Engine -- Verified

Excessive timing chain noise, a rattling or ticking, on higher mileage cars may lead to timing chain failure, which can cause engine damage. There are upgraded chain tension guides with a steel backing to improve durability and a modified repair procedure no longer requires the removal of the cylinder head to replace the timing chain.

1997 Nissan 200SX Reviews

I have had this car for two years and it has ran awesome, best mpg 30+ everywhere. Just getting a engine fix at 165k. But well worth the $$..

I have owned mine since new in May, 1997 and still driving her today at 576K. Did replace the engine block at 437K - probably didn't "have to be done," but at $2K including installation I couldn't resist.

If you're looking for a Cadillac ride, this is not the car for you - the suspension is not designed for that. But if you want a car that will go the distance (and my girl has seen every state E of the Miss. Rvr except WI, but has visited TX, AR & MO), this is the car for you with mostly basic maintenance. Oil changes every 4,500 (not 3K as most folks think-read the manual) and I have done man. transmission fluid replacement every 50K or so.

At this point in her life, I probably spend $1,500 on actual repairs a year - still less than you would pay on a vehicle that can be depended on and still to this day gets around 35 mpg highway and 30 in town. Makes me laugh every time I watch the new car commercials on cars 13 years later touting that they reach the same economy new. :)

Been very reliable, fun to drive. Could be more comfortable, but still very good for a compact car. Very good gas mileage. Smarter than your average 'smart' car.
