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.

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.

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

Gas mileage, cost of ownership

Cons

Appearance is not so great..

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.

Overall Fun To Drive And Own — The acceleration of this car is awesome. For a four cylider it is pretty powerful. With a 6 speed in it it is so fun to drive. The Brembo brakes are also a plus. Mine being yellow is a head turner, but thats sometimes a bad thing. Pretty good on gas mileage and have only brought it in for a recall. Insurance is insane though.
