Purchased new in '05, 1.8s with the Special Edition package (a must!). Rides great, awesome stereo, great on trips, but performance with the A/T leaves a little to be desired. If you need more get up and go, get the 5 spd or drop the coin on one of the SE-Rs. Original tire size is an odd ball but you can step up a width and there are more options. This model Sentra (B15) is know for two issues, the Vapor Canister Purge Valve- easy to change in the driveway but cost $100 and the fuel pump has some valve that stops working and causes hard starting... just turn the key to on for a few seconds- once the pump primes it starts fine.
Stereo! The stereo, amp and sub enclosure are actually made by Clarion. Rockford Fosgate is only responsible for the sub. SE has SE-R look alike features (seats, grill, wheels, spoiler). Comfortable and handles great! Enjoyable to drive and MPG is awesome... 31/37, seen as high as 41.
Sluggish with A/T, cup holder size and location blocks 6 disc CD changer.
