2003 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


I bought this car exactly 4yrs ago for my GF. it had about 33k miles on it. it now has about 93k miles on it. These cars & other nissians , have had recalls due to crank and or cam sensors going bad. When this happens...your car STOPS...the engine just shuts completely off! You could be at a light, driving on the highway, going up a hill or on a wet or icy road....the car will just die without warning! BOTH senors went out within a few months of each other. Once on my GF in busy commute comming home! We have no kids and don't smoke and we take care of our cars, however we also have had, 2 window motors die, glove box just broke, visor fell apart, ignition won't unlock..etc etc

Favorite Features

nothing. these cars have no power unless you get the even more problematic Spec versions! You want sporty, get a miata, camaro, stang, some type of turbo'd VW... this is NOT a performance car.

Suggested Improvements

Get a honda or toyota! yeah toyota's are not known for their sportiness or fun to drive characteristics....however...they are No. 1 in reliability...period. This year we are ditching this piece of junk and getting something better, and it will be either one of those 2 brands I mentioned, because we don't want to have to worry about crap breaking down!
