Review of the 1997 Nissan Sentra

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Relatively powerful engine, nice interior ergonomics, and good fuel economy.

  • Cons

    Boring styling.

  • What's New for 1997

    The base model is now simply called "Base" instead of S. Nissan works to quiet the Sentra's interior by using a bigger muffler and reducing the number of suspension-mounting points.

Bad rear struts

Vehicle: 1997 Nissan Sentra 4dr Sedan

We bought this car for a teenaged daughter, it had a very rough first sixty thousand miles. The woman who owned it hit everything in her way. We bought her cheap, replaced 3 bent wheels, a bent back axle, light body work, lots was already done. I replaced an alternator at 98 thousand, and just replaced my third set of rear struts also replacing the springs this time. Hopefully to change my luck. The car runs nice for what it is.




Good car

Vehicle: 1997 Nissan Sentra 4dr Sedan

I bought the car new in '97, it has 67,000 miles, and it still is as reliable as the first day I bought it. The only thing that has failed (major or minor) is the ingnition coil in my distributor, which I was told is a freak occurance in any car. The only major drawback with this car is it's lack of power which can get frusterating when accelerating uphill or passing cars.




Nissan is greeeaaat!!!
