This was my 4th Nissan (1 Sentra and 2
Altimas). I made the mistake of buying
the '02 Altima when it 1st came out,
and had nothing but problems. While at
the dealership (where it had been towed
again) I saw the Sentra. The interior
was far nicer - though smaller, had the
same engine, and the price was right.
Bought it on the spot. While not as
attention getting as the Altima, it
feels much more solidly built, and has
standard options (ABS, side-impact SRS,
trip computer) that I have never had.
Very underrated car!
Front design - in keeping with the
Maxima standard. The pick up is
outstanding. Great standard features
for this trim level. Adequate headroom
for all 6'3'' of me.
Rear design resembles a Hyundai.
Suspension/tires should be improved to
handle the 2.5. Floor it, and the
front end gets a life of its own. MPG
is horrible. I am only getting 22.5 in
suburban driving while not driving
