Want to know what a dog feels like when he goes everywhere wagging his tail?
If so, the Nissan 200SX is for you.
I bought my 1995 200SX in March and haven't looked bac since. Although it's the non touring version (ie. Doesn't come with leather and 10 CD changer as standard) a CD autochanger had been added by the previous owner, so apart from the lack of leather against your bum there's no difference.
With 78,000 on the clock, it still drove like a new car, and even now, with 89,000, it puts most new cars to shame with a 0 - 60 time of under 7 seconds.
Complaints, well only a couple. In the wet it can be a bit of a handful if you don't respect it. With 200 BHP going to the back wheels though, you have to expect it to be a bit lively. Secondly, if you're planning on taking the lads out for the day, make sure you warn them that it'll be a bit intimate in the back ! With the drivers see fully back (which you'll need if you're 6 ft) there is the grand total on 1 inch of legroom for the passenger behind you.
Still, if you want a car that can carry 4 adults, go and buy something mundane like a Mondeo instead.
Overall, it has to be the best drivers car I have ever had the pleasure to own, and even though it was replaced with a new model a couple of years ago, the 1995 200 SX is still a real head turner.
