1997 Nissan Sentra 4dr Sedan


I bought the car new in '97, it has
67,000 miles, and it still is as
reliable as the first day I bought it.
The only thing that has failed (major
or minor) is the ingnition coil in my
distributor, which I was told is a
freak occurance in any car. The only
major drawback with this car is it's
lack of power which can get
frusterating when accelerating uphill
or passing cars.

Best Features

Great suspension - the perfect blend of sportyness without being jaring. Excellent manual transmision, Great fit and finish, Comfortable seats, Excellent ergonomics, Great reliability, And good gas mileage.

Worst Features

More powerful engine, Better cup holders - when used, the cups are in the way of my radio. Belts tend to squeal even when cleaned or replaced. I've been told by a Nissan mechanic that this is a common problem with Sentras.
