5 Star, would 100% repurchase!

2013 Nissan Sentra S

I love my Nissan Sentra. It's comfortable to drive with plenty of space in front seat, back seat, and in the trunk. The car drives smooth and so far I haven't had any mechanical issues with the car. It's not too big but it still feels sturdy and safe when I'm driving. It's by far my favorite car I've ever owned and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. I would 100% repurchase in the future when buying another vehicle.

Nissan Sentra; reliable for a small family.

2013 Nissan Sentra S

The car overall is pretty good, I'm a short person and I have small legs so the seats should be more adjustable for people of all heights. The seats are pretty comfortable, there's not that much space to put your legs in for tall people though. The car is pretty good if you have a small family, maybe just one kid. The trunk space is pretty good to buy groceries, and the back seats also good if you're only driving two people.

Heated seats and good gas mileage

2013 Nissan Sentra S

I bought my 2013 Nissan Sentra 3 months ago and so far has been great. Good gas mileage, smooth driving. I like the audio system and that it automatically plays music when I plug the charger into my iPhone. The only thing I would change is the seat doesn't go back and forth with a button it's the manual where you pull the lever and slide forward. The fact that the seats are heated helps make up for that.

Dependable and long lasting

2013 Nissan Sentra S

Very Dependable, enjoyable to ride in even on long drives. Can trust to drive with no problem for at least another hundred thousand miles. A little low to ground but you get used to it. Great backup and electric system. Only bad thing to stay under warranty must have all tube ups and oil changes done at Nissan. A little costly but worth it.

The White 2013 Nissan Sentra

2013 Nissan Sentra S

My Nissan Sentra is very reliable, never had any problems. Very good on gas mileage. Take on many road trips- very comfortable. Features include- sport mode, eco mode, AC, aid input, Bluetooth connection and many more. The many spacious compartments allow for storage. The truck is very spacious and good for travel. Can seat 5 comfortably.

Runs smooth and Great Mileage on your gas.

2013 Nissan Sentra S

I bought it with 40k miles In the second user. 6 speeds and It works great. I ride long miles and for the past 3 years I have only done oil change. Awesome car so far. Very economical too. it's a 4 door family sedan. With 40 dollars I can go to 3 States away without gas refill. So far I would recommend the car to others.

The compact Sentra, look out!

2013 Nissan Sentra S

I love this car! It's pretty compact which is nice and is good on gas. It drives well and the bass is great. My least favorite part of the car would be on highways sometime the car isn't as stable as others. It's a great car because I can turn around virtually anywhere and fit into small parking spots!

- Abby L

Great buy! Perfect family car

2013 Nissan Sentra S

It's a very reliable car and great on gas mileage! I have 3 children and it's very spacious in the backseat. The trunk size is great perfect for doing big grocery shopping. The car drives very smooth and so far I haven't had any mechanical issues and I've had it for a year now and I'm second owner.

- Candice P

The Nissan Sentra would be a great first car and it does amazing on gas mileage

2013 Nissan Sentra S

This is a great car for travel because the mileage I get is awesome. It would be a perfect first car. I have not had any mechanical issues and I have had this vehicle for two years now. It is comfortable and big enough for adults (men and women) Trunk is huge and I can fit everything I need inside

Sentra with a Transmission problem

2013 Nissan Sentra S

It's a 2013. I bought it in February 2014. By November 2014 I had to get a brand new transmission. They said this model was built with a transmission too small for the car. It's 2019 and my transmission feels like it is starting to go out again. Other than that, the car has treated me well.

- Sierra T

The super unimpressive Nissan Sentra

2013 Nissan Sentra S

This car is the most basic vehicle you can purchase. There is nothing to write home about. It is a vessel to get you from point a to point b. It's decent with gas mileage. The stereo is terrible. You will definitely have to upgrade the stereo. Just hope it gets you where you need to go!

- Ellie K

My 2013 sentra, small car, big performance.

2013 Nissan Sentra S

The car I drive is a 2013 Nissan sentra. I have owned the car since 2015 and I haven't had any major issues at all with the car to this point. I recommend this type of vehicle to people who need good gas mileage and dependability. The size is just right for a small family also,

- Clarence T

life with a Nissan sentra

2013 Nissan Sentra S

I have been having problems with my transmission recently. The gas Mileage is very good, so I save a lot of money. It's a very comfortable car, and the most important thing is that it always gets me where I need to go. It is very inexpensive for what it is, and I enjoy it!

- Alexis B

Rough ride, but good horsepower for the price.

2013 Nissan Sentra S

CVT transmission is sluggish on taking off. The car is a little rough riding. Gas mileage is not accurate. Car is small. But overall the car is reliable and roomy given the size compact. I am pretty content with the car for work usage hope this helps with purchase.

- Evelyn S

Good car for the price. No issues at all

2013 Nissan Sentra S

No issues at all. It rides well. It is not to expensive for gas. The trunk is very spacious. Easy to clean. The seats are very comfortable. It has a lot more room than you would think. The push to start is something new for me. It does not have a backup camera.

- Ti B

Dependable car through and through

2013 Nissan Sentra S

It is easy to operate, gas saver. The seats are comfortable, but it doesn't have seat warmers or anything like that. The most I have had to deal with was the intake of the engine, otherwise the cost for tires, oil change and upkeep is lower in cost than SUV.

- Ray M

The Black Knight is what I call my vehicle

2013 Nissan Sentra S

I have a black 2013 Nissan Sentra, it runs great & I make sure to keep up with the maintenance, it's great on gas, smooth drive , tinted windows, brand new tires, air conditioner blows super cool air, has Bluetooth connection, it can be a great travel car

- Kayla P

Fantastic affordable car for a family of 4.

2013 Nissan Sentra S

It is a very reliable, comfortable, and affordable car. Some of the interior feels cheap, and is coming apart and is easy to knock out of place. The gas mileage is really good. Decent amount of trunk space. I haven't had any problems with it whatsoever.

- Sarah D

2013 Nissan Sentra is a great car

2013 Nissan Sentra S

No problems with this car, it's great. Super reliable, never have any issues with the engine despite it being 6 years old now. Very spacious trunk and back seat. Lots of legroom up front. Handles easily, push to start and keyless entry came standard.

- Destiny S

Love my 2013 Nissan Sentra

2013 Nissan Sentra S

This is my 3rd Nissan Sentra. The Sentra is not the top of the line in Nissans but is an affordable model. Gas mileage is great. The interior is roomy in the front and not too bad in the back. It handles easily and is an attractive compact sedan.
