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


I bought this car instead of a civic
and it's the biggest mistake of my
life. It's been towed back to the
dealer 4 times because it simply
refuses to start. the official
response is that I've flooded the
engine and needs a $115 fuel system
service. nissan corporate customer
service is worthless. The paint is of
very low quality, sprayed very thin,
and has orange peeled. It looks worse
than my 7 year old honda. Now it needs
a $700 airbag module that is not
covered by the warranty, at 47k miles!
cheap interior is falling apart and
showing signs of wear already. There
have been 3 or 4 recalls, which I have
not been notified of. I'll be selling
this car very soon, despite being $2k
upside down.

Best Features

when it starts, or isn't broken, or sitting at the dealer, it actually is a lot of fun to drive.

Worst Features

HONOR YOUR WARRANTY!!! use higher quality paint and apply it with a better process. use higher quality materials on the interior. customer service should have an answer other than "tough crap". make an effort to notify the owner of recalls. this car has depreciated 50% in 30 months. this car sucks!!
