1996 Nissan Sentra XE 4dr Sedan


Mine's a stripper model, power nothing,
5spd. I'm not really attached to it. It
has an ok amount of power, but you have
to work to drive it fast. Handling
again is alright, but nothing to brag
about. Sryling again, nothing to brag
about. The interior, boring and basic,
well designed and built, but basic. I
guess the only bragging rights this car
has is an EPA rating of 30/40mpg
(personally I average 30mpg over mostly
city driving). Anyway, to be honest, I
wish I had gotten a Honda Civic - they
seem to have a little more character.
The Sentra is a fine car - it's just
boring, that's all.

Best Features

mileage, reliability

Worst Features

gimme a double-wishbone suspension (instead of a beam axle) and a variable valve timing engine tuned for more power than mileage
