I Love My Sentra!

I bought my Sentra used with 35,000 miles and it drives like it is brand new. The CVT is so smooth, you don't even feel when the car shifts. The interior is very comfortable and has alot of features seen in higher end cars. Visibility is pretty good, sometimes side views are a little poor but nothing too bad. I get usually around 29 mpg so not too bad either. The outside is not wildly exciting...but it is on par with a Corolla. The trunk is very large and has room for all your groceries or suitcases. Changing the oil is very easy and a full tank of gas costs no more than $25 bucks. The only real negative I think of for the car are the headlights. I feel like the headlights on the normal setting don't illuminate the road ahead very well...but that can always be fixed. Overall, this is a great car. The interior is daring, comfortable, and feels like a much more expensive car. The exterior is not head turning but not bad either. The driving experience is good, the car is zippy and can accelerate very well on highway enterance ramps. The drive is comfortable for all in the car, and the car is easy to clean both inside and outside. Also the Sentra has a very large two tiered glove box, so you have moe than enough room for everything. A GREAT CAR!

Matter of time before the transmission fails

I bought my Sentra new in 2007. Some basic issues with the car like lack of power when accelerating, which I was aware of when I bought it. The car however does not come anywhere close to the advertised gas mileage (I get about 29 on the highway). My biggest issue however is that the CVT transmission completely failed at 70k miles. Nissan apparently recognized some sort of design flaw, as they had a service bulletin which extended the CVT warranty from 60k to 120k miles. That being said, my car was in the shop at the dealer for 2 weeks (didn't have any spare CVT parts on hand), and I got stuck with most of the $500 car rental bill, despite purchasing the extended service plan, and a lot of arm wrestling with Nissan corporate. I went with Nissan because of their reputation for quality, but next time, I'm buying a Toyota.

Sentra 2.0 S

This car was bought new as a graduation present for my daughter. To date it has had $5200 in repairs. The CVT transmission required a $1400 repair, then failled and had to be replaced for $2500. A motor mount broke, $500. Then it was discovered the rear axles were out of alignment and ruined a set of tires, $718 for new tires and the repair. When I researched that I found many Nissan owners with the same problem and Nissan and the dealers refused to fix it. The dealership knew about the axle problem and said they do not repair them period. Nissan and the dealer has been less than satisfactory and I woujld not recommend anyone buy a Nissan.

Visability is not good

I have a 2007 Nissan Sentra and although I think it's a good looking car and has as nice looking interier. I have found that the visablity is not good. There is a terrible blindspot due to the wide side air bag panels in conjunction with the mirror being one whole panel. I think the smaller rear window which is partially covered by the seat head rests doesn't help, along with smaller rearview mirror. I'm having a terrible time in this model for these reasons.

Not bad

I bought it brand new and now I have almost 100k and I DON'T do a lot of highway driving. So after 3 years and 100k miles here is what I think: The car is reliable. I love the keyless option and the bluetooth. Engine is still very good and very quite. I changed tires 3 times.. $500 worth of work to the transmition (I forgot what happened to it) and that's about it.. I have a bmw that I drive on the weekends and I barely take care of the nissan.. I change the oil every 7 or 8k miles! I beat on it! I dont slow down no matter how bumpy the road is, clean it once every couple of months. But the car still runs not bad at all.. I mean it sounds like the tires are about to fall off on bumps but that's only shocks and other than that no major problems at all - at least not that I know of... It's a reliable car and I think I'll buy the same exact car again for work.

I have had my Sentra for about 10 months and I really like it. The interior does scratch easily, but the bluetooth, mp3 jack, and keyless ignition make up for that. I am not a huge fan of the car from the side profile but I love the back and front view. The back seat is a bit small for a family but we make it work. I got 35 mpg on the highway on the last trip and get about 28 city. Way to step up to the plate Nissan!

i like the exterior styling best...looks like a mini altima/maxima on the side. CVT is great and the powerful 2.0L engine is comparabe to 1.8L in terms of gas mileage. some interior faults like over size driver side visor (keeps hitting the rear view mirror when pulling it down, it has no visor mirror. power door locks not automatic, door side pockets too small, radio lcd display is washed out under bright sunlight...still a great value car overall.

I am lucky to get the 2007 sentra the current generation's beginner. what a great stylish car, roomy interior, NEVER felt compact car's inconvenience. great steering control, awesome pick up and quiet as still when idling. after a warm up I feel the smoothness in driving. also surprising is the trunk capacity as good as a mid-size car. The back seats can be pull forward to fold and clean under them. Large dash board box that can hold many items. overall looks cute and rich as an expensive car. So I am happy and proud of it. I was looking to get a Honda Civic and tired and mad of its price range. So I expanded my search into Sentra and never regretted a single minute. Thanks Nissan for having delivered such a wonderful product at an affordable price.

I've had this car for about 8 months. It has performed really well. I love the blueotooth and electonic key. In fact all the interior stuff is great. I get around 32 mpg on my commute. EXterior is a bit boring - but no worse than most.

Not sure I would as far as living in this car as Nissan ad campaign suggests but it was comfortable for my 6'4" frame. I rented it and pulled off a 600 mile one day drive. I was pleasantly surprised by its comfort and performance although extremely tight steering took getting used to. Even at speeds of 90+ the car took it in stride. I did know it when I had a passenger and their luggage on board -- the car lists easily to the weighted side. Overall, other than the over-steering, the car was a good rental (don't buy the own I rented when it comes up for sale used) and I surely got my money's worth out of it.
