2006 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
This car had 11,900 miles when I purchased it and was like new. It was great when it was working but I have had a multitude of problems and issues. It won't crank easily after the engine has been warmed up, it turns over and over forever before starting. Dealer fixed it once but it's doing it again and now it's not under warranty. The crankshaft sensor has gone bad and is a listed recall but Nissan says my VIN wasn't affected, obviously. Now the car wants to turn off while driving. It consumes oil like crazy, have to add oil in between changes. Fun to drive when it's working but not worth the headache. Nissan doesn't honor anything, steer clear.
6 speed manual transmission, good suspension. Fun to drive.
Honor recalls on known defects. Just because a car's VIN isn't listed as being affected doesn't mean it wasn't affected. More space inside, leather seating.
