2004 Nissan Sentra 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I already have a new car, but started a new job and drive 43 miles one way. So I bought a 2004 Sentra with 55,800 miles on it to keep the miles off the new one and thought it would be a great car. Well, the mileage is great, 25 mpg city/37 mpg hwy. Great for an automatic. I have had to have quite a few things replaced, as it was a repo. I only paid 5400 for the car, but have had to replace gas tank seal, alternator belt/pulley, crankshaft & camshaft sensors, and had to order dye for the carpet & upholstery (special order), as I am trying to make the car look as nice as possible. I just hope I won't have to replace anything for a while. I did manage to drive about 2000 miles before the sensors were replaced.

Best Features

Gas mileage, open engine bay, quiet engine

Worst Features

Better seat materials, get rid of the"turn the engine to the run position, count to five, then start" syndrome, squealing brakes.
