If you're looking for a car that consumes little gas, and is easy to repair, look no further! The Sentra is my first car, and has been a joy to drive. Gets great mileage on the highway, with responsive steering and breaks. Nice stock audio system. Fairly nice ride in the front seats, but the back seats are rather cramped. However, there is plenty of trunk room to work with. Great car for a first time buyer!

I've owned this vechicle for at least 4 yrs. I have 173,000 miles on the car and hardly any troubles. Pros- Reliable, good on gas, easy to fix Cons - too little, terrible in the snow - sliding all over the road since there's no weight to it, very cheaply made vehicle,

It 'was' ok for just the driver & front passenger. But there is no way anyone but a small child can sit in the back seat, with their legs between that seat & the back of the front seats !! If I have a passenger in the badk, even a tiny person, "I" have to be right into the steering wheel, which puts your knees into the steering column. ~ It is thee noisiest car I've ever driven. The mechanics insist it's just the tires making the deafening whirrrrrring noise. it has lots of engine issues... Money all the time... Recently it "looses" power when having to speed up, I get to move into the "truck lane" going up hills. Yeh, I know,,,, more money... ~ ~ I really want my Chevy back...

The Car that empties your wallet

I purchased a 2000 Model Nissan Sentra GXE car a year ago and this is the worst ever car I have used in my life. Recently the car failed emission due to unresponsive catalytic convertor. To fix that issue it costs me 800 bucks. The reason is due to the dumbest design of the catalytic convertor as a single unit coupled to the exhaust system. So i have to replace the entire unit shelling out 700 bucks wherein for other cars it would cost only 350 bucks. I have already spent a lot on other minor issues the car developed in the past year. Inspite of fixing the issue and maintaining the car the resale value of this car is very less. I have used this car minimally and taken care of it properly. I cant say that this car is reliable but OK if your wallet is bulky.

The car isnt really that bad but since i bought it its had a problem that noone has been able to find. i know it cant be a bad part its more electrical when i first start the car before i can put in a gear i must wait about 1 min because if i move it in gear it will shake like crazy and the car will not advance at normal speed. I have had the transmission check out but thats not it. When plugged in computer says its the crank sensor i have replaced it 3 times and still does it. besides that the car work fines.

I am a second owner and it was a great car up until 120K or 13 years considering the previous owner changed the oil regularly but that was all he did. Whenever the check engine light would go off he would have the light turned off. I bought the car in 2010. To begin with all was well but last January (2014) I had a head gasket repair followed by radiator and springs, struts and bearings. Now it turns out the bearings are faulty and this is my 5th repair since January. I read some people get 190K out of this car but I'm not sure how right now.

Most reliable car I've ever owned

I bought this car new and it now has over 230,000 miles. It has a 2.0, 4 cyl. motor which I've been very impressed with the acceleration pick up. Just began to use a little oil and a little rattling of valves occasionally. By far the best and most reliable car I've had. Never wrecked it so the white paint looks great 17 years old. I'd recommend white in any car because sun does not impact white like it does other colors. I've really not been overly protective of it. Probably not been hand waxed but 5 or 6 times in 17 years. Just a spray wax at the car wash every time I run it through there. I sprayed scotch guard myself from a can when I first got it new and wipe up spills and spots with a baby wipe. My beige interior look almost new after 17 years and a few auto spray upholstery cleanings (the kind you buy in a can from the automotive store). On the downside the cheap plastic oil dipstick has broken 5 or 6 times and had to be replaced. It has had a popping noise in the stearing since about the time the warranty ran out. Was told it wasn't a dangerous thing from the dealer so I've never had it fixed and it hasn't went out on me YET. By the way this car ran perfectly until I had the valve cover and gasket replaced; then the rattling valves and using a little oil. I can't help but believe that something might have been dropped or adjusted when the repair was made at the dealer. (yes, 230,000 miles and I still had this done at the dealer.) Most of my work has been done at the dealer but after this I'm rethinking that.

I have owned this car for about four years. The check engine light was on since I got it, and I just don't have the money to fix it. I've got to say, she still runs fine and gets me everywhere I need to go. I'm actually very impressed with this car, and give her a little kiss whenever I go fast on the highway and need to thank her. Give this gal a little love and you'll be amazed what she'll so for you. I'd honestly say it's a great value for the money. Might not be the number one cutest car on the market, but for the year, not too shabby looking in my opinion either. This car has won my heart over the years.
