1999 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan


I bought this car new in 1999. It has made several cross country trips and taken me to work and back for 8 years. I have never been stranded anywhere. It has been a great, reliable, practical first car. It isn't really "fun to drive". I often joke that I have two hamsters under the hood and one of them is tired. If you have a drink in the cupholders, it will block your radio controls. Both the 1 and the 6 preset buttons broke off about 4 years ago. The cruise control works great, but the button has a hole in it where I've pushed it one time too many. Overall I've loved this car, but I'm excited to have enough money now to buy something with a little more luxury and style.

Best Features

Reliability, gas mileage, price.

Worst Features

Make an option with more horsepower, move the radio or cupholders, need lumbar support in front seats, better quality for the interior.
