Disappointed Sentra owner

2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 SL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


This car has been a huge disappointment for me. Any wind tends to blow it all over the road & it feels like I am wrestling a pickup or semi. The wind tends to suck the car sideways and blow it to the point that I have to turn the steering wheel 30 degrees off to hold it on the road on a day where the wind is 20 mph which sucks. Also on snowy days it tends to want to fishtail. Fuel economy is at best is 28 though typically 27 on the highway compared to my camry which got a solid 30. The seats are not comfy for anyone even slightly over weight as the location of the seat belts tends to jab, even 128lb daughter complains about it. Also the steering is very stiff.

Best Features

It's cute to look at and Nissan's supposed reliability is a plus.

Worst Features

Stablize the thing so it isn't such a work out to drive and how about some comfy seats. My husband's Vibe is easier to drive than this car is and sticks to the road a lot better. The steering is too stiff. I would not purchase it again and am looking to trade it in already
