2005 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


I purchased the car after going through hell with a 2k3 Mazda Protege5. Had the protege5 4 months & visited Mazda 9 times within that time period. Anyway I will have owned the SE-R for 3 weeks on Monday (7/4/05) and have put 2250 miles on it already. Nissan has addressed all issues with car since 2k2 and 2k5 SE-R is very refined and a great improvement over early models. QR25DE engine is very responsive, powerful, quiet yet very refined. Skyline seats are firm but comfortable. Exterior looks good with nice wheels and kit. Interior fit and finish is excellent and materials look and feel of high quality but collects way 2 much dust. Handles and rides sporty.

Favorite Features

Refinement over early models, sporty looks/handling, fit & finish, reliability, exhaust note (deep), powerful yet crystal clear tweeters, 27- 28MPG (city) 29-30 MPG (highway), more fun 2 drive than a civic/corolla, low levels of NVH & wind noise, QR25DE sounds like a little V-6, quick acceleration

Suggested Improvements

Turning radius, Sun visors feel cheap like cardboard, SE-R Spec V Requires Premium Fuel but SE-R doesnt, on rough pavement ride can be rough, refined but not as refined as a honda civic but is more fun 2 drive and cost less, noise from stock tires on rough payment, subwoofer could sound better
