seems to me that every one talks more about how there car is not performing like i should (including the recall threads). I just got my 2002 Spec v and this is all starting to scare me!..

the 2002 wasn't a good year for the Spec. normal first year issues. by the 04 model year all the issues were worked out.

some 02s have no problems, but the majority did.

yeah. . . i think it would have been smart for you to look up on that 2002 spec V before you bought it. . . cuz that would suck if you didn't know about those problems

and also. . . even if most of the posts are about problems, it's good to hear about them and understand certain things. . . it's usually stuff you don't know, and those are usually problems

have a nice day

:banhump:

If you havent had any problems yet and your recalls are done, you are probably in the safe. The main problems you will see if they exist are:
-car eating oil
-transmission shifting problems
-a pinging sound that is not the heat sheilds contracting
-overactive knock sensors retarding your timing (this more than likely will not hurt your car)
-some have leaking trunks
i think you are probably allright if you dont have any of those and a few other miscellaneous smaller problems.

The Only problem that the car exbitz is the transmission shifting rough from 2nd to 3rd but i think some RedLine will work.

yeah. . . i think we (owners of sentras) all wish there was no such thing as a tranny problem on the damn car. . . cuz it's a nice little car with a fat powerplant!

In most technical sections of this forum, people only post about the problems that they are having.

When everything is working fine, they are driving, not typing ;)

I hear ya guys!

Yeah I know what you all mean about the 2nd to 3rd thing and it only happens when you try to shift real fast. Its crap, but nothing huge. I used to have a 2003 SE-R Spec V. Other then the recall for the exhaust hangers and what not I had absolutly no problems with it at all. When I traded it it had an AEM Short Ram Intake and a Borla axle back exhaust. Man did it sound sweet!! Had a very deep powerful sound. Although I cant wait until I start gettin my maxi modded, oh man. :thumbup:
