2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

If you buy a Nissan, buy it expecting never to see the dealer again, as they are about worthless. The car is incredibly fun to drive, is responsive to simple performance add ons like a header/exhaust system, and is relatively cheap to run. Get 24-5 mpg avg. For 16g you can't get a car that's funner to drive. At this price point there is no better car. For a bit more the imprezza's a good buy, but not as fun. I'd recommend the spec v only if you love shifting and/or live in a snowy climate, as the differential could come in handy there.

Favorite Features

SER is good in snow with Blizzaks, good on dry with any decent perf tire. Luvs corners.

Suggested Improvements

The shifter sux from 2nd to 3rd, the steering wheel doesn't come down enough to suit me, stock tires and sound system suck, seats could be more comfortable, and throttle response could be better.
