2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
Bought this car new for practical reasons (not a 4 door sedan type person), and overall a decent car. Smoothest engine I've ever heard, bar none! CVT transmission works well and gas mileage averaged over 30 mpg. But overall a pretty boring drive. Handling is average, driver's seat too soft and lacks lumbar support, sun visor hits mirror when lowered, (bumper cover popped off, panels don't align well).
SMOOTH engine, gas mileage, CVT transmission, nice trunk space, nice standard sound system.
Overall poor build quality, sun visors are aggravating, armrest is useless. O.k. I guess for a small sedan, but traded after 5 mos. for a Mazda MX-5 convertible... more my kind of ride!
