2007 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
I decided to go with the 07 model after totaling my 97 Sentra in early 2006. It seemed like a nice upgrade. Almost immediately I began having problems with driver's seat making squeaking noise and shifting forward/backward just to annoy me. Three dealerships, and they all say they can't duplicate it. CD player likes to fade in and out when I turn it up loud, and the drivers side door lock controls are making a "whooshing" sound when I use it. Since it's not happening "all the time", Nissan won't address the problem. I've learned it's got to break in order for them to fix it while its under warranty, otherwise wait for your warranty to expire and revisit them. They'll fix it then.
Comfortable front seats, does well on long road trips, nice pickup, roomy trunk
Backseats are hard, lots of blindspots in this car, interior plastic is cheap and scratches/stains very easily, gas tank should be on the other side, tire sensors are overly sensitive, after a year with no water damage the car smells moldy
