this is the most amazing car ever. its a front wheel drive car that will go everywhere you want it to go and had tons of power (enough to burn rubber at any time)...... it had almost 826,XXX miles (most highway)and ran like a top only routine maintenence and an alternator since i got it with 342,XXX in 05. i put on mostly highway miles and i gave it heck the entire time i had it running almost 80 in 3rd on the interstate and she always kept going!!! around christmas this year i totaled it and i already bought another and am lovin it. the only thing that could be better is the fact that with many of these sentras, the body falls apart around them
fwd, 5 speed, abs, excellent trunk space, easy to work on if need which is unlikely...........
fix the body so it doesnt rust as fast as it was built
My family bought the car brand new. 16 Years later, car has 204,000 Miles and counting! Only replaced the clutch, radiator, maybe 2 alternators, and the injectors. This car is BULLETPROOF!! Still gets 35 MPG+ ! I love it, sure it needs a little paint, and the interior isn't great after 16 years of driving all over the state, but at 204,000 miles it runs great! Passes emissions every time with no problem. Timing Chain means no worries of BELT braking! A+++ To nissan!
This car took me through it all, nice
summer days and bitter NJ winters.
Sadly with 108,000 miles or so, this
little pup cracked its whole front.
The blame can only be placed on poor
drivers in NJ, the only thing I was
unhappy about is that my car looked
like it had hit something going 65mph
and the other cars involved looked
like the actually event had happened,
a gradual 10mph fenderbender...It had
been through 4 crashes before that and
help up pretty well, the only thing
ever to go wrong was body work, the
engine has never given up. I LOVED MY
Pretty good pick up for a lightweight
and a "cheaper" car...everything was
great except the weak body...
Cupholders were terribly placed,
visors dont want to unlatch ever lots
of outside noise came in, better
speakers...and finally, more of
them...I want to find another sentra
soon, 5spd. of course!...Heat could
have kicked in sooner...
I, too, loved this little guy. Bought it used at @ 26K mi. Took many trips
from NC/Va., back home to Pa., for holidays and family visits. Had more
trouble with the fuel pump (twice repaired) than anything, but it cranked each
and every time I needed it. My AM radio never worked, but the cassette
sounded pretty good. I'm at 148K and STILL haven't changed the clutch!
Burgundy color and simple styling made it plain, but when it was clean and
swept, which wasn't often, it looked pretty good
Pretty comfortable inside. Surpring amount of back seat room and trunk
space. Gas milage was ok, too. Simple reliability was the best. It RAN.
Had leakage problems in the trunk and under the front passenger. I agree
the cup holder was ill placed--cups would hit the defroster or flashers. Never
could figure out the radio problem, but a typhoon couldn't know over that
I bought this car used with
approximately 59,000 miles on it back
in 1998. I have 103,000 miles on it now
and I still love it. I needed to
replace the battery and the distributor
cap at 75,000 miles, (no big deal). At
98,000 miles I replaced the alternator
and at 102,000 miles replaced the
starter. These items are all due to
wear and tear which are needed to be
replaced at some point in the vehicles
life cycle. All in all I have never had
to worry about starting up my car and
driving. I hope this vehicle can
continue to be as reliable as it's been
because even though I own two more
vehicles, I plan on keeping this one
for a few more years.
