damaged parts.

The only similar cars are the Mercedes series 124.

I have heard and seen some of these models doing 1.500.000 km without opening the engine.

It´s just a headache when we need parts that only Nissan has! (they do not sell... they simply steal money from you!!!) It´s outrageous!!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
