You'll Like The 2008 Nissan Sentra If...

When interior space and serenity really matter, the Sentra delivers in a big way. Those facing long, tortuous commutes will also appreciate the practical charms of its Xtronic Continuously...

My Nissan sentra is used 95% of the time. The only time we'll use the Toyota SUV.

2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S

I don't really have any problems with my vehicle, none that cannot help anyway. As soon as my 'check engine' light comes on I take it to the nearest autozone & let them run a test on it to see what the problem might be. As far as the performance & reliability are concerned, if you stay on top of your oil changes, tire rotations, tune ups, & the cleanliness of the vehicle, your vehicle will stay running like new. A lot of people do not pay attention to the tire rotations, but that is one of the most important features, besides the oil change, because your tires will last a whole lot longer. So, if you stay on top of all maintenance issues for the most part, the comfort of the vehicle will fall into place.

Grey blue sentra. She has grey interior with a grey blue paint on the outside.

2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S

My Nissan sentra is go to vehicle. The seats a super comfortable and lean all the way back so you can just relax in a parking lot or in your driveway listening to music. It is super reliable and easy to maintain. The maintenance on my sentra is super easy. I personally do my own oil changes it is that easy. The features that come in my car is a aux cord, so you can listen to your own music instead of the radios. It also has power locks, instead of manual. The trunk is decent size could fit two full size strollers in it. Overall my car is my joy and pride and she's a great for a first time driver!

Very reliable and comfortable

2008 Nissan Sentra 2

I really enjoy my vehicle even though it is not my preferred car nor did I pick it but it has been very reliable for me. The performance on it has been very good. Recently I have run into trouble with the air conditioning but that wasn't anything to major to complain about. I was able to fix it very quickly and cost effectively. The car itself is also very comfortable. The features on it aren't too up to date but they aren't completely out of date. Overall, the car has done me a great solid and I have been able to depend on it heavily.
