1986 Nissan Sunny gsx 1.6 coupe 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Sunny's rule - best cars in the world
Nothing at all apart from wear & tear, for example water pump @ 125k & rear shock @ 145k. Bodywork virtually rust-free, paint still bright red and a near perfect interior, even the drivers seat. Mechanically perfect, lovely 5 speed gearbox and all other controls still tight and precise, always starts first time hot or cold. Feels indestructible, will probably outlast me and I'm only 42!
This is a truly great car. Cost only £30 as it had been vandalised (smashed windscreen) & laid up for a couple of years, still started straight away & has never failed since. Bought as a stop-gap whilst looking for a Lexus is200, when found the Lex couldn't bear to part with the Sunny, its just as much fun to drive as the Lex & much more practical, with its huge boot with the seats folded. Treated it to some nice alloys from a Pulsar gt and new stereo/speakers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
