Excellent car for the dollar. I feel
like I am driving an expensive piece of
equipment. The engine has a lot of
power and it handles like a dream. I
have the sports package with the 16"
tires and the rear spoiler which makes
this car look "SHARP"! Great car and
one of the best purchases I have ever
made. Nissan has made a name for
Tight sound feel when driving.
Excellent sounding stereo system.
Hideous seat fabric. Why couldn't they
have offered a soft leather?
One of the Best cars I have ever owned.
I like it better than our 2000 Maxima.
It's easier to get in and out of than
the Maxima for some design flaw. Some
days I wish I would have purchased the
2.0 model for just a little more pep,
but I really have no regrets! Great car!
The basic design of the Sentra is
wonderful. Very practical design!
The car is actually fun to drive.
Transmission is very responsive – no
annoying downshifts. The engine is a
bit noisy. Steering is CRISP; virtually
no body roll; tight turning radius;
very good road feedback. The car
handles well at highway speeds. Two
words on brakes – be gentle, or you’ll
warp your front rotors in no time.
Already had two recalls: faulty crank
shaft sensor and defective rims – the
dealer took care of both problems and
have done an excellent job. One major
complaint: the metal under the hood
(supporting brackets, heat shields,
wire harness brackets, etc) had started
to corrode. Mileage is very good – I
get consistent 33-34 miles/gallon.
I have well over 75,000 miles on my SE
and it continues to run like new. My
car has all of the standard bolts ons
(More than 25Hp more than stock) and
is used as an autocross and track car
often gaining better times than other
cars twice as expensive. Even with
the hard use, it just keeps on going
without a problem yet. Great car for
the money with a surprising amount of
Great engine, suspension and brakes.
This car handles like a much more
expensive car and costs peanuts to
maintain. Other than regularly
scheduled maintanence I haven't spent
a cent on repairs.
Get rid of multilink beam rear axle.
Chase away the buzzing demons.
