1991 Nissan Sentra XE 4dr Sedan


Review

My plain Jane Sentra is comfortable, fun to drive, always starts, gets good mileage, and is inexpensive to maintain. It has over 194,000 miles on it and has NEVER let me down. Talk about a car that "takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'--this one can't be beat!


Best Features

Good visibility and easy to drive


Worst Features

Better exterior styling. Car looks like a "box on wheels."

1991 Nissan Sentra SE 2dr Coupe


Review

When I first bought the car, I thought hey, saves gas, and it's cheap. But what I did not know was the problems I would encounter. I have tremendous issues with the starter that I had to fix twice, I changed the leaking radiator, my car got too hot so bought another thermostat, new rear shocks, replaced the 5 speed transmission, and to top it all off, my car is leaking oil and I once again am having problems with my new, used transmission I supposedly just replaced. It pops out of fifth gear.


Best Features

Saves gas.

I love this little car. Sure it's underpowered. Sure it's old. But it goes.

Ice cold air. Comfy seats.


Worst Features

Smoother throttle response.

1991 Nissan Sentra SE-R 2dr Coupe


Review

Cars like this come around once in a decade. It's just the right blend of practicality and performance that earned it a place in Car & Driver's 10 Best list all 4 years it was produced. It's quick, it's nimble, it's nearly indestructable (15 years and all I've replaced is tires, brakes, clutches, and one alternator). Hat's off to Nissan for the perfect blend.


Best Features

Strong engine, light weight (2400 pounds - compare to todays heavyweights!), good suspension, slick shifter. Performace is the highlight in the SE-R models.


Worst Features

More comfortable front and rear seating. Some of the HVAC controls are a little on the cheap side. What do you want out of a 15 year old car?
