1992 Nissan 240SX SX 2.4 DOHC from North America


A reliable and affordable beauty


Rust on rocker panels and under spoiler due to design flaws.

Had to replace the clutch (normal wear)

Bolts on the heat shields rusted out, I had to weld them back on.

Odd problem with rear brakes - pads warp easily.

General Comments:

A pleasure to drive, handles beautifully.

Quick tranny, almost too easy to peel out. Eats civics for breakfast.

Maintain your engine and she'll purr.

Sleek design still turns the ladies' heads even though the car is 11 yrs old.

Most of my rust problems were due to Canadian winters - salted roads.

Speaking of winter, never had a problem starting the car even when I forgot to plug her in at -30C.

I haven't had to put much money into this car other than regular tune ups and tires, etc. I have really enjoyed owning this car.

1992 Nissan 240SX SE Convertible, Limited Editio 2.4 liter from North America


This car straightens the curves and is the most fun I've had on four wheels


The transmission torque converter was rebuilt at 102,000 miles.

Timing chain cover and oil pan gaskets have seeped a little oil since I've owned the car.

The 17-inch tires wear out every 27,000 miles and are expensive.

General Comments:

This is a great handling sports car with a fantastic suspension that begs you to power through curves - real driving excitement!

The car is a real head turner and has drawn many compliments. Several people have asked, "What kind of car is that?"

The car has surprising acceleration and you can improve on the great stock performance if you must.

Front seats are low to the ground, but comfortable. Back seats have very little leg room, so there is little room for backseat drivers.

1992 Nissan 240SX Fastback (hatchback) 4 cylinder from North America


Best bargain mobile on road


Seats are starting to get worn down. Will add racing seats.

Parking brakes are worn down.

Tires wear - too much power to squeal and mark the road too often (purposely).

General Comments:

This is the best car that I have ever ridden in or owned.

Real fast and powerful!!! Nice body to cruise and sit next to the Vipers, Porsches, Dialbos, Corvettes; all will look good on the show floor!!!

Never will sell my Nissan 240SX hatch-fastback. Will keep it until it goes dead on me!!

A friend has a Nissan 1990 SX-SE with 300,000 miles, and it still runs like a baby!

1992 Nissan 240SX 2.4L I4 from North America


A low-priced, but high-performance sports car.


I have really not had any problems with the car so far.

General Comments:

You have to be careful when driving this baby in the rain. With a rear wheel drive and a stick, things can get a little slick.

When the engine is run hard, it omits a pretty foul odor.

Back seats have little to no leg room.

It comes with no power locks, windows, seats, mirrors, or cruise control. It also doesn't have ABS.

The car has extreme pick-up, especially with the manual tranny.

It handles corners like no other.

The ride stays smooth even at high speeds.

Great looking nose.

With the right wheels, it's a really impressive car.

My 240sx did come with power everything (except power seats), and cruise control. This is an amazing car. I feel like a million bucks when I drive it. (Mine is a convertible.)

1992 Nissan 240SX SE 2.4L from North America


Fast, classy, and unique all rolled into one


The 4th cylinder fuel injector died at 117,000 miles.

The heat shield rattled and was taken off.

General Comments:

This car is fast and fun. Rear wheel drive is a blast on twisty roads. You would never expect this much power from a four cylinder without a turbo. Plus it has plenty of torque. More than most four cylinders.

2.4 liters, it's as big as a v6.

It's perfect for after-market parts. The parts that I have added have been able to increase the little coupe's power to over 200hp.

Also this car is classy. It looks a bit like a Porsche. It even has a Heads Up display for the speedometer on the windshield.

Plus you never see another one on the road. And when you do, it is usually the hatchback and not the coupe. So it's very unique.

I love it and wouldn't give it up for anything. Well except maybe a Skyline GTR.

Hi there I bought a Nissan 240 too and I totally agree with what you were saying, I was just wondering what did you do to get all the your horse power over 200 and how much did it cost you. Thanks.

Ge the superchip, and a Cold Air Intake.

If you don't mind me asking how much did the upgrades cost you?i have just bought a ram air intake for my 240 and it cost me about $275. but I still want more power and I was looking into the Chip.
