    We've had Nissans since 1993 and we've had no major problems outside of the normal wear and tear parts that needed to be changed (we just follow the regular mainatainance). My main gripe with our Nissan Sentra now is that it has some interior rattle gremlins that i can't seem to pinpoint. Parts availability for the later models (1993-up) are OK, be it surplus or brand new.

    On the Cefiro, the engine is really silky smooth. It's not a street racer car but rather it's more at home on the highways when it comes to performance... very smooth and stable evn at speeds going over 160kph. It does tend to understeer though if you push her hard. We've had ours for over two years now with no major problems. The interior a/c panel bulbs need to be changed, and it needs new front shocks.

    The second hand ones are a good buy as well. Get a '97-98 model for around 400K more or less, upgrade the exterior to the Elite look, then add 17's or 18's... swabe.

    Of course, a lot on the reliability and durability boils down to the care of the owner on the car.

    pre-owned cefiros are a TREMENDOUS deal. you can get a 99 for something like 500+T i think and a 2000 for 600T yata

    that is a great BARGAIN.

    yung first car namin, a nissan maxima, umabot ng 8 yrs sa amin (199T kms) before we sold it. walang naging major problem naman except for the wear and tear parts. oops, nagkaproblem pala kami sa compressor ng aircon. yun lang. we had bought more nissan cars than other brands. feeling ko mas matibay or kasing tibay nito lahat ng japanese brands. mas madami pa atang naging sira yung 3 yr old na crv namin now kesa sa mga naging cars namin na nissan. mentality kasi ng mga pinoy dito puro toyota. ayaw nila ng nissan.

    nasa 6.0 yata ang average city fuel consumption ng cefiro... could be a little more or less, about similar to a 2.2/2.3 Accord...

    Around 6-7+ for the m/t version duriong city drives i think (based on my friend's inputs). I never had the chance to really compute the mileage on ours. To give a rough idea, i used up about P500 worth of gas from Manila to La Union with 4 passengers plus baggage (a mixture of hard and easy driving).

    On the differences, they're mostly aesthetic except that the PS in the "classic" '97-'98 Cefiros are a bit heavier then the '98 Elite-up models.

    brougham is the top-of-the-range model... yung elite is the lower-end cefiro model
