A fun little car

2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
Review
THIS SENTRA SER SPEC V IS A FUN CAR TO DRIVE, WITH LOTS OF TORQUE AND PLENTY OF POWER. THERE IS NO TURBO LAG OR WAITING FOR THE VTEC MECHANISM TO KICK IN, PRETTY MUCH LIKE DRIVING A FRONT WHEEL DRIVE MUSTANG, IF THERE IS ONE. THE SUSPENSION SETTING IS FIRM BUT COMFORTABLE. FORTUNATELY, NISSAN HAS INSTALLED THE HELICAL LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL INTO THIS VEHICLE, OTHERWISE IT WOULD BE A REAL CHALLENGE TO DRIVE THIS LITTLE MONSTER IN RAIN OR SNOW. BODY STRUSTURE IS IMPRESSIVE, COMBINED WITH THAT PRIMITIVE REAR BEAM AXLE, IT HANDLES MUCH LIKE A GOLF GTI, WHICH IS NOT A BAD THING.
Favorite Features
THE POWERTRAIN IS THE GEM, IT REALLY EXCELLS. IT MAY NOT BE AS FAST OR AGILE AS A HONDA ON THE RACE TRACK, BUT THIS IS A FAR BETTER DAILY DRIVER THAN MOST OF THE COMPACT CARS BECAUSE IT GIVES YOU WHAT YOU REALLY NEED IN TRAFFIC, WHICH IS TORQUE AND PLENTY OF THEM.
Suggested Improvements
THE INTERIOR IS PLAIN AND THE SOUND SYSTEM DOESN'T COME WITH CD CHANGER. THE WEAKEST LINK OF THIS CAR IS THE NOTCHY 6 SPEED TRANSMISSION, I THINK NISSAN SHOULD LEARN A THING OR TWO FROM HONDA OR TOYOTA.
