2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I bought my Spec v in Jan. of 2003
that is the best car I have ever
owned. The speed the car has is great.
It's a quick car and good on gas. Just
the wheels are very weak.


Best Features

Six speed transmission and big a big horsepower.


Worst Features

Make stonger wheels

2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I bought this car in April, and I've
loved every minute of it. Had already
tested Mazdaspeed, Eclipse GT, Celica
GT-S, Subaru WRX. Found this one more
fun to drive than Mits or Toyota. WRX
was really nice, but pricey. Mazda was
closest, but the dealership sucked
(Dobbs in Memphis). This car has great
power in all gears, looks flashy in
yellow, won't be confused with other
Sentras, and is a joy to drive. Great
craftsmanship, materials are very
sturdy, everything feels very tight.

I skipped the fosgate stereo. Also
avoid the stripes down the sides,
definitely don't pay for them. Floor
mats look great but aren't necessary.


Best Features

Pros: moonroof; six-speed is fun, SE-R knob; nice looking rims/wheels; aggressive grill; big torque; remote trunk opener; dash storage compartment; standard stereo is above average


Worst Features

Cons: red on black gauges are very difficult to see... you can't tell if you're speeding or not. Yellow attracts policemen; every chump with a Saturn wants to race. ok cupholders, a little tight. Range on remote is limited, you seem to have to be right in front of car.

Review

purchased 12/31/02 for about $17,600.
loaded less ABS and side airbags..base
model is only $16.2K !!
i've owned a 450+ hp NOS mustang and
my specV isn't dissapointing when you
campare apples to apples -- a compact
sedan with 7 sec 0-60mph, 15.5 1/4
mile and razor sharp handling and 6
speed for $16-18K. remember, at these
prices each $2K equates to 10% more.
Don't even think about the neon srt4 -
at least $20K IF you can find one!)
The specV is pure value..nothing fancy
inside or out to jack up the price,
just above average performance with
great price and quality -- certainly
worthy of a test drive if you're
shopping around.


Best Features

Price, Acceleration & Handling, 6- speed, awesome 17" rims, Quality, 4 doors and trunk space with pass thru.


Worst Features

clearer tach & mph display, reach 60mph in 2nd gear before redline, redesigned rear end to match the great looking front end.

Review

Very impressed overall. Got a great
price, and I am very happy with the
performance. Great buy just coming out
of college. Has plenty of guts, but
still gets almost 30 mpg. A friend
with a '00 civic si loves it.
Overall, higly recommended.


Best Features

6-speed, stereo, front seat comfort, sunroof


Worst Features

For the money, i wouldn't expect anything more. Race enthusiasts are begging for a turbo... probably already in the works for '05
