Overall this is a great car. It was significantly cheaper than a Honda Civic and somewhat cheaper than the Toyota Corolla. I've had it a while and it doesn't disappoint. My wife has a new Corolla, and although it gets better gas mileage than my Sentra, I don't think it has as much going for it. The car runs great, gets good gas mileage, and has a lot of nice features for a car that cost less than $14k. Only problems are some squeaks in the dash. Took it to the dealer twice who "never heard the squeak". Dealer experience purchasing it was good; service dept less than acceptable.
All buttons easily accessible, good cd player, nice fit and finish.
Better fuel economy, particularly in city driving. Highway economy is excellent though. Nissan should improve the service departments of its dealerships - my experience has been very bad and frustrating particularly for such a small issue on a car that is under warranty.
