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 :)

'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.

Not A Bad Little Call — Great solid car for a compact. Its got enough power to get it going but not much more. It looks great, nice clean lines. Its pretty cheap to maintain, oil, belts, sensors, and the like. Its great on gas. Pretty fun to drive too.

Cons

Good Fast Car, But Make Sure You Really Want One Before You Buy It. — Great starter car. Too small, made in Mexico, build quality kind of poor. Required two shifts to reach 60MPH. Cool Colors, Fast for the kind of car it was. Very good stero. Safe several air bags. Cheap to buy and take care of. Civic SI would have been better

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

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

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!

Cons

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.

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.
