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.

It's a pretty decent car

by from Chicago, IL on October 18, 2016

The sport feature is great for all your speed demons out there. It's great on gas. Great for commuting.

13k miles review

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.

I've been an owner of this vehicle since March 2015; this car is excellent on gas and drivability. This is a car that has many valuable features such as the Eco and the Sports button which allows the user to choose how they want to drive their car each day. Living in a small rural area where a car is needed to get to everywhere you go, this car is great for the value. This is my first brand new car and there is nothing bad I can say about my 2014 Nissan Sentra S; excellent car. I have become a Nissan customer and at this point intend to stay one because of the service Nissan provides and the vehicle quality.

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.

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.
