March 2005, I purchased my first Nissan.
Over a year and over 3K later my mechanic gave up and said take it to Nissan - 3rd cylinder misfire. How can so many owners have the same problem and Nissan doesn't recall it?
NO MORE NISSANS for me.

I have had dozens of cars and this has been the best.
Purchased used with about 40,000 miles, now about 90,000.
Only repairs have been wearout items like tires, battery, etc.
Have the 5 speed stick shift and it has lots of power, even with the a/c on, which by the way, works very well.
Has power windows, power brakes, cd, a/c, cruise control, remote trunk and mirrors, just enough gadgets to be comfortable.
It's not a luxury car, but for an econobox, its really a great great car.

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.
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.
