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.

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

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

I love my sentra

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Sentra 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I have had other makes and models of cars, I prefer the Sentra to all the other cars I have owned. I have not had any trouble with my car. It drives great and will take off with out the long wait to warm up like some cars I have owned. It did not cost an arm and a leg. It gets great gas mileage.




Oil well wanted

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Sentra 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

This car after dealership replaced catalytic convertor due to an engine code began using oil at an alarming rate-a quart every 6-700 miles. They don't know why and are putting me through hoops doing an "oil consumption test" that will take months to complete the way they want to do it. Meanwhile I have a car I can't trust to take far from home. Very sorry I purchased a Nissan.




2004 sentra 2.5 sedan

Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Sentra 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

after owning a corolla and civic both 1.8's I test drove the 2004 sentra 1.8. not much difference between all of them. Then I test drove the sentra 2.5 what a pleasure This car really moves. tons of power. A pleasure to drive. I bought it last June and so far no problems For the price I paid it was a bargain I couldn't pass up




So far, so good

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Sentra 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I bought my 04 Sentra 2.5s two weeks ago, and so far, so good. The car's engine is wonderful, quick and responsive. The back seats, however, leave much to be desired as they are VERY cramped. The fuel ecnomy could be better (I'm averaging about 23 mi between city and highway driving). I test drove the Civic while shopping around and although a very solidly built car, I felt its engine was a bit boring and not very powerful at all. So, all in all, my Sentra is turning out to be a pretty good buy.

An excellent car that drives smoothly. The exterior design could use a little work, especially in the front grill.




Average small car, but reliable

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Sentra 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Bought the car new, so far i'm pleased. Haven't had any problems with it unlike my previous 2 cars. Powerful lil car for a V4. The 180watt sound system is amazing. For a small car though, it really eats up gas. For an automatic u can really tell when it is switching gears cause u feel it big time. It'll shake or jerk itself which is a real annoyance. Overall though, it's a reliable little car. Needs some improvements though.
