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


Purchased new in '05, 1.8s with the Special Edition package (a must!). Rides great, awesome stereo, great on trips, but performance with the A/T leaves a little to be desired. If you need more get up and go, get the 5 spd or drop the coin on one of the SE-Rs. Original tire size is an odd ball but you can step up a width and there are more options. This model Sentra (B15) is know for two issues, the Vapor Canister Purge Valve- easy to change in the driveway but cost $100 and the fuel pump has some valve that stops working and causes hard starting... just turn the key to on for a few seconds- once the pump primes it starts fine.

Best Features

Stereo! The stereo, amp and sub enclosure are actually made by Clarion. Rockford Fosgate is only responsible for the sub. SE has SE-R look alike features (seats, grill, wheels, spoiler). Comfortable and handles great! Enjoyable to drive and MPG is awesome... 31/37, seen as high as 41.

Worst Features

Sluggish with A/T, cup holder size and location blocks 6 disc CD changer.
