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


Bought the car used in 2008 with just under 30k. Since then the radio has quit working (twice). It was the upgraded fosgate one. The transmission has squeaked, nissan wouldn't cover it under powertrain warranty, rear wheel bearing went out, fuel pump, and the belt has squealed on and off since we got it. Exhaust started leaking around 50k miles. The engine is loud when your in the car, and there is a ton of road noise. Car has overall been a nightmare, full of problems. Completely dissappointed. Not at all what I expected from a modern, name brand car. Won't ever buy a nissan again.

Favorite Features

The brakes? They're the only thing that hasn't broken.

Suggested Improvements

Move the cup holders, cover the transmission problems under drivetrain warranty, fix the fuel pump issue. The child seat hooks are hard to get to.

I just bought a 2006 Nissan Sentra a month ago and i noticed the same thing with the cars transmission. Everytime the car goes to shift from second to third, or even shifting from 4th to 3rd the car makes a faint chirp into the third gear. Im not sure if thats what was happening to your car but if you could help it would be most appreciated
