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.

Great vehicle, has stood up to the test of time.

2004 Nissan Sentra Base

My car has stood the test of time! When I bought it, the car had 75,000 miles on it and 10 years later we are almost at 300,000 and she still runs just fine. Other than normal maintenance, we have not had any issues. I've driven this car from home in northeast MS to Florida, Tennessee, Louisiana and more. Plenty of room for my family of 3 and a great beginner vehicle. I would highly recommend this vehicle and when I'm in the market for another vehicle, I will be looking for one just like this!

My car is sleek, compact and aerodynamically sound.

2004 Nissan Sentra Base

I really love my Nissan. It performs very well for a compact vehicle and even though it has a small engine, it is powerful enough to get up and go and it's extremely good on gas. However, it can be somewhat of a pain to fix. It's considered a foreign vehicle and repairs for foreign cars are often quite tedious and difficult. I have already replaced the engine in the vehicle and it cost a good bit, that was also just on a rebuild.

15 years working fine and will continue to do so.

2004 Nissan Sentra Base

I bought the car brand new 15 years ago. Very few problems with it. It has less than 60,000 miles on it. If I ever decided to buy another car in the future, I would surely make it a NISSAN SENTRA. It handles great. The only minor problem with it, is on the highway, it doesn't have tons of power. It's alright, I rarely drive the highway anymore.

- Carlo M

The little engine that could.

2004 Nissan Sentra Base

My vehicle has lasted 15 years and very few problems. I would highly recommend this type of vehicle. I had originally planned to buy this car and have it last me only ten years but it only gave me 2 minor problems and just required regular maintenance. It has 222000 miles on it and still going strong.

Problems with my Nissan sentra

2004 Nissan Sentra Base

My air conditioner stopped working, the dash started breaking, windshield wiper washer doesn't spray, radio buttons are jammed/don't work, interior light stopped working, door panel handles came off, bumper came loose, mirrors in the sun visors fell out, the sunglass compartment won't stay closed.

- Morgan G

Just Kept Going - no matter how much I drove or how badly I treated it.

2004 Nissan Sentra Base

Very reliable. This one has 260000 miles on it. Just basic detail and features, but everything works well. I did have the passenger side window out of order, but that's the only problem I have had with this car. I used this car for some regular, heavy travel

- John I

It is very reliable..Gas efficient.

2004 Nissan Sentra Base

U brought it 2nd hand so it's been good really no real problem..Just have to replace the windshield..The heater fan just went out so I would need to fix that. Other than that the car rides good. I did have to replace the studs and the wheel hub on the car.

2004 Nissan Sentra 1.8L - super durable

2004 Nissan Sentra Base

This thing has about 220,000 miles on it and just keeps chugging. The gas mileage is as good as when I bought it five years ago. I don't worry about getting stranded with this car. It has needed minimal maintenance and repair in the time I've owned it.
