Good basic transportation with suspension issues
By vtgeoboy on


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


I bought a used 2008 Sentra with about 60k miles.
Overall it is a good car, very spacious interior, and good gas mileage (35 mpg on highway).
However, there have been suspension issues.
As you can see on some Nissan owners' forums, the rear wheels are permanently
out of alignment.
This is an easy fix - a tire shop can install a shim kit.
If you don't do that, you will burn through tires. Soon after that, one of the front wheel bearings started making a loud rumbling.
That was replaced, but the ABS sensor was rusted into the hub and had to be replaced - ABS sensor is $200.
Fuel filler door stopped working - plastic cable end broke.

Best Features

Lots of interior space compared to competitors, particularly in the rear seat. good gas mileage, engine and CVT transmission work well. Generally quiet although the CVT can make a clicking sound.

Worst Features

Reliability and general comfort of suspension
