A car that won't break your checkbook.

2001 Nissan Sentra SE

Vehicle is a gas saver Easy maintenance. One time the fuel pump went out and it was easy for me to fix since it is located just under the back seat. It rides really well and handles good. As far as issues go there were none. I didn't like the jack that came with it so I bought a better one. Tires were easy to change. You are a DIY person and wanted to replace the water pump or other thing that can be challenging since there is no room in the engine compartment.

Small problems, great car

2001 Nissan Sentra SE

My Nissan Sentra SE has paint issues. The paint continues to peel up and then chip off. The front of the car is hard to put the license plate on do to flimsy material. The AC works great but blows out a horrid smell when stopped. As long as I am driving the AC smells fine. The car idles a lot, enough to spill a drink in the cup holder. The car is very dependable other than those few problems.

Nissan sentry the best car on the road.

2001 Nissan Sentra

I love my Nissan sentra. I have had no problems since I bought it. I get great gas mileage. There was a recall on the airbags a year ago, and the service dept got me right in and out in less than an hour. If I were in the market of purchasing a new car, I would get another Nissan. If you are looking at buying a car I recommend you first check out Nissan. Great car for the price.
