2005 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec VReview

Spec V — I bought this car because my older 94 Sentra blew up due to nitrous backfire. The car so far has been great. The car has loads of low-end torque which is good for burnouts and holeshots most of the time.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Didn't pay over 20 for this brand new

Cons: Recently has sucked up H2O and the idle is off

Great Car. Very Safe. — Acceleration, braking, and handling all good. Has great maneuverability. The only repairs it ever needed were from hail damage and being rear ended. No interior or exterior problems. Appearance similar to SpecV. Gas milage varies. Usually get 300 miles out of 11 gallon tank. Maintenance...just oil changes so far. And the check-ups with the manufacturer. This car is very fun to drive. Great for racing. Got alot of torque for a little car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great speed.

Cons: Hard to tell if your going fast.

Check Engine Light - No Power In Car — do not like having mechanical problems. driving along highway today 65 mph all of a sudden power from gas down to maximum l0 mph - maybe l5 mph -very dangerous on a very speedy highway where some are driving 80 mph. check engine light came on. managed to drive a mile onto side road, let it sit. it started up ok. what is going on. cant have this happening over and over. its much too dangerous

Pros: 57,000 miles and massive trouble - not too positive

Cons: should not have trouble at 57,000 miles

I Love Almost Everything About My Spec.v — My Spec. V is my baby...I only wish I could afford to give it the care it deserves and needs. I love the 6 speed transmission, sometimes I swear the car just wants to go fast and doesn't give me a choice. The power steering has gone out and I need to get that fixed. Occasionally the steering wheel jerks when I am coming to a stop or if I accelerate during a turn. I'm not sure if this is torque steer or because of the power steering or possibly the alignment. Also, it doesn't look as sporty as it should.

Pros: Acceleration, 6spd, good mileage, fun to drive

Cons: Could have a more aggressive, sporty look. Powersteering went out and the steering wheel occasionally jerks.

Eh. — Peformance for the dollar. Gas milleage is 34/gal. The very best a Sentra can be... yeah, eaxactly,"So what?" But it's small, easy to park... has a good a/c... the front grill is cool... why does it havea rear spoiler???... the manual transmission clicks into 3rd gear... lots of drink holders... cool, sunglasses compartment by the rearview mirror...

Pros: power:weight ratio, wide tires, trunk space

Cons: interior is not as quality as it could have been made.

The Sentra — Well this car is a great car it has great performance, it handles very well, you can make alot of tight turns without a problem, the accelaration is very decent could be better though, the interior is black which makes it nice except on very hot days cause the inside of my car turns into an oven, but thats a price im willing to live with, other than that what i like about this car is that it is very realiable.

Pros: well it saves alot of gas, it gets like 30.5 miles to the gallon in the city if you know how to drive it right, its comfy, handles very well , and i like the stereo system.

Cons: Well there isnt much that sucks about the car i dont know what to say

Se-r Spec V — Great car to drive everyday, not the fastest car on the road, but for a sentra it can scoot. You'll be able to surprise quite a few folks.

Pros: Flys under the radar, six speed, good gas mileage, handles awesome

Cons: Not many, could be a little quicker but now it's stock so i'll be changing that.
