2002 Spec V — The engine is quite crappy due to two major design flaws but other then that i like it. Crappy body parts seem to come lose, great handling (LSD FTW) also the low end torque is awesome. Although mine is not running right now this is just what i have heard about my type of cars

Pros: Handling

Cons: Design Flaws

Spec V — It has the QR25DE engine in front of a 6 speed manual transmission. The engine is a good engine as long as you get rid of the stock exhaust early on. I did not and am now replacing my short block. But for a four cylinder it is a very fast stock car, but I cannot stress enough how quickly you need to get rid of the stock exhaust manifold and put a Header in its place. Also engines have problems holding boost due to a poor quality piston put in the block when they come stock. If you are going to supe this car up I recommend doing some serious engine work.

Pros: Great drive quality, good gas mileage.

Cons: Very bad exhaust setup and needs a better quality piston.

Baby Skyline — I love the car. I can cruise at 110 and it doesnt shake or veer to one side of the road. It gets great gas mileage for its engine displacement. I love how it has the skyline gt-r front end. I've brought it up to the Mont Tremblant Circuit and it did amazing. With gas prices these days, this car is worth every penny.

Pros: Great acceleration for it's size. Amazing grip even in the rain.

Cons: Cold Starts.....typical for the QR25E engines.

Sentra Se-r Spec V — The Sentra SE-R Spec V is a fun fast pocket rocket but engine problems plagued this car for the first 30K. While under warranty the engine was replaced and now everything is running smoothly. Build quality is OK, not a luxury car by any means. Handling is awesome but the ride is quite harsh. Brakes well and the engine is very powerful - even in 6th gear!!

Pros: Fun, affordable car that does good on gas

Cons: A bit harsh with ride quailty

Great Car — i like my ipod adapter i had installed, love the tire traction, how it grips the road. i dislike the lack of trunk space. not a lot of room. head lights could be a little more bright than they are right now. but all in all it's a great car.

Pros: handles great, good gas mileage.

Cons: small trunk space

Se-r Specv Show Car —

I bought the car brand new in 2002 with absolutely no intentions of customizing it, as it came kind of "trick" from the factory. In the end that all changed. I was the 1st person on the East Coast to have the "Octane" body kit put on the car and it was flawless thanks to my buddy Vinja. I t was so perfect that judges couldn't tell if it came from the factory like that or not. I had a fiberglass hood painted in black metallic pearl. It was lowered on a full TEIN coilover system, and on rims that were custom powder coated black and had silver polished lips as well. I was also the 1st car on the East Coast to have the FUSION led undercar kit. I customized my dash to have an LCD screen tv flip up and out of it (yknow, before it was even the cool thing to do). I also had an Sony PS2 in the car as well. For the system I had all Rockford Fosgate highs and mids, and then an AudioPipe 2000W 15inch Sub in a custom fiberglass enclosure with a crunchUSA 1500W amp. To say that hammered would be an understatement. I took this car to car shows almost exclusively and won in all of them. 3, 1st place trophies, and was also in a magazine as well.

Pros: Great performance, and a whole lotta looks from everyone. Loved this car.

Cons: Possibly the WORST drivetrain ever made by man. The engine had to be REPLACED at 30,000 miles and the Transmission replaced TWICE in that time. Absolute GARBAGE. IF YOU'RE THINKING OF BUYING A 2002 SPEC-V....D O N T!! gET THE 2003 OR LATER MODEL YEARS.
