At 30,000 miles the remote entry module went out. It's got just under 50k, and it's going out again. The day we bought the car, the passenger front window seal flipped and had to be replaced. The driver's window made a very loud cracking noise when the window was rolled all the way up, and the regulator mount had to be welded to cure this, at 15k, and it's starting again. It's only had mobile 1 since new, but quite often suffers from lifter noise. I trust this car very little, and I think the experts agree. That's what leads to very low resell value. If I could squeeze this car, I'd get lemonade.
Accessory input on stereo that my wife has a cassette connected to
Build it better, in every aspect. This car replaced a Hyundai Accent. The Accent was a better car, even at 90,000 miles, and it was no peach! Also, with the special edition stereo, every time we use the cup holder, the cup hits the cd select, changing the stereo.
we have owned 23 Nissans, 18 have been Sentras. We currently also own a 2006 Corolla. The Sentra is more stable on the road and slightly better in mpg. Maintenance costs are very low. Note factory tires hold up better than the oe tires on the Corolla as well.
reliability, stability and mpg. I have had the misfortune to have our family involved in 6 accidents over the years. Thanksfully, the Sentra's collapsibility to absorb impact has minimized our injuries.
Sleeker outside style. Widen distance between driver's right side and console Different seat material option: The vibe (we own as well) has a highly washable, gortex type of material.
Drove my '93 Sentra XE for 227K with no repairs other than routine maint. Sold it (was running great) to a young lady with confidence. Bought a '00 Altima and sold it to my parents with confidence. Bought an '01 Villager (Quest) sold it to my parents with confidence and they still own it and love it. Tried larger cars of other makes and I finally came back to the Sentra when gas hit 2.89 a gallon. Love the fuel economy, price and reliability. Go Nissan!!!
This car has all the items of a high end car on a budget. I bought the '05 1.8S Special Edition. Little more sport for the money.
