2006 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Lets just say this is a damn good car if its still running after a year of my husband behind the wheel he has a record of tearing cars up in less than 6 months and trust me this little car has been threw hell but I still feel confident getting behind the wheel it take me where I need to go comfortably and shes running like a top to this day.


Best Features

I feel safe driving and putting my children in the car.


Worst Features

Cup holders should be moved in a horrible place right in front of the 6 disc.

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Parents bought me this car (first one). Had it for 2 years this month. Average 29mpg 23 city / 39 highway. I usually only do 65-70mph on high way, was shocked at the mileage. I like that it has an aux. jack, which btw the 2006 infiniti doesn't even have (only included in the 2008 model). Windshield wipers leave massive streaks, but I think I needed to get that replaced. I can't ever seem to find a comfortable head rest position on long trips. Engine sometimes misfires on start up, I just have to wait a second and try again, not that big of deal. Hate the cup holders, fine for cups, but bottles fall right out on corners, also hits cd buttons because of position. 20 yo/boy/5'8''


Best Features

aux audio jack, price ($12k before taxes in 2007). great high way mpg. stereo system is pretty good, not noisy for the neighbors.


Worst Features

cup holders!! head rests. Would suggest better tires since mine slips like crazy in the snow, dad replaced them with eagle gt's but I'm getting a 09 altima this week so I won't know how they handle.

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This was my 2nd Sentra and our family's 6th Nissan since 1988. I also purchased the same model/year for my daughter, which was clearly a mistake. This will be my last Nissan as both the quality and reliability have decreased tremendously! My daughter and I both have problems with the fuel pumps needing replaced multiple times because of a defect. We are getting ready to take our vehicles back to the dealership for the 3rd time for fuel pump issues. Belts had to be replaced at 20k miles, because as dealership said, "they're inferior". Back window jammed due to defective part in door (back window was hardly used). These aren't quality cars anymore.


Best Features

Decent gas mileage.


Worst Features

Terrible cupholders!

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


Review

Bought this car for gas mileage, but was also impressed with performance from the little 1.8. Very reliable, only problem so far is the heater control lite. car is pretty comfortable for the size, the back seat is tight, but who cares I sit in the front.


Best Features

Economy, handling, cheap to own, and the older style body (the car looks like a car, not a wedge of cheese or something).


Worst Features

My biggest complaint is the rather low 5th gear, (RPM whine on the highway). I think is to avoid having to down shift on highway, but it hurts high-speed fuel economy (MPG drastically drops as you drive above 70-80ish.)

2006 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I bought my Spec V with 400 miles. Now at 15,300 running premium gas as recommended and synthetic fuel. I average 25.8 mpg. Incredible little car that's extremely pleased me after owning a twin turbo Volvo and an 88 Supra n/a.


Best Features

Peppy motor handling.


Worst Features

Ugly 17 inch wheels i'd prefer the 02-05 models, what's with down grading ?
