Great Car! — I love my Nissan. Great quality and holds up very well. She is very fast! I love chirping through gears in the six speed. It wasn't too bad to buy. Six year loan but hey it's mine now! It's super fun and it's my baby! Couldn't have asked for better.

Pros

Handling, power, steering response, nice torque, limited slip differential

Cons

build quality, light output, engine could use an ugrade.

Yeehaa — I like the car overall but it can use a lot of things. Projectors would make it look better. Build quality could be better. Performace has been ugraded in the later models but in this year it could definately be better. Its a fun car but a lot could be done to make it nicer. Although the price tag would be higher also. Great car for a teen to have.

2003 Nissan Sentra Se-r Spec V — Performance is great for a car of this category and price. With a few mods it's probably at 200hp at the engine (175hp stock). Suspension is so-so due to the live axle at the back. Fuel mileage is not terrible. Appearance is ok. I like the wheels and the front bumper. Bottom line, if you want a "cheap" fast car, I think it's the way to go.

It was really good to me, and it kept me safe when I was t-boned.

Cons

Nothing sucks about this car.

The First Sentra I Ever Drove — My first car looked like this, except it had a bra on it. It had really nice wheels, and I liked the interior. It had good pickup speed, and I felt safe driving around in it.

Pros

(all stock) Amazing car for under $19,000 brand new, sexy and unique front bumper, fog lights, power sun and moon roof, excellent interior space efficiency, 2.5L 175 HP engine, 0-60 < 8 seconds, 6-speed manual, racing seats, leather steering wheel, unique rims, four disc-brakes, 5 star crash ratings, all mirrors and windows are powered.

Cons

Solid rear axle. Not enough leg-room for four or five adult passengers to sit comfortably. The tires don't have rim guards, so bumping a curb damages the rims.

65

Functional Sports-car — (all stock) The Spec-V trim has bucket racing seats with a cool cloth covering, leather-wrapped steering wheel with silver stitching, 6-speed manual transmission, 180 ft-lbs of torque, 175 horse-power, I-4 16v 2.5L DOHC engine, 17-inch rims with 215/45/17 tires, four disc-brakes, SRS airbags, SE-R badges and a unique front bumper only found on 2002-2003 SE-R's. Unfortunately, I didn't get the Rockford-Fosgate audio package which includes a 6 CD in-dash changer and 16 inch subwoofer in the trunk. Regardless, I'm very impressed with the performance of the 6 stock speakers. There are rear and front cup holders, two cigarette lighter outlets, and a storage compartment on top of the dashboard just large enough for about 15 cd's. Due to the rarity of the 2003 Spec-V, I am resilient to modify anything, though it would be a lot of fun, and this car has a lot of potential to melt some faces when modified.

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.

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.

35

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.
