1989 Nissan EXA 1.8 from Australia and New Zealand
Pretty cool sports car if you have lots of money for age releted repairs!
Water pump blew a seal, cost $200 including workmanship, but took two months from Japan for the parts to arrive!
Cam belt needing doing.
Small prob with rear boot struts, with the two Exas I owned, both had dodgy struts!
Sunroof leaked on passenger side in both my Exas.
Shocks needed replacing.
Needed larger radiator cooling system, seemed to always run slightly hotter than usual japanese cars.
Birds seem target the roof to poop on!
Really good cars if you don't need to travel with a load much bigger than your groceries and handbag!!
Nice and low, easy to park, and has enough grunt to pull away from pesky little boy racers at the lights, only you have to wring it out in second and third to get ahead. Have done 200 kph though, pretty scary being so close to the road.
Have since then traded it in for Toyota Caldina GTT wagon '99. Much better!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
