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


For under $20K my car can performs in a
class with $40K competitors. Contrary
to Edmunds own statistics, its capable
of 7-7.1 second 0-60 times. Most 5-
speeds will hit 60 in second gear, but
the Spec-V is geared lower in 1st and
2nd and hence you must get into 3rd to
hit 60 mph - but by that time you'll
have a smile plastered across your
face. The car feels solid, with a
suspension that makes most sedans feel
like SUVs when cornering. Dual anti-
sway bars and a front strut tower brace
lend rigidity to the frame. Edmunds
says its styling is boring, but compare
it to car makers trying to be cool with
their wavy lines, and the Spec-V simply
looks better.

Best Features

Excellent torque for quick launches. Nimble feel, easy cornering. Seats hold you in place during spirited driving. You will be spoiled and will never want to ride in a 'cushy' sissymobile again.

Worst Features

'lava-cloth' interior. gear-shifter takes getting used to.
