2002 Nissan Sentra Sedan GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

i love my 2002 Nissan Sentra. I am the first owner and in 8 years i have not even had one problem. The car has 120,000 km on it.It burns so little gas. It is fast and powerful and very reliable. This year i am planing to buy a new 2010 nissian sentra. I also love the way the car looks with a spoiler. I have never had a better car. I've had a Ford Fairlane and a Ford Thunderbird. This car is the best, I even pull a small trailer.

2002 Nissan Sentra Sedan GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Passed 150,000kms this week. Nothing has gone wrong with this car in nine years of continuous operation. While regular maintenance has helped, I'm astonished that I have done nothing but tires, oil changes, brake pads and a new oil dipstick the entire time. Nissan has been quick about recalls - the throttle issues seem limited to those who fail to heed the recalls. I don't baby the car at all - cars are meant to be driven. It's been on dirt roads to cottage country and through nine Canadian winters with salted roads without rust (save for one muffler bracket which was replaced for $60). While the design is showing its age and it's no luxury car, I am very impressed overall.


Best Features

Light weight and good gearing make the most of the modest engine. Very peppy around town. Simple design makes a dependable and easy-to-drive car year in and year out. Fuel economy is fine for compact car, but not class leading. Nissan engineering quality is amazing overall, even if not flashy.


Worst Features

Suspension is skittish and punishing on rough roads. Four speed auto drones at highway speed. Design is very conservative and economy-minded, but holds up well over time. Expensive custom faceplate needed to change stereo. For the vintage, an excellent vehicle overall, however, and good value.

Review

Bought this Sentra, my first car, certified-used at a dealer. Aside from the fact that I paid way too much for it because of the financing, this is a solid car! Don't let anyone tell you it's bottom of the line! Not a whole ton of horsepower but it gets it done. Gave me no problems until just before 100K, then a couple little things popped up. (Spark plugs, fuel flush, nothing you can't do yourself) I drove this car everywhere. Florida and Canada were no problem! Kept up with oil changes and changed the brakes once. She never failed me. Got totaled just before Halloween, she might be the best car I'll ever have!


Best Features

Everything.


Worst Features

Make it a little less bland-looking.

Review

I bought my sentra with 22,000 miles on it when it was two years old.It was just in an accident and she was totaled (and I walked away unscathed) but I miss having it, I should buy another one! This is an extremely reliable car, and would suggest it to anyone!


Best Features

The body style is cute and the size of the car makes it easy to whip around in.


Worst Features

I found that it didn't do to well in the snow.
