2007 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
Just got my new Sentra, but it's my first new car ever, so my opinion may be biased in that it's such a giant improvement over the last car I was driving. Although that was a Nissan as well & was still going strong with 186,000 miles on it. I love the new Sentra, much roomier than previous generations. The trunk is huge & the 60/40 is great for surfboards or snowboards. The ride is smooth & quiet. I just got the standard S model, but it pretty much has everything I need. Also I'm very short, 4'9" and I love the height adjustment (see below). Overall just a great car.
I absolutely love the height adjustment feature that's standard on the S & SL models. It pumps the seat up about 6 inches higher, kind of like a dentist's chair. I'm only 4'9" and I don't know how I ever drove without it. I can see so much better. I'm tall enough to actually use the sun visors!
