The Life-saving Nissan Sentra

I love my car in regards to efficiency and reliability. Although it is a 2010 model, Nissan Sentra runs great on gas! It has a 4-cylinder tank runs for 29 miles per gallon. After the transmission on my last vehicle gave out this used car was not only affordable, but safe enough for my 45-minute commute to work and school. I did buy it used, however, I've had minimal problems. Once I replaced the tires, brakes, and got an oil change the car was good as new! Some of my favorite features of this vehicle include cruise control, remote trunk release, heated mirrors, and the electric speed- proportional power steering. This is also a midsize vehicle, so it is very compact in size but would fit any family of four wonderfully. I think this is honestly the best vehicle for anybody. This car definitely suits first time drivers as well as retirees that want something efficient and affordable. Another feature I'm in awe with is the endless storage compartments. I'm able to go antique shopping with my mother on the weekends and fit just about anything in this car! The back row seating folds down, there is a console compartment, a large glove compartment, and supersized cup holders. I was pleasantly surprised that a sedan could store this much. I admit, I have only had this car for less than a year but it has been virtually maintenance free and lifesaver when I really needed it. I genuinely have no regrets over my purchase.

It is reliable, fuel efficient, easy to operate, good quality and decent price.

I have owned my Nissan Sentra for 8 years now. I find it to be a very functional vehicle for the money. It also has a somewhat luxury feel for the money as well. The materials used are good quality and have held very well over time. Mine has a tan interior and there has been very little fading of the console or fabric. It is also very easy to shampoo and clean. With regards to mechanical issues I have had no issues a all aside from general maintenance. Such as replacing spark plugs. Additionally the brake pads and tires that came standard with the vehicle held up well beyond their standard life and were good quality. I use this vehicle as my daily driver and it has a bit over 100, 000 miles on it. The paint also has held up well especially considering I don't wash it on a regular basis and have only recently started waxing it. The only parts that have shown wear is the door handles. Inside the only thing that has started to show signs of disrepair is the headliner, at the rear it has started to peel down and will need to be glued backup. All and all I have no complaints and this vehicle has held up exceptionally well with very little maintenance and upkeep.

Highlights about 2010 Nissan Sentra!!

I have had this car for about two years now. I use it for mostly commuting to work and school. It has automatic windows and locks, great gas mileage (about $20-$26 to fill up), radio settings on the steering wheel, large glove compartment, smaller dash compartment, cup holders in the front (that adjust to the size of your cup) and the back, and rear window defrost. The back seats lay down to provide trunk entrance or for add trunk space and have an adjustable armrest with cup holders that can be raised into the seat for a middle back seat passenger. The a. C. And heat work very well! The trunk is spacious and roomy with a hidden spare tire compartment in the bottom. It handles well. It does have a dock for an iPod mini and charging adapter inside of the arm rest, as well as a dock for another charging adapter under the dashboard. There are no USB charging ports however and only a standard digital radio/cd player with an AUX port.
