Hey Nissan, have you no surplus Juke engines?

Looks like a Corolla from the back :(

The SE-R and Spec-V were great enthusiast cars that Nissan has walked away from. I get the need for mainstream profit centers, but how hard is it to drop a Juke engine into something and add some suspension? Jeez.

We tested a Sentra SL last week and were disappointed...no spirit left in this version of the Sentra. Nissan seems to go in cycles of sporty and boring. They are in their boring phase again...

I had one of these and the new Focus back to back as recent rentals. I don't think I have ever driven two cars in the same segment at the same price point that were so, um, different. The Focus was fabulous, even if I didn't like kookie over wrought dash/center console, and too busy auto clicking up and down all willy nilly in search of something apparently unobtainable. The Sentra simply sucked. bleh.

We all know Nissans to be reliable. The 2013 Sentra adds to that fact its great fuel economy and its being within the reach of most people’s budgets. Its new styling may look familiar, as you can certainly see the family resemblance between it and its classier sister, Altima. Nissan tried to step it up for the 2013 launch.

I wish Nissan would get its mojo back. What happened to the Spec V spirit? Why waste the Nismo thing on the ridiculous Juke? I wouldn't mind seeing a new Nismo turbo 6 speed Sentra like I'm driving now.

Nissan has missed the boat by a mile. It's sad because I think they have the ability to make a great enthusiasts car. But the won't for whatever reason.

When Hyundai has sportier cars than you, it's time to wake up.
