Handling

Cons

terrible for winter

25

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.

Cons

Not much power.

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.

I Like It. Id Suggest It To A Friend — Over all good car. It performs well. i think one of the best cars for its money. owned for almost 3 years i beat it up quite a bit and it takes the beatings. never replaced anything on it (50k miles down) Not even break pads yet. Appearance - eh its not ugly but not a flash car ether

Pros

Torquey, stylish, great fit & finish, affordable

Cons

Pre-cat failure, poor gas mileage

65

Great Daily Driver, And Great To Toss Around At The Track Also! — The Spec V overall is a great car in the sport-compact class. It's well styled inside and out, has peppy performance, and a very reasonable price tag. Gas mileage is not what you would expect from such a small car, averaging 23 miles per gallon. The build quality overall seems pretty solid, with little to no rattles/squeaks. The performance overall is good. Acceleration is brisk from 1st to 3rd gear, after that this car feels like it falls flat on it's face. Braking and handling are comparable to most any other performance based sport compact car on the market. All in all, this is a fun, quick, sporty compact four door to drive. I'd recommend this vehicle to others.

Strong Transmittion, Helical LSD, 6-Speed

Cons

TRACTION!

25

2006 Boosted Sentra Spec-v — The car was super fun to drive when it was stock, even more so now. Cost of ownership is low as long as you keep it normally aspirated. The build quality in my opinion is pretty top notch for the price of the car.

Pros

Hard acceleration and go-kart like handling

Cons

A little more time could have been spent vetting out the interior issues

25

For Better Or Worse, I Love This Car. — Performer - Fast acceleration confident braking, composed through the corners. Build Quality - Interior is comfortable and rugged, but rattles and squeaks will make you want death. Appearance - Love it. Cost of Ownership - Great, so far. Fun Factor - You will be a hoon every time you get behind the wheel.

Good Car But Never Gonna Be A Race Car Without Alot Of Money — love the 6 speed. strong 2.5. wish its rev limiter was higher. clean as a new car. needs to be lowered, possible lip kit, good gas bout 30 mpg if i dont drive like an ass, never had a serious problem except exhaust but thats my own fault. great car to drive awesome handling.
