1983 Nissan 280C 2.8L 6 cylinder from Australia and New Zealand
An excellent car to own and drive
Not too many complaints about it, a few things though:
Fuel Pump needed replacing at about 60,000kms.
Head & other gaskets needed replacing.
A few rust spots, but after all it is over 20 years old.
As the only car I have ever owned, bought for me by my father, I find is is a very good vehicle.
Given that it has only done 75,000kms, and only 50,000 when I bought it, the engine is is top condition.
The interior is very nice, polished wood grain finish with no wear or damage spots.
It is very comfortable to drive and the suspension is nicely balanced, up there with most newer Holden's.
The power steering, powers windows, power mirrors etc, have been in top condition.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I get about 320km from my 206c thrashing it, great to do long trips, but has a great turning circle and is easy to park too, my daily drive. mine was assembeled in Thames nz.

You may find the fuel pump (buried up in the right hand front guard doesn't not need replacing, just a filter clear out or change). It clogs easily. The transmission is indestructible...
