was good, now bad
By dee on


2001 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this car almost 4 years ago. Ran fine until the warranty came off, then suddenly started having problems. Note: if you hear loud humming when you do hard turns or in cold weather, do NOT let Nissan tell you that's "normal". I now have a power steering rack that is toast, and will cost $1100 Canadian to replace. Apparently, the humming was warning me there were problems, but the dealership told me there weren't, UNTIL the manufacturer's warranty came off. I had purchased the extended warranty, but guess what - they say it doesn't cover it either! It seems I am not alone - there are several reports of this problem, but Nissan just says, too bad, you bought it, we don't care.

Best Features

good gas mileage. OK style and handling.
