1992 Nissan 240SX LE 2.4 from North America


This car is great still running strong and the only thing that bothers me is that I have a rattle sound on the front driver side wheel, I think its a bushing. Its hard to blow this engine, I rev it up to 8000 since I have no rev limiter and taken it up to 260 kms no speed limit either, this car is rock solid. Get it reprogramed to delete rev limiter and speed limiter and this car is a lifer.

1992 Nissan 240SX LE 2.4 4 cylinder from North America


The 240sx Convertible is my favorite car I own, and my favorite car I have ever driven.


The transmission filter needed changed at at 160,000 miles. None of the replacement filters being sold for this car at the parts store actually matched the filter that came on the car.

Rear wheel drive proves an interesting experience in this car when driven in the rain.

The seams in the top began rotting at 155,000 miles. They have since become quite a costly problem. The back window actually began to rip out whenever the top was up while I drove, and the windows were down at the same time. This has caused severe visual complications with the back window, and the blind spots are magnified because of this. The top has also began to leak as of about 162,000 miles.

People seem to have a fascination with stealing things from this particular car. Make sure it a convertible has a car alarm.

The backseat is very, very small. Although it doesn't stop people from wanting to ride with me everywhere.

This is not a major problem for most people, but the gas pedal is close to the wall of the floor board and this makes it feel crooked.

The door panels have almost come completely off of the doors.

General Comments:

This car is an amazing ride.

The problems I have listed for my car can all be fixed.

It hugs and grips corners, and curves.

It is beautiful, especially if the nose is well kept, and the paint is protected. Adding a nice set of wheels to the 240 convertible potentially makes it the most popular car around.

Also, my 240sx does have working power everything, and working cruise control.

1992 Nissan 240SX SE 2.4 IL from North America


A great car that is easy to maintain.


I had to replace the clutch at 100,000 from general wear.

Needed new timing belt around 90,000 as do most foreign automobiles.

Front right turn signal malfunctions inconsistently.

General Comments:

This car is wonderful.

It handles quite impressively and remains in control throughout the turns.

Beautiful exterior.

No room in backseat, but who really cares?

The car has amazing acceleration for it's size and specifications.

I have modified different parts of the engine on mine and the gas seems to be consumed a lot more rapidly than before, but before I was averaging a good 25 miles to the gallon.

I'm overall quite impressed with this car.

There is no timing belt on this engine, in this case it s a timing chain.

1992 Nissan 240SX SE 2.0L turbo from North America


An American Silvia; fast, classy, and unique


Very minor rust at the corner of the sunroof.

Seats are starting to show some wear and need to be recovered.

Replaced the suspension at 120,000 miles.

General Comments:

I replaced the original 2.4l KA24DE engine this past spring for the Japanese 2.0l turbocharged SR20DET engine. This engine is very fast. It feels like a new car.

Also the car is weighted better with the lighter engine up front, giving this rear-wheel drive coupe incredible handling.

The interior is very nice, though it is starting to show its age. But I will be replacing it soon with some nice Italian Leather which should give it a classy touch.

I love the exterior of this car. It looks a lot like a little Skyline. Especially with the black pin-stripping and the black strip around the car taken off. I would highly recommend doing this to your 240SX, it will update it a lot. Also the gunmetal 17 inch wheels look great.

This car with the Japanese engine is like no other. Where I live there are only about 6 including me with this done. That engine really turns the car into a beast.

I plan on never getting rid of my car. But then again, who would get rid of a 300hp, turbocharged, rear-wheel drive sports car anyways?

I am planing on getting the sr20det as well and I just wanted to know what mods did you do to get it to 300HP?

I feel the exact same way about getting rid of this car. It is just way to much fun to drive. Thought about doing sr swap, but decided I loved the torque of the ka way to much so I will turbocharging it up to 300 or so.;) Both are great motors though.
