1993 Nissan Sentra XE 2dr Coupe


Review

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


Favorite Features

fwd, 5 speed, abs, excellent trunk space, easy to work on if need which is unlikely...........


Suggested Improvements

fix the body so it doesnt rust as fast as it was built

Review

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!

Review

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 SENTRA...(still do)


Favorite Features

Pretty good pick up for a lightweight and a "cheaper" car...everything was great except the weak body...


Suggested Improvements

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...

Review

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


Favorite Features

Pretty comfortable inside. Surpring amount of back seat room and trunk space. Gas milage was ok, too. Simple reliability was the best. It RAN.


Suggested Improvements

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 antenna.

Review

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.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders are in a terrible spot.
