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
It does occasionally require a quart of
oil between changes, which are done
every 5,000 miles.
Comfort, acceleration, reliability and
layout of controls.
I bought this car for its value, but
it has been extreamly dependable even
with its 180,000 miles. Any time I
have had a repair or maintenance
mechanics can't belive I still have
orginal parts. I will most definitaly
stick with the sentra even when buying
a new care in the next year.
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).
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.
I like the soild feeling of the car. A
1991 Escourt I owned scared me when I
was driving. The roof of the Escourt
would cave-in during car washes! Not
this car, it passed that test over and
The only two suggests I have for
improving this car:
1. is the seating. It needs more
adjustablity for the driver.
2. The back seat to fold down, for a
speaker box to point into the cabin
from the trunk.
