Just 'cause it's a Nissan---

1990 Nissan Sentra XE 2dr Hatchback
Don't be fooled by the "no maintenance" theology of Nissan cars. I purchased this one from a dealership. The previous owner (traded it in for a Ford) had used it to commutte several miles each day-- and I believe never bothered to do hardly any maintenance.
The car was low-priced and worked great-- until one day it all came falling apart at about 130,000 miles-- much less than what I would expect for a Nissan.
5-speed, VERY good fuel economy, no-frills, get-me-to-the-bus-stop car.
The dashboard lights went out (all of them). It was easy but adventerous to replace them all. Guess you would expect from a ten-year-old car?
