2001 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Unfortunately I have not been as lucky as others who have posted here. I have had the computer go out at 70k, the rotors go out at 100k, the brake pads are replaced every other month, I get about 17 MPG. I have had the fuel filter replaced, the steering column replaced, and must do regular flushes to all fluids. I bring it in monthly to a mechanic (and have switched a few times just to make sure the mechanics weren't messing with the car). Can anyone say lemon?

2001 Nissan Sentra SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have been content with my Sentra SE. It gets good gas mileage (30s) and has been relatively problem free. The ride on this car is a bit rough at times, but I've become accustomed to it. Some issues I've had to repair are the A/C needed to be recharged, O2 sensor replaced, and the driver's side window motor was replaced (automatic windows).


Favorite Features

Gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Improve the ride.

Review

Got this car brand new. Quit running once, the cram shaft sensor went bad. Three window regulators had to be replaced. That is all I did to it, and now it has 95K miles on it and still runs like new. Use synthetic oil and perform maintenance as expected. Gas mileage is decent compared to other cars I've got. Handles great in city and highway. It is not the smoothest and quietest rider ever, but it is expected for the price your pay for it. Really great cheap car.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage, reliable, lots of room in the trunk.


Suggested Improvements

Not enough space if you have to put baby seats on the back. Somewhat loud ride when in highway.
