2002 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my 2nd Sentra, my 1st, a 1991 2-Dr model, lasted until it was totalled in a collision in '02. When I purchased this one, it was a definite upgrade in terms of weight, acceleration, comfort and style. The mileage could be a little better these days (avg 25-30), the leg room in the back is too little for people over 5' tall, and it is very sensitive to the wind. I am overall very happy with the car, it's very reliable and can handle it's own. Other than the above issues, it's a great car for long term owners.


Best Features

Keyless entry, decent trunk space, dash and stereo tools w/in easy reach.


Worst Features

Improve handling in windy conditions, more leg room overall.

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


Review

I've had my Spec V for a little over a month now and I really don't have any complaints. Very fun to drive, powerful for a 4 banger, decent styling, pretty cool interior. Would buy again.


Best Features

Fun to drive, handling, all round great car for the price.


Worst Features

Wider wheel base, more power, not a lot of leg room in the back seats.

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


Review

Good car, almost 75000 miles and still running as new. Reaches great speeds in short time, very strong. The engine had a recall but Nissan took care of it. Unlike other reviews where said that Nissan did not notify their customers. Sorry, they sure did, several notes were sent in the mail. Other than this, the car has been great, I do take care of it. Service it on a timely manner (well... I stretch a bit). The little car is still in great condition after almost 5 years and I intend to keep until it dies on me. Thanks Nissan!


Best Features

Great stereo, very powerful, very fast car. It has enough room even though a compact.


Worst Features

Nissan should improve the exterior design to match the sport inside.

2002 Nissan Sentra XE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this sentra XE for saving money. It does not have keyless entry, power windows, but has CD and AC. Runs well, has 5 passenger seat, great fuel economy, so I guess this is perfect for some money saver? Wow!


Best Features

Money saver.


Worst Features

I think suspension is a little bit too tight.

2002 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought back in 09/02 and the only issue I've come across is the parking brake light won't go out (happened around 50k mi) - Other than that it's been extremely reliable. It was -30 degrees here in MN not to long ago for about a week and it started fine every morning like a champ. Ride is smooth.


Best Features

Reliability, ride, value.


Worst Features

More power. It drives like a 4cyl.. which is to be expected, but it doesn't have a lot of gitty up.
