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 :)

Was losing oil for a year but stopping losing it after it got broken in.

2006 Nissan Sentra Se-r Spec V — I love this car! Its the 2.5 Spec V so it has awesome power. I think it looks great for a 4 door. It can get 27 mpg or better if driven right, but if you hot rod it you're not gonna get that. The only problem was oil leaking from some seal that they messed up on for this year's model. It doesn't seem to be losing anymore oil now that its broken in though.

Great Sporty Car. — I went from a 2002 Sentra GXE to a 2006 SE-R Spec V. All I can say is wow. 6 speed manual on a 2.5L inline 4 with 175 HP. When I first saw this car, I fell in love. It was a great test drive, and I left with this car in the end. Fun to drive and good MPG.

Great Car For The Money — The car is amazing, dont THINK that there is another car out there for the price, that isnt turbo,supercharged,with/out awd, that can get this kind of performance. It has 180 lb/ft of torque,AND its NA,has a nice shifting 6-speed,break gut-tickling handling this car is great!

Special Edition — I give this car a strong thumbs up. Good acceleration for a small car. For a small car it provides a really comfortable ride. Great power when accelerating. I didn't notice any delay doing take off. Suprisely quiet for a small car. Great mileage and smooth ride.

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
