1987 Nissan 200SX XE Coupe 2.0 L non-turbo from North America
Best car I ever owned... my buddy for life
Door panels are starting to crack due to age.
Brake calipers starting to stick (originals still on the car).
Rear coil springs have started to sag.
Inner fender cover on the driver's side of the engine compartment is rotting out.
Front seats have lost a bit of support over the years.
Great on gas (currently getting 32MPG highway).
Regular maintenance has saved me thousands of dollars over the years.
Mostly all original down to parts, and electronics.
Still has the original transmission, engine, and suspension (except shocks).
Very inexpensive to maintain, however some parts are now becoming unavailable through normal channels.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have the SE model (V6) and I bought it new off of the showroom and still have it 175,000 miles later. Regular oil changes and tune ups have kept her in good shape. I am now looking to get a new car after fourteen years. I only hope that I can find a car just as reliable.

It is now 2008. I still have my 87 200sx. I managed to put 385,000 kilometers before having to rebuild the engine. It is now my summer car and the car still turns a few heads for those who don't know what type of car it is. Can't beat the classic look. Those of you who still have a 200sx in your life, keep cruising. They are fun to drive.
