... as my '92 Sentra E. Currently have over 247,000k and still peppy due to fuel injected 1.6 engine. Getting 28+ mpg when taking it easy, about 24 mpg when using A/C, still frosty. Really impressed with this car's performance in its 'emeritus' years. Worth buying at any age, if treated well is the epitome of reliability.
Smooth suspension, quiet interior for base model.
Door mounted shoulder strap a real minus - get slammed in door when aged belts don't retract completely. Cup holders insufficient, poorly placed.
I bought this car new in '92 & sold it
after a very pleasing
240,000 miles. I definitley got my
money worth. I have never had any
major repairs. Nissan's mufflers
lasted 120,000 miles and the rear
breaks NEVER needed to be changed! The
motor runs very smooth and I never had
any problems starting no matter what
the weather had to offer, even -20 F
the car never hesitated to start. The
only repairs needed to the car were to
parts that will eventually wear out
after years of use, front brakes,
shocks/struts, tires etc. The only
minor problems I've had was the cruise
control died several years ago and a
small annoying water leak.
