1999 Nissan Sentra XE 4dr Sedan


I bought this car brand new in 1999. A few annoying problems appeared while using it. First, my horn would go off without any warning while I was making sharp turns (especially, on very hot days). Second, I had to change brake drums after 5 years of driving it (my Toyota after 9 years did not have her brake drums changed yet). Third, some exhaust sensor broke down, and my orange Maintenance light would be constantly on. I did not fix it, since it would cost me money and wasn't critical to driving. So I'm pretty disappointed with the car overall. Frankly, I'll never buy a Nissan again. On a positive side, I had a really major car accident with a tractor trailer and I lived, so it's a safe car

Best Features

A manual transmission has a good acceleration for engine's horse power. I could always overtake all of the cars starting from a full stop, except the sporty cars obviously.
