I have three words that describe my car "I love it." I purchased the 5- speed and it has pleanty of zip around town, the color is awesome (Blue) and I have the added spoiler on mine with the tinted windows. It amazes me how many people have complimented me on my new "cheap" car purchase and thier willingness to share their stories of driving their Sentra's 100K +. I commute a 100 miles everyday so I am really appreciating the incredible gas mileage. I am averaging close to 35 mpg in mixed driving! Took it on a trip to Palm Springs and averaged just under 40 mpg! I find the car to be a great place to spend time, and find the cruise control to be right on.
Smooth shifting 5-speed, the standard CD player still is very nice, and find the seats to be comfortable.
Really wanted a "Special Edition" but was very disappointed to find out it only comes in automatic. Automatics are great for some but I still like to shift myself, and you do not get the same MPG or zip of the 5-speed. Cup holder blocks power outlet, should be moved to center console to be closer
