2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
I've wanted this car since it first
came out in 2002. Personally, I like
the older body style a little better
but the interior on the 2004+ is a lot
nicer and is just more pleasing to the
eye. Premium stereo isn't very premium.
VERY quick car. LSD keeps it in line. 6-
spd is quite fun. Stock tires lack grip
in snow. Handles corners like a dream,
minus the slight stiffness over some
bumps. Beats most cars in it's class.
Amazing handling for being a compact
car. Very torquey. Stock tires grip
nicely when dry. Sport seats hug you
which is pleasing. And what's not to
like about a 6-spd? 2.5L CVTCS engine
with Nismo intake sounds beautiful.
Better tires for us snow drivers. Try
to improve on wheel hop of the line.
Possibly lose the solid rear axle.
Stock stereo, even the premium, could
be improved greatly.
