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


OK it looks nice. Here is a run down, ride home from dealership, TPMS came on, would not go off even though tires properly inflated. Returned to dealer, had to schedule appointment & wait & wait. Purchased replacement parts on line, it was faster than waiting in the lobby all day. Still not able to break 24 MPG even though I drive 75% uninterrupted highway miles every day. Estimated 33 MPG is just that, an estimate -"your cars mileage may vary, we cannot guarantee that you will get the stated performance." Also the car 'lags' in the 25-35 mph range when accelerating like you suddenly started towing something behind your car.

Best Features

The color is nice. The door openings are nice. It is not an overall bad looking car, and the trunk space is quite large.

Worst Features

Display accurate MPG on car listing, remove the TPMS, get rid of the lag where 3rd gear should be on the CVT. Use better headlights from manufacturer (forgot had to replace my right front 2 weeks into owning).
