Pros

gas mileage

Cons

bad in the winter

25

Its Okay But It Isnt Amazing — Gas mileage is amazing but it takes alot for this car to get up and go. Its prolly a great family car, but it sucks in the winter. It can be fun to drive if your a sunday driver but i sure am not.

Economic Vehicle — The car got great gas mileage and should last a long time...i will def get this car to go 500k for sure... the downside to this vehicle it really lacks on is power... there is nothing like a turbo or V8 under the hood

Nismo — 4 cyl 2.5L., 185hp (stock) mods, headers, inatake, exhaust pipes, throttle body 17" alloy wheels $11000, 19MPH city nismo mods, synthetic oil, the SE-R, especially in Spec V form, provides stirring performance. (It can run to 60 mph in just 7.5 seconds.)

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.

Better Than The Civic Si. — It is very powerful for a 2.5L 4 Cylinder. Has a lot of torque. Brakes are great and handling is probably the best part of this car. It gets decent gas mileage and it is very fun to drive since the Spec V is only matched with a six speed transmission.

Appearance, I dont like how the 04-06 front end looks. The 01-03 front end looks 10x more aggressive

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 :)
