2004 Nissan Sentra Sedan 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've had bad experiences with cars, and
so far this is a winner. I love the
way it handles, except they need to
make the body a little heavier(those
windy days watch out) im all over the
road. The audio is good for
manufactured speakers.


Best Features

audio, exterior


Worst Features

the interior needs to be expanded just a little bit, when my husband drives my children have No leg room in the back seat.

Review

SO FAR I HAVE HAD THIS CAR FOR 4 MONTHS
AND I HAVE HAD TO TAKE IT IN FOR
MEACHANICAL PROBLEMS 3 TIMES NOW. I
WILL HAVE TO REPLACE THE FRONT AXEL
BECAUSE IT IS CROOKED WARPS THE ROTERS
AND BRAKES AFTER 1000 MILES. THIS CAR
WAS BOUGHT BRAND NEW AND NEVER IN AN
ACCIDENT. FOR ALL THE CARS I HAVE
BOUGHT USED AND THEN BUY THIS ONE NEW
BECAUSE I DIDNOT WANT ANY MALFUNCTIONS
WHILE I AM ABOUT TO HAVE A BABY, BUT I
BELEIVE THAT I WILL NEVER BUY A NEW CAR
AGAIN! THE FUEL IS NOT THAT GREAT, IT
IS BETTER THAN MY TRUCK BUT IT IS NOT
AS GOOD AS MOST OTHER 4 CYL.


Best Features

I LOVE THE FACT THAT THE SEATS FOLD DOWN IN THE BACK BUT YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE TRUNK TO GET THEM DOWN. I LOVE THE EXTRA LITTLE GLOVE BOX THING THAT IT HAS ON THE DASH! IT HAS BEEN A REAL LIFE SAVER!


Worst Features

QUIT SELLING THE CAR WOULD BE A START.

Review

I owned a 1994 Sentra, drove it 10
years, great car. Bought a new 2004
Sentra1.8s. The quality has decreased in
this model compared to my old Sentra.
I've had to add power steering fluid
since it was new and after switching
from defrost to vent the AC stays on.
Dealership is replacing part for power
steering problem and they say Nissan is
aware of the AC problem and haven't come
up with a solution yet. In the meantime
I am burning extra fuel. the AC will
cut off after restarting the engine. I
expected a little more fuel mileage but
I am happy with the power and automatic
transmission.


Best Features

CD/Stero system. Large trunk. Console arrangement.

Review

Just bought the car on 9/18/04 and got
a super deal. I checked out the Civic
and Corolla. What is all the hype about
the Civic and Corolla? Yes, they are
both great reliable cars but so is the
Sentra. Why does the Sentra always get
the "bum" reviews. I read that Consumer
Report does not "Recommend" the Sentra
because it is below average in
reliability. I find that very hard to
believe. Where are they getting this
information? A couple of my friends
have Sentra's with nearly 100,000 miles
on them and they have had little or no
problems with them. The build quality
on my Sentra is top notch, comparable
to that of a Civic if possibly not
better.


Best Features

Smooth shifting transmission, refined engine. Steering is precise and responsive. I love the sound my car makes when you shut the door and you get a solid "thug", without any raddles or squeaks. If you are considering the Corolla or Civic be sure to check out the Sentra.


Worst Features

I really can't think of any. It is an Excellent little car and I mean that in every aspect.
