2007 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
Decided on the Sentra after having compared it against the Honda Civic Si. Liked the Sentra better as it was quieter with a more compliant ride and had more torque. The Honda was a lot more fun in the twisties and the gear box was great, but the noise of the engine would be very tiring over a long haul along with the wind noise and the suspension was a lot less compliant. I figured unfortunately I don't live in an area with plenty of open road and uninhabited mountain passes so the Sentra seemed more civilized in that respect. Seems well put together with no rattles or sqeaks as of 1000 miles so far. Averaging 26 mpg which I suppose is average for this group of car
The colour, the style. Quiet at highway speeds. Fun in the twisties, corners well. Stiff chassis. Good room in the back for passengers.
Needs more interior illumination. One touch up and down, better less clunky gear change. Illuminate all switches. Red seat belts in the rear. Better horn as its very weak and dosn't match the look of the car. Improved audio. The Rockford fosgate is just not up to the job
