1992 Nissan 100NX 1.6 carb 16v petrol from UK and Ireland

Year of manufacture1992
Engine and transmission 1.6 carb 16v petrol
Performance marks 7 / 10
Reliability marks 9 / 10
Comfort marks 7 / 10
Running Costs (higher is cheaper) 4 / 10
Overall marks (average of all marks)
6.8 / 10

Faults:

Catches holding the parcel shelf have broken 3 times. The engine occasionally appears to 'miss' when accelerating gently, could be a carburettor problem but have yet to have it diagnosed. Drivers electric window makes a funny noise but works fine.

General Comments:

Nice car to look at, performance of the carburettor model combined with the 'cat' isn't amazing. Insurance is also high (group 12) for a 1.6 litre. However it is very reliable, smooth and a little bit different.

Faults:

Looking at the other reviews it seems everyone has the air con lever sticking. Mine was OK but now is broken.

Fuel economy is terrible 20-25mpg at the moment. Have been into dealer and everything is OK. Nothing I can do!

Rear parcel shelf hangers have broken off. DO NOT lose the roof bag, it is expensive and hard to get hold of.

General Comments:

Excellent drive, except economy, will not sell this car as I know I will miss it if it goes.

I have had my Nissan better known as BANANA by my children, for obvious reasons for 5 months now.

Barely missed out on parts for it several times.

I would like to do the few things it needs doing.

IE: drivers seat has small hole in and catches on clothes, drivers window motor has gone, and would like the original alloys for it too.

I have yet to find another yellow one.

No major problems as yet, but the person I bought it off had it from new and brought it over from living in Hong Kong!!

Love driving it and hope it keeps me going for sometime.

1992 Nissan 100NX 1.6 16V injection from Austria

Faults:

Just the normal problem with the air conditioning lever and a small problem with a small rubber placed in the right side of the cockpit. If it falls out you'll hear the engine inside like it's a V8. If you don't care about the the rubber at the side windows you'll get wet at heavy rain.

General Comments:

A great car. I lift off the T-Bar whenever I can see a little bit of the sun.

General Comments:

Very nice, easy to drive car, fast for a 1.6 engine.

Looks great, with and without the Targa roof. Almost nothing wrong with it.

When driving without the the Targa Roof, the car gets a little unstable.

1992 Nissan 100NX SLI 1.6i 16v twin cam petrol from UK and Ireland

Reliability marks 9 / 10
Comfort marks 9 / 10
Dealer Service marks 7 / 10

Faults:

Air circulation switch is stuck.

When braking the car doesn't always want to follow the drivers mind.

General Comments:

This is a car that you will love from the beginning. It is supplied with a T-Bar, which is excellent in the summer and ideal in the winter. So you will have only the advantages of a convertible.

Best of all, it looks & drives great.

Disadvantages:

- uses a lot of gas

- When driving without the roof, a hurricane will go through your car when driving faster than 80 km/h. This will result in a harder to control car.

Advantages:

- No engine sound inside

- Good engine sound outside

- looks nice

- drives great

- T-BAR

- Reliability

Faults:

Bad dynamo, had it replaced. No problem after that.

Air inlet (switch to choose between fresh air intake and recirculation of the air inside the car). Had this fixed for three times now. Broke down every time after a few days. Gave up hope, let it be....:-)

Rear suspension. Just one of them went bad. Replaced it. No problem after that.

General Comments:

This is the finest car I have had in my life! It looks nice, it runs nice and it feels nice..... What more do I want?

The only thing..... it's a bit thirsty!

But then, that's my problem. Because I'm an agressive driver....
