Nissan the devilish 2004 Sentra.

2004 Nissan Sentra

I first bought the car for $3000 back in 2016 and the first couple of weeks it was working really good but by the 2nd week it started giving me problems. I took it to a mechanic shop for inspection and come to find out there was a long list of problems need to be fixed. From the transmission that cost me another $1000 dollars to repair, the computer system wasn't working (speed gauges weren't going up) and the speed exhaust was, I think what he said was, that it was starting to clog. Fast forward to 2018 to today 11/2/2018 the transmission went out again. I have literally spent some of my taxes on this car (mind you I have 3 kids which means I get some extra tax return) in total I must've spent around $8,000 dollars on this car. My girlfriend told me that my Nissan is not even worth that much so why would I continue to fix it? This car has taught me to take some time doing some research before buying any car. My recommendation is do your research!

Great vehicle for road trips or long commutes to work.

2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R

My car is reliable source of transportation. It drives well with minimal issues. Some of the features are power windows, FM and am radio with a aux port, and automatic locks. My car gets great gas mileage and is a smooth drive with little wind noise. I have taking my car on multiple road trips that were 250 miles and more and had no issues. Some of the issues it has had is the head gasket needed replacing and brake line was replaced. I have had this car for 10 years and it is still very reliable and no major issues. My car is great as a everyday driver and is nice and roomy for a smaller vehicle. I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone that needs a reliable vehicle.

Great economy car that's gas efficient and easily maintained. Reliable is Nissan.

2004 Nissan Sentra Base

Nissan sentra is a great family car. What I love most about it is it is gas efficient. As a mom with kids with a busy schedule I definitely appreciate the gas per miles that I received from my car. I also love its size. It's a small car so it's easy to control and easy to park. Easy to view my surroundings. It does have its downfall, as I worry if I would get in an accident the impact id receive from much larger cars. It never gives me any mechanical issues and maintenance on it is easy. No real huge flaws. Anything I'd had to replace like a compressor was just cause of age of car. But parts are very affordable. It's a good economy car.
