1995 Nissan Cedric GranTurismo
Stock Number: 4683
Very few imports deliver so highly on style for such a low inception price. The Y33 platform may be the next big thing here in the US, and we highly recommend getting in before the craze begins. This 1995 is finished in Nissan's stunning Super Black (KH3) and boasts a reliable V6 and rear-drive. This executive sedan looks and drives like a dream and would no doubt make an incredible daily driver. Sure, the body has a few minor dings and scuffs but overall the value equation can't be beaten. Best of all, this Cederic is being offered with an incredibly low 43K verified miles and is fresh off a recent service. As a turn-key entry-level luxury car, you can't really beat this tasty little GranTurismo which is why its a clear-cut Japanese Classic.
The clean layout of the interior is refreshing compared to today's button laden and touchscreen filled cockpits. The dash layout was ahead of its time and ergonomic, including functional OEM audio and also a digital climate system. The dash, unlike many older Nissans, is near mint lacking any cracks or distortion. It also houses dual SRS airbags, which hopefully will never be put to use. Beyond the burl veneer, the neutral cabin is in above average shape and has obviously been cared for. The seats, for instance, lack any major rips stains, or tears. The material is soft to the touch, and long journeys can be undertaken in supreme comfort. The headliner is a stain-free, and the door cards are in good order as well.
The mechanicals that underpins the Y33 chassis is known for its low cost of ownership, and long term durability. The VG30E 3.0L V6 is smooth and compact. Benefitting from a fresh oil and filter service, she churns over quickly with the twist of a key. While admittedly the engine isn't the hotshot turbo option, it created less heat and is known to run forever. Acceleration is linear and the VG sends its power rearward through an automatic gearbox. The transmission shifts as it should, and operated properly. The long-wheelbase lends itself to fantastic ride quality, and on the freeway, this sedan rides like butter. Large potholes are eaten up by the suspension, and the large tire sidewalls give even more cushion against road imperfections. The brakes feel confident and the power steering is light, making city parking a snap. The simple, multispoke factory alloys are wrapped in new rubber as well. They can handle inclement weather and quiet down the ride quality even more.
