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


Review

This is a car for a true enthusiast.
There is now other way to get close to
the world's greatest hot rod, the
Skyline GT-R V Spec, for under $18,000
used. If you just want value for the
money, stick to the 2.0 GXE or SE-R,
but for that extra adrenalin rush on
the road and at an import car show go
for the bigger engine, nicer wheels,
rockford fosgate in-dash with an 8"
boom generator in the trunk which is
part of the "audio fanatic" package.
The car does 120mph as easily as 50mph
thanks to a great stock body kit. This
will be a classic that everyone will
want once the Civic craze dies out in
the near future.


Best Features

Front air dam, McPherson suspension, racing seats, aggressive road stance.


Worst Features

Must reconsider the 2004 body change to save the great name! Next year's model is a stock Sentra with a big engine, awful wheels, and terrbile front.

Love this car.

Review

I have a 03 spec v and its a great
little car for the money. You can't
get all the features and all the
performance from any other import for
even 4 grand more. And honda doesn't
even know what torque is.


Best Features

175 hp 2.5 4 cylinder 17" wheels sunroof, decent stereo, power everything, and all for $18,500 !!!!!!


Worst Features

A little more hip room, do something with the cheap rubbery 6 speed shifter please!!!!

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.
