2002 Nissan Sentra GXE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I love Nissan.Leased a 98 before
buying.Had problems from day 1.The
inside is often noisy,the rattles vary
in volume,frequency and location. The
cruise is intermittent & they can't
find the problem.It works on restart
but is a concern.A rear speaker has
blown repeatedly w/o resolve.Also
the entry remotes work off/on.
Otherwise, the car is great.Their lack
of competency & empathy is
disappointing.If resolved,I'd have
bought another Nissan.The fact
that I've had problems in a new
car over 2 years, makes it hard to
trust Nissan. Would like to know if
others are having this happen, Nissan
says no.

Best Features

The headroom & interior design are super. The front seats are comfortable & adjustments great.The radio area is convenient and simple to operate. Seatbelts are well placed & comfortable. Like the reliability & performance.

Worst Features

The cruise needs help.The trunk frame makes it hard to get items in.A hatchback is best.The cupholders are bad.Used to be open,allowing cups to sit in securely.Quality checks should be improved for EVERY car so people don't end up with poor 1's.Better backseat leg room in the 98.
