2002 Nissan Sentra Sedan GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car used with low miles almost 2 years ago. It's been reliable and fun to drive. Good pickup for a 4 cylinder! But fuel mileage is poor for a compact. I get between 25-30mpg at best. The build quality and comfort could do with a little improvement. Overall, I'm very satisfied with it.


Best Features

Acceleration, fold down rear seats.


Worst Features

Build quality of interior, better suspension, gas mileage.

2002 Nissan Sentra Sedan GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This has been an incredibly reliable car for me. I've used the heck out of it, skipped oil changes, bounced over some roads I shouldn't have, and driven the poor thing at over 120 mph on back roads in Colorado. It's been on two cross-country trips. It will be four years in December that I've owned it, and it's been fantastic. The only problems I've ever had with it were caused by other drivers! It has good pickup for a 4-cylinder and handles beautifully. It also has a great, small turning radius, which makes it very maneuverable when necessary.

Review

My parents got me this care when i learned how to drive, it was a rentl before and had 30,000 miles on it. Within 6 months the car started to die on me when i would be sitting at a light. I have taken it to the dealership more than 6 times in the past 6 months and they never seem to fix it. The car will be ok for a while and then start stalling again and its an automatic! Its a total Lemon and i absolutly hate it!


Best Features

Nothing


Worst Features

Make the car more reliable and the staff that are at Nissan more educated on how to fix their own cars!

Review

I've put 18000 miles per year on my 2002 and have had NO problems. Replaced the breaks and put new tires on it...that's it besides oil changes. Great, reliable vehicle with plenty of zip.


Best Features

Gas mileage, pick up, reliability.


Worst Features

More leg room in rear for adults...fine for small kids though.

Review

I love this car! We've had this car for a year and a half and have put 35,000 miles on it and we couldn't be happier. It runs like a top, it is a charm to drive. It is my third Nissan, and I won't be shopping anywhere else from now on!


Best Features

Gas mileage. We get between 30-35 MPG (we do mostly freeway driving).


Worst Features

Rear seat space. When I drive, no adults can sit behind me, because I have to have the seat so far back that adults don't fit in behind me.
