its badass lookin. But there makin it an American family car

Discussion in '2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R V Spec' started by Str8Pipe, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. This the car you buy for a "fun little family sport-sedan car" kinda like the miat (except for the family and sedan part). Its not very fast, but it is actually OK for a 4 cylinder. Would you dissagree?<!-- Signature -->

    nissan should of made the se-r a 2-door like the old se-r's

    i wouldn't doubt a 2 door cuz well nissan is planing for the future and since infinity is getting the skyline nissan needs a sports car besides the z for the new luxury sports coupe boom<!-- Signature -->

    I don't think its really an American family car, it was penned at Nissan facilities at La Jolla, Cali, though...

    Nissan is repositionings itself as a sport and sporty automaker, I mean, its cars get more horses and deffinitely best looks that the rest of its jap counterparts. I think the Sentra is no longer the entry level cheap commuter car, but rather a mini BMW 3-series<!-- Signature -->

    I've got to agree with ivanhoe. The cars aren't THAT expensive. You can get a decked-out Civic with everything but plastic leather for 17K. A 2001 Sentra SE with every option costs 16K. It'd kill the Civic in every category, too... save interior dimensions. My old SE was a blast to drive. My dad has a 1999 Acura 3.2 TL and I honestly liked my old Sentra more than it. I've raced around with a lot of cars and I've always been pleasantly suprised at how well my Sentra could hold its own versus some pretty expensive rides.

    there's no family car about it.... i just got one last week and it handles great.no one in their right mind would expect a family to be comfortable in it. i agree that the entry level sentra is a family commuter but the spec v is literally a 4-door sports car.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: its badass lookin. But there makin it an American family car

    yeah
    I own a '93 Sentra, and my next5 car is deffinitely either a '02 Spec V or a Focus SVT, I love both cars. <!-- Signature -->

    I just sold my 1991 Ford Taurus SHO and I am now leasing a 2002 Spec V. And all I have to say is WOW! Its such a hot looking car its not even funny. It gets up and goes really good, I really like the 6 speed manual for it so it makes it a lot of fun to drive and I have mine fully loaded and the total price for the car was a little over 19k and then I talked him down a little bit so the final price I got for it was $18765.34 I love the interior in it with the Nissan Skyline seats and the 18" rims with Z-rated low profile tires, the 9 speaker Rockford Fosgate stereo system that comes with an 8" sub is nice ass hell and it hits pretty good. But this is definatly a car to get if your looking to spend 20k or less you can't go wrong.

    Nissan is making its stake on the world by building kickass cars. THe new maxima SE with the 6 speed standard transmission packs a punch that bmws that cost 50% more that are smaller dont even touch. And the Altima? with the standard transmission that thing also rips. Hwo many many $30 000 (canadian funds) mid-size family cars can run a quarter mile in 14.6 seconds and 0-60 in 6.4? Good for nissan but i wish theyd bring the old model skyline to north america...that car kicks ass

    well, my friend owns one and i got to drive it for a whole day.
    i have to say, its not a family car.this car handles great, accelerates pretty good as well.
    there's only 2 in the city.
    very good car.<!-- Signature -->

    Looks a hell of alot better than the civic in my opinion too. I went to the Nissan dealership and right when you walk in, there is a fully loaded SE-R thats in the showrooms facing you. When i walked in and took a glimpse of it, for a second, I thought it was the GTR!! It was the wierdest thing, and from then on, I've been in love with this car. Slight resemblense no?
