2006 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
This is my second Sentra; the other is a standard 2002. From experience I know the cars are reliable and strong. I decided to buy a SPEC-V because I wanted the performance and comfort. I could have gotten a Mazda 3 for less and the driving experience was similar; but the Sentra has tons more room and has good cargo room for a small car. Very likely my next car will also be a Nissan.
Power and acceleration, convenient interior controls.
More luxurious interior; I know these target the younger buyers, but a leather interior and window tint would make this car superb. They should also have steering wheel audio controls as standard.
