2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


I've been driving my Sentra SpecV for
close to 6 months now, after
researching at Edmunds, I was surprised
some of the things that Edmunds/dealers
don't mention:

1. The SpecV comes standard with 22lb
17" rims, very heavy rims with equally
heavy tires that you cannot put snow
chains on, due to their size in the
wheel well. On top of that, the
Contisport tires are LOUSY in wet

2. You will not be able to put mud
guards on your car-the dealers
mentioned that Nissan was making them-
that was a lie. The side/wheel molding
does not allow mud guards to be
installed behind the front tires-so
mud/gr gets all over the doors.

Best Features

Strong engine, comfortable seats

Worst Features

Stronger paint. 6spd feels like a stick in a bag of rocks, sometimes reverse and 6th get locked out, adjustable suspension would be nice. 16" wheels instead of fad-driven 17" Noisy-reminds you you are driving an economy car.
