Pros

Gas mileage and sound system on the 1.8 special edition

Cons

It is a little unstable at times

Good Car For The Buck — I love the gas mileage and sound system it comes with. I only used three tanks to for a 800 miles trip, not bad at all. I wish it was a bit better looking, but it does the job for the price!

Cup hinders and cargo space

Sweet Spec V (bottled Beverages Only Please!) — I really enjoy driving this car! Its quick and light hugs the road around corners and has great top end power. There is no cargo space and cup holders are terrible!!!! Its still kind of worth it. A room top box for traveling helps a lot!

It's a good safe car & I have a bad back & the seats adjust for comfort level in butt area & that was another factor of why I picked this model & was cute.

Not a car for racing

A Good Dependable Safe Car. — it's in good shape & if U would need used parts there not easy to find least around here that is & I don't drive much & don't find driving fun never really ever did hence the low miles I just goto apt's & to store about it & my mom bought the same brand car & I didn't know mine was lil more fancy then hers & she liked it she does drive allot & traded hers in & got another one just newer & I just paid it off & ready for something different..

Efficient Family Car — Bought this car in 2010 with about 38,000 miles. We have put 26,000 miles on it. It does not have much "get up and go" but is wonderful on gas. The only problem we have had is that the car takes at least 2 turns of the key for it to start but it always starts.

Excellent Value — Great on gas,fun to drive and no mechanical problems what so ever.The SE package makes it a little sportier with the spoiler and 16 inch wheels with a nice stereo system it also has better safety features in the abs brakes and side airbags.

I Like It, It's Sporty But Not A Sports Car. It Needs Help, But They're Not Bad Cars. — Its a fun car to drive, not great though. It needs some more power for sure. It is full of quirks and things that don't work. The fuel pumps don't hold pressure in the line, so it takes a while of priming to start. The window regulators are junk. The brakes leave something to be desired, although it will stop quickly. Gas mileage is a joke, 20mpg in town average from a 2.5 is horrible. Oh, it's ugly too, but like a pug. It's so ugly that I like it.

4-door, light, 2.5L engine

Cons

Known to get transsmission issues, not small 4-cylinder high mpg

Nissan Owns — Good acceleration with 180 lb of torque stock. Good handling but need a new tire. Front break rotor needs to be replaced, left channel audio needs to be fixed. Real fun to drive having an Apexi N1 exhaust, Megan racing header w/o cat, and an AEM cold air intake.
