I had a F Reg 1998 Nissan Sunny Coupe 1.6 GSX Petrol for 156000 miles across 7 years. This fantastic car needed not a single top up of oil or water for the WHOLE 7 years. Yes, I do mean no leaks AT ALL. The block went rusty because of the non-oil leak protection, as only seen on classics according to the garage who very regularly serviced my car. Regular (6000 mile oil & filter changes) preventative maintenance kept this little rocket on course with the minimum of fuss and expense. The worst consumption I ever had from this car was 32 mpg, the best 56 mpg and 45mpg was my average. 97 bhp isn't a lot today, but this car was very lightweight and could take on the hot hatches of their day with no problem. I specialised in romping up motorway hills and stuffing people on roundabouts - move over Sunday Drivers.

The boot is large, the back seat small - between the rear wheelarches, actually, which is how you get such a big boot. The all-round vision was excellent, no blind spots, 100% reliable mechanics & electrics, no internal wear at all except a little bit of paint wore off one of the light switches. One sticky tappet that rattled when the oil had done 5600-6000 miles - how spooky is that?. The front seats were high-mileage comfortable, the driving position good, with positive handling (I lowered mine - cheaper than alloys and VERY effective) and very adequate brakes.
Factory fitted S/R & E/W, PAS all included.

A dying breed now, but shouldn't cost you more than £600 now for the biggest driving laughs I've ever had Check for rust, this is a Nissan after all. Not the wheel arches or sills - above the windscreen where the sweep of the bonnet throws all the stones.

This isn't just reminiscing, I p-ex'd mine against an Alfa 145 and regretted it for the next three years.

A great car. £5k when I bought it - £5k for 7 years, 100% starts, 120+ mph & 45 mpg.

They don't make them like this anymore. What a shame. Don't waste your money on a 2nd hand anything untill you've tested one of these. The 1.8 ZX was a bit faster with vented discs all round and a little spoiler, but no different anywhere else except engine size - I never felt the need for anything bigger at the time, to do what I needed, which was 23000 miles/year both motorway & town, within my budget. Now I have a bigger budget but need better economy than the Nissan Super-Coupes at 18-22 mpg (my V5 2.3 does 25 WORST!)

But I still miss my Sunny!

FK-Automotive Lowering springs High Tec NISSAN Sunny 2WD (N14)

Would you like to improve the performance of your vehicle by lowering? Then you are in our ... more

online shop right here you can find lowering
springs for virtually all vehicle makes and
models. We offer high quality lowering springs and
a top processing. Our lowering springs are
manufactured under the strict guidelines of DIN EN
ISO 9001-2001 on CNC winding machines from
chrome-silicon steel, and plastic-coated
endgesetzt as high-quality corrosion protection.
By lowering the stability of your vehicle is
improved, particularly in cornering, which allows
for a sportier driving style. Also play a more
dynamic look, which can achieve a vehicle with a
lowered suspension, for many drivers play an
important role. Our lowering springs you can
reduce the ride height up to 75mm. In addition to
the aforementioned sporty look but the lowering
shifted the focus of your vehicle, allowing a much
sportier driving style. This is manifested by
reduced body roll and a reduced rebound during
acceleration, with the comfort but not missed. Up
to a lowering of 40mm, you can proceed with the
production shocks of your car. Thereafter,
however, you should install sport shocks, because
as of a lowering of 40mm have shortened sport
shock absorbers are used, since the lowering
spring otherwise has no bias more, the chassis can
then no longer work properly and can lead to loud
noises, there is also the risk that is tilted
lowering spring. It is important to also ensure
that the lowering springs and shock absorbers are
optimally matched. In our online shop you can
therefore naturally acquire the right lowering
springs shock absorbers. We also have in all areas
of a wide tuning range, just check out our online
shop.
