2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I LOVE my car. It hauls and is fun to race around in. However, my keyless entry went out 30000 miles ago. Now my car feels like I have a flat. Before that my window creaked in the up position. Pros: She can go 50000+ miles without a tune up, she stops on a dime, I like the cupholder position, the brakes are still brand new and it has 60000 miles on it with the original brakes. Overall, I would NEVER trade my car for the world. I love her. (My car is a she.)


Best Features

Brakes, stereo, cupholders, engine, everything!


Worst Features

Make the keyless entry remotes last longer!

I am a courier that drives 300 miles a day on route. I have put 104,000 miles on the car in a little over a year (it now has 117,000). I have never had any problem with the car! It still runs like new.

Review

I have had more problems with this car than my Hyundai. after 1 year (4/06) I had to have a brand new engine .. since then the car goes to the dealer every few months because it just wont start. i'm given numerous reasons about why it just dies they say they fix it and then it dies again .. my 2 year old car is at the shop TODAY! I tell everyone I meet don't buy this car. not to mention the other problems (my cd got stuck in the cd player and now it wont work .. if you use the cup holder it will always change the cd in play .. sound from the brakes) the list goes on and on. get ready for a fight with Nissan Corp if you complain!!


Best Features

the color of the car


Worst Features

everything .. make the car work .. i should have just brought a Honda like my family told me to

2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my car in May of 05 and love it to death. I don't know what I'd do without it. The audio system is excellent and I believe it is roomy enough for me. But in Dec 06 my car has mysteriously stopped turning on but once it is on it runs great. So far the dealership keep replacing the fuel pump and spark plugs and it works for about a week or less, then I can't start it again and again with the replacements. I love this car but it is trouble....


Best Features

I love the Audio system, the look of the car, the ride.


Worst Features

Why are the cup holders in that area??? I don't know but when you put a cup in it changes the cds. Oh and my starting problem...

2005 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I have had my spec-v for almost 2 years now and I love it. Amazingly the vehicle handles great for a front wheel drive and it continues to stick to the road the more you push it. Great torque through the mid-range and braking system is awesome. 24k and still do not need to replace brakes and I'm a very aggressive driver. Best bang for the buck!!!! Outperforms majority of 4 cylinders out there and even 6 cyl.cars-speaking from experience


Best Features

Amazing handling for a FWD and great power


Worst Features

Exterior front end is too weak and interior features could have been a lot better
