    I still stall my 1.4 haaihoendaai often at pull away. Its so quiet and smooth and revs like a mofo and when you push it it goes but it is completely devoid of any torque before you hit 4000 rpm. No turbo so at least it will last a long time. I just love how the 3.0 torque is so low I can pull of in 2nd without even pushing the diesel pedal

    Air filtration alsoimproved a lot.The old 1400 Nissans needed to be overhauled every 100000 km.Until they brought them out with the donadson type air filters.I had one that did 350000km and was still fine when i sold it

    indeed

    Early pancake filters were REALLY bad.
