Pros

Good mileage, decent pickup, generally okay...

Cons

Not ideal. Drivers side door handle doesn't open from inside, so have to roll down window, window motor also not great. AC/heat leaves something to be desired despite servicing. Having transmission problems (but bought used with little history,) rats did the majority of damage to car.

Mediocre To Decent. — It's just not 'me.' I like fast & lower to ground...low maintenance...gets great gas milage & I might love it were it new when I bought it...but I have no idea of history. Decent economy car. Problems with transmission, AC/heat, and door handle at 100k or less.

Only Fill Up Every Couple Of Weeks — I love this peppy little cars fuel efficiency as well as the comfort in the front seat. There is plenty of room for my 6'3 husband in the front seat, but the back seat is cramped for anyone above average height. It has plenty of trunk room, and several cup holders front and back seat, so less mess. Overall, I like it!

'06 Nissan Sentra Se-r Spec-v (amazing Car) — I think its an awesome car. It runs great, accelerates amazingly fast compared to other cars I've driven. Doesn't cost much to own, other than the regular maintenance. It's really fun to drive! I've personally outran a 90's model Mustang Cobra, and Camaro. It's also pretty good at outrunning the new Dodge Charger Police cars haha.

Opposite Of A Honda, All Low End, Not Much Top End. — Performance - Acceleration Good, Braking Awesome, Handling Good Build Quality - Everything that has broken has been easily fixed. Appearance - Like a regular Sentra, with a few minor things Cost of Ownership - Gas Milage - Kinda crappy, maintenance - nothing hateful. Fun Factor - A blast to drive on back roads, not so fun in traffic.

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

It Would Be The Best Car In The World For Me If It Wasn't For The Starting Problem And The Rattling. — Overall, this car is great, but I have had many problems with this car it's ridiculous. First, the car won't start when it's too cold. You hear the starter goin, but the car won't start. Then, some rattling in the back of the car that even the dealership can't figure out. Appearance is cheap, though that can be fixed if money wasn't the issue. Gas mileage is wonderful, if driven right. The seats hug you when doing sharp turns. Won't go to 60 in 2nd gear. Cost? I'm not sure, my brother bought it for me as a gift.

It Is Amazing — It may not accelerate well, but braking and handling is very good. Has gone 170000 miles without anything ever going wrong. It has great gas mileage and is very fun to drive. The really big problem it has is that it is Automatic.

Not A Bad Ride But If Purchased Another $2k Should Bring You Up To Spec ;) — well i have had my car for a little over 6 months now and have had the funds to put a little money into it but from the factory its really not a bad car, BUT WARNING: there are 2 things you must do if you buy one of these cars, first get an aftermarket header, alot of people are having issues with the precat rusting and it being sucked into the engine, and second these cars all have 2 intake runners the second which comes on at 5100 rpm and is opened via butterfly valves you need to disassemble your intake manifold and loctite these butterfly screws down before you find one in your engine!!! but i only have about $500 in mine and it seems to run well against most other cars in the price range, ive got cai/h/e, nylatron shifter bushings, sts adapter plate, and buschur racing tranny fluid and mine runs top notch
