Back in 1995 just married and new child
this car came at the perfect time. It
delivered fuel economy, comfort and four
doors for baby. I've been a fan of
Japanese dependability and this car has
been a main stay in our family now for
almost 10 years. I drive in heavy
traffic daily around 80 miles. This
Sentra has the pep to hit the passing
lane with no fear. Last checked I was
getting 38.5 MPG with 190,000 miles on
my workhorse. There is not the space of
our minivan but for a small family in
moderate shape we fit comfortably in
this car for small trips.
Fuel economy and ride.
Cup holder in bad spot, it sticks into
my leg when employed. Oil filter in
tough spot for this shade tree mechanic.
Overhead dome light has given
Bought my Nissan new as a commuter.
Went through two Saabs, two fords, and
a Nissan pickup as my second car during
the past 8 years - but the Sentra has
been all but perfect. NO NONE ZERO
repairs in 165,000 miles! Timing chain
means no expensive belt replacements.
Just tires, oil, couple of sets of
break pads, and thats it. Aircon still
cool, seats survived my children, can't
say enough good things.
Power locks, windows, cruise control
all standard on the 1994.5 models.
I had 98000 miles before I had any
major work done. and then I had to
replace the clutch. yes, 98000 miles on
one clutch. this is the most reliable,
fun to drive little car. Great value
for the price of this gem
the price! we were on a budget and
purchased this car. but it was fun to
drive and reliable and easy on gas! We
still have it, 10 yrs old and 180,000
This car is very reliable, I bought it in
99 and it has been very good to me
ever since,we are getting a new car
in February, but guess what? I love
my Sentra so much that we are
keeping her and having two cars!
