We have owned our 1995 Nissan Sentra Xe for 8 years now and it has served us well. It is still running today and driven daily. The battery, alternator and starter go out every 2 years, but the engine is still running very strong with 159000 miles on it now. We bought it with 30000 miles on it and have only had a few mechanical problems. Great car and very inexpensive! The cup holders are pretty small and annoying though. That's really my only complaint. When using larger cups it changes the radio station every time we hit a bump. Surprisingly peppy engine for it to be a four cylinder, unless the air conditioner is on. I would buy it all over again if I had the option. Great car.
Gas Mileage, Interior Space, Trunk Space, Reliability
Move the cup holders into the center console and away from the radio!
This is a nice, small car, that would
be great for a first car. Not a whole
lot of pep, especially with the A/C
on, and could use more features. Has
been reliable, except for starter and
brakes, and now reads 101,000.
Its small size makes it easily
maneuvered and can make quick sharp
turns. Gets great gas mileage with
its 1.6L 4 cylinder engine. Overall a
good, cheap, reliable car.
Increased acceleration and better
brakes. Also increased leg room in the
front and rear would be nice
