The Nissan Sentra LE compares quite
favorably to ever other car I test
drove (Protege, Civic, Corolla,
Elantra, Jetta). The 165 HP engine is
at the top of the class and is mated
very well with the automatic
transmission. Handling is relatively
tight - though perhaps not as tight as
the Protege. Interior velour cloth is
a nice touch and the stereo stystem is
truly wonderful (180 watt with 7
speakers). I bought this car on the
last day of March as incentives were to
expire (they may well have come back by
the time you read this).
165 HP engine - you'll merge with ease
and have some pep out of lights. Great
Stereo System, ABS, Side Airbags all
standard. Leather steering wheel.
Alloy Wheels, front and rear disc
brakes (most small cars have only rear
drum brakes. Very good incentives.
Fog Lights should be standard on LE
(even if this ups the price). MP3
player with CD player. Try to eek out
a bit more gas mileage from engine
(Civic does blow the Sentra LE away on
gas mileage - other cars, less so).
More room in back seat.
