After several years in the same form, the Pathfinder finally decided to change its look. This SUV was having an increasingly difficult time fighting off a steadily more refined competition. So now Nissan updated the mechanical and aesthetic features of its sport utility. This model still fared well in terms of sales. [...]

In the late ’80s and early ’90s, Mazda was dumping cash into cars like BP dumped oil into the Gulf of Mexico, so the FD RX-7 was a twin-turbo near-supercar. For one tuning company, its performance still wasn’t enough. Peter Farrell Supercars was set up by the badass New Zelander racecar driver [...]

The all new for 1995 Nissan Sentra was eminently, if not exaggerated, a reasonable car. In a competitive and crowded market where it was imperative to stand out from the rest, did this compact sedan (and coupe as the 200sx) have its sights set high enough to succeed?

The Altima took over for the Stanza. Even if its outside makeup is new, some of the mechanical elements were from the previous model. With the initial Altima, Nissan tried to take over a good segment of the compact market, representing 33% of the actual total market. The Altima was actually [...]

The Eighties, for me were a magnificent era. I started them as a child, and ended them as a teen. For me, cars, and anything related ruled my childhood, from a auto mechanic father, obligatory exotic car posters, plastic model kits, and intoxicating testers glue tubes, to the discovery of my parentals peers, monthly disposal [...]

Is it homely? Or at best a bit on the retro side? Yes. Is it wonderful? Also yes. And not the least of its attractions is a price tag that won’t stun you. The SE-R has been called the BMW 2002 of the 1990s, and we won’t quarrel with that. What’s more, this being the [...]

A very nice car, that 1992 Nissan 240SX. Of course what makes it nice, or at least more than tolerable despite the annoyances and aggravations, is that this is the convertible version of the Japanese automaker`s compact sport coupe. There`s a saying among collectors that when the top goes down, the value goes up-and so [...]

The Stanza is without a doubt the most austere Japanese compact on the market, when compared to the Honda Accord, or the Mazda 626. This four or five door sedan has three trim levels: DLX, XE, and the luxury GXE which is very close perhaps too close to the Maxima. It is a very up [...]
