2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
I have owned my 2003 Spec V for about a year now and absolutely love it! I was fortunate enough to purchase the car with a nismo short shifter and nismo rear sway bar. Handling on the car is second to none. I love the power it has, which is great for a four cylinder. It's also a great "sleeper" car. I have yet to lose a race (no, I don't race evos and stis). My point being it's a blast to drive and fun to drive hard. I have not had any problems with the car (I've put 20,000 mi on the car and it has 65,000) and hope to keep it for a long time.
6 speed, really like the front end, faster than it looks and an overall blast to drive. Now has a good aftermarket selection.
Higher redline (I know the 07 does, but I think it's ugly) a bit quieter, but no real complants.
