My sister got this car for high school and treated it like crap, then i got it for high school and i treated it like crap. Ten years in Alaska, two teenager drivers and 200 thousand miles later its still running perfectly. Never once been in a shop. (:
My wife and I purchased this vehicle new in 1995, after all these years I would definitely give this car a thumbs up. Only minor repairs. Perfect starter car. A/C is still going strong after thirteen years.
I purchased this car new in the fall of 1995. It is the SER version with the 2.0 liter motor. It is a well maintained car that at 167,000 miles still has the original clutch. I've changed the brakes a few times the rears just once last fall at 160,000 miles. I've changed the struts and shocks twice. The car has a lot of power for its size, fun to drive too. Gas mileage currently is 28 mpg. The body has held up well for its age. I just noticed a little rust in the right wheel well which I think I may repair. A very reliable fun car. Too bad the new sentras aren't as reliable. I am currently looking to purchase a 1998 or 1999 for a cheap reliable gas sipping transportation.
Great 2.0 liter motor, comfortable seats, good a/c, great headlight design good shifter and gas mileage.
Small cup holder in way of some radio controls. Overhead dome light swith is starting to fail.
My 1995 GLE is very dependable. I get
approx 25/33 city/hwy. Lack of
independent rear suspension affects
handling. Handling is not as precise
as the competition from Honda and
Toyota. I upgraded to slightly larger
and highly rated 14 inch tires but wet
weather braking traction continues
to suffer. It is worse than in similar
sized cars. Excellent brakes in dry
weather. Poor pickup with A/C running
in spite of 5 speed tranny. Car is
very reliable and the stock alloys are
nice. Great highway cruiser - no
complaints there. Car has much better
pickup when using premium fuel.
Velour seats are excellent. Alloy
wheels. Easy to change spark plugs and
flush radiator. Excellent Reliability.
Interior ergonomics. Fuel economy.
Precise steering and good braking.
Small engine. Excellent fit and finish.
Need independent suspension and
torque, please. Civic and Corolla have
better handling, performance and fuel
economy. Car is light. Poor stereo.
Need a smoother 5 sp tranny. Exhaust
should last longer than 84K miles.
