I have been driving my 1993 Nissan Sunny LX for over a year and a half and although it cost me a bit for the first six months I had it, I had to replace the front of the exhaust and get a new clutch, it has been superb for a nearly ten year old car. It has a very decent stereo system for the time as standard. There is not that many gadgets or luxuries about the car, its just honest and good driving. I often drive from High Wycombe to Leeds and the car performs tremendously and on a good run like that I can do near forty miles per gallon. Urban milage floats around the low thirties per gallon, again what more do you want for a ten year old car. I have grown very attached to my Sunny, and although I often think of newer and more flashy motors, I think I'm going to have to run her into the ground, I couldn't bare to part with her. Luckily, the way she's running at the moment I'll have her a few years yet!!
Having a father in the motor trade does have its advantages. This will just be a short opinion from me on this car. I normally write these in my lunch hour but I'm off out for a ride in this ridiculous car. I've had it 2 days and I think I have someone to buy it already so minutes spent writing are minutes better spent scaring the crap out of myself. This Sunny is a 94 'L' and is badged up as a 'Pulsar' (it is an import - I know I've said I hate imports before but this car is an exception) which is what the Sunny was called in Japan. There were about 100 UK spec Pulsars sold over here, they are rare and worth a lot more than the usual circa £5-6 k price tag. So if you like a car that produces 227 b.h.p from a 2.0 litre 16 valve DOHC engine, a car that has air con as standard, a car that has 4 wheel drive and handles like baby poo sticks to a blanket, then GET A PULSAR!!! This car is fast, 0-60 in 5.4 seconds (manufacturers estimate) means that you will NEVER be left behind at the lights. I know people will say 'what about Porsches and TVR's?' well, the average porsche driver is 50 ( I said 'average'!!) and does not have lead boots. Also, the average Porsche and all TVR's have only Rear wheel drive to put all their power to the road. The Pulsar wins EVERY time!! Now I know you will all harp on about 'fuel consumption' and price of parts, but for £6000 I don't give a monkeys! I have got a car (not for long though - hopefully) that can even take on big bikes and not be shame faced! There are plenty of tuning parts available to make this 'Pocket Rocket' a real Street Racer, maybe one day I'll buy one to keep and see how quick I can get that 0-60 sprint! If you want a cheap car, that is non-descript (it is after all STILL just a lowly Nissan Sunny!) buy one of these. I am off out now to pick on some Escort Cosworths
and embarass some TVR drivers. You will recognise me by the HUGE grin on my face and brown stains in my pants! I will be back soon to write a full review and add how few miles I have managed to get to the Gallon (i'm guessing no more than 15-20 - oh well, you only live once!).
This car is nice for a growing family. We have had this car for about 5 years, like most Nissans, is very reliable. We have never broken down, no problems with the engine and we have found this car easy to handle. ADVANTAGES: This car is easy for parking as it maneouvres well. Top speed is 110 mph. Consumption is approx. 40 miles per gallon,s o extremely economically, considering the cost of petrol these days. The exterior has kept with modern designs, while still keeping its classic look. Security is very good, as no-one wants to nick a Nissan(ha ha ha) DISADVANTAGES: Seating-sometimes not convenient, especially for driver, as there isn't that much room between leg and steering wheel. In the summer months, it does tend to get a little hot, because of the lack of air conditioning. Manual window opening/shutting is time consuming. Overall, well you can't expect too much from a Nissan.
I already owned the previous Sunny model and had been really impressed with it, so when the time came to find a replacement the final version Sunny was top of my list. I ended up buying a Sunny Preview, one of the final models before the Almera replaced the Sunny. My faith in Nissan proved well founded, this is a great little car. The engine runs smoothly and has plenty of power for the engine size. The ride and handling are good. The interior is comfortable and well laid out. The car proved 100% reliable until it had an argument with some flood water and so I would be happy to recommend it to anyone. Try to buy one of the later models as the safety features were up rated on these.
I have recently purchased a Nissan Sunny from a car garage in Llandudno! Insteadly I fell in love with it! For a bargain of £2299 this K reg Nissan Sunny Chic is one of the best cars that I have ever driven! The Hell Red car drives like a dream and has many features!!!! Steering a easy and the car drives without making a sound!! I could sell this car at £3000 if i wanted to but I will not, cause I like it!!! Highly Recommended car, one which you should look up ! !
