I bought my 2006 Sentra in 2008 with 32000 miles. I have kept the oil changed and routine maintenance up to date and am still very happy with this car. I live in NC but have taken this car all the way from Northern Maine in the winter (-36 degrees) to Miami Florida in the summer. It now has 178,000 miles on it and I have not had any major mechanical problems. I will drive it until I can't drive it any more! Then, I will get another one!

I purchased a new 1.8L Special Edition Sentra. I maintain all my vehicles meticulously. I drove it for 100K miles and gave it to my teenage daughter for school commutes, I purchased a 2006 because it was the last year of that model. I never buy first or second year model changes, The 2006 has a different intake that inceases horse power over the earlier model runs. This car gets 30 mpg city & 35 mpg highway. I once saw 39 mpg, but really worked on my coastings to acheive it. I do think 40 mpg is possible in light traffic.

2006 1.8S Special Edition

46,000 Miles not one service issue I've driven Nissans for years (6 in the 16 years, All purchased new)and this is the only one that has been problem free. Mind you the others have not been nightmares in fact the issues were minimal. It is the least expensive car I have owned in years but the value is strong. Long equipment list, lacking only a couple items that were on my '03 Altima. I bought this car before I retired from the Air Force as an interim vehicle, maybe 2 years tops. I've found no reason to replace it and after almost 4 years I really have no clock on replacing it. I take care of it, it takes care of me. It's not fast but it's not supposed to be. It gets good mileage. The styling while not cutting edge exiting has the advantage that Vanilla styling has always had, I doesn't become dated real quickly. The interior is simple but usably laid out, one note, the Cup holder blocks access to the 6 disc changer. I listen to music louder that my 20 year old son and the 350watt system has never disappointed, It won't thump base two blocks away but it has plenty inside the car. It is not a boulevard prowler pouncing on lesser creatures but that not it's intent. It is a compact efficient family car designed for reasonable comfort, good mileage, and reliability and that it does very well.

I purchased this car in 2007 used. It had 29000 miles on it. I've been driving it since and it has 67250 miles on it. Never took it to a shop, never broke done, haven't lost power. It's a good car I drive really fast and i've done 112 miles per hour in it. It's good on gas also especially if you do a lot of highway driving. If you are for a roomy quick nice looking sedan for around 5000-6000 dollar sentras are good cars.

This is my third Nissan .. I always loved the stainless steel exhaust and easy oil change. I purchased the Sentra over the Corolla because the Corolla interior looked cheap. I passed on the Civic because I found the digital speed display really annoying. But mainly, I chose the Sentra because I got more power and a great deal. In 5 years, I experienced no problems, no squeaks or rattles, and the gas mileage is still great. The only negative is the rear seating is tight, but adults still could fit back there ok.

06 nissan sentra is a great car. I highly recommend it to whoever is looking for a used car. It gets ok gas milage, If you drive with normal you can get around 35 miles per gallon. It runs pretty well. I haven't had any problems with it other than the fuel pump that needs to be replaced. I've had it for 3 years now and haven't gone to shop even once.

Well this is my first car and im proud to say it is very good! For a little car it does got some get up. I've had the car for one year right now and the only problem i have had so far is the subwoofer going out and the cup holders in the front should be coin holders because that is all that it can do! The car is easy to dent so be careful of what you do (do not let anyone even a toddler lean on the car!!) But for a start off car you will enjoy it!

I love this car. My only problem with it so far has been its fuel economy. Its getting 27 Miles to the gallon right now and in todays society you've got to be getting in the 30's to atleast be acceptable. Other then that the comfort is terrific and the speed is actually excellent for a 4 cylander and i'm used to driving V6 Nissan Maximas (driven them my whole life). Anyways I highly recommend the Nissan Sentra.
