Fix the AC system!
By Henrygrc on


2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


My complaint is the A/C
system. When "defrost" is
selcted the A/C compressor starts
working as it should with the A/C
switch off. However when I switch the
Mode Control Knob back to the dash
wents, the A/C ramains on(with the A/C
switch off),the compressor keeps
cycling and it is impossible to turn
it off unless the vehicle is
restarted. Nissan issued a service
bulletin HA03-002 NTSB03-065 advising
that this is a "normal" condition. How
is it normal when you have to stop and
restart you car in order to turn your
A/C off? Looks like not too many
people noticed this and Nissan wont
issue a recall unless there is more

Best Features

Fun city vehicle

Worst Features

Paint quality is poor, I drive on paved roads, 30%city and 70%hwy and the front of my car needs to be repained already because of "stone chips" -Fuel economy could be better, I average 29mpg or 9.5 l/km Veh. has too much torque steer rear heat needs to be much more efficient
