2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
After a month of diligent research, my wife and I decided on the Nissan Sentra S Model. We test drove the Civic, Jetta, Corolla. Although this is an "economy" car, you would never know it with all of the wonderful and useful features that it has. For starters, the design is really nice and modern. The glove compartment is huge, by far the largest of any car we test drove. The LCD display screen and on board computer is really neat and displays some useful information (average mpg, average speed, temperature, time, etc.). The fit and finish of the car is superb and really has a solid feel to it. The CVT is so smooth and really beats traditional transmissions in my opinion.
Great gas mileage averaged, 26 MPG on first tank, 90% city driving. Driver seat has height adjustment, great stereo system and aux input. Cool styling.
