2012 Nissan Sentra 2.0 SR 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
Before you search all the other popular models - test drive and price the Nissan Sentra.
Can't believe the amount of features for the price I paid.
Also proven reliabilty vs. the Focus or Cruze.
Great featurs such as I-pod connection, Alloy Wheels, Steering Wheel Radio Controls, etc.
Drive mostly highway with some rush hour traffic and I am averaging almost 36 MPG.
Some complain about the CVT, but it is better than the low end torque of the others.
Overall great car for the price if your looking for a base commuter car with excellent reliabilty and a smooth ride.
I-pod connection hidden in armrest controlled thru radio, steering wheel radio controls, cruise control, great MPG, alloy wheels, mud flaps, adjustable cup holder, smooth highway ride.
