Major Issues After 60k - Lemon
By AtlGirl3929 on


2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I bought a Nissan thinking the brand was on par with Honda and Toyota...boy, was I wrong. I have never had as many problems with an automobile as I have with this car. When it was still under warranty, I had minor issues. Past 65k...I've had the A/C break twice, normal issues, but the best are the well documented problems with the catalytic converter, pre-cat, and 'recall' Nissan claims they performed on the 02 2.5L engines of this model. Bottom line: Nissan lies, the pre-cat never gets fixed, will fall apart, get sucked into your engine in small bits, mingle with your oil, and slowly eat your engine from the inside out. STAY AWAY!!

Best Features

Can be fun to drive, great pickup, turn radius, etc.

Worst Features

Uh. How about Nissan not knowingly selling the consumer a vehicle with $2k a year + problems after 60k miles?
