2002 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

BOUGHT THIS LIL GEM FROM A PRIVATE
PERSON AT 12K WITH ONLY 7800 MILES. I
HAVE DRIVEN HER HARD FOR 2.5 MONTHS NOW
AND AM JUST A PLEASED CUSTOMER
COMFORTABLE AND EFFICIENT. GREAT
STYLING. THE ONLY THING SHE LACKS IS A
LITTLE BIT O JAM WHEN I STOMP DOWN ON
THE GAS. ONCE UP TO SPEED THOUGH THIS
BABY ROCKETS JUST FINE. DAMN THE MAP
LIGHTS THOUGH!NISSANS RUN FOREVER TOO!


Best Features

PRICE AND STYLE CAN'T BE BEAT.


Worst Features

MAP LIGHTS...HATED EM. NEEDS SOME PUMPING UP IN THE ENGINE BUT I GUESS THAT WOULD BE THE SE-R OR SPEC V

2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

If you like fun to drive compact sports
cars this is your car!! Power is good,
especially for the price range.
Handling is amazing once again
especially for the price range. 6
speed tranny is somewhat clunky but
once you get used to it, it works
well. Compared to other cars in this
price range nothing comes close.


Best Features

Suspension and handling are simply amazing and improve drastically once stock tires get changed to almost anything other then continental. Also great braking with zero brake fade.


Worst Features

New tires make a big difference. I haven't tuned mine but understand the car responds great to intake and exhaust mods. Wouldn't touch the suspension or brakes though, Nissan rally sport did good enough allready.

2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This car is absolutely amazing! I love
the six speed tranny, it's not sloppy
feeling and it has a nice positive feel.
This thing handles like it's on rails!
This is the most fun front-wheel drive
car i've ever driven. Kills civics and
integras without a problem because it
actually has what Nissan likes to call
TORQUE. Great job Nissan!


Best Features

Front styling is awesome, reminescent of Skyline R34, 6 speed, handling, sound system


Worst Features

I'm gonna have to agree with everyone on the fact that the rear end is ugly. The rest of the styling is awesome, but the tail is just...yuck...the 04 model Spec V is ugly, the spec V was supposed to be different but for 04 all models of Sentra look the same except for wheels.

2002 Nissan Sentra XE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Same quality as a Corolla or Honda
Civic, but less expensive. I've owned
my car for 20 mths and I've driven it
21000 miles and I haven't had one
problem with it. It has many great
features such as compact disc, auto,
air it has enough zip to get you where
you need to go safely and comfortably.
The best thing about the car is it's
affordability. I paid $12,300.00 total
out the door for my brand new Sentra.
I can't say enough good things about
the car!


Best Features

Durability, quality, reliability, fuel efficient


Worst Features

More color choices in the interior of the car. The gray is a bit boring
