2011 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


Have about 2200 miles on it.
Have been very impressed with thoughtful design (large trunk, ample rear seat room, large glove box).
Seats are comfortable.
I really like the tight, solid body, with no squeaks or rattles.
Excellent gas mileage (38-39 mpg on highway at 65-70 mph).
No wind noise, and quiet on the highway.
Excellent build quality - doors have a quality "thunk" on closing.
Nice dash lighting.
I enjoy the trip computer, but wish it had a compass.
The CVT transmission takes some getting used to, but it's OK.
Ride is firm (reviewers say "harsh" over bumps, but I don't find it objectionable.
All in all, a quality product I'd recommend.

Best Features

Smooth, refined engine, good gas mileage, excellent build quality, nice styling, excellent build quality with no squeaks or rattles. Much better than my 2005 Toyota Corolla, which had many dash rattles (6 trips to dealer to correct). At highway speed it's surprisingly quiet, with no wind noise and very little road noise.

Worst Features

Put a compass in the trip computer. Exterior mirrors are very small, and that has safety implications.
