2017 Nisan Sentra NISMO

2017 Nisan Sentra NISMO After only 30K the Alternator had to be replaced. Left my wife, who limped-it-out of harms way, stranded on the side of the road. The dash screen - radio, navigation, back-up camera blacks out and stops working intermittently. Also the radio volume control won't advance past 3. Took if for service where they performed a software upgrade at our expense which did not solve the problem. Kelowna Nissan service pretends it's a one-of situation while the internet if full of multi-model complaints for the same thing. We bought an extensive premium warranty however the service department seems to have no clue what is covered.

We love this Carson much we have 2, 2016 and 2017

It's become impossible to get a standard transmission since some brilliant (business-wise) person came up with the "sport model upgrade." We like basic, reliable, easy, less expensive in all ways, and fun cars.

Small car good on gas

This car rides good low mile reliable. The interior could be better but it has a roomy interior to be a small car. The trunk is huge. Wish you bluetooth your music to stereo instead of using a aux cable. Overall a good car cheap on gas.

Happy To Have Bought This Car

I bought this car brand new during Nissan’s Black Friday sale and it was a bargain! I got an exceptional deal on the Sentra SV with all the extra features for the automatic including the luxury package. I got winters on rims, 0% financing, lifetime rust proof and much more! It was also a lot cheaper with more features compared to the other auto manufacturers at that time. I picked the car up on Dec 1, 2017 and still own it today. My car just hit 70,000km (43,400 miles) and it’s been great for me so far. Great winter car for driving and handling and great on gas. I read some reviews about others complaining about how it takes a bit to get it going but for my model I have no issues. Sometimes it takes a bit when in ECO Mode or right after I switch it off of ECO but nothing else otherwise which to me is kind of expected. Drives great under normal driving mode and gives a nice acceleration boost on Sports Mode especially for Highway onramps. I had my parents one time in the car and we drove from Barrie to Sudbury Ontario and back while also driving around Sudbury for 2 days, all on a single tank of gas (730-750km) and all it cost was $55CAD to fill up on premium fuel (it’s not enforced but recommended, will run fine on regular). If I were to pick any issues, it would be 2 of them. 1) Minor rusting around the chrome trim I noticed after the winter ended after I bought it from 2017 to 2018. Nissan fully covered the repairs including the 3 day rental. The Nissan approved shop added silicone behind the chrome and fixed it to prevent this issue and 3yrs later it’s never come back and I continually check it. 2) One of my ABS sensors in the front failed so I needed to get it replaced (cost $300CAD to fix including part and labour) as it just past the 60,000km/3yr mark by being 65,000km/3yr4m later. NOTE: Once in a while, the Bluetooth in the car will drop or fail but shortly after it’ll be ok again. Other than that, great car and recommend!

The most under power car I've own. MPG off by 10 m

The engineers underpowered what could have been a great vehicle. On the SV great a/c, sound system and roomier than most cars it's size. Unfortunately the lack of acceleration makes it less safe than it should be.
