Hi, I'm new to this forum, but not SE-Rs. I USED to own a '91 "Classic" SE-R with Pro-Kits/GABs/JWT POP/200SX SE-R Wheels/ Etc. I owned it for 3 years and loved it, but had to sell it to afford the new project car, a '94 Supra TT 6spd which I still have and will have untill I die!!! :)

The reason I am here is because I am considering getting a '95-'97 200SX SE-R as a daily driver for my GF (I will "borrow" it as much as I can) sometime in the future. I was curious of any problem areas they may have. I know the old SE-Rs had the 5th gear pop-out problem amoung other things, is that problem fixed now, is there anything else to look out for? Thanks!

I know the 95-96 had a EGR-BPT tube problem which should have been fixed under a recall. Also a wiper seal problem that again was a recall. That's all that I can think of....

'96 SE-R.... a few tweaks here and there :)

Supra plez!!!! my Classic will walk all over that Yo-Yo ,bring that thing down here to Rock Hill, SC and I'll show whats up!!! My 14 second ride will be all over you.......oohhh wait I see you pull 12.4s uuummmm so sorry didn't realize you said Supra thought you meant corolla my bad!!!

Seriously the 5th popout was addressed, don't know about the EGR I've had problems with that on my '91. Good luck finding a SE-R by the way those Supra TT are way bad, wish I could afford one.

From what I remember, 97 200SXs have no limited slip.... Need that for ultimate fun. Hate to be a law breaker, but the EGR systems are trash. I'm burning lower emissions since it's removal. Never burned clean even when new untill I "missplaced" my EGR. Can some one help me find it?
I am in no way promoting the removal of said EGR system(s) and it is understood that I am in no way liable for others taking said listed EGR out of said car(s). =)
Other problem areas are as follows: Timing chain tensioner, Water pump, Damaged or broken rear firewall engine mount and it's bracket, front wheel bearings, clutch cable, sticking throttle due to EGR system. There are a few other little things.

excuse me. the 97's *do* have lsd. and i haven't had any problems with those other things you mentioned.
the only thing besides *normal wear* items i've had trouble with was my sunroof. it rattled in the full open position. fixed free by dealer after warrantee expired :)

I think it's the '98s that don't have the Viscous Coupled Limited Slip.
