I bought an Altima 2.5 SL last month and absolutely found this to be a joy to drive. I didn't want to buy another Altima but I was surely sold on Nissan so I bought a Sentra. I enjoy driving this as much as the Altima. I would sincerely like to offer a word to a new car looker, buy one of these cars. You will be pleasantly surprised. I came real close to buy a Honda Accord, but found that the pricing and quality are far superior in the Nissan. I didn't even give the Civic a look see.
The handling and the gas mileage were the most important factors in buying this car. The Sentra was priced right and I feel I got a fair deal at Nissan of easton, PA. The salesman, made it a sure pleasure and to see the professionalism from him an the dealership was exceptional.
Cruise Control on all models. Phone should be a standard option.
