I was just wondering about the mechanical relationship between these two cars.

Seems like a lot of SpecVs are having problems with engines and trannys, etc. I understand that people with Specs will tend to drive them harder than the regular commuter Sentras.

Do these cars have the same tranny? Is the standard GXE mechanicaly more reliable than the spec since it doesnt have any of the performance attire?

Why would it have the same transmission.. does it seem that a 5 speed and a 6 speed are the same thing? Cmon man, you're smarter than that.

Actually it is a good question. I am not very familiar with Sentras. Thats the reason I am on this forum. I am not the type of guy to pimp out my car with all the aftermarket crap that ends up being worth more than the car. I used to own a Jeep and I've frequented those forums and have been all through the same type of things over there. The Sentra is an entirely new beast to me. With rising fuel prices, I was looking for a reliable daily driver that I could could drive for a while. If I knew the damn answer I wouldnt have asked the question. I know a lot of buddies who have Sentras and they all are mechanically in good shape. However, they are all b14s or older. The SpecV is a new car, and from what I see here has alot of mechanical problems. I am aware of the displacement differences and tranny differences between the Spec and the GXE. The source of my question was to see if these Spec problems are something I could expect or if I would get the same reliability from by b15 as my buddies have gotten from thier older Sentras. That is all.
