1992 Nissan Cedric Turbo
Stock Number: 4842
The Cedric is a smooth-riding executive sedan that looks unique and is known for its reliability and ease of ownership. Its big body is finished in an understated Blue Lapis (BK8) that's complemented by a set of factory BBS wheels and OEM rain guards. The body is in good shape other than some normal wear and tear. Boasting a turbo V6 and rear-drive layout, this 1992 feels much newer when behind the wheel. Offered with a mere 33K verified miles, this freshly serviced sedan is killer value and a certified Japanese Classic.
The cabin is well-appointed and full of power amenities. It's in above average shape for a car of this age and has obviously been well cared for back in Japan. Even the factory plush carpet mats come with it and are included in the sale. The Cedric came packed full of power amenities like a functional power driver's seat, electric windows, and locks. Even the power-folding mirrors still work which is great for cities with tight parking. Chrome door sills add an expensive feel and the gray hues of the interior work with the exterior color nicely. The dash is in good shape and lacks any major imperfections such as cracks or distortion. The cloth seats are soft and comfortable on long drives, upholstered in gray. The rear row and front buckets lack any notable rips, holes, or tears. The headliner and door cards are also in good nick, while the only cabin upgrade comes in the form of a Clarion touchscreen Bluetooth head unit. It's both easy to use and intuitive; even sporting a US radio bandwidth which is a rarity. Digital climate control is also standard and works as it should. Overall the cabin quality is quite impressive, as you'd expect from a car with this few miles.
We try to ensure that our imports make great turn-key vehicles for those who want to daily drive. With that in mind, we spend some good money on the mechanicals when we recondition our cars. This Nissan is a fine example that benefits from a fresh oil and filter service. The V6 turns over quickly thanks to a newly installed 12V battery. The VG30DET idles smoothly and breathes easier thanks to a new engine air filter. Parts are easy to find for these vehicles, and most everything is here stateside. We did want to note some light valve cover leaks which are common to this platform but won't affect drivability. The 3.0L is mated to an automatic gearbox. This unit shifts properly and is geared for US interstate driving. The long-wheelbase lends itself to a premium on-road feel, with a turning radius that's tighter than you'd expect considering its size. That's partly in thanks to an efficient power steering system that makes articulation effortless. The brakes feel confident and adhesion comes from four brand new all-season tires that have been mounted and balanced at all four corners. The upgraded BBS factory wheels look sweet, and the new rubber ensures a quiet ride that will last for thousands of miles to come.
