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


Review

This is a car for a true enthusiast. There is now other way to get close to the world's greatest hot rod, the Skyline GT-R V Spec, for under $18,000 used. If you just want value for the money, stick to the 2.0 GXE or SE-R, but for that extra adrenalin rush on the road and at an import car show go for the bigger engine, nicer wheels, rockford fosgate in-dash with an 8" boom generator in the trunk which is part of the "audio fanatic" package. The car does 120mph as easily as 50mph thanks to a great stock body kit. This will be a classic that everyone will want once the Civic craze dies out in the near future.


Best Features

Front air dam, McPherson suspension, racing seats, aggressive road stance.


Worst Features

Must reconsider the 2004 body change to save the great name! Next year's model is a stock Sentra with a big engine, awful wheels, and terrbile front.

This is the best 4 banger car ever made and there's no turbo. WOW!! The SPEC-V suspenion is great! Turns like a dream. Love this car.

Quick 6 speed tranny, front bumper, sunroof, SPEC-V suspenion, and the front seats are great.

Wish they made other color interiors like black and blue.

Review

I have a 03 spec v and its a great little car for the money. You can't get all the features and all the performance from any other import for even 4 grand more. And honda doesn't even know what torque is.


Best Features

175 hp 2.5 4 cylinder 17" wheels sunroof, decent stereo, power everything, and all for $18,500 !!!!!!


Worst Features

A little more hip room, do something with the cheap rubbery 6 speed shifter please!!!!

Review

I have over 30,000 miles on the car and it's only a little over a year old. I love to drive this car. I've done every engine mod including taking out the balance shafts and grounding the knock sensor and I've NEVER had to take it into the shop/dealership. I still have a smile on my face everytime I get in this car. Great gas mileage and REALLY fun to drive. I highly recommend this car to everyone young and old. LJ


Best Features

Interior... Body of the 02-03 model years And the torque engine.


Worst Features

For an upgraded model I would recommend a turbo from the factory. Nissan needs a turbo specv to compete with the other now.

Review

This car will absolutely smoke cars so many cars that are so much more money. I'm sure all driving enthusiasts will get a kick out of the "Helical" limited slip front. I don't think another front driver(stock)can hook up it's tires any better. It's really quick off the line. While the other guys engine is reving up you're blowin by. Front end also works better than any other I've driven in the corners so it's fun on the back roads too. So many kids (and Bemers) will want to race you in this car! -It's a lot of fun to own.


Best Features

Limited slip front, Great tires and wheels, Eccellent acceleration for the price, Doesn't need anything


Worst Features

All Wheel Drive
