Getting to Know My 2013 Nissan Sentra Push button driving is great.

2013 Nissan Sentra Base

I have had no problems with my vehicle so far. My car gives me excellent gas mileage. The most challenging learning experience with my car was using a push button ignition. After years and years of using hard keys to start my car, unlock my doors, and open my trunk, the automation aspect came as a pleasant surprise. The security features are what please me the most. The car cannot be started unless the driver has the electronic key, making it harder to be stolen. The car, when locked, cannot be opened unless the driver has the key, making it harder for the car to be broken into. A potential thief has to have better knowledge in electronics, unlike in the past. Also, when driving on the highway, the car has great fuel saving techniques. The car can be allowed to coast, and at the same time saving gas. When the car is low in gas, the dashboard lets the driver know exactly how many gallons of gas left in the tank. One thing which is still hard to get used to, however, is the gas tank being on the opposite side of the driver. For a medium to small sized car, it has more than enough interior space. It can comfortably seat four passengers, and even five if needed. However, when losing something under the seat, finding it is a chore because it is little room under the seat. This car also has a larger glove compartment than I have had with previous cars. I can literally put my entire lunch in it when I go to work. I have my car for over a year, and so far, I am pleased with it.

Very great buy, but look for better tires and steering wheel cover .

2013 Nissan Sentra SV

The Nissan Sentra is a very good car. The basic model has the basic features any person would look for in a vehicle, power windows, buttons on your steering wheel ( cruise control, volume , station seek etc) it also has a CD player and aux port. The seats are comfortable. The car is comfortable for 3 people at lost in my opinion. I typically only use this car for myself and 1 other passenger. The trunk is quite spacious I must say. I have used it to haul, strollers , camera equipment and a load of groceries. One thing that I noticed is the steering wheel begins to peel very quickly, and it can be a little less than ideal while driving. Also I had a recall on my vehicle in 2015 regarding the airbags so please check on this as you remember. The gas on it is very good on the highway, while in the city it does about a 3.5 out of 5. Another thing would be the tires, I would invest in better tires as the originals lose wear very quickly. But overall I enjoy my Sentra it has held up very well over the last few years.

My car is roomier than it looks from the outside.

2013 Nissan Sentra

It is small and has a four cylinder engine, so it is less powerful than my previous car (V6), but it gets MUCH better gas mileage than my previous car. I miss the power of my old car, but I love the gas mileage I get with my Sentra. It is comfortable for me to drive, even on long trips, and I can seat my family in it comfortably in spite of It's small size. Love that the trunk is bigger than you'd think it would be looking at the car from the outside. The blind spots are very blind spots. More than once I have changed lanes only to have a car appear on my bumper with me wondering where it came from, or it blowing It's horn (so I assume it was there and I didn't see it before I made my move). I have to be hyper-vigilant about keeping up with what's going on around and behind me in traffic.
