A tight sports car feel!!

Faults:

The only thing that has gone wrong with the car is the stock CD player went on me at around 70000 miles but I upgraded to a new JVC cd player. the MPH gage is also off about 5 MPH also.

General Comments:

I think the Nissan 240 is a great buy. The car handles with the best of them. the pick up is also good with the 2.4 engine and the five speed. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants that nice tight sports car feel, but can also use the car everyday. I say go 240!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The MPH gauge could be off due to wrong tire size.

Summary:

A sporty yet refined ride for an individual or couple

Faults:

The tires wear unevenly due to the obvious flaws in the camber, but what do you expect for such great handling? Before my car was drivable, I had to replace all four tires.

The carpet on the inside has also worn a great deal, but that can be expected with the amount of time I spend in the car.

General Comments:

For as long as I have owned this car, I have been completely satisfied with every aspect of it. Nothing has broken or malfunctioned, and with regular scheduled maintenance, I expect to keep it running for another 100,000 miles.

The handling is exceptional, especially with the Toyo tires I have on now. The one modification I am planning on doing is to add a lowering kit.

My stock stereo and speakers still work, but I am also going to replace them due to the fact that my car is almost 8 years old now.

This car gets superb gas mileage on the highway (31-32 mpg) and decent city mileage. It has quite a bit of get-up-and-go when needed, however, as always, an automatic transmission in a sports car is unsettling.

All in all, the interior is very comfortable and cozy. The trunk leaves something to be desired, but since the back seat folds down for extra storage, I find that I can haul just about anything I need.

With my driving habits and the amount of miles I put on this car monthly, I am very surprised that nothing has gone wrong yet, but it's true. Not one thing has broken at 126,500 miles and I'm still going strong with all original parts and engine.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

That's nice that you say that you haven't had any problems. I have been puzzled by all the good reviews I have read on this car. I have a '95 SE manual with ABS/VLSD and leather which I bought used in '97 with 38,900 miles on it. It now has 77,000 miles on it. I have had both minor and major problems with it which I have been trying to figure out if some of these are inherent in this particular model or not. When I first got it it had a bad wheel bearing. Then 2 minor oil leaks before 50,000miles. After that steering rack seals that went bad which I had to spend $600 on a rebuilt steering rack which I think is going out again just 3yrs later. Replaced thermostat 2yrs ago. In the last yr: starter, 3 months later engine had to be decarbed then right after that I started getting low gas mileage at 19mpg so the 02 Sensor was replaced which didn't cure the problem, valve cover gasket and gromets at the same time replaced at the same time. My steering seems to be messed up again. It is clanking when I turn the wheel or go over bumps. The ends of the tie rods are shot, though, its probably something more major like the rack or U-joints going out. Parts are expensive for this car.

Maybe you should have written a review of your own rather than making a huge comment that had nothing to do with the review.

True...Anyways, I am 18 years old and am planning on looking into 240's. I am seeking one which is pretty quick, yet not too expensive. I am wondering which model will fit my needs? IF any other suggestions as to what other makes I should look into, please inform me.

The 240 is a great car. It can be built to 600 hp, probably more, and 500 ft lbs, you've just gotta have the money.
