  • How many of you are looking up B13s on Graigslist right now?

    • Damn you caught me🙄 tell nolan not to laugh at me

    • Hard to find. Even the sentras I found wasn't the se-r and those sentras I found were hard to find

    • In Mexico it is called 2000 GSR and it only went on sale from '93 to '96, there's a SR20 community all over the world, and ofcourse we enjoy to put to the test all the engines variants available like the SR20-DE , DET, VE, VET on our little Tsuru's.

    • Im looking for my first car and I found a b15 se-r spec v and im trying to convince my parents to let me get it😂😂😂

    • Donut Media Please do the Nissan Maxima! It is noted as the 4DSC (4-Door Sports Car) meant to compete with the other 4 door sports cars

  • fun fact: the b16 spec v didn't come factory with a limited slip differential like the b15, you had to get it with a performance package

  • Heyyyyy you neglected the 2000 se with the sr20de in it! I had one of those in manual with the performance package (suspension upgrades). It even had the VLSD. I miss the poop out of that car.

  • I just have a basic ass 2016 Sentra SV but she’s a zippy little thing I adore her 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • I got a manual Sentra SR turbo and I like it a lot lol

  • I have a Nissan Sentra a 2001 model my girl has a 2008 model I got a question thou I needa get my CV axles changed they keep asking me if I have a slip disc differential in it idk if I do my car has a dohv twin can engine 16 valve like the one u showed and my car is from over seas is there anyway I can figure this out tried running my Vin doesn't say

  • 5:38...did...did he say you get LSD standard with this particular vehicle? What a trippy thing to offer 😉 lol

  • Had a 03 ser spec v loved that car till it killed itself. On a steap driveway the first gear popped out, while parked and the ebrake cable failed. It shot down the into a tree ;(

  • 2:41 I didnt know the corolla was a german sedan

  • My first car was a 94 se-r. Didn't know what I had when I had it. Car was a blast.

  • " N I S S U N "

  • I was thinking about that being my fist car but I ended up buying a 2015 Scion tc Release series 9.0. You guys should do a video about it!

  • It bothers me how he said Nissan

  • Bruh! I own one... but it's the basic SE-R 04' still running strong just the seats are wearing out and paint job is fading out do to it being exposed in the sun for so long..

  • My 1991 SE-R is nearly bone stock at 145,000 miles. The tachometer is steadily hovering at 2500-3000 at idle though. Anybody have any ideas what’s up with it? Doesn’t sound like the engine’s stressing at all. It has new plugs, wires, fuel pump and filter, maf reground... what am I missing?

    • Javier Herrera I thought it was this initially but it’s not. I forgot to mention, idle fixes itself after about 20-30 mins of driving. Air, temp or fuel related maybe?

    • (Throttle cable)

    • The accel cable is tight. I had one of those cars and that is the matter.

  • Y U No mention sentra b12 coupe?!!

  • That Tsuru absorves a crash impact like a pizza box, or even worse. xD

  • Great video! A couple things to mention is the sentra SE-R 2 door became the 200SX SE-R. I bought a brand new one in 1995. Loved it. Also of note the original Spec V got a 6 speed manual from the Maxima.

  • Please do a 2015 VW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

  • I drive a b17 sv and I realize when driving it that Nissan really dropped the ball on Sentras

  • Lollllll

  • I bought a Sentra 2 weeks after this video was posted. I got a B14. Great car

    • @Bakaroons dang. Good thing I have a manual. But thanks for the heads up 👍🏻

    • @Brandon Ortonpay close attention to the transmission, any amounts of slippage and it will give out. I lost reverse gear on my auto 96 gxe

    • @Bakaroons Not the SE-R just a regular Sentra

    • SE or SER ?

  • Got an 03 ser,for 1500 $$ ,good gas saver,stick shift 6 speed,yellow,doing aftermarket rotors,and calipers,new tires,keeping it stock, and will upgrade exhaust manifold,and cold air intake as well as upgraded injectors, it’s not refined like my amg, I like driving this car, it is zippy,and can corner well I think the ser is a sleeper tuner.

  • I've got an 03 SE-R automatic and I can only say that it effin sucks! Damn thing is a gas guzzler. No cruise speed whatsoever. Interior plastics have begun to crack due to sun/time. Lots of oil consumption now and the check engine is always on due to some new problem that pops up.

  • I've had a 94 se-r for 13 years and have owned other cars along side it and it's still my favorite.

  • I love these

  • I have a B16, maybe not the most interesting generation, but a great city car, cheap to keep, fairly big, and powerful enough

  • I had a boosted 1.8 91 sentra.. really miss that car.. was very fun to smash on hondas

  • You should do a video on the 92 mazda mx6 gt its a fun lil turbo car shares the same motor with the turbo ford Probe. I had one miss it a lot was one of the best cars out like 60 iv had

  • Had a b13 base and has tons of fun in it. Cant imagine how sick the se r is!

  • I have one. Currently looking for a set of dual fog lamps for it.

  • My girlfriend has a 09 sentra and, as a nissan geek, i talk about a lot of nissan while we drive it, the skyline, the z, the xterra, and just one day before i watched this video i told her abour the sentra SE froms the 2000`s. I don`t know if she gets bored about it, but she says she loves her sentra

  • Can you do the Altima next

  • I don'r forget the Sentra/Sylphy

  • My ex had one of these and Jesus it was awesome never had someone scare me in a car and beat my Camaro in something so in suspecting

  • Why you didn't talk about b12 tho I own one personally still drives strong and sure it not powerful but fun and unique in it boxy shape

    • @Mike CorLeoné that is nice tho good thing the b12 does share parts with it even the sway bars. Am on the plan buying another one to make a build might make videos on it plus I want to put a rew 13b rotary engine since it hasn't been done so it an original build. If I do make videos on it I be sure to reply again with a link you can get a nostalgic view of the car. My is silver as well 5 speed 😆 only being little as 30 years still runs good

    • BlackBulletKill i miss my first sentra.. 87 sentra 5 speed red with grey cloth interior 😬 I’m looking for a pulsar now

  • I have a Sentra. I thank you guys 🙏🏼♥️

  • Look at South Africa's Nissan Sentra STI 200, one of the most admired cars to date, rocking an SR20DE with VVL.

    • dont forget our RXI rivals 😂

  • So is a 1990 not as good then??

  • please do nissan pathfinder

  • For sale !! 2004 SE R. 146 k. You can’t afford mine. Lol.

  • Mexico imported the B13 till 2017!? It might not be too hard to get one then.

  • I have a 2009 SE-R Spec V. Best car I have ever had.

  • Your pronounciation of "Nissan" is killing me. 🤐😬🤐

  • i have a b15 but it is only 1.8 wish i could get a ser engine on it but im in the country of El Salvador some day i might be able to buy one love the video

  • My dad still has his 03 se r

  • I had a 94 SE-R. got it with 2 miles on the odometer, sold it 7 years later with 250,000 miles. It was red. It was awesome. How awesome? Well since then I've owned a Skyline GT-R, an Audi RS6, a twin-turbo Mercedes...and I still miss my Sentra. I even lived in it for a week once.

  • no wonder i fell in love when i rent a 2019 nissan sentra

  • Nissan SE-R spec v at 160k miles for $2k. Worth?

    • @fruity G 2002. Got the guy down to $1700. Going to pick it up this Monday.

    • Depends on the year

  • Hey bros... Do Abarth!!!!!

  • had an SE-R Spec V. Loved it but had a lot of trouble in the beginning. The little thing you lift to shift into reverse kept coming off, rear window broke for no reason (barely brought it down), the compartment on the dashboard cracked because its plastic, the AC went out and cylinders kept breaking. Despite this, I loved the car.

    • My 03 se r rear window broke tok

  • 94 was the last of the best sentra. Will never get one like it again. ☹☹😭😭

  • love the tsuru, drivied one in mrcivo for more than 15 yrs

  • I had an ‘03 spec V... I miss that thing

  • O shit I gorgot

  • We don’t have a video on Nissan Altima?

  • How you gonna talk about performance Sentras and not mention Disco Potato?

  • I started selling Nissan's back in 99 and I remember selling the spec V and the 350Z when it first arrived.....the 2000 Maxima SE Manual was pretty nice as well.

  • I miss my Sentra B13 😭

  • Any reviewer that wastes time trying to be a personality, instead a personality being a reviewer, SUCKS. just like this one.
