This is for Alan (aka ajslattery). Back earlier this month, you were looking for a good home for your NX 2000, because you were moving to Ireland. I was wondering if you had "placed" your baby yet? If not, I'd definitely be interested. I'm located next door in CT. We can discuss this offline -- please email me at HORSERADSHAOL.COM. Thanks!
#29 of 57 The NX Curse....
Jan 07, 2001 (5:46 am)
I cannot believe my luck. I just read all the posts and I can't believe how many NX's have been rear ended...I just got rear ended about 5 days ago...and it was a write off...not only was my car crushed...I am as well. It is a fabulous car. It was just the 1600 but it still had a lot of pep to it. The only consolation I have is for my next car, I will upgrade to a 2000. But these cars are so few now that finding one in good condition is rare. I was lucky that mine was very well taken care of. It took me 2 and half months to even find one that was in great shape. I will definitely get another NX but it will take time. Does anyone know of someone selling their NX...in Edmonton,Alberta Canada? please let me know at pulp-dictionalberta.com.
There was nothign wrong with that car and it was sporty yet the fuel economy was great. And I loved that digital dash. The first time I drove an NX it was in 1991 and it was brand new. I was a valet at the Westin Hotel and I fell in love with it back then. I am sure there are a lot NX lovers out there. It's one of the best kept secrets around. I know a lot of people did not buy it, because they thought it was just like the Pulsar NX...but make no mistake...the Pulsar was a piece of junk...and this Car would make anyone happy. Cheers all.

#31 of 57 Advice Requested
Jan 16, 2001 (4:59 pm)
Hello, I am the original owner of a '92 NX2000. It has been a great car, reliable, peppy, corners, love the t-roofs, 78,800 low mileage. But I need more space now. The dealer is offering $2000 trade in. Seems really low. The edmunds value is much more than that. Will I really be able to market this vehicle? Is there a demand for them? I was surprised to find out there is an association of car owners with this type engine. Any input....

Hell, I have never even driven an NX2000, but I sure would buy yours in a heartbeat. Those cars were hot little sports cars in their day and there are people out there who search all over for these relatively rare gems. They were known for their excellent handling, good brakes, and fast acceleration. I would say you could get more than 2K for your car since it has such low mileage and you are the original owner. I would try and sell it on your own.
#35 of 57 Very hard to find!!!!

I searched and searched to find an NX2000 with a t-roof and reasonable mileage on it. I live in Montreal which is a big enough city. I even went to a dealership that said if they don't have one in stock, they could get it in 48 hours. I went back 4 times in a span of a month just to let them know I was interested! I was even looking in the Ottawa area since Ottawa was only 2 hours away! Anyways, I couldn't find one. I opted to buy a new car instead. Aside from the questionable styling, I don't know why this car didn't sell that well. This had to be one of the best FWD sports cars out there. As far as price vs. driving enjoyment went, nothing could touch it! And a T-roof too...you have a poorman's convertible.

I wish I had known about this group earlier, as I've been an avid NX2000 owner since I got mine back in the spring of '93.
Finding a red one, new, with anti-lock brakes and AC meant traveling from North Carolina to Kissimmee, Florida on the overnight Amtrak, but it was well worth the trip.
I also wish I had known how much of a difference getting rid of the Potenza tires would make. The Dunlops have been really fantastic. Car handles like a dream.
Installing Bosch Quadra spark plugs gave it a very surprising extra amount punch in the acceleration department, and I'd tell you that it helped the gas mileage, except that the extra power is, well, quite seductive!
I upgraded the stereo to an Alpine w/CD, and a professionally installed Alpine alarm system as well, but those are the only things that I've changed on it. With Mobile 1 in the crankcase
since day one, she's never had a wrench put on her.
The bad news is that I've had the wife AND the car for the same length of time, and even though it's driving great at 85,000 miles, she's been on my case to sell it and get something more
My sense is that these cars will certainly be collector cars one day, but I have no idea where to find the kinds of drivers / collectors most likely to appreciate it or what to expect $$$
Recent experiences / tips from the group greatly appreciated.
