2005 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

My son test-drove cars for me and decided on the Nissan Sentra. Brought it home and I loved it. Had it for three years and 1 week, made the last payment, and the next day the Service Engine Soon light came on. Drove immediately to the dealership and they said the head gasket was going and needed to be replaced -- on a three year old car. Are they programmed to have problems as soon as they are paid for? Cost me $1,245 yesterday and they recommended on the receipt that I put it an for an additional $600 more in repairs. If you keep up with oil changes, etc., a car should last longer than three years.


Best Features

Mileage, ease of handling, reliability.


Worst Features

Placement of CD changer and reliable engine parts.

2005 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

It's a fun little car to drive. There are other cars out there with better performance, but at a much bigger price tag. I've had the car for almost 3 years now, I love the performance. No matter how fast I'm going, if I hit the gas, it still has plenty of pick-up. Due to the size of the engine, the fuel economy isn't the best (maybe it's how I drive). The torque also makes driving in the snow a challenge. The front seats are very comfortable, the back seat is small for 2 adults, 3 adults is just uncomfortable.


Best Features

The best part of the car is being able to get around that slowpoke, no matter how small a window you might have. It has push-you-into-your-seat acceleration.


Worst Features

The back seat is a bit of a joke. The gas tank is the same as on the lower powered models that get better mileage, so the range is surprisingly limited.

2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I just got this car but it's way better then what I traded in for it. It is very comfortable. I love the hood of the car. The only complaint I have is that the tail end of the car doesn't really have any shape. So I'm gonna put a spoiler on it. The gas mileage is good and over all I'm very happy with my selection.


Best Features

The hood and the interior.


Worst Features

Make the tail end have more body to it.

Review

Oil it, gas it and step on it - this car requires little attention and will surpass all others in its class. Try one out and see.


Best Features

Good gas mileage, and the way it handles on the road. The car cruises well at 75 mph and is very smooth.


Worst Features

Beverage holder area need more room away from the cd player.

Review

Even tho I bought my Spec V with a lot of miles on it, it still runs real good. It's a champ on the streets. It's a sleeper car stock and a beast with mods. I love driving it and seeing the looks on peoples faces when I fly past them in their V6s. Great toy to have.


Best Features

Everything from the accel to the tourque.


Worst Features

Stock turbo haha
