#9 of 57 My Beloved NX!!!!!
Feb 29, 2000 (2:15 am)
I was innocently driving my NX in San Francisco yesterday when someone fell asleep at the wheel and smashed its rear completely! Uuuuuhgh! Where will I find a car as lovely as that one?!!!!! It was a near perfect Red 92 Nissan. It was efficient, sporty, fun and 1,000% reliable. Does anyone know of any NX's for sale near Northern CA or can anyone suggest a "replacement" vehicle for my beloved NX? HELP!!!! bdemilEarthLink.Net

Check the classifieds section on
for cars for sale.
Or, contact your local SERCA representitive, and see if they'll help you find a another car. I'm a SERCA (SE-R Club of America) rep, but I'm in Canada.
You'll find SERCA's main page here:
Is the damage really, really serious? Think about buying the car back from the insurance co., if it's been written off, and buying a junked car, and taking parts off it to fix.
There are a large number of junked NXen available through the search engine found here
And yes, I have an NX2000. I was rearended last year, and fixed the damage completely. Depends on how serious your collision was.
If you need more info, feel free to mail me at sp_250hotmail.com, and I'd be more than pleased to offer any help I can.

I meant to call that "here you go", but I mistakenly hit enter.
#12 of 57 Things to look for.

The original post on this group asked for things to look for when buying an NX.
NX's were made both here and in Japan. I had a Japanese '92 NX2000 W/ ABS and everything. Loved the car. Only traded because I needed 4 doors.
The import models had better equipment as far as rotors, and some other mechanicals are concerned. So in my experiance the Japanese models would be the better choice.

If you're talking about the 1991-1993 NX2000 and NX1600, they were all made in Japan.
Some Sentras were made in Smyrna, Tenn., but if you look at the serial number of any NX, you'll find it starts with a "J", which indicates a Japanese-made car.
I think I know what you're talking about with the larger front brakes (ADV22F). These large brakes were standard equipment on all NX2000s until late in 1993, when it appears that *some* cars came with the smaller brakes of the stock 1991-94 Sentra SE-R. My 1992 has the larger brakes, and personally, I've never come across a smaller-braked NX2000, but supposedly they exist.

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!)
