1999 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan


I purchased this vehicle new back in 1999. I am surprised I still have it after 128,000 miles and still going. This car has been quite reliable with oil and trans fluid changes. As for the problems, the sun visor cracked and I swapped from the passengeer side onto the driver side. Also the driver's side power window push-down button malfunctioned. I opened everything and taped it to make it work. The engine oil is starting to drip very slowly right now. It must be the cranckshaft seal. I'll get to it someday. I can't deny the fact that it's a very reliable car for going from point A to B. In fact, I had owned 1989 Tercel and 1993 Civic. Sentra outperformed both in quality.

Best Features

There aren't any other than the good highway gas mileage. I get 36 or 37.

Worst Features

Renovate the whole look and feel of the car. The steering wheel is too hard to turn for a power steering. The acceleration requires too much foot pressure compare to the other vehicles.
