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


I bought this car in September so I haven't had it that long but I have put almost 3000 miles on it driving 14-16 hours on long trips every weekend. I am impressed with the way it drives, feels and the design of the whole car. It has a huge trunk. The gas mileage is good when you don't give it a lot of gas and don't have a lot of people or luggage in the car. I get about 36-40 mpg highway at 75 mph. I don't like the rough downshifting and the whine the engine makes. (almost sounds like a turbo.) the CVT takes some getting used to as if you are on the gas, it won't shift

Best Features

i like the continuously variable transmission for the added power. i love the climate controls and the stereo is very decent. i hate that it doesn't have cruise on my model. (i think that is rather cheap of Nissan) but i love nissans and i had a 200sx but i like my sentra even though it is bland

Worst Features

cruise control. 4 wheel abs. more features on stock models! it is like a rental.
