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)
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.
It's nice looking on the exterior.
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.
