2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I was one of the first proud Spec V
owners in CT, no others on the road
until May. Great handling, stock
tires sucked though (Replaced with
Conti Extreme Contacts) for us winter
drivers. MPG is a joke!!!! Gets many
looks and I have kept it stock except
for stereo & tint. Good civic killer,
yeah you heard ME! Drove mine off the
lot for $17,500 (Thanks Jamie @ Exec.
Nissan.) To many recalls though, and
rattles.


Best Features

LSD, 6 speed everyone is impressed by, handling, gobs-o-torque. Seats from Skyline hug you. Black & Red seat color is nice, everyone asked if it was custom.


Worst Features

Paint quality is terrible. Interior build quality is shoddy. Transimission is very plasticy feeling, car was sold to me with clutch cable off 1.8", screwed up my gearing. Poor resale value. Will be trading in next month for a Scion TC.

Review

I bought this car in the beginning of
2002. Today is the 2nd year I own
this car. This is actually my first
brand new car purchase. And in my
opinion, this is a very solid car.
This car has very good power, quick
acceleration, useful accessories, good
styling, and good handling. The only
complain I have, is that this car has
been recalled 4 times already.
Hopefully they fix all the problems.
Sad to hear but, I will be trading
this car for a 2004 Acura RSX Type S.


Best Features

Best performance for under 20K. Spec V model comes complete with lots of options compare to other cars under 20K. Great car for everyday use.


Worst Features

Hopefully, Nissan makes a new model SE- R instead of using generic body styling.

Review

I really love this car and don't regret
getting it at all. Kinda wish mine had
a sun roof but it's all good.
Extremely fun car to drive. Excellent
handling, acceleration, and braking.
Dealership sucked, but I can't hold
that against the vehicle. I've gotten
tons of compliments on this car. This
car is no joke at all.


Best Features

The power. Very fun to drive, great suspension, great handling (even at high speeds). Very comfortable car, and an awsome car for the price. Fun blowing by those Hondas while they wait for their VTEC to kick in. Hot looking car too, looks like it's all hooked up.


Worst Features

Crunchy gearbox, shifts kinda poorly sometimes. Poor paint job quality. Weak top end. Well, not weak, but could be better. Torque steer. Poor turning radius.

Review

I just bought this car about a week
ago, and all I have to say is "Where
have you been all my life". I have
owned many sports cars from 300zx's to
Mustangs. This by far is the most fun
to drive car I have ever driven! I
would recommend this vehicle to anyone
looking for heart stopping fun from
idle to redline....and beyond.


Best Features

Seats, handling, TORQUE, 6 speed, rims, front fascia...etc.


Worst Features

Gas mileage....but I do understand fuel economy vs. performance.

Review

i bought my vehicle new. 18 months
later, my paint has that "orange peel"
look, rockford-fosgate radio doesn't
work, and on one occasion the car
suffered total electrical failure at 60
mph and left me stranded on the side of
the road. the upholstery on driver and
passenger seats have worn terribly.
this car is a far cry from my 1985
300zx, quality-wise. according to
nissan, nothing is wrong with my car.
local dealership refuses to do any
warranty work. worst car i've ever
owned.


Best Features

sound system, handling, trunkspace


Worst Features

electrical system, honor your worthless warranty!
