The car has decent pep to it but could do better on milage. I have an automatic tranny w/performance package. The 16" wheels really makes the car look better but the low profile tires makes the car ride a little hard. I purchased the Sentra used at Pohanka Chevrolet in Chantilly, Va. for $10,500. The car did well in the blizzard that hit the East Coast this Feb. The torque is among the highest in this class of vehicle. I believe 0-60 is around 9 or 10 seconds though i have not really romped on the gas pedal to find out. With 3 family members (each weigh about 230lbs) this Sentra performed well with a full load.
Performance. Price. Reliability. Insurance. Timing chain instead of timing belt.
Radio. I have the upgrade (not the Fosgate) and i would hate to hear the standard radio. Paint. Front grille is ugly! Made one out of steel wire mesh and now it has the look of the SE-R.
