Good Car, Bad Trim
By Mamajones on
1996 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan
I bought this car used with 39000 miles
and have NEVER had a major problem. It
now has 109K and shows no signs of
slowing. The major gripe we have is
the interior is not as well designed as
we would like. It seems that every
couple of weeks we find a "mystery"
piece of plastic or molding that fell
off from somewhere. Also has problems
with exterior paint chipping and slight
rust. Paint is bubbling and peeling in
spots. Good gas mileage. Averaged 33
mpg on the last long distance trip. We
average about 300 miles per tank for
normal driving. Would recommend as a
good basic car.
Gas mileage, overall reliability, front
seat comfort for car size is nice.
Interior design needs to be better, cup
holders moved, paint chips easily.
