Super Sporty Nissan Sentra

I love my car. It is very sporty and has a lot of pep. It has been a really good reliable car. However, it was very disappointing to find out recently that the transmission was going out and needed to be replaced. I only had about 83,000 miles on it. Because I love my car so much and didn't want to have a new car payment I opted to have the transmission replaced. Since this has happened it has made me a little wary of purchasing a Nissan in the future. Also, a few years ago the compressor in the AC unit went out and had to be replaced. My mother has the same year model car and her AC compressor had to be replaced as well. She is hoping that her transmission won't fail too. All in all it has been a very good car even though these things have happened.

The one thing about this vehicle is that it does not have cruise control!

I bought my car used with approximately 51, 000 miles on. It has been very reliable mechanically. I have never had any problems starting it or driving it. Only routine maintenance has been required to keep it up and running. My biggest complaint about the car is that it is not particularly "fun" to drive. . . It does not have very much power and so it does not accelerate quickly or go exceptionally fast. . . The suspension is kind of lose and even though it is a 6 speed manual transmission, it is not really very sporty. But overall I think this is a decent vehicle for the price you pay. So I would rate it as a 3 on a scale from 1 to 10.

Nissan Sentra, the vehicle known for reliability.

I bought my Sentra 2 years ago from Milton Martin Honda in Gainesville, GA used but in good condition, I have changed the tires 1-2 times had all oil changes done on time, changed the driver side strut, and now working on the mass air flow sensor wiring. This car has been great as far as performance I really hate the color which is white but to buy a used vehicle at such a great price and the car still be in the great condition that I bought it in says a lot for Nissan one of the most reliable I have bought. I would not go back and change my decision and would recommend this car to anyone.
