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


For under $20K my car can performs in a class with $40K competitors. Contrary to Edmunds own statistics, its capable of 7-7.1 second 0-60 times. Most 5- speeds will hit 60 in second gear, but the Spec-V is geared lower in 1st and 2nd and hence you must get into 3rd to hit 60 mph - but by that time you'll have a smile plastered across your face. The car feels solid, with a suspension that makes most sedans feel like SUVs when cornering. Dual anti- sway bars and a front strut tower brace lend rigidity to the frame. Edmunds says its styling is boring, but compare it to car makers trying to be cool with their wavy lines, and the Spec-V simply looks better.

Best Features

Excellent torque for quick launches. Nimble feel, easy cornering. Seats hold you in place during spirited driving. You will be spoiled and will never want to ride in a 'cushy' sissymobile again.

Worst Features

'lava-cloth' interior. gear-shifter takes getting used to.
