If you put it in sport mode with traction off, it performs.

Review

I leased this car thinking that the plugs would last till at least 15,000 miles. Nope. It hit 6580 miles and the plugs are gone. According to the dealership they’re supposed to last till around 100,000 miles. Utter bs

2017 Nissan Sentra S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I had a new 17 Sentra 1.8 stick and had issues with the carpet always coming out from the plastic. No fix. The shifting was so jerking and rocked back before it went forward always it was crazy and never got better did notice sport mode made it better so something with programming.

Had a rattle from the timing chain tensioner from 500miles and nissan refused to fix it cause the other ones made the same sound even though the dealer stated it was a problem. Finally after it got louder then the new cars after 20k miles they put in a new motor and it still made the noise so I don't expect the motors to last with that issue. Also after 10k I started to hear a clunk everytime the motion changed. The dealer greased the half shafts from a service bulletin which fixed it but it's only a temp fix.
But if your persistence or wanna invoke the lemon law hopefully you can get out of it.

2017 Nissan Sentra SV 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Bought my Sentra over a year ago and, given the vehicle type and price range I was in, am glad I did. The SV has nicer cloth that looks much better than that in similar priced cars. Seats are comfy. Space is great for this style car. Friends who ride in the back have complimented the room and comfort. The steering wheel feels great, it has a nice information screen where the gauges are. The large bright white gauges appealed to me when I test drove the car and still do. The trunk is large. Ride is good enough and it brakes well. Gas mileage is great. Acceleration is awful and engine (or transmission, I am not sure) is very loud when pushed. The take for great gas mileage I guess and that's fine by me. The surprise downside is when there is a strong crosswind this car will get moved around when on the highway/interstate. Feels like the older model car experience...not in a good way. The surprise upside is the thinner tires, and maybe the brand of tire, allow it to navigate through snow so, so well! For the $16,400 I paid (out the door) for the car, overall, I can't ask for better.

Review

Some of you people are expecting Cadillac’s here. You bought a cheap car, it gets good mileage, and has decent space inside. It’s not a race car people
