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


Bought the car new and had lots of problems within the first three years of ownership. The SE-R has a lot of issues that were never properly recalled such as a faulty pre-cat, poor MAF sensor, wheel hop, exterior paint, and a few other things. Had my engine replaced under warranty at 30,000 miles due to screws breaking off my intake runners and blowing up my engine. A simple locktighting of the screws would fix that issue. Aftermarket modification like motor mount inserts and header will get rid of some of the mechanical problems. Also, the plastic undercarriage pieces will gradually fall out. After dealing with those issues the car has gone strong the past 3 years

Best Features

Looks much better than the newer Sentras, strong engine minus all the bugs, 6-speed, easy to mod, good on gas.

Worst Features

Stock Conti tires stink, paint isn't the best, RF sound system not good, early engine issues, not the best quality
