2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
I've had my eye on the Sentra for some time now - and when I missed my chance to get an SE last year - it turned out to be the best thing.
I hadn't sat in this car long and I knew I'd buy it. The interior is laid out almost perfectly, the shifter is crisp and clean, the acceleration spirited, and the value is exceptional. It is practical (4-dr) and actually roomier than most competitors. Mine was 18,388 with sunroof, 6-disc changer, dest fee, audio fanatic package. Eat that, Camry.
Unique, fun to drive, awesome sound system, best dealer experience yet.
The stiff suspension may be too much for those used to a floaty, airy ride
