2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


I bought this car used with 70,000 miles on it. About 2 weeks after I got it, my service engine light came on. Nothing happened for months. Around month 5 the CD player won't spit my CD out, & won't suck them in. After about 6 months, my car started randomly dying while I was doing 70 on freeways, which was a big inconvenience since I drive around 60 miles on the highway a day. Changed the crankshaft position sensor, which was relatively cheap, I guess. This car doesn't stand well in wrecks. I hit a light pole going about 5mph & the back bumper just fell off. I feel that I'm paying far too much for far too little. Not worth it, can't wait to get a new car.

Best Features

Aux cable (since the CD player crapped out), still gets me from A to B, good gas mileage.

Worst Features

Fix the head gasket problem. I'm just WAITING for mine to blow. Fix the CD player, while you're at it. This is ridiculous.
