2005 Nissan Sentra Sedan 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had dozens of cars and this has been the best.
Purchased used with about 40,000 miles, now about 90,000.
Only repairs have been wearout items like tires, battery, etc.
Always starts.
Have the 5 speed stick shift and it has lots of power, even with the a/c on, which by the way, works very well.
Has power windows, power brakes, cd, a/c, cruise control, remote trunk and mirrors, just enough gadgets to be comfortable.
It's not a luxury car, but for an econobox, its really a great great car.

Update, still driving it after almost nine years.
Showing some wear, but always starts.
Goes great in snow and rain if you buy good tires.
Small repairs over the years, usual brakes, tires, battery.
One wheel bearing, alternator, emission stuff.
Engine still strong, does not burn a drop of oil.
Most repairs done at home, a few in the shop.

Its no Lexus, but will probably run at least a few more years.
Not much spent for repairs or to buy the car.

Review

Car is toast.
Kraft Nissan in Tallahassee just told me that the car is toast (engine is toast).
They said that they had replaced the head gasket and resealed it.
They blamed another company.
I checked out the other company, saw hardcopies of the service order, and the results.


I'm left with the following conclusions:


2005 Nissan Sentra engines don't last 10 years.
Kraft Nissan did a poor in their repair

What this tells me is that it is foolish to buy a Nissan in Tallahassee.
Bad cars and indifferent service.


Worst Features

Need better engines. Must be quality control.

Review

ive had nothing but problems with this car. The bumper randomly fell off, the cd player wont eject or take a cd, the visors wont stay up, battery went out after 6 months, blown head gasket, the passenger side windows wont roll down or if you get them down wont go back up, break light switch went out, check engine light wont go off...keeps saying cylinder 3 is misfiring and all the coils, plugs, injectors have all been replaced and STILL cant figure the problem out. This has all happened within the last year. And nissan has nothing to say about any of this. WORST CAR EVER!! i will never again buy nissan or recommend it to anyone. Not even your worse enemy deserves this pain in the ass.


Best Features

NOTHING!


Worst Features

Nissan needs to own up to this car having issues. Multiple people have had the same exact issues im having. Need to make a vehicle that is sturdy and reliable and actually worth the money. This is the shittiest car iv ever owned.

Review

Bought my 5 speed sentra sedan new and it has 81,000 miles on it.
A fun, peppy car to drive with good gas mileage.
Have not had one problem - have just changed oil frequently, one basic brake job, one new set of tires, one battery, and replaced all belts before a very long trip because the car had 60,000 miles on it and had never had a belt replaced - that's it
and it's been in the massachusetts winters.
Starts first time every time - best car value that I have ever had bar none.
Enjoy!

Review

This is my very first car, got it from a dealership used and with roughly 116,000 miles on it. I had the car for maybe a week and it started giving me trouble when I started it. It could sit for up to 5 or more hours and start fine but if it sat for 1 or 2 hours it would take 2 or 3 tries to get it to start up! Replaced the battery...wasn't it...replaced a battery cable...wasn't it. Finally got the fuel pump replaced...works great every since then! Only down fall was the price..$550 to replace! Other than this, I love the car and is great for a first car, small and rides great! Just make sure you have it looked over by a mechanic before you make your purchase(: hope this helps!
