So far so good part II

2001 Nissan Sentra SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This is my 2nd review on this car. Its now going on 60k and the rear caliper needed replaced but it was due to the person/dealer never put a shim/retainer back on after doing a brake job. The paint on the front bumper has peeled off, no biggie. The Firestone tires are junk! The in-cabin filter is good but the dealers want $$$ for replacement filter. Go buy a home filter for $20 and cut 3 or 4 out of it and it will filter out x100 more stuff. The sr20de is why i bought the SE. Many have recommened this engine. The Granite color is attractive. I'm getting 24mpg city and 30mpg hgwy. Its good in snow. If you want to get a Sentra find an SE! They stopped making them in 2001 so good luck!
Handling, decent but not super power, 16" wheels, cheap payments, mpg's, sunroof, cheap insurance and fun to drive. Knowing i can turbo this sr20de and get 400+hp, or so i've been told.
Rear legroom, tires, hey Nissan the Neon SRT4 is kicking the Spec's but so when ya gonna give us the sr20det? Chipping paint.
