2008 Nissan Sentra - inexpensive and reliable.

10-year-old vehicle - I have never had a mechanical problem with it that was due to something other than normal wear. My favorite thing about it is that it is paid for. I wish it got better gas mileage. Even the rear view mirror has stayed attached which is a big deal when they're attached to the window and you live in Texas. The interior has held up well. The stock radio and speakers are awesome.

Nissan sentra - a great choice!

I have had my Nissan sentra since 2008 and the quality of this vehicle is very good. My car is at 123,000 miles and right now the only maintenance issue right now is the tire pressure sensor light staying on all of the time. I get my maintenance done regularly and I have no major issues with my car. My car is comfortable and stylish and I am happy that I chose a Nissan for my second vehicle.

- Erica F

Nissan Sentra good on gas.

Does not hold the road very well and it has new tires. Steering is not very tight. It does however get extremely good gas mileage. About 35 mpg on the highway. It has been a reliable car since purchasing it new in 2008 and I have not had any major mechanical issues with it. I make a lot of trips from Kentucky to Arkansas and it does wonderful on the interstate. It is not broke down yet.
