Spec V - it does a body good!

ReviewI wanted to replace my 2001 Z24. This car was everything I wanted, plus I get a huge Nissan supplier discount (got it for just over $15k) so there was no competition in this class. Plenty of power, nice seats, GREAT suspension, yummy exhaust sound. The base stereo is adequate, but I wish they had one with the upgrade on the lot. The six-speed shifts nicely all the way up until you go for sixth gear. The limited-slip differential can catch you by surprise if you haven't experienced one before.
Best FeaturesExcellent handling, powerful but light 2.5L engine with plenty of room to grow once aftermarket parts start to show up, nice looking without being flashy, red gauges, leather wrapped steering wheel and the SE-R logo shifter are very nice touches
Worst FeaturesMove reverse under first gear or add a better blocking mechanism, more room above cupholders (can't fit anything much bigger than a 12-oz can under there), address the annoying torque steer issue, replace those cheapie plastic AC/heat control knobs
