1996 Nissan 200SX SE-R. Overall, a pretty good car with decent handling. Looked like a black jellybean, though.

2004 InfraRed ZX3... ATX

That's right... bought it new, sold it a year and a half later after buying my SVT that was 2 years older but had 16k fewer miles. I didn't want either to be red, especially, but I can't deny the sexiness. And obviously, I couldn't put up with an under-powered automatic that would drop into all kinds of funny gears when I didn't want it to. Grapevine in 6th gear? No problem...

I agree...that was always one of my favorite of GM's late-model bodystyles...

That have the Duratec V6? I noticed the same thing in my Ma's Ford Escape. Really started to move when it hit 4400rpm or so.

yup duratec.



from this you see it wakes up at around 2500-3000 rpm. I had no catalytic convertors so that is partially why.
the first one is a video as well as the last picture in my other post.

I was driving an orange 2000 200SX before my SVT. I heard "jellybean" plenty of times. It handled ok, to a point. If the SVT has that point, I haven't found it.

My wife and I have owned

-Ford EXP
-Ford Escort
-SHO Taurus
-International Scout (miss it)
-Ford Bronco (x3)
-VW Squareback
-Toyota Corolla
-Taurus wagon

Maybe that's part of it, or the Escape is heavier or geared differently. The Escape's fun zone was definitely from 4400 until it shifted in the high 5's-6k. Either way, the Duratec 3.0's a nice engine, I always enjoyed it.

A super awesome red 2001 Oldsmobile Silouette. It did have some cool features though like the automatic sliding doors and an entertainment system, both of which unheard of in minivans at the time, and the seats folded all the way back ; )
