After testing several cars including the Corolla, Focus and Mazda 3, the Sentra was the best choice. The interior room is as big or bigger than my 2003 Dodge Stratus. This is the perfect choice in a bad economy with insane gas prices. I beleive the Sentra will be the next smart size family sedan replacing midsize cars, which are quickly become todays gas guzzlers.
The Sentra is quiet and super comfortable, I do not miss midsize cars now at all. What a tremendous improvement for Nissan over the old smaller Sentra I owned in the 1995.
The higher than normal height and boxy back end causes some noticeable wind noise and slight stability issues on the highway on windy days.
