#14 of 57 1992 NX 2000
May 16, 2000 (4:21 pm)
I'm from Canada. I bought this car in March of 1999. I paid around $6500 Canadian for the car that had around 140 000 Km (roughly 75 000 miles).
I have had to replace the pads all around twice and the rear disks once. I have added a new muffler, new CV joints, and fixed the driver side window motor drive and switch. Roughly I have pumped an extra $2000 dollars into the car.
I noticed that the rubber seals around the Windows and the T-Top can leak. The car will rust at the base of the front windows as the water run off from the T-Top runs right down to the metal in the door frame near the front of the car. Check that area between the front window and the windshield for rust!!!!
The other rust area I have noticed with other NX 2000's (not mine so far) is in the back on the left and right of the tail light you will get rust lines down the back of the car. I think that water can collect under the spoiler around the brake light and will leak.
I also noticed that during our cold winters the car will not start. I had to get it towed twice to the mechanics this winter, both times the car started fine once it was in the garage for a few hours. A fellow colleague of mine has the NX 1600 and had the same trouble this past winter.
All in all though this car is great. It was the first automobile I had purchased, and I am definitely satisfied even though I have had to put some money into it. The transmission is smoother than almost anything I have ever driven. The gears switch almost by themselves. The performance amazing from this little car. The power steering is easy to move and yet is as responsive as manual steering in some other Honda's I have driven. You can fly onto HWY ON RAMPS at almost any reasonable speed without that feeling that the car is about to flip over.
I am wondering if anyone knows of a website that I can purchase aftermarket parts for the car. FI Chip's and other Standard Nissan accessory's for the car have to be available somewhere. If anyone knows of a site or a telephone number please e-mail me or post a response up here.

Sure. Check out: http://www.discountperformance.com/
Also, check out this:
The club webpage will be revamped soon. Sorry about the online registration. My ISP just took away shell access, so the perl script isn't working.
There are instructions there for joining the Canadian SE-R Mailing List, there are about 30 of us on it.
Mail me for more info at sp_250hotmail.com, if you're interested in anything you see, or if you have any questions.
(BTW, I'm in Toronto, but we have members from Halifax to Vancouver, and everywhere in between!)

Why don't you mail me directly with more info. I run the an SE-R Club here in Canada (I'm in Toronto), and I actually drive a 1992 NX2000.
I can tell you what to look for, and whether it's worth buying.

#19 of 57 Long live the SR20DE

The original SR20DE motors basically made their power in the midrange, unlike my 98 Prelude, but had an even higher redline! I could accomplish most passes in the NX without a downshift, which is not the case with the Prelude. Man I miss that car. If your a used Honda-only driver, you owe it to yourself to sample the NX. It's a front-drive 944.

Hey corbendallas! Good to see a familiar name from the SE-R Mailing List.
I'm a less-frequent poster there now, but I've been subscribed continually since January 1998.
I'm going to love my '92 NX2000 even more when it comes back from the bodyshop in August. I'm getting a full refinishing, dent removal, replacement of sunbaked trim, and 3 coats of urethane & and a coat of clear
That should keep it looking good for another 8 years!

Is that a movie name? Sounds familiar. What's an automatic NX like to drive?
Hey spnx: What color are you doing your NX? Same as before or perhaps somthing unusual?
It's good to see some new entries on this lost classic.

I'm repainting my car in stock superblack, same as before. Nothing special, but with no dents, and new paint, that's enough for me. I'll be *very* happy with it.
I really don't like to make my car look unusual. To the untrained eye, (an insurance appraisal agent, actually) it looks pretty much stock.
Hey, I even powdercoated the Volk TE37 rims silver, and took the stickers off. Very few people recognize them, which is good, as I live downtown, and the car sits around in plain view most of the time.
