Overall, a fine car for my needs
(highway driving, short distances).
Have had four recalls. Also have
noticed the sqeaky fan belt in the
mornings. Dealer replaced it once and
another place tightened it (already
tight) but it still squeals. Wind noise
above 65 mph. Brakes are fine for me.
I only bought this car as this was the
only dealer that would give me credit..
but I am very happy with it. Starts
well, the driver seat is so comftable I
dont need a cushion like I do on many
other cars I have driven, it looks good
and its FAST - Iv done over 100 in it,
very nippy with controlls well laid out
altogether a pleasure to drive. The
back seats look a little crapmed but I
have actually never sat in it as a
passenger and none of my passengers
have really complained, so it cant be
This car is so easy to do repairs on
you can almost "undress" the plastics
without tools! I love that!
Engine very quite at idle.
PLEASE dont ever again make a car
without intermittent wipers!!! Or
without closable fan vents!! I did not
notice this at the dealer and would
have thought twice if I had. Its very
annoying. I also would have liked
folding seats, like the Corrola.
A very good car.50,000 miles and no
problems.A little slow off the line
with automatic trans but over 60mph it
flies.36 mpg highway,no complaints
there.can't think of another car in
this class I would rather have.I am a
mechanic and have seen a lot more
problems with Honda and Toyota.I am
Looked at Toyota, Chevy, and Mazda
before deciding on Nissan. Good value
for the money. Great MPG. Car comes
with all basics, cd, power locks,
windows, mirrors. Sentra handles
nicely and is peppy for a small car.
Fit and finish pretty good also.
Everything is easily in reach, all
gaugues easy to read. Lots of little
storage compartments for all of your
more room in the rear would be nice.
The 60/40 split seat opening should be
a litte larger
I got this car new for $15K and have been
completely happy with it. I wish I had gotten
the moonroof and VLSD, but am satisfied
otherwise. The exterior styling is kind of plain,
but not bad looking, and is definitely
improved by the spoiler. On windy days,
especially at highway speeds, I get a strange
whining/buzzing sound from behind the
center console. No idea what's loose.
Absolutely love the handling, and the engine
has plenty of oomph. Clutch does slip
Great engine and suspension for the $$. Very
good quality build inside and out. Good fuel
economy. Titanium faced gauges are pretty
Very little rear seat leg room. Rear seats could
fold down more, and pass-through opening
from trunk could be larger.
