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


This car looked great on the lot and was a good test drive in warm/dry weather. The CVT was wonderful, but that's where the positives end. In windy weather or passing transports the car is buffetted horribly and handling in snowy or icy conditions is extremely poor. If I lived in a warm weather locale, perhaps my experience would be better. We are presently upgrading to an Altima as my wife doesn't feel safe driving our Sentra over long distances or on major highways. We are both experienced compact car drivers and this Sentra has been a horrible disappointment.

Best Features

Good looking car, very comfortable interior.

Worst Features

Better stability, options packages should be more user friendly, stock tires are not very good.
