2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
The Nissan Sentra Spec V looks great on
paper, and it does drive very well at
After about a month after buying the
car, the transmission became clunky and
it even grinds gears during shifts when
it is cold out. The car can take up to
15 minuets for the transmissioin to
loosen up. Multiple dealers have told
as that this is normal operation, but
the operation changed after I got it.
There were some cosmetic problems with
the paint, body molding, and trunk and
engine lid that was all fixed under
warranty. Mold in the AC system was
fixed on the 3rd try.
I would not recomend this car to
anyone. Build quality is very poor.
The RF stereo, low RPM HWY thanks to
the 6 speed tranny. Lots of torque and
instant throttle response for a 4cyl.
Overall build quaity. The transmission
needs major improvements. The AC turns
on when the defroster is used and stays
on untill the car is turned off.
Higher qulity brakes.
