    I Like It, It's Sporty But Not A Sports Car. It Needs Help, But They're Not Bad Cars. — Its a fun car to drive, not great though. It needs some more power for sure. It is full of quirks and things that don't work. The fuel pumps don't hold pressure in the line, so it takes a while of priming to start. The window regulators are junk. The brakes leave something to be desired, although it will stop quickly. Gas mileage is a joke, 20mpg in town average from a 2.5 is horrible. Oh, it's ugly too, but like a pug. It's so ugly that I like it.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fun, economical spirited driver

    Cons: Not a reliable commuter for DD use.

    Nissan Owns — Good acceleration with 180 lb of torque stock. Good handling but need a new tire. Front break rotor needs to be replaced, left channel audio needs to be fixed. Real fun to drive having an Apexi N1 exhaust, Megan racing header w/o cat, and an AEM cold air intake.

    Pros: 4-door, light, 2.5L engine

    Cons: Known to get transsmission issues, not small 4-cylinder high mpg

    Great Car For A College Student!! — I love my baby! It definitely turn necks when I'm crusing. Fast acceleration, handling use to be better, steering squeeks, need to get it fix. Good gas mileage, fun to drive, 6-speed. Appearances are great!! especially with the sunroof on summer ;] But I deffinitely recommend a Spec V to anyone, just keep in mind its not the fastest ride on the road..

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good looks, fast, affordable, reliable, great for a commuter, good factory stereo system.

    Cons: steering, cup holders

    An Excellent Small Sports Sedan With Great Value. — My Spec-V was the first car I found when looking for a car to replace my archaic '89 Taurus wagon, and I couldn't have been happier with it. It came with everyone I wanted and nothing I did not; the 2.5 liter engine provide ample power, it handled the corners with ease thanks to the slick tired, added limited slip differential and upgraded shocks/dampers- without compromising ride quality-, the interior was basic but functional and well-designed, the exterior was attractive without being too conspicuous, and it was overall a great car to own. It wasn't as economical as other small sedans, due to the larger engine, but the low-end torque helped it maintain decent fuel economy. Overall the Sentra SE-R Spec-V is a great car for anyone who wants a sporty economy sedan. Unfortunately, I got in a hit and run- a driver in a F-150 hit me and ran off-, which resulted in my car being totaled, so my time with this machine was cut short. Still, the passenger and I sustained no injuries despite the speed the F-150 hit us at- rear end collision-, which is a testament to the Sentra's build quality and safety.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive, relatively economical, as practical as a regular Sentra

    Cons: Gear-shift was a bit rough at times.

    Great Fwd Sports Car. — Like all my cars, I need one that can hug the corners. This one has all the versatility of a small sedan, and still rips into the twisties. Best design years were 2004-2006. New style is too heavy; Older styles didn't have the best suspension, brakes or options packages. These years also have Awesome visibility... a must when racing random strangers on a busy highway.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 6 speed manual, good torque, awesome suspension

    Cons: brakes suck.  And if you really want RWD, this car ain't got it.
