Summary:

A sport car with 250000 miles. Nissan did it

Faults:

The check engine light turned on. I fixed it for $150.

The fuel pump died. Fixed with a refurbished part for $370.

General Comments:

When I bought this car with 244000 miles, I thought first I made a big mistake.

But the car has been extremely reliable for such mileage. I have had it for a year and half now and I am still very satisfied.

Otherwise, the performance of the car is really amazing.

The car does not leak any fluid.

The 2.4L engine is still in a good condition except the timing chain, which is going to give up very soon. A shame I'm asked around $1000 to change it. If it had been more affordable, I would have fixed that for sure...

Summary:

A nice and fun car to drive

Faults:

2 fuel injectors were replaced when I received the car.

Alternator belt had to be replaced.

Digital speedometer in hud edition.

General Comments:

This is a nice car, but if you do have this car, you should install some performance parts. I installed an intake, a strut bar and a new exhaust and it is a whole lot more fun to drive it.

Some people say that this car is slow, but it can beat a whole lot of cars if you know how to drive it.

Summary:

I would buy it again

Faults:

Transmission seal.

Fuel injectors (all 4).

A/C compressor.

Clutch.

Master cylinder.

Other high mileage normal stuff (clutch, alternator, water pump).

General Comments:

This was a great car. It was extremely reliable, fun to drive because it's rear-wheel drive and handles well. It was bad in the snow and rain.

The engine could have used a bit more horsepower, but the 5 speed helped.

Parts tend to be expensive.
