Our 2003 was similar. Dealer suggested we replace the overdrive switch. We did and it made no difference. They then said the overdrive solenoid in the transmission was bad and recommended fixing that. We decided to get rid of the car. Each item costs $800 and there was no guarantee it would fix problem. If you take it to a dealer be careful and make sure they are reputable. Make sure ... Read More
I have a 2003 Sentra automatic. Transmission works fine until it shifts to overdrive. When in overdrive the transmission seems to slip. Engine RPM will climb. Transmission will then catch and RPM drops. It continues doing this. If the overdrive button is pushed to turn it off, transmission is fine. We took it to a Nissan dealership. They replaced the overdrive switch. It did not fix it. They then wanted to ... Read More
My 2003 Nissan Sentra, when checked with a code reader, indicates that there is a P0745 problem. What has to be done to the car to correct the problem indicated by this code?
hey buddie The only help I can give you right now is to find out the model # of your engine. Mine was a qr25d hopefully yours is not. I fought with nissan for months headquater executives. they said they wouldn't do a thing for me since mine was at 90,000 too. I went out and got a new car. five months after fighting with them, I filed with the bbb ... Read More
I have a Sentra SE-R, it is not v-spec, but I had only 50000 miles on my car and had to put a new motor in it. I bought a used motor only 30000 miles on it and now that it has hit 50000 like the other motor I am having problems again. First thing that started with my car im the RPM gauge dropped to zero and stayed, no other ... Read More
I need some help I've filed with the BBB Because of my 2003 spec v engine failure. Anybody thats gone this route. I want to talk to.
My 18 year old daughter totaled out 2000 toyota corolla last week. A friend of a friend has a 2003 Sentra SE with 12,000 miles on it that he wants to sell for $7,000. It belongs to his mom who is now in a nursing home. The condition is good - there are some dings and a scratch on the bumper. My big concern is that it does not have side ... Read More
What year cars are we talking about? anyhow, I'd deffinitly scratch the toyota. nothing against them, but 150k miles is a lot. sure, the engine is probably fine, but 150 is a lot of miles on things like exhaust, suspension, transmission and so on. A 150k car (any make/model) can quickly and easily nickel and dime you to death.. as for the honda and nissan, it's hard to say without knowing ... Read More
Can anyone help me locate the sunroof glass for my 2003 Nissan Sentra Spec-V? I'm not looking to purchase a new one but one from an individual parting one out or a salvage yard. Any leads are appreciated. email me at email@example.com Thanks!
I have owned a 2003 Sentra SE-R, automatic transmission for about a year now. It has about 21,000 miles and has ran well for me ever since I purchased the car. Recently, after driving about 20 miles on a warm day, I stopped at a traffic signal, and after a good while, when the signal turned green, I went to go accelerate to continue on down the road, and the car ...

OK, I have owned my 01 Sentra since 2003 (bought it second hand in perfect condition). I have been fortunate enough not to have any major issues with the vehicle, except for the brakes sticking after I parked it for 4 months, and the damn plastic tip of the dipstick broke off, Murphy's Law - I was just heading out for vacation. I have taken such good care of this car, ... Read More
I've got a 2003 Nissan Sentra and for the past two weeks I've noticed some noises. To start off, when I start the car it makes an awful sound like its coming out of an old car. Sometimes it takes 2-3 cranks to get it turned on. At the same time I notice that when I turn on my air condition or heater it makes a noise as well. Not to ... Read More
hawaii007, don't necessarily give up on the power steering idea. After you mentioned it in your recent post I did some research and came across a Nissan Technical Service Bulletin for the 2003-2004 Sentra (TSB #NTB03096) that states: "An applied vehicle has a "HISS" noise from behind the dashboard after the vehicle has been driven for about 15-20 minutes." Furthermore, it tells the technician to listen for the noise while running ... Read More
Sandman, Do you know how I can find out if the recalls on my 2001 Nissan Sentra have been taken care of?? Rob L

Do i have to change only the transmission or i need to change something else. i know a got the same engine 2.5 and i can get 6 speed transmission for 300$ can, what else i need.. thanx for reply.!!!
Thanks for the video. Maybe your 96 Accord is luckier than my 97 Accord. I mean it probably, magically, did not get a 90 degree direct hit by any large debris. If not: I have a few friends working for Detroit. Before I bought the 06 Sentra, one of them told me to be careful about a weaker body, since some car makers reduce the thickness of body steel in the ... Read More
I bough a 1991 nissan sentra xe in 1996 and sold it in 2005 and also had a 1994 sentra and the 1991 sentra gave me so much, the car ran grean during my ownership with it. sentras are great cars, now i have a 2003 sentra ser spec v and it flies like a rocket. I hope nissan never discontinues this model, it is awesome, also my girlfriend drives a ... Read More
Mazda 3 Toyota Corolla Honda Civic Nissan Sentra BUT... theres a new Civic debuting this fall, that looks to be a leader in safety features, though it wont be discounted too much. Additionally, there should be a few changes, but not a total redesign for the Corolla this fall. The Sentra is hopelessly outdated, having debuted in 2000. Skip it (even though I love mine, it is a version that is ... Read More
Hi everyone. I plan to buy my first car and after surfing the internet for days making researches, these are the main 2 cars that interest me: Honda Civic and Nissan Sentra. I based these choices on the look of the car through pictures, on the fact that these brands are respected and on the price range. What would you suggest between these 2 cars? Obviously at the end of the ... Read More
Just called Nissan about the recalls I found online and luckily none affect my car. Am truly happy about that! The Sandman :)
I have a 2002 Nissan Sentra at my check engine light has been on forever, my gas pedal sticks and my driver and passenger windows don't work they have been like that since 2003. My husband took apart the driver window since Nissan dealer New City Nissan in Honolulu Hawaii said they would not cover under warranty, what he found was a completely frayed cable that makes the window go up ...

Just buoght a new 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S yesterday. Did pretty good. $11,888 plus tags, tax, etc. We shopped at Nissan of Tracy in Central California. They were completely awesome, helpful, and honest, which about floored me. Quick backround.... Went in October to Heritage Ford in Modesto. Wanted a 2003 Ford Taurus SE. Nice car, wanted Thirteen something for it. Dad talked them down to 11,500. He was cosigner ... Read More
NEVER dare to go to this dealership! it would be like feeding yourself to the wolves! my husband and i had a terrible experience from them. they ripped us off BIG time! we paid $8,000 more for a 2003 nissan sentra gxe a/t. had an apr of 22% from their own finacing co. we already gave them a $6,000 at that and our credit scores were already >670. good thing we ...

Just a comment to add to the mix: I have been buying my own cars for almost 20 years and have never been more disappointed in a car than my most recent purchase of a 2003 Sentra. I dislike the handling, the shifting, the noise, the locks, the CD player, the gas cap - even the driver's seat is no longer satisfactory. I've owned Nissans before and expected to like this ...

"Overall all Nissan Dealers/ salesperson are not pleasent to deal with. Thats Why Nissan is still behind Honda & Toyota" Unless you have been to ALL Nissan dealers, you are not on ground to make this statement as you have presented it. Additionally, the surveys conducted by Consumer Reports AND JD Powers overwhelmingly indicate that sales satisfaction for Honda, Toyota, AND Nissan all lag the industry average by a significant degree. ...

tomcat630- "Well, if the new one is coming in spring 2005 it will have to be called a 2005.5 or 2006." Perhaps thats the case, but I dont think its necessarily so. The current Sentra was introduced in February 2000 as a 2000 MY model, not a 2000.5, or a 2001. Indeed, Nissan just released pricing and model year designations for the 2004 Infiniti M45 and Q45 at the end of ... Read More
hello all....my girls 2003 sentra hasa machine gun sound from lefttire when brake pedal is depressed all the way down and stopped. it does not happen when braking any idea what it could be? car has 6k miles on it . should nissan be responsible? thank you . Tom

Here is my story. We have Sentra GXE 2000 manual. It was not bad car, and to take care for it for the season to come on 09/23/2003 I drove the car to Brown’s Sterling Nissan in Ashburn, VA, for Fall Car clinic and transmission fluid change. When I went back to collect the car, the advisor told me that they have broken it – “In an attempt to remove the ... Read More
Read your question above about Mobil 1. See my post a few up #1498. I have had great success with the Mobil 1 product. I run it in my Honda engine on my powerwasher, my Craftsman SnowBlower and Lawn Tractor and both my cars. I researched oil a few months ago after seeing an episode on the Speed channel talking about oils. Some professor tested a bunch of oils at some ... Read More
Hi Joe, Sorry, the Yugo statement was just sarcasm. I don't know how tall you are, and if it makes a difference on seat comfort, but I'm 5'10" tall. The seats are very uncomfortable for me. I've owned at least 35 cars in my lifetime, and I'm just not all that impressed with this Sentra. You are correct on the fuel mileage thing though. If I had looked into it further, ... Read More
I recently bought a 2003 Nissan Sentra GXE back in March 2003. I've been driving the car back and forth to work every day. My commute is about 35 miles each way. Since the car was new I've filled the tank everytime when needed and have all my slips showing how many gallons to the 1/1000th. I've recorded my mileage on every receipt. I havn't had the car in for any ... Read More
It's been almost three months since I bought my 2003 Sentra LE and the car has 2,300 miles now. About 80% was short trip city driving(My job is only 2.5 miles away). Should I get the oil changed now or wait till 3,750 miles? The manual says 3,750 miles or 3 months... I didn't know Nissan used a special break-in oil out of the factory.
we are shopping for a new car. saw couple of 2003 leftovers but their prices seems out of whack. here is the spec: 2003 Nissan Sentra GXE with pwr locks, rear defroster, auto, intermittent wipers, 1.8L engine, floor mats, air, and micro filter. he listed MSRP as $16,290 and invoice as $14,969. i think the invoice price is higher than it should be. do you think i can get the car ...

We own 2 of the 4 cars you mention, so I'll offer up my 2 cents' worth. You can get a 2003 Forester X dirt cheap right now. Fitzmall.com has a new 5 speed for $18,555 last time I looked. And resale is strong, keep in mind ownership costs are what you pay minus resale. My '98 still appraises for $10,500, so $8000 over 5 years is excellent. My sister just ... Read More
I was seriously considering getting a 2003 Sentra LE for $14,100 ($3100 off MSRP with $1500 rebate) but I'm not so sure after I found about this recall... NHTSA recall info: ON CERTAIN VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH THE 2.5 LITER ENGINE, THE EXHAUST PIPE HANGER PIN MAY CATCH DEBRIS FROM THE ROAD THAT COULD BE IGNITED BY CONTACT WITH THE MAIN CATALYST. THIS CONDITION COULD RESULT IN A FIRE. ALSO ON 2002 ... Read More
I hear the new 2004 will hit May 15..The pricing will be similar to 2003. They are freshening it up a a bit...new colors, new model names..1.8, 1.8S, 2.5S.. some new features..I will wait. I was going to buy 2003 2.5 LE. I suppose I should wait, but the 2003 has a $1500 rebate. I doubt if 2004 will and probably not at invoice either.
I dont know if these were intended for release yet- I got it from a box at the NY Int't Auto Show. The brochure is not marked either 2003 or 2004, but the ONLY Maxima shown, in a 4 page spread, is 2004 MY. Both the Armada and 2004 Quest are both shown in the back, though no information is provided. I can copy the pages of the Sentra and fax ... Read More
Went to the Montreal Auto show today. Here are my impressions of the cars I saw: 2003 Corolla S: Looks nice, like a mini camry. It looks narow though. I know they increased the size of the car but I think all you get is head room extra. I had the seet back like I would usually in my Protege and my knees were touching the dash (low dash). With the ... Read More
Just got my October Car & Driver with a (sparse) review of the 2002 cars. The bad news, for us here on this forum, is that not much is happening in the low-end market next year. For some reason (profits, maybe?) the automakers are concentrating on the more expensive cars, and trucks. For those of you w/o access to this mag, here's the details (with editorial commentary, of course): * Chevy: ... Read More
I have a black 2001 SE with PP,A/T,sunroof,and ABS. The 6 disc changer was the only option I skipped because I thought i would like the extra space there. However, after reading the posts I just couldn't pass up those deals on the nissan site and ordered the changer for $126. As far as getting a sentra with ABS you are going to have to wait a long time. In March ... Read More
I saw the G35- looks sorta like the new Altima, but this one is supposedly rear wheel drive. Looks good, but it's to be a "high-performance premium sports sedan" so I'm guessing it'll be priced close to the I35, not close to the G20. The G20 looks like it'll still continue basically the same next year. I didn't know that this site existed, and is Nissan's official site for news. I ... Read More
