    2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V Review

    Thumbs Up — My Nissan Sentra Spec-V is a good all around car. It gets a range of 20-40 mpg depending on how its driven. It can clear a 1/4 time in the low 15 second range. It handles well for a front wheel drive vehicle. It is very light, but roomy. I can comfortably fit 5 people (including myself) in the car. The trunk is fairly spacious. Like I said, the Spec-V is nice all around.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Econ-friendly with decent speed and room

    Cons: Pre cat issues, but those can be taken care of or removed

    Great Little Car, Wouldn't Trade It For Anything! — Has very good acceleration for an N/A I-4. Some of the interior feels flimsy and seems to break rather easily. The design on the seats leaves something to be desired. All in all a great car to drive, good on gas mileage if you're not too hard on the throttle. It's really nice having the extra doors/seating for driving your friends around at all hours of the night, and the fact that you don't have to sacrifice performance for those extra doors is one of my favorite things about this car and cars like it. Most importantly, it's fun to drive! Unfortunately having a pocket-rocket like this can cause you to drive unsafely, so exercise some caution while driving it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's fun!

    Cons: Flimsy interior, be gentle!

    02 Spec-v: Great Price For Great Performance. — This is my first "sports" car but it handles like a dream. The stock handling is the best part of the car. Imagine a Sentra with a 2.5 Altima motor stuffed in it with good suspension and sway bars. It also has some sort of variable valve timing much like V-Tech and an exhaust that claims to do the same when the RPM's climb. It takes a lot of its styling from the Skyline its older brother which has made quite a name for itself.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Gearbox

    Two Thumbs Up! — As an entry level tuner toy, this is a great car. The boxy sedan looks are unfortunate, but the 'wolf in sheep's clothing' effect is something I like, and people who know will recognize the red 'R' on the badge, and it's significance. The suspension upgrades make this car extremely agile, and the extra power features, in combination with the v-tech engine and 6 speed transmission really make the car scoot. Easy on gas, especially considering the sporty build, and I never had to do anything other than scheduled maintenance in the entire time of ownership.

    Pros: A great mix of the fun and practical. Great bang for the buck.

    Cons: Might not be enough pop for a serious gearhead.

    Overall A Fun Drive — Overall has tons of power right off the line, but the wheel hop seems to have lots of pull through first and second gear. First gear only lasts 10 mph too. Overall a great car to drive and fun to drive across town every day. A steal for 6,000 dollars. Comes with a rather flashy red/black interior with a Rockford Fosgate deck and 10" sub. 6 speed manual keeps you happy too. Only major problems I have heard about involve pushing the car beyond what it was meant to do, and doing so has a rather terrible costs of the blown engine kind.

    Pros: Great speed for the price

    Cons: Low MPG in a need for high MPG
