2006 Nissan Sentra Sedan 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this in December 2006. Nothing special, no power windows or seats. No cruise, no ABS, no AC, wipers have 3 settings, too slow, too fast and 'use only in a monsoon fast'. Car is squirrley on the freeway, extremely noisy, but I've gotten almost 40MPG on roadtrips doing 70MPH. If you do not turn on the power and let it set and beep a few times before turning the engine it stalls or has a hard start. Runs great on regular oil. Interior is very cheap. cupholders are useless and cups can interfere with manual shift knob. Drivers door has always had a tiny and occasional leak.


Favorite Features

It's nice looking on the exterior.


Suggested Improvements

fix what is apparently a VERY common starting problem. A lot of people complain about the hard start and Nissan will replace, under warranty, the fuel pump, but that's apparently not a problem solver. Must turn the key to power and let it beep before starting to avoid hard start.

2006 Nissan Sentra Sedan 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased this car in 2006 with only 300 miles on it, since then I have driven to hell and back. It now has 127369 miles on the engine, and the car still running strong. I already replaced the belts, spark plugs and the stock tires, but that would qualify as normal wear replacement. The one issue and biggest problem I have with this car is the fuel pump, at 80,000 miles it gave out and I found out many sentra customers have the same issue. Why will Nissan not do a recall on this unit, to me it seems like nissan does not care for its customers. They want this to come out of our own pocket even though it is a manufacturer problem, nothing the customer has done has caused this faulty fuel kit.


Favorite Features

good engine still a nissan!


Suggested Improvements

better transmission, better placement of cup holders, remember the motto "customer comes first", do a recall on the fuel pump assembly and redesign the whole fuel kit even when replaced its faulty once used, they are just putting on the car a new bad part.

Review

I've owned a Lexus and it doesn't compare to my Nissan. It's roomy, it's comfortable, and it can pass anyone on the road!, there nothing bad I can say about it.


Favorite Features

MPG, interior, acceleration.


Suggested Improvements

Move power outlet so it's not behind cup holder.
