It is a small feature, but I appreciate the adjustable cup holders

2012 Nissan Sentra SE-R

I have had few car problems so far, but I do wish I had gotten a car that had more features within the car. Originally, I did not think this would be important to me, but now I wish I had gotten it. I wish the car had more safety features, such as a backup camera. Also touch features on the steering wheel would be nice as well.

Great gas mileage and dependability

2012 Nissan Sentra SE-R

This car is extremely reliable and relatively comfortable. I haven't had any problems with this car mechanically. My only complaint is the undercarriage was covered by cheap plastic that has broken off when barely hitting small bumps in the road. Other than that I would recommend this vehicle to an interested buyer.

Love my Sentra!! Love my 2012 red Sentra! The sunroof is my favorite feature!

2012 Nissan Sentra SE-R

I love my red Sentra! It has amazing pickup and a lot of room for the kids in the back! The deep trunk is great too. Lots of room! It sits low to the road. My seats are very comfortable. After 7 years with my Nissan, I haven't had any major issues or concerns.
