2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Got my Spec V 10 days ago and am very
happy with it so far. Still in break-
in period so I haven't been on the gas
too much, but even still it's strong up
to the 4k rpm break-in limit. The best
part is the shortage of them on the
roads. There's millions of Civics out
there, and it's a nice car, but not
many SE-Rs. From what I hear, the
Matrix/Vibe needs to hit 6k rpm before
the alternate valve timing kicks in.
Glad that's not the case on the SE-R.
A Sentra is a compact car, so don't
expect to comfortably fit a family of
four in it, but for a daily
single/double occupant driving, it's
hard to top.

Best Features

Solid build, hp-to-weight ratio, handling characteristics, sleek exterior look, extremely fun to drive.

Worst Features

More hp, just a little more rear seating room, factory tinted windows, even more hp. I feel like the Rockford Fosgate system could be better. Not sure if all the speakers are RF or just the sub, but it seems like it should be pristine to have the RF name on it.
