i was thinking of saving some dough and finding a shitty ass sentra se-r or nx2000 with high miles on the clock, then selling my celica nd putting the rest into mods and maintenence. my question is, is it worth it? i know people have like 200k on some, but what have they done to keep them running? is it safe to do this? help!

My NX has 140K miles. Oil changes roughly once every 5000 miles. Tune up has been done only twice. Its been autocrossed/dragged since 50K miles, and its running stronger than it ever has. In fact, every year I beat my personal best 1/4 mile time. This motor never ceases to amaze me.

IMO, I think it's fine to run synthetic. BTW, I can also vouch for it being a very tough car. My car currently has 192,000 kms, and I beat on it regularily.

In fact, I'm beating on it tomorrow at Shannonville
