Default What car is better: a 1995 Nissan 240sx or a 1998 Honda civic ex?

I personnally own a 1995 240sx. The only bad thing about it is that it tends to "drift" around in the rainny weather when i make sharp turns. But i think Honda civics look nicer when you add the bodykits.

um i'm not sure of nissan's, i don't know anything about them. but i do know that a honda civic has great gas mileage and will last a long time. for me it's whichever is cheaper on the gas bill (think about it...you're going to be driving it for years....hundreds/thousands of tank fills. It will make a difference in the long run), whichever is known to breakdown less (cheaper in the long run), and whichever lasts longer. (Once again, cheaper in the long run). If I was a millionaire, it would be speed, speed, speed!

Too many people have Civics plus, I think they are ugly cars. Alot of kids around my town have these cars cause they are easy to fix up. THe 240sx is way better than a civic.

The 240 is more of a "drivers car." Lightweight rear wheel drive. As the body kits go I'm not much a fan of them converting your car to a japanese spec S15 body would look sweet. Yours is a S14.

Definetly the 240sx hands down, rwd. And also there are alot of people that actually build the cars to do just what you complain about.. DRIFT... Its and icon in the drift world, you can't goto a drift meet without seeing one. Its to the drift world like the Camaro is to the drag world.. Its all personal opinion though. But around here there are only about 2% males that drive Honda Civics...
