"Got a 96-SE used in 2000 as a graduation present. Let me tell you about my blue as sky baby. Stood by me through thick and thin. Had normal wear and tear but nothing major, although I have put 110K in it so far. You know you have a good car when you can make two round trips from San Diego to Los Angeles ( about 2 hrs trip, 130mi distance one way) on one full tank of gas. You know you have a good car when your car passes all them V6s, V8s, v16s, V32s, 3 million horse power, 2010 spanking new cars and trucks, on a god darn hill. You know you have a great car when you're at a car dealership with your friend cause they're buying a car, and when the dealer tries to make money off of you as well and tell them HOLD UP!!! I have a 200SX; the dealer goes darn your car will never break down. :D Youze got a good car! The only thing that will really break often over time on this car is the exterior. When that happens if its to your liking, just get a new paint and body job. And it will look like new, cause the inside still runs like new. Finally, to Sentra owners. I almost slapped somebody who tried to call my sweet baby a Sentra. Don't get it confused Sentra people. A Sentra, although slightly similar, does not compare to a 200SX. So don't get your hopes up like that. They are not interchangeable. Big difference! In conclusion, I love this car (was I too obvious?). I have tried and tried to find a reason to buy a new car. But why fix what ain't broke. And besides, you can't beat paying less than $500 a year on car insurance, and less than $80 on car registration, cause your car is buck old, but drives like it's spanking new. You just can't."

Pros: "MPG, repairs, fun, size, FWD, longevity."

Cons: "replacement tail lights one year 1998."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"My 200 had the paint burned off it when I got it in St.Petersburg, Fl. The headliner and visor's are rotted. I let it set for over 7 years (in the HOOD) after I got it and the hatch was pried open and spare stole water let in for a year.After sitting I got into it put two tires on it,put a can of seafoam in the tank and drove it to Denver. It needs a charge on the air and the cruise does not work. I replaced a CV and the right hub and wheel bearing. I consistently get MPG in the high 30's. I also have a 240 SX and my wife drives a Maxima. I wish Nissan would offer the SR 16 over the GA 16 in this model. This is a simple car and very lite, not much to brake. Has comfortable seats and with GOOD tires (Continental, Pirelli, or Michelin) and good shocks, rides well. I will never sell this car as it is my idea of a hybrid. I would say that many driver's do not like you going around them in a old car that is paid for and gets 2 to 3 times the MPG of their new car! I will say that if you want to know the true value of a car see what other people, in other countries think of this manufacturer and like models."
