2010 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I bought my car two months ago NEW. The miles on the car was from test driving. This past Friday it wouldn't start. Long story short the car has a connector to the battery that gives it the propensity to receive a poor connection and shut down unexpectedly. Unfortunately, my car was towed by a Nissan Roadside assistance towing company to a Nissan dealership and in the process my $200 key was lost. I was approved to have my key paid for by the Nissan consumer affairs but I had to pay up front. I asked that an deferment of my monthly payment request be granted considering that I didn't budget for this and my NEW car broke down & individuals affiliated with NISSAN lost my key. I was denied!

2010 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Got this for my son's first car. I wanted something very safe. He cannot drive a manual so we looked at the Civic EX and Mazda 3 Sport. Was convinced that we would get the Mazda until we drove this. The Mazda may drive a little better but it was so small. I am 6'4 and could not get in or out of the back and even in the front, I felt like I was in a go cart. The Sentra is great! Roomy, fun to drive, paddle shifters and he is getting 26 MPG with no highway miles at all. Build quality is good and for the exact price of a base Mazda 3, he got the moon roof, Rockford Fosgate audio package with I- Pod adapter and back up cam. Now my wife wants one!


Favorite Features

Great little engine and a nice sounding exhaust. Lots of pick up and if you get tire of CVT, shift with the paddles.


Suggested Improvements

Spit folding rear seat. Better interior plastic. It scratches easily.

2010 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

First, let me say that this car was chosen after much deliberation. I compared and test drove over 5 competitor’s car before I made my decision. The final selection came down to the Honda Civic and the Sentra (no surprise as these are each others main competition). Final decision was the bottom line price. I purchased a 2010 Nissan Sentra SER in black out the door before tax, tag, or title for $17,500. The very best price on the most comparable Civic (Si model) was $21,700. That’s over 4K! Honda also decided not to offer their performance enhanced Si in an automatic so I even compared the “normal Civic to the SER and the best I could do on a comparable car was almost 2K more! I was impressed


Favorite Features

Compare the closest Civic price wise and the power, looks, features, wheels and tires, paddle shifters, sport seats, special air effects exterior kit, cool upgraded sportier interior, way more power and torque, uses regular unleaded with 177 HP vs. the civic Si 200HP premium unleaded, Sentra wins!


Suggested Improvements

The SER ate the Civic for breakfast in smoothness (lots of low end torque so I didn’t have to rev the beans out of the Sentra SER vs. the Civic) acceleration, seating comfort and visibility. If this review were one word it would have to be “VALUE”! Honda Civics are not hundreds but thousands over

Review

I had an 2007 Sentra SL and upgraded to the 2010 Sentra SER The steering is so much better, seats really hug you and getting 33mph on highway, not bad for this trim


Favorite Features

The rearview camera system, the instant power right from the start and the new radio interface


Suggested Improvements

Bluetooth on the SER model
