I bought my SE-R new in 2004 it now has 240k miles on it and is still fast and super fun to drive. I have done nothing but routine maintenance with my biggest repair being tie rod ends. I did a lot of highway driving but 240k with ice cold ac and everything works fine is very impressive. Im looking to put 300k on this car. My last nissan uad 279k
My car has 70,000 miles on it. Between 50,000 and 70,000 I have had to replace the catalytic converter, the timing chain, the entire exhaust system, and a whole slew of sensors. The car has become a money pit. I enjoyed the car for the first 50,000 miles, but it has become an unreliable nightmare.
The interior is small but cozy. I'm only 5'7", and I would put that as the limit of what is a comfortable height for a driver or passenger in this car.
When it runs, the car is definitely quick and a joy to drive in fast moving traffic.
With snow tires, the car is great in the snow. With all seasons, you won't be going anywhere.
More resilient exhaust system, better sensors, better overall quality. This car is really frustrating me and making my life more difficult than it needs to be. After forking out for this next repair, it will be beyond time to get rid of it. It has become a very expensive car to own.
It's a fun little car to drive. There are other cars out there with better performance, but at a much bigger price tag. I've had the car for almost 3 years now, I love the performance. No matter how fast I'm going, if I hit the gas, it still has plenty of pick-up. Due to the size of the engine, the fuel economy isn't the best (maybe it's how I drive). The torque also makes driving in the snow a challenge. The front seats are very comfortable, the back seat is small for 2 adults, 3 adults is just uncomfortable.
The best part of the car is being able to get around that slowpoke, no matter how small a window you might have. It has push-you-into-your-seat acceleration.
The back seat is a bit of a joke. The gas tank is the same as on the lower powered models that get better mileage, so the range is surprisingly limited.
I have had the Nissan Sentra SE-R for a while now and simply love the car! Its sporty appeal is a very good quality to me. Not to mention that Nissan has a reputation that only a few makers can match when it comes to Tuner/Race cars and their quality and knowledge in the field. I feel very confident about the future performance of this car and look forward to continued business with this automaker!!!
The exterior design is pleasing to look at. The interior is sporty but stil a bit conservative while the PUNCH from the gas pedal is insane for such a small inexpensive car!!!
More interior ideas from the "Big Brother" Nissan Altima SE-R. Perhaps a bit more horsepower from the factory floor. 165-170 is great, but a 200 and slighty above would be interresting.
I picked up a SE-R a couple of weeks ago, and I'm loving it. It has good power, sweet handling, and looks sharp in the blackout color that I bought. The stock stereo system has a AUX in for your MP3 player which is a huge plus for me. An excellent car with some nice power for a low price.
