Sirbox 2 of 12: 1993 Nissan Sentra SE-R

I can’t believe we are down to the penultimate entry in our celebration of terrible economy cars from 1992. It all started from this vintage Car and Driver article from July 1992 came across my desk the other day. The 12 compact economy cars in the comparison article were sub $10k crapboxes that were ranked from best to worst by a group of college kids. Today’s next feature is number 2, which should have been a base model penalty box Nissan Sentra with a 110 horsepower 1.6 liter 16-valve (the only DOHC engine in the group of 12), but we found a 2.0 liter SR20DE 140 horsepower equipped SE-R model. Yeah. That’ll show them. I don’t think those college kids would pick the Civic over this beast. Find this 1993 Nissan Sentra SE-R offered for $6,950 in Cumming, GA via
