This vehicle overall is reliable, but there are some major issues that have convinced me to never purchase a Nissan again. 1. Computer failure at under 1000 miles 2. Wheel bearing failure of both rear wheel bearings at under 30000 miles (Dealership tried to get out of warranty repair until I showed them that the wheel bearings were specifically covered under drivetrain warranty) 3. Technical bulletin on the fuel pump that causes a hard start. This fuel pump problem of course failed just past the warranty limitation and costs dearly to replace. I recommend replacing this yourself as I fear Nissan may just replace the fuel pump assembly with another OEM "broken" assembly
The cup holders are awesome.... ! everytime I put a drink in the holder I change CDs. Oh and the auxillary power port is great too. Almost every time I use it in conjunction with the primary power (which prevents the use of the awesome cupholder on the driverside) the fuse blows
Fire the engineer who designed this garbage with broken parts, no common sense, and the back seat can barely seat people with legs. What I mean by this is that there is no room to even place your legs on the floor unless the front passengers move up cramming their knees into the dash/steering wheel
I love this car. This is the first car my parents got for me when I was 16 and I still drive it today. The car has great gas mileage I haven't had any wear and tear problems and it looks great for a car that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I don't like the interior very much, the back seats are cramped, and the cup holders aren't very well made. In fact, the cup holders broke because they were so flimsy and the ones in the front stink as well. Other than that, this is a fun reliable car, great for a teen getting their first car.
I like the body design, the 6 disc changer, and the car has great handling.
Move the cup holders, and make the holders in the back less flimsy.Better quality seating.
The 1.8S is by far the best car I have ever had. My car has not broken down once so far, and it now has 104,000 miles on it. The CAM sensor went bad at about 85,000, but my car still never broke down in the process. The gas mileage I get is approx 34 on the HWY, and about 27 in town. My car is BRIGHT yellow, so with the spoiler, and black bra I put on the front, very sporty. The bucket seats could have a bit more padding. If you treat this car well, it will treat you well. I have taken many road trips in this car, NEVER worried about if my car will break down or not. The heat blasts me out of the car!!!!
Color (sunburst yellow), looks great on this car! Gas mileage is awesome! Heat is awesome in this car.
This car needs a smaller rim size. I have only been able to find my tire size at a few locations, and they are considered a specialty/sport tire size and cost me about $600 for a new set of 4. Crazy!!! They could have done a better job with the AC...I do have a hard time staying cool on a hot day
I owned 3 Sentras before this one and a 97 Maxima and Nissan truck. Loved them all. Not this one. It does get good mileage but considering how underpowered it is should do better. The tires it came with were terrible. I replaced them with Falkens on 17" rims and it sure did make the car look nice IMO. (But that's probably just me, the car never seems to turn anyone else's head.) Things I hate: -often does not start on first try -clunky shift from first to second -too underpowered to maintain 65 mph during cruise control without down shifting -drivers side door seal leaks when driving in rain -Service Engine Soon light on at 60 K -lack of safety equip -seats do not go back far enough
stereo system (I have the special edition with Rockford Fosgate system including audio jack for my mp3 players) looks...both interior and exterior, it's a good looking car IMO
needs a 2.0 Liter...pretty sure the 2007 Sentras did away with most of the flaws I notes (but the new models are ugly IMO)
