I have had my 2001 Nissan Sentra SE for 50,000 miles and only the brakes have cost me a fortune to fix. It starts in cold winters and never has let me down. It has excellent reliability, is fun to drive and is a good car to get around in with enough options. My only complaint are the Firestone tires... I went through the original pair way to quickly and had to replace them 30,000 miles in.
Sunroof, keyless entry, fog lights and leather wrapped steering wheel. Fun to drive, great on gas.
Better tires and a sixth gear. 60 mph has this car running high on the RPM side.
