1991-1994 Nissan Sentra SE-R

Nissan Sentra SE-R

Pros :
- Great, reliable engine.
- Interior room of four-door sedan.

Cons :
- A/C problems expensive to repair.
- Well-maintained used models may be hard to find.

The Sentra SE-R has had a cult following since its introduction in 1991. It was a quick car in its time, and is still popular today as a base for building a competent road race car on a low budget.

This two-door coupe rides on the same B13 platform as its economy four-door sedan siblings, but in its engine bay beats a 140 hp naturally-aspirated powerhouse enough to propel the car to 60 under 7 seconds if driven aggressively. If you are into modifying cars, power can easily be boosted using various bolt-on performance parts widely available. Four-wheel disc brakes are standard, although ABS is not offered. The car can rev right up to a limited 7500 rpm and post sub-16 second quarter-mile times similar to that of the new, more powerful 2002 Sentra SE-R Spec V. In other words, it is the perfect "sleeper", capable of drag-strip duty and haul four of your friends at the same time. The boxy styling received a mild makeover in '93, namely new tail-lights, along with driver-side airbag.

The car is very reliable, but reported problems include fuel pump failure and trouble with the air-conditioning. Repairing the A/C can be expensive. Also, the A/C uses old R-12 refrigerant, which would be costly to replace since all manufacturers have switched to R-134A now.
