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


Review

This is the fourth Nissan I've owned
('83 Datsun 310gx, '95 Quest, '95
Sentra, '02 Sentra) and I am very
pleased with this car. I'm a shorter
person and the car fits me like a glove.
My friends who are taller (6' and up)
are quite amazed that they fit so well
in the front seat. As for the back seat
-- well, that is another story. But
after test driving the Mazda Protege 5
and others, the price and quality were
unbeatable. Get the Synergy package --
it's well worth it!


Best Features

Price was great ($12,700), speakers are very nice and the car rides very well on long trips.


Worst Features

Fix the map lights and try to filter the AM portion of the radio a bit better. Much crackle with distant signals.

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


Review

I have over 30,000 miles on the car and
it's only a little over a year old. I
love to drive this car. I've done
every engine mod including taking out
the balance shafts and grounding the
knock sensor and I've NEVER had to take
it into the shop/dealership. I still
have a smile on my face everytime I get
in this car. Great gas mileage and
REALLY fun to drive.
I highly recommend this car to everyone
young and old.

Best Features

Interior... Body of the 02-03 model years And the torque engine.


Worst Features

For an upgraded model I would recommend a turbo from the factory. Nissan needs a turbo specv to compete with the other now.

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


Review

I've had my Nissan for over a year. I
*LOVE* it. I have a GXE with the
Synergy Package and rear spoiler. I
put on about 16,000 miles this last
year. It's a spunky car... so much fun
to drive. It's great on long-distance
drives.

The customer service at the
dealerships are wonderful.


Best Features

Sound system is great. I love all the compartments in the car and how the backseats fold down for storage. Gas mileage is great.


Worst Features

The AC could be more powerful on the Driver's side. I wish the trunk was a little bigger.

2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Sentra has many benefits over other
cars of its class including Civics,
Corollas,& Focus.For the same if not
more features the price is much
lower. I also haven't had to do any
major maintenance.It is also much
better powered and performs better than
the Ford Passing on highways is
extremely easy for a car of its size &
you can barely hear the engine while
acceleating.Shifting is very smooth as
is the ride for a car of its size
Only two complaints.One,front driving
seats are a bit uncomfortable & gas
mileage is not as good as Corolla or
Civic.Only 28 in the city & 32 on
highway.


Best Features

Bose, 6-speaker stereo system=excellent Outside look=sporty without looking overly so. Also doesn't have the cheap plastic look of an 80s bumper. Excellent trunk space for a small sedan.


Worst Features

Gas Mileage Front seats (Be nice but necessary to have a 6-disk CD changer option)

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


Review

I test drove the Sentra, Corolla,
Protege, and Civic. All were good cars.
I got a really good deal on the Sentra
and that's why I chose it. Now after
15,000 miles I've had no problems.


Best Features

Overall everything is good.


Worst Features

Needs a little better and less noisy acceleration.
