Test drove SE-R with auto tranny. Salesman said someone ordered it then brought it back 3 days later. I can understand why. Car is not as powerful as numbers suggest (165hp) Car did not handle well on turns on bumpy roads, the rear end losses grip easily and also likes to bounce around over rail road tracks. Probably due to the fact it does not have independent rear suspension like most cars in its class. I think it is over-priced for what little it offers.
Fit and finnish. Reliability record of Sentra
Needs to get independent rear suspension. Needs better Auto tranny that does not rob the engine's power so much. Price should be lower by at least $1,500
