06 Nissan Sentra Se-r Spec V — I Recently bought and 06 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V. I havent owned it for long, but here is my knowledge on this subject. Performance: This car has alot to offer for a decent price ( 0-60 7.2 sec. w/ 6- Speed manual) Thats what Nissan says anyway, But I tell you it feels a whole hell of alot faster than that. The reason for that is that The (2.5L I-4 engine) produces ( 175 HP and 180 Tor.) in a car that has a curb weight of (2710 lbs) which is pretty dam light. and the high quality tires help deliver all that torque and Horse Power to the ground, which in turn launches you forward. The thing that is really amazing about this car is how it handls. This car has very ridged suspension which helps it corner like it was on rails. Also My car came with the Brimbo Break kit which drastically improves its stopping power, which I believe is very important. Build Quality: Its a Nissan Enough said Appearance:I think it looks very stylish, But I dont really care for the front. I wish Nissan had kept the same front from the 01-03 models their front end looks 10x more aggressive. But for the most part I love it. Cost of Ownership: Its list price New was around 20-21K, and the maintenace is very low on this model anyway. It gets decent Gas Mileage with about(20-21 city) and (29-32 Highway) Fun Factor: Oh Hell yes! it has to be the most fun car I have ever driven for 20K. I mean I do own one after all :)

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

Special Edition — I give this car a strong thumbs up. Good acceleration for a small car. For a small car it provides a really comfortable ride. Great power when accelerating. I didn't notice any delay doing take off. Suprisely quiet for a small car. Great mileage and smooth ride.

Pros

The car is reliable. It's also handling well enough to appreciate the ride. Would not exchange it for a Corolla, even a brand new one!

Cons

Brakes could be better although there are already way better than on the '95-'99 Sentra

I Love My Yellow Sentra. — It's very economical and easy to drive. The gas mileage is great. Don't get this car for a ton of room. Also, it sucks in the snow. Overall, it's a great car to own as a single guy and parks very well in the city.

'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.

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!

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.
