1992 Nissan Sunny SLX 1.6 SLX from Norway
Sunshine makes me happy, as does my Sunny
Rust is eating her up.
Right headlight grew weak after 3 years of ownership (it's probably been in the car much longer)
After 4 years of ownership the power windows, windshield fluid pump and central locking stopped working (not a fuse, haven't had this checked out yet). Sunroof still works like a charm though!
Front seat screws growing weary after 16 years of people going in and out, starting to get jiggly.
Super car! Always starts right up independent of outside temperature (I've been the only one driving to school with a full parking lot behind me full of cars that didn't start)
90hp carries the car well, although when fully loaded with people and luggage it can get a little on the weak side.
Everything FITS in this car! I've packed it up in all ways possible and never have I had to give up and get a bigger transport! Bikes, IKEA-furniture, 3 people + snowboards and 3x luggage for a week: no problem!
(Note: I have the hatchback)
Interior is perfect even after all these years, however, the outside is really feeling the elements. Mine has rust growing in the canals and on the side of the rear quarter-panels. There is no easy fix to this so I'm just trying all I can to keep it pacified. Unfortunately this is common with all Japanese vehicles (except for those driven where they don't salt the roads) of this age so I don't expect it to live forever.
It's a sturdy companion that never gives up, gives me excellent fuel economy, keeps well on the road, has plenty of power and a crucially low maintenance cost.
I'm definitely buying Nissan next time!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
