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


I bought the Sentra 1.8 Special in April because I got married and needed a good gas mileage vehicle for my upcoming communte. So far, I am sorely disappointed with the car. I have had it in the shop now 5 times in 5 months. To me, I did not get my money's worth at all. I traded a Ford for this vehicle and I am soon to be trading back into a Ford. The biggest problems that I have with the car are the lack of power (especially going uphill), the loose bumpers, and the loud exhaust, and the gripping brakes and roaring rear axle. I thought I was getting a good car, being my first import, but boy was I wrong. I am going back to my Ford ASAP!!!

Best Features

Gas mileage(though not what was advertised on the sticker), Sound System is great, headroom (i am 6'2" and comfortable)

Worst Features

tighten bumpers, quite exhaust, make sure axles don't roar, stop brake gripping, better ratios for 4 speed automatic
