1996 Nissan QX SE 2.0 V6 24 Valve from UK and Ireland
A powerful comfy Beast
The spark plugs have messed up a few times, but otherwise all OK.
The electronic lead suppling the power to the spark plugs have been repaired twice.
This car is really comfortable. The power under the bonnet is immense and it gives out a lot of torque. I find the handling excellent and the overdrive on it is class. Plus the sport button is nippy and there is a snow button which controls the revs so snow is no problem. My Mazda 323f failed terribly on the snow whilst the Nisan had no problem. Even though it is only a 2.0 it guzzles the petrol badly. Bu the V6 24V engine is great and it's my favorite car of its price. I once pulled up at the lights next to a Ford Scorpio and I cleared it no problem with the overdrive and the sport button. This car rules!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The QX is a fairly heavy car, and with a 2 litre engine that only puts out around 145 BHP, I cannot imagine this car being fast, especially burdened with a automatic transmission. I remember seeing that the 0-60 time for this car is roughly 14 seconds. Hardly quick.
My dad drives this, and a Subaru Impretza tried to overtake, admitadly it may have only been a 2.0, but he pushed the sport and overdrive button on, and it left the scooby way behind. Plus it's 0-60 time is around 8-9 seconds unmodified, so if you haven't driven one you should shut your face like.
