This car had the suspension, brakes, tires, window wipers, lights replaced.

It is an old car, a lot of it was repaired but the downside is that the car is mostly manual. This means that there is no remote for it and that I have to physically unlock and lock each door with a key. Even though this is an old car it still has gotten me to places safely and even though it stalls when you try to turn it on but it still runs and drives smooth enough. Another downside is that the back windows do not roll down so I make sure they stay shut and the windshield is a little cracked from the last owner. I do love this car a lot and aside from the problems it has new tires, new suspension, and new breaks so it has everything it needs to run smoothly and safely.

It is reliable, easy to drive,looks good. Low maintenance,dependable

I have always been very happy with my Nissan. I have had minimal problems and have been very pleased with the reliability as well as performance. I will keep it until I am no longer driving, which will be in two years or less. I have always kept up with the maintenance, which I believe has added to the great performance and minimal problems. I have always taken it to a Nissan-Datsun shop for a winter check-up and again in the spring. I have always been glad that I bought my Nissan, although I had won a Ford just a week after buying my Nissan. I sold th Ford which helped pay for my Nissan. Yeah Nissan!!

2006 White Nissan small sedan.

I have had a Nissan Sentra since 2006 and I quite like it. It is small and very easy to drive and park. Problems started a few years after I bought it- the first of which was an ongoing issue with the starter- it does not always work right away but I have literally never had it fixed and my car always starts eventually. Radio and speakers went after probably 5-6 years. Comfortable to drive if you are smaller (my 6 foot tall husband cannot drive it comfortably). But I love this car and wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.
