Nissan does not compare to

Vehicle: 1999 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan

I bought this Nissan new. It ran well and was very dependable...until the odometer turned 100,000. Then, magically, it became a money pit. Within one year, I replaced CV joints, tie rods, alternator, water pump...and then it developed an aversion to starting. That's when we parted ways.

Perfect teenage car!

This is it. This is the car for any first time drivers. This is the teen car! Nothing too fancy, but it gets you from A to B. The problems though was that I had a crack in the coolant pipe. I have an exhaust leak right now and it drags my rpm down because of it. The driver window is dying and I can't open the trunk with my key. Some rust spots here and there. My belt is making an awful squeaking noise and I think I'm going to have to change my alternator soon. In all this car holds up to the abuse of the teenage driver. Great gas mileage, great on highway, easy to negate in almost every tight spot. Its good car but not perfect....unless its for a teenager.

Got this car for my 19th birthday. very nice car just needs a couple of things. speed sensor went out. for only 115 hp it gets the job done. needs speakers. back passenger window is off. front right door dosent open from outside. Driver power window button is not working right. needs new front and back bumper, and paint but other than these problems car runs great for almost 200,000 thousand miles.

Best car ever

Vehicle: 1999 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan

I purchased this vehicle from a single owner. It is GREAT in the snow. It's well maintained and regularly gets 40+ MPG city and 50's MPG on the highway. I'm not sure how it's fuel rating is only shown as 29. Only major mechanical issues up to 150,000 miles have been 2 sets of struts, 1 water pump, and a clutch replacement. It's an absolutely amazing, reliable car.

Great until 150,000miles

Vehicle: 1999 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan

Not one problem until 153,000 miles. Drove great, then December 2008 my starter went out. After that was fixed I've had to replace the battery cables, and alternator. Right now it won't start and I can't figure out what it is. The cupholders stink, and forget about fitting 3 car seats in the back! The trunk rattled when I had 12" subs in there, but it sounded great when I fixed that.

I am selling my Sentra after driving it since 2002 (bought off a lease). Overall, it's been a super car: great gas mileage, no major repairs. Not the sportiest looking and very bare bones inside, but it's taken me many miles and been very reliable. A/C stopped working last summer (not fixed), trunk no longer openable by key, some rust on body. Had to fix clutch, A/C once before in 2002, brakes but other than that, no major problems.

Hi everyone. The following is a letter I sent to Nissan Canada in regard to the terrible mileage I'm getting from my 2009 Sentra. Read on and respond if you like....

Hi there! Have enjoyed hearing about early 1990's and early 2000 Sentras but see very little about 1999 Sentras. I can take that one of two ways: 1) the '99 was a great model year and has few issues...

First off, let me say i sympathize with you on your problematic experieince with your nissan sentra. Ironically, i've owned 3 (2 sentras and a 200SX) and never experienced a problem with either. I'm...
