I test drove the top of the line Honda
Civic, the 2003 Corrolla S, and the
Ford Focus and this car hands down blew
the competition away! It is very fast,
and a total blast to drive. The sun
roof is quieter than most at 70 mph. If
you like acceleration, you will like
this car. I presently have 7,900 miles
on it and only one factory defect upon
delivery. (The auto trunk release did
not work). Nissan needs to advertise
this model more. If they did, I believe
they could corner the small car market.
I never would have considered a Nissan
for this size car if it wasn't for a
friend of mine that advised me to check
The front of the SE-R has a very
aggressive look. Nissan did a nice job
on the 16" six spoke mag wheels. The
leather steering wheel does not hide
the guages. The jack for the car is
very easy to use. I like the Timing
Chain instead of a Timing Belt.
Change the rear tail lights. The
Subwoofer is too small and is easy to
overpower. The door arm rests are too
low. The center console arm rest needs
to be raised. This car must use "HIGH
TEST" that fact is buried in the Owners
Manual. This car should have leather
seats as an option.
