Vehicle is still reliable after 100,000 miles!

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

I enjoy car very much. It gets great gas mileage and is still very well at 103,000 miles. This vehicle is comfortable and has working AC and an auxiliary port. The only issue I have with this vehicle is that it gets very shaky when on the highway, and can be aggressive when accelerating. These attributes are likely cause by the old age of the car and the fact that the engine is older.

It's not that great, wouldn't recommend to anyone

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

It's very loud, the power steering just went out. The radio clicks in and out and my CD player doesn't work. One of my seat belts don't work. And the door handles are gone minus two. I don't know if I would recommend this vehicle to anybody shopping for cars. It's old and outdated and also has quite a few miles on it

- Angel G

Just enough horsepower to get up and go

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

I love my car. It runs great, had just enough horsepower to get up and go if I need it to but yet it's still great on gas. It's 4 door so it's great to accommodate my entire family. However one thing I think the company should think about is remote control starts for all cars. That would be so much more helpful

- Ashley S

It's slim and clean, and well put together. It has a nice appearance.

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

The only issue I really have with my vehicle is that it does not accelerate very well. But it maintains speed and has decent gas mileage. It's a good size, and holds itself together well. It's nice to look at, comfortable, and easy to work. It is a smaller sized vehicle, but still has plenty of space.

- Cameron T

I think an interesting vehicle would be one that helps prevent accidents.

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

This vehicle has been through multiple accidents and although the body looks beat up, it still runs great! It has taken many trips from Pennsylvania to Florida. I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for reliable transportation that does not constantly need mechanical work.

- Courtney H

Sentra is reliable and low maintenance to own.

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

Small- but reliable. It is a gas saver and low maintenance. My car was all manual including the transmission and the windows. The doors were also manual. The pats for service were very cheap and easy to find and work with. I never had to replace big parts just the regular maintenance

- Ben M

Great, reliable car with good gas mileage.

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

Very reliable. No major problems or concerns. Not very spacious which is not helpful for long car trips. Good gas mileage for the age of the car. Wish it had a backup camera. High accident safety when rear ended. No major repairs but ensure belts are changed or loud screeching occurs.

- Liza F

Nissan sentra equals a lemon.

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

The car is super small on the inside. There is an airbag recall and something wrong with the front end that is a mystery to everyone that has looked at it. The air conditioner works when it wants to. The seals leak on the passenger door as well. The prices was right but it is a lemon.

2006 Nissan Sentra- Awesome car!

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

I absolutely love my car! My only issue is that my car leaks power steering fluid and so it is very hard to turn sometimes. I have had the car for two and a half years, and it is a 2006. It's running on 217,000 miles and it has been very reliable. It has amazing gas mileage as well.

- Maya F

This is a good car, nothing fancy.

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

This car is very comfortable. It gets great gas mileage. I do wish it had some extra amenities though. It does not have cruise control, or power locks or windows. I have not had any mechanical issues so far. The dash console does fall off a lot easier than I feel it should though.

- Rachel T

It runs very well and is reliable.

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8

It gets harder to start and is very dented. However, it has driven well for the past couple of years. As well, it gets me long distances without a problem. It does well in bad weather and works very well for being 10+ years old. I hope to get another Nissan that works as well.

- Chelsea S

My favorite car by far the best

2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8
