2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 SL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


Had good experience with previous Nissans, so felt comfortable with the Sentra. Was looking for economy, as my Titan is a great truck, but lousy commuter vehicle. The Sentra is my first 4 cylinder car in 20 years, and is surprisingly fun to own and drive. Gas mileage beats the EPA numbers - all city driving gives me about 27 mpg, and a recent trip across the PA turnpike produced 36 mpg. Let's face it, this is basically an entry level car, but loaded with many features. Just about all of my passengers are impressed with the performance of the engine, and the smoothness of the transmission. This car has everything - good styling, great economy, and expected Nissan quality. No probs so far

Best Features

CVT trans. XM radio. Intelligent Key. Divide and Hide trunk. Performance and economy of engine. Styling, both interior, and exterior.

Worst Features

Nothing, really. But to nit-pick, I'd like to have auto headlamps, and heated mirrors. A little smoother ride. At 6'2", a tad more leg room would be nice, and a telescoping steering wheel would help. Anything else I would like, well, I'll just buy an Altima or Maxima!
