A Summary of Nissan Sentra Experience
By kapes13 on
2004 Nissan Sentra 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Vehicle was purchased with 24K miles and has needed serpentine belt replacement, has had 2 recalls all new exhaust and catalytic converter be sure and get fixed on recall, needed ECM reprogram on recall. BAD PROBLEM had fuel shoot out the nozzle, this is the Vent Control Valve needs to be replaced. Mine also has the starting issues and had to modify battery terminals. Also will not eject CD and there has been an onset of dropped mileage since exhaust replacement. Now car has 69,000, trying to take care of it so it will drive 200K, we will see. The car is okay I guess, please heed these issues.
Was great on mileage but since recall replacement mileage is sketchy somewhat reliable if you watch it great power and handling for 4 cylinder like that.
More room in back seat. We will see if the car goes the distance so many Nissan owners claim they run 200K I will try with this one for sure not hopeful right now.
