1989 Nissan Sunny SLX Coupe 1.6 from Netherlands
A mostly under-appreciated friend for life
Not very much, apart from the stuff you would expect over the years:
- Two new batteries.
- One set of new tires.
- One new rear muffler for the exhaust.
This car is reliable, fun and cheap.
* Reliable because it has never ever let me down. Not even gave me the feeling something could be wrong. Every time I turn the key, it starts, be it summer or winter.
* Fun because it looks not bad at all, it has a very nice running 12-valve engine with enough power.
* Cheap because the car doesn't need much maintenance or spare parts, it doesn't cost much in road-tax and the mileage is good too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi, I'm from Finland and I can say that Nissan Sunny Coupe is RELIABLE it has not let me down even in -45 celsius degrees in winter.
Fun and great to drive, plus easy to tune up some more horses under the hood!

I have such a nice car too. a Nissan Sunny SLX Coupé. my son is very proud about it!
It looks nice and is pleasant to drive. my car is 13 years old now and has done 179.000 km's.
I have a problem too: every now and then there is a mechanical noise. riding or standing makes no difference. it sounds as if something rotates and is not fixed to its bearings or so. doesn't sound healthy. I'm afraid of a costly repair..
But I like the car very much!

Hi, I'm Andrew from Scotland. I've just had to replace a valve on my Nissan Sunny Coupe 1.6 12 valve. Please could anyone give me information on valve timing as I am having trouble setting the timing back to its original position. It's a great car to drive and I don't want to scrap the engine. Thanks if you can help.
