Overall the Sentra is a very good car.
It's not far behind the Civic or
Corolla in terms of reliability and
quality; not as refined but not far
behind. Perhaps the best value amongst
the three. I purchased with the $2500
rebate so it was defenitely a great buy
for around $12K dlls for the 1.8S w/
carpets, microfilter & splash guards
and Auto tranny. About $3500 less than
the Civic and Corolla.
Ride comfort, Radio system (not bad for
a standard system), decent power for a
1.8L 4 Cyl, good size trunk, build
Cup holder placement, cheap plastic
used in some interior parts (center
console, side door panels), not much
more I'd say more power but that's what
the 2.5S is for. The car does what it's
supposed to well.
