Hmmm...ABS with HICAS? That is interesting, My car doesn't have HICAS, then again I own a 1991 Canadian Model 240SX!Rephlex said:Yesterday I sold my 93 del Sol and bought a 92 240sx SE Hatch. I've never owned a Nissan before, but I've driven my dad's 03 350z enough to realize that they are GOOD.
I can't wait to get under the hood, the previous owner wasn't too big on tuneups, and it hasn't had an allignment in 7(!!!) years. I picked it up for under 1.5k and it seems to be fairly solid except for the usual crap (missing window switches, crap tires, busted fuel door, really really bad tint, 1 working speaker,etc).
Anything I should know? I plan on picking up a Haynes manual this week, but I am curious about the mechanical aspects.
I've found so far that it's a 2.4l 4-cyl with 155hp/160lb. It has ABS with HICAS 4 wheel steering, 5 speed manual (of course), and... er, that's about what I know at this point. Any advice or tips are appreciated.
Keep the HICAS if it doesn't bother you, most people don't like cause they think it affects their drifting, but unless you plan on Drifting, the HICAS makes your car handle much tighter!
Good Idea with the Haynes Manual, I hear the Chilton's is good too.
My only suggestion is ask questions and search around here and every other forum you can!
Also, ask questions before you dish out big $ to fix anything, mechanics can be major crooks!
