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


If you buy a Nissan, buy it expecting
never to see the dealer again, as they
are about worthless. The car is
incredibly fun to drive, is responsive
to simple performance add ons like a
header/exhaust system, and is
relatively cheap to run. Get 24-5 mpg
avg. For 16g you can't
get a car that's funner to drive. At
this price point there is no better
car. For a bit more the imprezza's a
good buy, but not as fun. I'd
recommend the spec v only if you love
shifting and/or live in a snowy
climate, as the differential could come
in handy there.

Best Features

SER is good in snow with Blizzaks, good on dry with any decent perf tire. Luvs corners.

Worst Features

The shifter sux from 2nd to 3rd, the steering wheel doesn't come down enough to suit me, stock tires and sound system suck, seats could be more comfortable, and throttle response could be better.
