German drivability; Japanese reliability

2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 SL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
Purchased this car recently and I am very satisfied. Test drove a Honda Fit and a Civic, and after I test drove a Versa - it beat them both, however I wasn't satisfied with the amount of room so I stepped up to the Sentra. It drove the same as the Versa and was as comfortable as the Civic... all with a better price tag. Great bachelor car if you're looking for a roomy sedan that handles like a BMW. Its performance speaks for itself.
Keyless operation for anything. Bluetooth. Aux input for iPod.
More powerful audio system - then again, I'm used to having 10" speakers in the back.
