This is the second Sentra that has
given me over 175000 miles with very
few problems. Early on, within the
first 30000 miles, I had to replace
5th gear on the manual transmission
and fix a problem with the idle.
Since then, just routine maintenance.
The gas mileage is still very good,
but no where near the 45-55 mpg I used
to be able to get out of it. Great in
the snow too. It has no problem with
New York and Vermont winters, even
with 6 - 8 inches of snow on the
road. Definitely bare bones, not even
a radio when I got mine, but what do
you want for under $8000 new.
Reliability, fuel economy,
durability. It may not be the sexiest
car on the road, but it will get you
where you need to go reliably,
quickly, and cheaply.
