Review of the 2005 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.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Functional cabin design, powerful 2.5-liter engine, nimble handling, lots of standard features.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2005

    The base 1.8 model receives the body-colored door handles and upper instrument panel storage bin from the upper-level models. A trip…

Not worth much

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Car is toast. Kraft Nissan in Tallahassee just told me that the car is toast (engine is toast). They said that they had replaced the head gasket and resealed it. They blamed another company. I checked out the other company, saw hardcopies of the service order, and the results. I'm left with the following conclusions: 2005 Nissan Sentra engines don't last 10 years. Kraft Nissan did a poor in their repair What this tells me is that it is foolish to buy a Nissan in Tallahassee. Bad cars and indifferent service.

Dont buy nissan!!!!

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

ive had nothing but problems with this car. The bumper randomly fell off, the cd player wont eject or take a cd, the visors wont stay up, battery went out after 6 months, blown head gasket, the passenger side windows wont roll down or if you get them down wont go back up, break light switch went out, check engine light wont go off...keeps saying cylinder 3 is misfiring and all the coils, plugs, injectors have all been replaced and STILL cant figure the problem out. This has all happened within the last year. And nissan has nothing to say about any of this. WORST CAR EVER!! i will never again buy nissan or recommend it to anyone. Not even your worse enemy deserves this pain in the ass.




05' sentra shifts strangely

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

We bought this used in 2010 for 6,600 with 83K miles. We found the console light doesn't work nor does the crusie control. It was too late by then to take back to dealership. That was our fault for not checking better. But then we changed the oil after only 40K miles and it was dirty! We haven't found any real problems aside from it shifting jerky going from 1-2 gear and moreso when cold. It is a automatic

What's New for 2005

The base 1.8 model receives the body-colored door handles and upper instrument panel storage bin from the upper-level models. A trip computer and cruise control are now included on the 1.8 S, and all models receive new seat fabrics. There's also a new color for the gauge cluster housing on the SE-R, and a new shift knob for the SE-R Spec V.
