1997 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan


I got this car when I was 17 after my car was totaled an accident. I always thought it was a good car as a teenager but after my husband & I slowly got new cars, the Sentra ended up just sitting for about a year. My newer car bit the dust after 7 months of a 100 mile round trip commute every day. My husband & I got the Sentra tuned up & it is as good as new (with 167,000 mi)! We did have to do some regular repairs while we drove it in the early 2000s, with one repair costing approx. $600. However, the car is a gem that is well worth doing a few minor repairs to in order to avoid a car payment while we save up for a new one. I would definitely buy another Nissan, no doubt about it.

Best Features

Reliability, Gas Mileage, Suffered thousands of long trips and big city traffic with no problems

Worst Features

Is definitely small- my husband has trouble being comfortable in it, move cup holders to new location
