2008 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)

Review

Excellent aftermarket seats in SE-R. Very quiet car with powerful quiet A/C. Handling is outstanding, can literally do right angle turns, no fishtail. Needs no stability control. No torque steer evident at all. Car will best EPA mpg easily - expect 25+ city and 33+ hwy. Very powerful, torquey engine with 173 ft-lbs at low, low 2800 rpm. Car will leap forward if asked. Two laner @ 40 mph barely touching gas. CVT downshifts to maintain constant speed on steep grades saving brakes and fuel. Upshifts to save fuel if you back off a tad. Overall brilliant execution of engine/tranny/suspension and brakes. Engineering excellence obvious in build rigidity and handling under power. Midsize ergos!!!

Favorite Features

Outstanding handling. Great seats. Overhead CD carrier and vanity mirrors with lights. Huge glove box. Constant attention to economy during passive driving yet performing as asked when demanded without hesitation. Perfect response. Top-of-the line Conti run-flat tires. Smoooth, smoooth,..and WOW

Suggested Improvements

1) Add an ammeter to the dash cluster. 2) Add 12 volt outlet to the trunk. 3) Offer the Spec V with the paddle-shifter CVT!!! and then 4) Extend powertrain warranty. :)
