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.

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

Cons

front wheel drive

06 Ser Specv — this car is a reliable sporty all around fun car. it has a 2.5 litre inline four cylender engine, with a six speed transmision. this car has loads of torque. top end power is goo, tops out at 130 mph. I dont agree with this, because it will do 127 in 5th gear. govenor should be taken out. other than that, the car is fun.

Cheaply made, small

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

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.

Nissan Sentra 1.8 Special Edition — It accelerates fine. The 1.8L I4 has great fuel economy. The quality is solid. It is slightly on the ugly side.. but it's a great car for commuting. It is cheap to own as well. The car drives well, and can be fun. The stereo system in the special edition is nice as well.

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.

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.

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.
