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


Review

Got this car with 14k on it in 06 and has over 60k now. Gas milage is far better than factory sticker. Being 6'3", this car is way small. The cup holders are worthless. The ride is ok, very noisy. Doesn't like to start on first try some times or it starts and dies. Have an on going issue with the plug for the mass air flow sensor. Keeps getting dusty and then the car through an engine code and won't drive, have to blow out the plug to get it to run. Performance is poor, I had an 88 Honda Accord that had a better ride and more pep then this car.


Best Features

Gas milage


Worst Features

Interior room, cup holders, noise dampening, better performace (125hp is bad), and maybe a better location for the m.a.s. plug.

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


Review

Best model: 1.8 S Special Edition. Edmonds' data and reviews are wrong. This is an excellent vehicle. Bought this used with 18K miles. For 10 months have driven car in the city or making short commutes. We also have taken two long trips of 2600 miles. I was a mechanic for years. Note: our other car is a Cadillac with all of the bells and whistles. 1.8 Special Edition model has good looking wheels and spoiler, keyless entry, etc. In terms of features it has more than our Cadillac excepting power seats. Interior is typically basic for an economy car. The leg room is fine for anyone under 6'3. Mileage is 33 with 1.8 Liter engine and auto trans. Handles well. Super sound. Nice car.


Best Features

Never pump the gas to start. Starts and runs perfectly. Plenty of acceleration to get onto highway. Quiet engine and trans. Brakes are fine. AC is fine. Easy interior controls for everything. Lots of storage spots for sunglasses, maps, CD's, books. Back seat folds down for trips to nursery.


Worst Features

Only suggestion: a bit more sound deadening insulation in the cabin. It is true that the road noise is more noticeable at 55 or higher than our Cadillac. Another cause is the low profile tires that come from the factory. In a week we did not notice anymore. Not too bad. Other models not as good.

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


Review

I'm very disappointed in this car. It just got its second fuel pump about 6,000 miles ago which is going bad again, the rack and pinion had to be replaced soon after purchase, the drivers door seal leaked water and had to be replaced, the radio stopped playing out of the passenger side speakers and had to be replaced, the drivers window regulator has been replaced three times and still doesn't work properly (the dealer also broke the glass twice), the air conditioner doesn't blow cold unless your on the highway, when you turn the air conditioner on it makes a weird noise, and their is a squealing noise when you start the car and the dealer/nissan customer service are not help at all.


Best Features

price although its not worth the headache, the aux jack, gas mileage


Worst Features

reliability, cup holders, nissan customer service (they told me I should have called each time the car was at the dealer to let them know I was having problems)

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.
