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


When I first bought the vehicle it was a really good value for the money. Lots of features and excellent performance. After two years of ownership and 80K km the car is still pretty solid but the performance doesn't feel as good as it did. I've had numerous recalls and the ECU decides to act up every now and then by stalling the engine - the dealer still can't figure it out. The interior is not the greatest, design or material wise, but the build quality is pretty good and the seats are great for hard driving. Although the colour of the fabric (red/mesh/black) is not the best, I think the material is excellent - with the exception of a little fraying on the seat back.

Best Features

Performance; excellent power in all ranges; features for the dollar; exterior looks; seat support; interior storage.

Worst Features

Constant ECU trouble/recalls; poor paint quality; interior dash design and materials; low fidelity stereo system.
