The compact segment is fiercely contended, with strong competitors coming from every major carmaker. With increasing quality deriving from each geographical location, expectations are rising, and customers are no longer willing to settle for a crappy econobox.
For its newest generation, the 2013 Nissan Sentra is skipping the facelift and getting the full on Michael Jackson. The all new car has a laundry list of new features, and they stretch from the nose to the tail. It's lighter. It's economier. It's upscalier. It's LEDier. It also looks like the lovechild of the new…
Today at the Beijing Motor Show, Nissan unveiled the Sylphy. But don't be fooled by the name; this is the US-bound 2013 Nissan Sentra in disguise.
The term Q-ship originated in WWI when merchant vessels carried hidden armament to attack and sink enemy subs. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Sentra also looks sedate, but hides a turbo 2.5-liter. Would you sink thirteen large for it?
Even after an SE-R Sentra (OK, fine, an SE-R 200SX) won a LeMons race last year, conventional wisdom held that Nissans can't really compete in the series. Forget conventional wisdom, because the Rogue Squadron SE-R just beat 107 cars!
When your rings go bad and crankcase pressure starts a-buildin' up, you'll get oil a-gushin' out of any escape it can find: dipstick tube, filler cap, wherever. Cars dumping oil on a race track get in trouble. What to do?
Called "Drift," Nissan Canada's latest commercial for the Sentra SE-R features nothing but 1/10 scale RC cars. The epic ad was even filmed using other RC cars and an RC helicopter. Sounds more fun than driving a Nissan Sentra SE-R.
We see this all the time during the BS Inspection: team can't get their shit together to finish their LeMons racer in time, so they bring their "real" race car and ask to be allowed to drive it.
If that's not the best (worst?) opening line for a forum thread, then we don't know what is. Can you guess what's next? Yep, incompetent attempts to destroy said motor using rocks and antifreeze.
The Sentra SE-R is one of the few cars in this analysis that had its results skewed in a big way by BS Penalty laps. That's due to the huge rash of SE-R cheating we've seen in the last year or so. Still, Sentras have been pretty good at busting suspension parts and nuking engines.
The 2010 Nissan Sentra is in dealerships today showing off slight cosmetic changes, an available color navtainment system, and best of all, price drops on every trim level of up to $1100.
For the first time ever, Detroit iron dominated a 24 Hours Of LeMons event, with American-built machinery taking four of the top five positions (if you consider a California-built Corolla to be American-built, that is).
We've started to see quite a few 300ZXs at LeMons races, in addition to the usual crop of 280Zs and 280ZXs. For reasons we don't understand, the Zs haven't been so reliable at LeMons races; at some point, though, one of them is bound to dominate a race. We're also hearing rumors of a possible 510 at a future West…
First, we had our Top 20 Vintage Toyota ads. Now it's Nissan's turn. Here's our favorite ads from the 70s through the 90s, from North America and Japan.
Why you should buy the 2008 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V:
You think hatchbacks are for Euro sissies, the Civic SI is too refined and the Caliber SRT-4 is too domestic. You need to be able to comfortably move four adults yet somehow it doesn't bother you that you're driving a car whose interior looks as though it was…
Exterior Design: **
If someone ran over your mother with a 2008 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V right in front of you, you'd be unable to explain to the police what it was. It's a battle to the death between blandness (from the front it looks like a smaller and blander Altima) and gimmickry (the Sebring called, even they…
