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

Review

This car is just a poor example of how a compact should be made. Even though it is Japanese it is more on par with its American counterparts then it is its Japanese. The car is loud, VERY loud. Tire noise, thumps, bumps, squeaks, rattles, etc. The windows make a rustling noise when you lower them. Just poorly constructed. 0-40 was actually impressive, however the torque curve is set that way intentionally; probably a good city car however merging onto the highway is not fun. I just traded this in for an 04 Civic. NO COMPARISON. Honda wins hands down.

Favorite Features

0-40 acceleration. That's about it.

Suggested Improvements

Build it tighter. Add sound dampening.
