Disappointed with SE-R
By telal01 on


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


Test drove SE-R with auto tranny. Salesman said someone ordered it then brought it back 3 days later. I can understand why. Car is not as powerful as numbers suggest (165hp) Car did not handle well on turns on bumpy roads, the rear end losses grip easily and also likes to bounce around over rail road tracks. Probably due to the fact it does not have independent rear suspension like most cars in its class. I think it is over-priced for what little it offers.

Best Features

Fit and finnish. Reliability record of Sentra

Worst Features

Needs to get independent rear suspension. Needs better Auto tranny that does not rob the engine's power so much. Price should be lower by at least $1,500
