As some of you know, I have a brand new 05 Sentra SE. Now, its time that I want to nitpick on the little things.

#1: I do NOT like the shift boot. Its very floppy and could be shortened at the top a little bit. I would give an example but I dont have a digital camera.

#2: The blinker lights are a bit small. I mean, they are only like 1 1/2 inch light.

#3: The fog lights should be made where you can choose to have them on or not, I mean with the headlights completely off.

#4: I dont like the location of the subwoofer. I would like it to be off to the side or something. There again...very minor detail...i dont really care.

#5: I do not have a lock on my glove box.

#6: I hit my arm against the console when I change gears, but my arm is just too long I guess. Not Nissans fault.

#7: It would be nice to have leather offered in SE Sentras. I really dont care...it would be nice though.

#8: The speedo is about 5 mph off.

#9: A place to put your cell phone that would be of easy reach would be nice.

#10: My last nitpick is...the range on the keyless entry is very poor. I would be more than 100 feet away and I cant open my trunk or make it "panic." I really dont care...its just a nitpick.

If anybody has any nitpicks about there Sentra. Please tell me. Im not saying I dont like the car. I love it...its just some of us have our nitpicks.

amen dude....nissan needs to get with the program and upgrade stuff on there lower "status" cars

why? It'd simply make the car cost more. As it is, the damn thing doesn't hold resale well enough to even waste the money on things like leather seats.

Definitly true. If they did all that, the car wouldnt cost so cheap.

Well...its an Special Edition. It would be different for baseline models. I dont like leather that much, but it would be nice to offer it in the Special Edition. Or at least a really nice fabric.

You say you love your car, yet here you are, flaunting a top 10 no less.

Nissan realy makes crapy interior, paint is thin as well, when I bought my Spec V I had to take it the next day to the dealer because paint was pealing off of the spoiler, next time I'm gonna buy a car I going through it with a magnifying glass. My Spec V is my second Nissan, previously I owned 200SX base model, I bought it brand new and I think it was made better than the Spec V. Only good thing about the car is the engine (except for the transmission) I do like the torque.

NOs 1,4,7,9,10 (and probably 8 can be fixed) are things you change and/or easily modify.

Yea I am going to try and fix all my nitpicks. My 89 Sentra had a bad paint problem. It started to come off after about 5 years. But it did have a very strong interior. Only heavy wear there is, is on the driver seat where there is a big wore out spot on there (the foam is showing). It lasted 250k miles so I guess thats pretty good.

dang, 250k that is good, you must have taken care of it, doin the oilies, and stuff.
i think the new 05 grills look whack, they should have left it alone.
big break kit is nice, but you gotta get the spec v with the seats man, i bought my 02 spec v from an old lady with 15k back in jan 03 for $16k. it just didnt come with the sun roof which would have been really nice.

Yup. Everything on it is SE-R except the headlights, some of the guage cluster, and the motor. Its way nicer than the other base model sentras AND COSTS ABOUT THE SAME!

Do I need to get a camera and take a pic of the Special Edition emblem for ya? I am living in South Carolina and I have a bonifeid 2005 Nissan Sentra Special Edition. Why dont you check out the Nissan website and see for yourself? I dont have an SE-R because I cant afford it nor the insurance.

it's a 1.8s SE, it's nothing fancy...just a stupid badge. I think the SE guy needs to get the efff over it, it's just a freakin sentra. Oh, and that rockford package sucks. It's not even rockford fosgate either, lmao.

Biscuit.

it's a 1.8s SE. it's not a Sentra SE. You need to get that part straight.

the RF system is the same if it's in the 1.8s SE. I wouldn't really call it an RF system as much as a Clarion system, lol
