2004 Nissan Sentra Sedan 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Power steering fluid leaks. I have to keep checking and topping up when necessary. Makes a squeaky noise on the driver's side, front end as I drive over bumps (speed bumps). Makes a squealing noise under the hood, mostly on wet days. CD player didn't want to give back a CD. I had to take it to the dealership. They replaced the CD Player but didn't return my CD. The trunk release no longer works from inside the car nor does the remote control open it.

Review

Aww man, i got this car like 2.5 years ago, it had 52,000 when i got it in 07, it currently has 140,000. Its been in 2 accidents, 6000 in damage the first time, and it was just currently totaled from me side swiping a tow truck, and hitting a guard rail. Its a great car, i have had some of the problems listed from everyone else, dealer had to put a fuel pump in it, crank sensor, new window motor and trunk motor, when i bought it the tires were "new" but had bad road noise. dealer replaced those too. Also, the damn belt has been replaced 4 times, still squeaks like crazy, doesnt hit bumps very well,and gas guage doesnt always go to full, if ya turn left fast it will, or about 60MI it goes up


Favorite Features

Decent speakers for stock, gas mileage is pretty good, was better when it was newer, i get about 320 miles off a tank, city/hwyVery durable car from my last accident, its still driveable, needs 2 tail lights, 2 pass. side doors, front right fender, and headlight. 2 weeks after, got rear ended at 40!


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders are bad! every time i turn my monster spills unless i hold it. Never came with the adjuster. Better Stock radio, i liked it, but cd player broke, And some different pins to hold glove box in. Got pulled over, cop asked me for my registration, went to open the glove box and it fell on floor

Review

Since buying this car nothing but small problems. The interior was put together carelessly. moon roof lining fell down, very generic. I have a starting issue in where it doesn't catch when turning over. it's fine when I start it for the first time during the day, but come back after about an hour and it stalls a few times, before starting. The aluminum wheels are pretty bad. leak air from rims. The moon roof does not close all the way. Some rust near the spoiler, in which one side of spoiler is rotted through trunk. Car drives okay. Wouldn't buy this car again. To many small issues, however nothing big yet. I have about 82,000 for mileage.


Favorite Features

Not much on this car to like.


Suggested Improvements

The interior needs to be done better

Review

Have had gas issues,were it wouldn't take gas,just spit it back out.Bought my car with 22 miles on it, and so far so good. It is a 2004 and has 54,000 miles on it.So far just the gas issues and it does take 2-3 times to start most of the time. It is a reliable car,drove back and forth from Pa to Vegas and it is great. Very good on gas.
