I've found that Nissan consistently
puts out a great car for the money.
Before I purchased my 1998 Nissan
Sentra SE, I had a 1993 Nissan SE-R
which got 238,000 miles before it got,
for all intents & purposes, totalled.
I had a 5-speed and I was still on my
original clutch!!!My SE currently has
254,000 miles on it and, again, I'm
still on my original clutch!!!Pretty
amazing,huh!!!My maintenance costs
have been very low for this car--
besides gas & oil,I don't think that
I've spent more than $2000 total since
I bought the car.

I have the automatic and have no
problem accelerating to speed on the
freeways, even with passengers and air
on. The air conditioning is nice and
cold. I drove on a 7% grade in the
mountains with 3 heavy poeple in the
car including myself and was easily
able to keep it at 50mph in 2nd gear.
The temp. didn't go up at all
either.It also handles easily with the
power steering. The looks aren't
spectacular but they are contemporary
still and have some personality.
Probably the best feature will be the
reliability of the car.

Five years and running with no major
problems. It's a compact car, but 4 or
five fit easily. The mileage has
averaged about 28 mpg in mixed use, but
over 30 when strictly on the highway.
The best thing about this car? It's
never needed work. Oil changes, regular
tune-ups, tires. Nothing else. Highly

The Nissan Sentra SE is a sporty little sedan with good power and handling. It's basicly identical to the famous 200sx SE-R of that year with the exception of the extra two doors that making the Sentra the more practical of the two. I bought it used only three months ago but so far I am very pleased with the performance and value I got for the price.
