She said it was powerful. Woopty do. That doesn't say a single damn thing about her driving mannerisms, all it says is she's taken it out on the highway, up a hill, or had to pull out of an intersection once or twice with it. There are more ways to know a car has a decent amount of power for a small engine, than driving like an ***. Yes, IGNORANT response.

You don't have to remain unenlightened forever
On longevity, I'd rate the "crappy" Nissan four-banger right up there with the slant six. On performance ... that tipped over six is a boat anchor (along with some small-block V-8s) My 1.6 litre Nissan had close to a half million km on it before the head gasket went bye-bye. The carbody itself made a fix not worth the money.
He said 'the nissan 4 cyl motors are one of the most powerful small
motors on the market, and I can verify that. ' That was the reason for the 'judgemental' response, definitely not 'ignorant'
The only point I was making is that, the nissan 4 cyl. isn't 'gutless', as many are.
It has lots of power for a small motor, not for speeding, but for starting out from
a stop, excelerating up a hill, it is very efficient. Get a life will ya.
Whats the problem Avro? By any standards the 510 was a great car. Race tuners could get well over 200 hp out of that engine and in a race in it's class, neither Bimmers or Alphas could catch it, and they cost more than twice as much.
