1993 Nissan Bluebird ses 2.0 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
An all round excellent car
The internal boot release never worked.
This was definitely the best car I have ever owned.
The car was faultless in it's impressive looks and handling. The SES model had a modest factory fitted body kit and spoiler and some nice 15 inch alloys. The interior was spacious, comfortable and unfortunately only vaguely sporty.
The engine was smooth, responsive and quick, although noisy in the cabin. The 2.0 engine was thirsty around town.
Routine servicing was the only expense incurred.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I've owned a 1993 SES Bluebird Manual for the last four years, I agree it's not very sporty, but overall I have been very pleased with this car, it's just had it's service at 252,000 km, and apart from getting a new clutch a year ago, and CV boots on the front recently, this car has lived up to lots of wear.
By my changing the oil regularly, I've had no oil leaks or temperpature problems, as I use mine for my work and drive 50-80 km a day. So overall I like this Nissan model, and look forward to putting another 50,000 on the clock with hassle free motoring.

The internal boot release not working could be caused by the "disable mechanism". There's a little lever on the side of the lock mechanism, which disables the internal release. We put up with no internal release for almost a year before asking the dealer to have a look at it - they "fixed" it in about 10 seconds!

Thank you for you comment on the boot release, I've put up with it for about two years now of not having a boot release working and by reading your comment on the taking it to the dealer, I had a fiddle around and now it works, thank you very much, other than the cost of replacing parts I have had no other problems with the car.
