Vehicle2013 Nissan Sentra SR 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
ReviewI'll get right to my point.
I just purchased a 2013 Sentra SR.
Originally looking at Optima, Sonata, Altima and Accord.
Optima and Sonata don't come with spare tires??
I liked the Altima better to drive but ruled it our due to additional cost and size (fitting in my garage).
The Accord was just too boring.
I am a retired Toyota Salesperson.
I have driven most cars in this category at one time or another.
Was introduced to the Sentra by a neighbor.
Read every road test and drove a demo 3 times.
Every professional criticized the car for noise and acceleration.
In a 0-60 mph race the Sentra beat the Corolla and Civic.
The performance is about the same as the Corolla.
This car was a lease. Turned it in Feb. 2015 and leased the same car with similar options. After owning the 2013 for nearly 3 years it proved to be trouble free. The only problem encountered was related to a recall that recalibrated the transmission. Never ran the same or as good. My new 2015 is a better performing car. The mating of the engine and transmission response is far improved. Slightly better ride. Outstanding quality control in the build.

just picked up my nissan sentra sr 24 hours ago. just got back from enterprise due to my car not working. 83 miles on it only!! dealer was great though, is paying for tow and rental car with insurance. Still not happy! They say it is a fail safe issue but don't know why. I have owned 2 ford explorers for 18 years and never had an issue like this. regretting this decision already. already looking into lemon laws!!!Report it
