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


After my '89 Taurus workhorse that got be through 5 years happily, this Sentra was a godsend. I was looking for an affordable, compact, and sporty sedan, and this car fit the bill perfectly. It was a joy to drive on every occasion- though the transmission was a bit slick at times-, and I have had no problems with it since my purchase- previous owners experienced no problems to my knowledge. It's not a lavish car by any means- though the audio system is superb-, it's just a fun and simple little sedan. Gas mileage is also quite decent, and the engine has plentiful torque. It has great handling- body roll is present, but traction is abundant-, and the brakes are excellent.

Best Features

Sporty handling, great braking, loads of torque, 6 speed transmission equals lots of adjust ability with the rev range, awesome stereo, nice exterior styling (in red), excellent handling/ride quality compromise, good gas mileage, decent amount of trunk space, reliable

Worst Features

The interior build quality is slightly lacking, the gear-change can be a bit rough and the gears are a bit too closely fitted for a 6-speed in my opinion.
