Review of the 2004 Nissan Sentra

  • Packed with features, the Sentra offers a lot for the money, but a cramped rear seat and an aging interior design leave it a step behind the competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Functional cabin design, SULEV emissions for California-spec cars, nimble handling, lots of standard features.

  • Cons

    Generic styling, small backseat, SE-R Spec V model commands premium price.

Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Bought it for 10k back in March of 09, when living in Dallas tx I drove it to Louisiana and Oklahoma.... Then turned around and drive it up here to Washington state. I really had no issues, the only issue I'm having with it now is when I start it after its already warmed up I have to try 2x. But a tune up should fix that. Its my 2nd car my first was a Honda civic and it greatly compares, my next purchase will be a Nissan.

I purchased my 2004 SE-R in 11/2003. I have had a few problems with it. The sensor was acting up and the vehicle kept stalling out. Turns out it was a recall after I paid for the repair. I have extended warranty so Nissan retuned the money I paid for the repair. I also had to have the radio replaced- there was a CD stuck in it and the dealership I deal with could not repair it so they replaced it- go figure. The gas mileage is great- this is my 2nd Nissan and wouldn't purchase anything else. I'm having a problem with the brake light coming on at the moment and will take the car in for a check up. May be trading off for a newer model Nissan. I hate to do it because I love this car !!!

I had a '97 sentra GXE then traded it in for the awesome SE-R. Great car, tons of fun to drive. NEVER HAVE HAD A SINGLE PROBLEM, even after 15,000 miles. Love the power.

The SE-R is the best Sentra ever, the powerful engine + the small size of the car = fun to drive




Great little car!

Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Ive had this car for about 3 weeks now and im loving it completely. This is my first new car, and im so glad i went with the SE-R its quick, fun to drive, great handling, i got the audio fanatic pacakage and that is so worth it, the sound in that car is so awesome, and the 2.5L engine is like a mini V6. Great HP and Torque make acceleration fun and easy. The gas mileage is ok, it runs about average with other cars. Overall, If you want a small sporty car thats affordable and fun to drive, id suggest it to anyone looking for a car like this!




Se-r turbo!

Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I bought this car back in 2003 and I got ripped off, but I now that I look back on it,it was worth every penny. Itsa nice entry level car for teenagers, and I love the torque steer!!!
