It’s a great car never have had to do anything major to it! It’s has the spoiler on the back so has the sporty look! Back seat not a lot of room especially if you have a car seat like I do for my grandson. But over all nice ride. I’ve loved it!
Bought brand new and religiously followed all maintenance schedule. Apart from regular oil/filter, hose, tires, belts, following are the additional repairs. At about 30k miles, the read left window glass motor/mechanism failed. At about 55k, the engine head gasket failed with coolant consumption (dealership took $1300 to repair), this is a known issue with Nissan Sentra 2005 1.8L but company never recalled, search for the complaints on this issue on https://www.usa.gov/car-complaints). At about 80k, the spark plugs failed and were changed. At about 100k, the engine started to burn oil (about 1 quart every 1200 miles). At about 105k, the alternator failed (dealership charged $700 to fix). At about 115k, the crank shaft position sensor failed (dealership quoted about $400). Decided to replace this car with a Toyota/Honda due to the reliability and repair issue with Nissan. Never am going to recommend a Nissan.
Had mine 8 years. Good car, always starts. 108,000 miles, so far normal brakes, tires, belts, hoses, maintenance, one alternator, some emission repairs, receiver for remote entry, trunk latch. Not much really for the miles and usage. Good gas mileage and good acceleration.
Still good. No oil leaks, no fluid leaks, very reliable. With snow tires it goes through several inches of snow very well.
I bought my SE-R new in 2004 it now has 240k miles on it and is still fast and super fun to drive. I have done nothing but routine maintenance with my biggest repair being tie rod ends. I did a lot of highway driving but 240k with ice cold ac and everything works fine is very impressive. Im looking to put 300k on this car. My last nissan uad 279k
