1994 Nissan Sunny Hatchback LX 1.4 gasoline from Norway
Good reliable car, a bit small, not the most comfy, but still good
First off, some words needed to be translated from Norwegian if that has any say.
Biggest problem first: about 3 months after I bought it the front wheel bearings front (both sides) were shot. So I replaced them and it seemed almost like they were the original ones; not completely sure, but a buddy of mine told me so (big problem because it took 5-6 hours to change).
This was my fault, but the carry bring on the back got bent, I backed it up on a rock.
Replaced all brakes, one original drive shaft cuff, and I have yet to do it, but need to replace the suspension shock/damper?(not spring) on the left driver's side.
Clutch is still feeling great.
Nothing more, the engine is completely clean, a little rust but only cosmetic.
And the previous owner treated the Sunny like crap and it had no big issues.
It's great for my needs, but it's more of a stop gap car or first car (because of its size).
It's reliable, it can be -35 Celsius outside and it starts right up, no fuss, it will start every time in about 1-2 seconds. Is it cold or hot? Doesn't matter, it will start.
And yes there is an engine warmer that i can plug in, forgot it one morning.
Not the most powerful thing I've driven with those old tired 87 HP, and if you drive over 100Kmh it will drink gas, but down in like 75-90 Kmh it won't be bad (and 80 is the standard speed limit).
Bought the god darn thing for 7000 NOK (about 6-700USD) and owned it for about 10 months.
Almost 30 years old, most of it is stock; I give it the love the previous owner didn't.
Rate it 7.5/10, a good reliable car, a bit small, not the most comfy, but still good.
Oh yes one final thing. I once accidentally drove it in like 60kmh over a hefty speed bump and flew a few good meters, nothing bent or broken. I was amazed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
