Lucked out with a great Jaded SE

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


'Green Machine' has been great since day 1! Am original owner for 8 years and still happy with it as day 1. So far engine still totally reliable. Will drive this until it stops running, which seems to be a long way away! I would be a fool to sell/trade it the way it (and the economy) is going. See below for pros and cons. Overall the cons are minor. No car is problem-free and this was a great graduation gift from PT school from my dad. I could trade it in for something new, but there is no justification for it, esp as it runs too well. May modify it with front fascia and will repaint the top. So far the only mods are tinted windows. Don't know if I lucked out or if they are all this good!

Favorite Features

Dashboard pop-up compartment, sunglass holder location. Push-in overhead lights. Drives with a sporty feel.Interior is well-designed and solid materials, sport cloth seats durable- no wear. Leather steering wheel feels good to touch. Timing chain vs belt! Spacious trunk- used it for many moves.

Suggested Improvements

Watch for paint oxidation- Bigtime on top. Stiff sport suspension: Vibrations annoy pregnant wife, may feel lots of bounces esp. if you have a bad back/neck. Funny-looking trunk. Power is fair (it is a 4 cylinder). 1 window motor was replaced, sunroof latch broke. Seat comfort fair on long rides.
