I have the the 2014 nissan sentra FE +SV. This is my personal vehicle. So far mileage in the city is a constant 24-26 mpg. Highway a constant 34-37 mpg and a mixed city/highway mpg of right under 32. I have gotten as much as 39.25 (cruise control the whole time) on the highway and as little as 20.25 in the city (because of cold winters with extra ethanol in the gas and warming the car up for 15 mins. almost every time). I am pleased with the car overall. I'm 6'2" 240 lbs. and sit very comfortably in the car. It is very spacious. The car does drive very smooth. CVT is still a little weird for me but that's just the nature of the transmission. I always feel the CVT droning around 20-25 mph and then it is smooth the rest of the way. Suspension is good but a bit noisy. Front driver seat does not recline forward on me unless I lift the lever and use my hand at the same time to pull the seat forward. I did notice that the paint does chip fairly easy. Guages look beautiful. A/C is ice cold, while the heat takes a while to warm the car up. Telescoping steering wheel seems pointless in this car. Also, center armrest seems a bit small and positioned a bit far back. So far 13k miles no mechanical issues whatsoever. I hope this review may have helped someone.

Like a lot of other people my transmission went out on me. Bought it Sept 2014. Current date I Jan 2017. My family has owned 5 nissans I used the vehicle to travel to work mainly freeway miles. Kept up all my maintenance with the dealership. I called Nissan HQ no help because I was over my miles. Now I'm just stuck with the car and ill feelings about a company I used to stand by.

Good lil' Commuter

Going from a 2009 to a 2014 was a bit of a shock performance wise. The 2014 is a slug at best and embarrassing going uphill. But the gas mileage is awesome, the creature comforts with Bluetooth and sound system are wonderful, and the interior is nicely upgraded. For the price, this is the best commuter on the market. Excellent value. I just hope the newer models bring a little more performance to the table.

My husband and I were in the market for a car, I had totaled mine out about two weeks before. Long, busy, stressful week, we had a plan as we made our way to the dealership. We'd pulled into the lot and had gotten off of our rental. Eugene Del Regio approached us. We told him what we were in the market for and he showed us the two cars we had inquired about: The Nissan Versa & the Nissan Sentra, respectively. We test drove the both of them and decided that the Nissan Sentra is the car that would work the best for us. We felt no pressure at all and were pleasantly surprised at that. Mr. Del Regio walked us into the dealership offered us some hot drinks, it was rather cold outside. He then came back and we went over to his desk so that he could get our information. My husband had some questions about the car and throughout the entire process Eugene remained positive and made us feel very comfortable. Because we felt no pressure and were very comfortable with Eugene we decided that we were going to buy the car right then and there from him and your dealership. The rest of the staff was just as pleasant and helpful. We've had no problems promoting this dealership to co-workers, friends and family members. This was a great experience!

the nissan sentra is a perfect car for a college graduate. my daughter absolutely loves her sentra. it gets great mileage (mid 30's) even higher when the eco mode is on. looks and feels like a midsize sedan even though it's a compact. the sentra has enough get up and go when you need it but not so much power that the young driver is overwhelmed. great car. I recommend the maxima for the parents choice.

My Second Sentra

I'm finding my 2014 Sentra to be nicely improved over my 2008, which is still running great with 145000 miles. I'm seeing better mileage with the 2014. If I'm easy on the accelerator and set the cruise at 65MPH on the highway, It's getting 43.5 MPG. My only gripes so far is an occasional rattle which the dealer is attempting to isolate. I too was annoyed that the wiper arms could not be raised without taking the paint off of the hood. However I was able to find the following solution: Upon turning the car off, immediately tap the wiper control arm upward twice. This moves the wiper arms to the midway point where they stop. This allows for the blades to be changed. If the car has not been running. this can also be achieved by turning the key to the on position, then off and then tapping the wiper control arm upward twice. If not for the rattle and the wiper blade issues, this would be a five star car in every category.

This is an excellent car for road warriors or college students, what people should be talking about this car is how well CVT transmission makes car handle exceptionally great in snow, ice and rain, The 2014 Sentra has great gas mileage fantastic smooth comfortable ride but suspension is stiff enough to take a sharp turn on an offramp with ease, this is a great car, would highly recommend for first time drivers average about 29 to 30 MPG's and city, 39 to 42 on the highway, combined 33 mpg,

Some Sentras with high mileages but look pretty new. It makes sense as they were rental cars. Don't let disguises fool you. Make sure do a pre-purchase inspection in a third-part (critical) dealer (Nissan official suggested). Make sure it is safe and reliable.
