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


For V-Spec owners:
Although the Sentra should be
inexpensive to maintain (econosport
car), there are some hidden costs
which are shocking. I recently hit a
pothole with my right front tire at
about 45mph. The rim was severly bent
as a result. Since you may not be
aware, Nissan charges $580 for ONLY
THE WHEEL! The tire is another $140!
So the Sentra, on its face seems like
a bargain but hidden costs can get
you. Needless to say I ordered 4
aftermarket wheels/tires from
www.tirerack.com for $1150 instead of
paying $720 for ONE Nissan
wheel/tire. If you don't believe
this, call your local dealership for a
price quote on a new Spec-V wheel.

Best Features

Rims look nice, but for $580 I can get a Porsche or Mercedes AMG wheel. Something is very wrong about that. This is only a Sentra Nissan, don't get carried away!!

Worst Features

I would recommend to anyone that bends a wheel to just sell your Nissan OEM wheels and buy aftermarket or you'll be spending money out the ying yang (especially if you live on the East Coast in the land of potholes)
