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 first. 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.

Best Features

The RF stereo, low RPM HWY thanks to the 6 speed tranny. Lots of torque and instant throttle response for a 4cyl.

Worst Features

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.
