Economical, but not a slouch
I bought the car with a destroyed automatic transmission and replaced it with a manual unit. Nothing else is wrong with the car.
This car performs very well within the parameters of the engine limits. Most people expect 4-cylinder cars to put out lots of power at low engine revolutions, and 4-cylinders can't do that. When driven with a light foot, higher revs and respect, this car will reward you with stunning power and superb handling.
The '82-88 Pulsar and Sentra use the same engines, transaxles and suspensions; But the Pulsar's lowness to the ground make for great handling, just like my two Sentras (Only better).
This car is comfortable, responsive, reliable, and downright fun. I cannot recommend it enough.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
