Good Enough to Buy it Twice
By 03SpecV on
2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
I purchased my second '03 Spec V
yesterday. I had my first one for
about 4 months and was rearended, and
2 weeks later before I got the damage
fixed, a 16 yr old pulled out in front
of me totalling the car. I put 7,000
miles on it in that short time. After
shopping around again, I could not
bring myself to buy the ugly 04 Spec
(Nissan's design team shouldn't have
messed with the front of the car).
Even though I paid $1200 more than my
first one, I still bought another (RF
stereo included this time). I have all
options on the new one except
the "safety" package(ABS, side
airbags) and still paid under $17500
including shipping costs.
Handling is excellent, and good torque
available to accelerate without
downshifts. Front end Skyline styling
(Why did Nissan change this on
the '04s????? - Now all Sentras look
the same, from an XE to a Spec V!).
The 5th gear was difficult to find at
first. Torque Steer has been an issue
that everyone complains about. Rear
end needs to be restyled.
