Just picked up my SE yesterday and dam its the bomb!!! Unfortunately I stalled it about 4 times in the 4 hours I drove it around this mornin, but I'm hoping I'll get the hang of it in another day or two...Any break-in advice for a newbie 5-spd driver, I'm taking it as slow as possible for now...I did alot better this morning than the test drive though, stalled the demo car 5 times, the guy must have really wanted to sell the car to put up w/ me :)

Been reading the boards for awhile & its great to know so many knowledgeable people are eager to help. I used to drive a Toyo, but definately a converted Nissan fanatic!!

Welcome...

Break it in slow like the book says. Under 4K?? rpm I think, for the first 1000 mi and easy on the aceleration. I have 4000 miles and just hit 6K rpm the other day. Its no garantee but engine life and future performance will likely be better with an easy break-in.

Welcome aboard!

We have another Nissan Convert...

Hope you like your SE as much as the others, it's "the" choice among members...
To think Nissan was struggling not long ago - you would never know from the responses from the faithful here!

Don't worry about the shifting, it doesn't take long to get a hang of - just watch out for 1st, occassionally it doesn't notch in on the first try when it's realy new and being broken in...

If you ever need any tips the members will gladly help you out!

Enjoy the new ride!
