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.

Pros

Large engine on small chasis. Six speed.

Cons

Transmission issues. Small back seat. Lower gas mileage.

Great Car To Tune, Especially When With Brembo Abs. — Good performance in acceleration and decent handling. Wheel spin is an issue when getting on the gas from a stop. Mileage less than other small cars. Back seat small for 4 door. Can use regular grade gasoline. Six speed transmission and shifter assembly could better. Very fun car to drive.

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.

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

Pros

6 speed manual, good torque, awesome suspension

Cons

brakes suck.  And if you really want RWD, this car ain't got it.

Great Fwd Sports Car. — Like all my cars, I need one that can hug the corners. This one has all the versatility of a small sedan, and still rips into the twisties. Best design years were 2004-2006. New style is too heavy; Older styles didn't have the best suspension, brakes or options packages. These years also have Awesome visibility... a must when racing random strangers on a busy highway.

Check Engine Light - No Power In Car — do not like having mechanical problems. driving along highway today 65 mph all of a sudden power from gas down to maximum l0 mph - maybe l5 mph -very dangerous on a very speedy highway where some are driving 80 mph. check engine light came on. managed to drive a mile onto side road, let it sit. it started up ok. what is going on. cant have this happening over and over. its much too dangerous

Pros

Acceleration, 6spd, good mileage, fun to drive

Cons

Could have a more aggressive, sporty look. Powersteering went out and the steering wheel occasionally jerks.

I Love Almost Everything About My Spec.v — My Spec. V is my baby...I only wish I could afford to give it the care it deserves and needs. I love the 6 speed transmission, sometimes I swear the car just wants to go fast and doesn't give me a choice. The power steering has gone out and I need to get that fixed. Occasionally the steering wheel jerks when I am coming to a stop or if I accelerate during a turn. I'm not sure if this is torque steer or because of the power steering or possibly the alignment. Also, it doesn't look as sporty as it should.

Pros

power:weight ratio, wide tires, trunk space

Cons

interior is not as quality as it could have been made.

Eh. — Peformance for the dollar. Gas milleage is 34/gal. The very best a Sentra can be... yeah, eaxactly,"So what?" But it's small, easy to park... has a good a/c... the front grill is cool... why does it havea rear spoiler???... the manual transmission clicks into 3rd gear... lots of drink holders... cool, sunglasses compartment by the rearview mirror...

Pros

well it saves alot of gas, it gets like 30.5 miles to the gallon in the city if you know how to drive it right, its comfy, handles very well , and i like the stereo system.

Cons

Well there isnt much that sucks about the car i dont know what to say

35

The Sentra — Well this car is a great car it has great performance, it handles very well, you can make alot of tight turns without a problem, the accelaration is very decent could be better though, the interior is black which makes it nice except on very hot days cause the inside of my car turns into an oven, but thats a price im willing to live with, other than that what i like about this car is that it is very realiable.
