2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
I just purchased my black 2.0 after several months of research. Drove many comparable models, domestic and foreign. My first impression and that of my wife, who first drove the car this morning, is great car. The CVT. It was a snowmobile to me first, but it really seems to work. Road noise? A little, but that's what radios are for. I was looking for a stripped down daily driver and found this rather impressively equipped S model for a better price than the others. You know who you are. Since this car has all of 36 miles in it, I'm marking the build quality and reliability in the middle. Check back.
Visibility, head room and trunk space. I like the engineering in the CVT, but we'll see about the reliability. Wife likes styling.
