It's an ok car it gets. Me where I need to go.

My car is ok, but the air condition doesn't work, it acts like it wants to stall out sometimes, and it does this thing where I push on the gas and it revs up but I don't go any faster, other than that it's not that bad. The inside is nice, it burns gas kind of fast, the seats are comfortable, only the front speakers work.

My Nissan Sentra is a good running car to be a 2002.

It's a gas saver. It runs well even though it is an aged care. I love it. The parts are cheap, a really can do job yourself watching YouTube. Its small but comfy. It is just right for me. If given the chance I would purchase another Nissan Sentra, maybe this time with a sunroof and black. It drives easy and smooth also.

- Johnson L

Very reliable and spacious for size.

My 2002 Nissan Sentra has proven time and time again to be a very reliable vehicle. Although it appears small from the outside, once you are in it, you really notice how very spacious it is. Giving ample space for my family and I. Although gas mileage is not the greatest in town, highway miles exceed expectations.
