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


Fantastic deal for the price. 2.5 liter
Altima engine in a car this size/weight
makes it feel like a mini-muscle car;
can burn rubber from a dead stop,
acceleration from a stop is awesome and
power going uphill and passing from
speeds from 55-75 m.p.h. is amazing.
Handling is excellent with sport-tuned
McPherson struts and strut tower brace
up front, improved torsional rigidity
of the body due to 3rd member, large
anti-sway bars front and rear and multi-
link beam suspension in rear.

Best Features

Looks, torque/acceleration, handling, braking and Rockford-Fosgate stereo, storage bin on dash, overhead console storage for glasses and SE-R emblem enbroidered floor mats.

Worst Features

The "stone" or light gray interior on the base SE-R is rather plain, could have used an SE-R emblem on dash and darker and/or 2-tone colored interior but will all the other goodies this is forgivable.
