1990 Nissan 240SX SE 2.4L 4 cylinder gasoline from North America
Before I purchased the car:
Master cylinder replaced.
Things I have replaced:
Core temp. sensor.
Front brake rotors and pads.
Front tension rods.
Fuel line between fuel filter and steel line (cheap fix, new piece of neoprene line and hose clamps)
This car is great for a teenager. Excellent handling and reliability with a bulletproof motor.
Though there is a slight amount of vibration between the crankshaft and the rods, it will be sometime before it becomes a significant problem.
Though I must say that it does take some tender care driving this car in the snow and rain. It can come around on you quite quickly if there is wheel spin.
My catalytic converter is beginning to rattle and will need to be replaced one day, but that $600 repair can wait until my next emissions date.
Once I complete a few more general repairs I do hope to add some aftermarket parts. If anyone has a suggestion for a nice exhaust system please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
This car has ran great for me. I strongly suggest Mobil 1 every 3000 and premium gas on every fill-up as the car does call for a minimum of 91 octane. Spending a little now will save you a lot in the long run.
I love my car and hope to keep it going strong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Great Car if you treat it right! I have had my 90' 240 since brand new. That's right, 200,220 miles later on the same engine and tranny. Some minor repairs, like Master Cyl, Starter (last month!) A/C and a couple of fuel lines. As for after market, new TC Rods, Springs, Struts and bushings all around make the car as smooth as mile one! You can find great replacement parts on EBAY! Found the sport 7 spoke rims and tires for $100 to replace the old plastic covered steel rims! Also, I take it to the dealer, that's right, the dealer every 15000 and 30000 miles for the factory scheduled maintenance plan... you need proof... how about 200,000 miles and still smooth!!
