Pros

Great economical car, 24 mpg city / 32 mpg highway, Clean Interior

Cons

Really Slow Car

35

My 2003 Nissan Sentra 1.8 Gxe — Well its a decent daily driver. The performance is not the best for a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder at 129hp. Exterior and interior are nice and clean. Gas mileage is around 24 mpg city / 32 mpg highway. So yea Its a decent car for your normal day to day driving.

Pros

great handling, acceleration, speed, nice speedometer decent stock stereo systen

Cons

cloth only, no power seats, still a nissan sentra regardless.

Good Beginner Car — car is fun to drive, but not too many options and not too classy. it isnt a terrible looking car but its not very appealing. the interior tries a little to hard when in reality it is just kind of plain.

Hard ride... if you call that a con

Super Fun, If You Like Go-carts — Very stiff suspension, but thats what I wanted right? Don't complain of things you don't like if its not yours.

Pros

Great performance for the price.

Cons

Does not get as good gas mileage as the 2.0 or 1.8. Engine modifications are scarce and hard to find.

Affordable, Practical, And Still Packs A Punch! — The QR25 makes a lot of low end torque making this car a lot of fun driving around town. Six-speed manual transmission with LSD is standard for the spec-v and optional on the SE-R. The seats are very supportive and good for "swift" driving and sharp turns but are still comfortable enough for road trips. Decent amount of room in the back seat and trunk.

A Joy — the sentra spec v is seriously a smooth and fun car to drive it handles well it has great a acceleration great power the interior is very comfertable, it would be a little nicer if it came with a better suspension kit but the standard suspension aint to bad. overall I love the car its a joy to drive.

I Like The Ride And Tight Feel Of The Drive. — The 2003 Sentra rides nicely and has good feel at the wheel. The 1.8l engine is peppy.
