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


Review

This Sentra has been towed to the shop 7 times, starting at 5000 miles. The throttle sensor went bad 3 times, finally requiring a complete ECM, throttle body, and wiring harness. Then at 35000 miles it started blowing the ECM fuse. It has been very intermittent, now it is getting another ECM and a complete wiring harness and dash electronics. I'm not sure what the instrument panel has to do with the problem, but just today Nissan agreed to cover it under warranty even tho the car has 40000 miles on it. The initial repair was around $2000, this estimate is $2700. Very expensive for a $15k car. Needless to say, this will be my last Nissan.


Best Features

Basic 4dr sedan, looks good, reasonable cost for all the features.


Worst Features

Better reliability.

Review

I just got this car but it's way better then what I traded in for it. It is very comfortable. I love the hood of the car. The only complaint I have is that the tail end of the car doesn't really have any shape. So I'm gonna put a spoiler on it. The gas mileage is good and over all I'm very happy with my selection.


Best Features

The hood and the interior.


Worst Features

Make the tail end have more body to it.

Review

Oil it, gas it and step on it - this car requires little attention and will surpass all others in its class. Try one out and see.


Best Features

Good gas mileage, and the way it handles on the road. The car cruises well at 75 mph and is very smooth.


Worst Features

Beverage holder area need more room away from the cd player.

Review

I LOVE my car. It hauls and is fun to race around in. However, my keyless entry went out 30000 miles ago. Now my car feels like I have a flat. Before that my window creaked in the up position. Pros: She can go 50000+ miles without a tune up, she stops on a dime, I like the cupholder position, the brakes are still brand new and it has 60000 miles on it with the original brakes. Overall, I would NEVER trade my car for the world. I love her. (My car is a she.)


Best Features

Brakes, stereo, cupholders, engine, everything!


Worst Features

Make the keyless entry remotes last longer!

I am a courier that drives 300 miles a day on route. I have put 104,000 miles on the car in a little over a year (it now has 117,000). I have never had any problem with the car! It still runs like new.


Best Features

I can average 36-38 mpg, very reliable.


Worst Features

seat comfort, trunk design
