Pros

FUN FUN FUN!  It was an awesome entry level, souped up, stock ecomony car I could have asked for!  Handled great and had power to spare.  I miss this car the most of all of my "owned" cars.

Cons

The cup holders blocked the radio controls.

Zooooommmmm! — This was my first brand new car! It had everything: sunroof, moonroof, power everything, dialed suspension, stick shift... and then I got married and he conned me into trading it in. Never let them trade in your vehicle!!!

Great Overall — Amazing first car, best mpg around for the price, great reliability, not that great on looks. Have had the car for six years now and had very few problems with it. Some oil leaks and 2 changes of starters. Get one of these lol.

Pros

handled good, but with aftermarket arts removed it lacked the get up and go that i enjoyed

Cons

a lot of top end, but not too much torque or hp

Nice Sporty Little Car — The sentra is a good car overall, i hear a lot about people having problims with the 1.8 liter, but if it has the 2.0 liter you're good to go. i started to have some issues around 250k miles, but that was because i rode it hard, if i had taken it easier on it, it would have easily hit 300k with no problems

Cons

Rear beam suspension.

An Excellent Car For The Money. — Almost 120,000 miles and still running strong with no major malfunctions. I love the car, great potential for performance (not too shabby in stock trim either!) with the SR20DE under the hood. The transmission is rather weak though, only capable of handling about 200hp when driven properly, but there is plenty of options to bolster that. The chassis and suspension is good, although the multi-link rear beam is less than optimal, the MacPherson front setup isn't too bad, but had Nissan chosen a double A arm setup or similar I wouldn't be too put off. Built quality is superb, no strange squeaks, knocks, or rattles and everything is held down as it should be. I love the interior, clean and simple black dash and trim, although the choice on fabric pattern could have been better, no matter though as it can be easily changed. Exterior is good, I'm a bit undecided on certain aspects of the front end but it certainly grows on you. Cost of ownership is very minimal, aside from gasoline and oil there isn't much you have to pay for. The fun factor is astronomical, perhaps it's just something that comes with your first car or something that you've put time and money towards, but I can honestly say I love my car!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

slightly rattly, small trunk

Se Love — This car is the perfect sleeper. Most people can barely tell that it's not a standard Sentra. The sr20de will absolutely smoke any other naturally aspirated 4 banger. I would put money on it. Also with kyb struts and eibach springs, it handles and rides like a (good) new car. Peace
