2009 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


I have been a Honda and Toyota owner for all of my life, and enjoy a sporty little sedan. The base Sentra was not that. After testing out what I could get at my price point (both foreign and domestic), I felt I had made a decent decision, but really had *no* clue until she broke in. At 2000 miles, the engine opened up in a great way. The chirp as the intake gulps in fresh air welcomes a heavy pull of acceleration. The exhaust note deepened as well. Smooth pull across the curve meets an angry red line. The suspension the sportiest I have driven in a sedan. Power is put down easily and evenly. Wholly impressed, and am looking at the Altima Coupe for my next purchase. Strong 'A' rating

Favorite Features

Overall drive- Suspension, Engine power curve and redline, exhaust note (not my usual concern, but wow!) Interior fit and finish- cloth seats are *very* comfy, dials and gauges easy on eyes. Exterior SE-R and SpecV additions save it from being ugly. Taillights are gorgeous, rims beautiful. Price

Suggested Improvements

She is tight and fast, but ugly. If you like the two former items, then this is easy to get over. The A pillars are HUGE, almost to safety concern. Intake baffling horrible- cold air going on ASAP. Mileage (my fault) XM Radio useless this far north. All faults are minor in comparison to evil grin.
