2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I chose this Sentra after having
driven the 1.8S, the 2.5S, and the
Altima 2.5S. The Altima, while nice,
was too big and "family car." The
1.8S and 2.5S Sentras were too dull,
despite the facelift (I just came from
a 98 Mitsubishi Mirage…so I know
from slow.) This SE-R was just right.
The Altima’s torque-rich, responsive
engine, the sporty size, and the solid
Nissan build quality. Plus the
updated look, while bizarre on the
"normal" Sentras, works like a charm
on the SE-R models (I think it has to
do with the paint choices.) It’s
fast…it’s loaded
(sunroof/ABS/160-Watt stereo), and
it’s a Volcanic Orange masterpiece!

Best Features

The gorgeous exterior paint. The sunroof (which opens, flips up, and closes at the touch of a button.) The amazing engine!!! The build quality. I really love this car. It is like a mini-BMW. For about $15,000 less.

Worst Features

Smallish back seat space. If you’re not wanting a sports car, the SE-R has a direct, slightly harsh ride. If you want a little more "cush" with your push, you should get the 2.5S (and leave the 1.8S for the rental fleet.)
