1992 Nissan Sentra Sedan XE 4dr Sedan

Review

Purchased my Sentra in 2006 and have owned it ever since. She's always been good to me and I've made sure to keep up with the maintenance. The only major work I've had to do is the CV axles and the exhaust...which were a bit pricey but other than that it's been good and the parts are cheap and the car is easy to work on. I live in the Austin area so inspection and emissions tests are required. My car's always passed wonderfully, so there's never been any expensive emissions problems like that.

Boring to look at but can't kill it!

My 1992 nissan sentra has been nothing but reliable for my family. No major repairs except a gas tank replacement @ 397000 kms. The usual repairs for wear and tear only. Interior has held up awesome with little to no wear to the seats. Still getting great gas mileage and no oil burning. This car deserves respect for being so simple in its design and so amazingly well built. I can't understand why they still can't produce all cars to be this well. So anyone looking for a great second or student car, this is it hands down! Hope to get million km out of her yet. My little red rocket just goes and goes.

Reliable car!

Review

I bought this car from my girlfriend a few years ago because I needed a fuel-efficient car for commuting to and from work (Jeep was way too thirsty for gas!). The car has a total of 235,000 miles. The car is a little rusty with a big dent on the right front panel passenger side. The car is very reliable. The car is great on gas too. There are some disadvantages to the car. It shifts hard from 1st gear to 2nd gear, I have replaced the governor gear three times, and it leaks oil (a lot of it).

Had to get another

Review

Got the car with 56K miles on it. When it had 135K, I bought the wife a brand new car, but she insisted on driving this one for another 2 years! Peppy, very manueverable, easy on gas and maintenance. Finally sold it at 210K miles to a coworker who loves the car. He has 246K on it now! It's the Timex of cars!

I love my Nissan Sentra

Review

This car is incredibly reliable. My wife bought it in 1999 with 72,000 miles. Now, in 2006, it has 190,000 miles and still runs like a charm. The gas mileage is incredible, and although it's not exactly sporty, the engine is strong enough to do what you need. Of course, the rear seating is small, but it's fine for car seats.

Best car ever owned

Review

My 1992 Nissan Sentra, bought used with 96,000 miles on it, has been the best car I have ever owned. It currently has over 225,000 miles on it. I have replaced the fuel pump twice and the alternator once. The CV joint on one side was replaced at 185,000 miles and I am going to replace the other side within the month. The A/C blows cold and everything except the cassette player works as new. It is responsive and holds the road well. It will travel at 90 MPH all day long. It does occasionally require a quart of oil between changes, which are done every 5,000 miles.

Still Loved 12 Years Later

1992 Nissan Sentra Sedan GXE 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought the car at about 2 years old, and was slightly nervous about a car with 47K miles, even if they were from an all-highway commute. Now almost 100,000 miles later the engine still runs silky smooth. I might expect this if I had had to do major repairs along the way, but I haven't. Never needed anything but oil changes, 30,000m scheduled tune-up, and new tires. Interior dash and controls still look and feel new at 12 years old (I did maintain with Armor All).

All around nice car to own

Review

This car has been very dependable. A little lacking on the miles-to-the gal., but it is an uncommonly quick 4 cyl. with a respectable gas consumption. I like go when the light turns green, not wait to reach the speed limit at the next stop light, like many 4 cyl. of the past.

What a Car!!!

Review

This has been a great car for the family and now for myself as a commuter car. I'm not the best at maintaining my vehicles but this one os very forgiving. After 182,000 miles it still doesn't use any oil to speak of. I get between 35 and 40 mpg and that is with my last tune-up being beyond my rememberance. Other than replacing normal wear out items I have only had to replace the front crankshaft seal and the oil pressure sending unit. I've replaced front brakes about every two years but the rear brakes were replaced for the first time at 170,000 miles. Exhaust system is still original.
