Review

I purchased my 1997 Nissan Sentra in 1998,overall it has been very reliable. The good: not even the harsh winters of Minnesots have stopped this car from running. Also, you can't beat the gas mileage. The bad: I've had consistent problems with the windshield wipers not working, and the check engine light coming on. In January 2005, the master cylinder went out. The cost to repair this, plus get new rear brakes was over $1,000. This has been the only major repair I've needed, but I am wondering if this is the beginning of the end for this car-which still has less than 100,000 miles on it. One warning, this is a tiny car. My significant other, at 6" 4'looks like a circus clown trying to fold his frame into the passenger seat.

Favorite Features

Reliability and gas mileage. The sound system isn't bad, either.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the check engine light and the wipers. Place cupholders somewhere more unobstuctive, and increase the power.
