A great daily driver. The best thing is the eco mode and the gas mileage.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Car is a great daily driver, great on gas and comfortable for small family. As my first car right out of high school it was an extremely responsible choice on my part. I've had the car for a little over 2 years now have had no serious problems or issues with the car. I drive 30 minutes to work and take monthly trips that are about 300 miles to get to my destination. As my daily driver on fairly flat surfaces I think it's great. Where it falls short is going uphill. I notice it struggles a bit but does compensate with the sport mode and overdrive. Pretty much both buttons just up the RPMs to give it more power. So it can handle hills just me personally I don't like having to resort to those buttons too often. The Eco mode tho is a lifesaver I average just above 33 miles per gallon which I think is awesome for how much I drive. So as a daily driver to work and home and occasional trips I think the Nissan Sentra SV is a solid 8/10.

- Isaiah V

Good car not completely appreciated by jaded owner.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Love the interior features of my car, leather seats, heated seats, extra interior lights and cup holders. The style of the exterior is sleek and the paint color is an unusual dark blue. But to the important things, I do have a concern about gas mileage, it has gone from 31 to 28.9 in 8 months and I am concerned about a rattle that has developed under the car that the dealership has not been able to identify and fix. The car performed nicely in all the snow this winter but the windows had a problem icing up on the inside which is annoying. Pickup and performance is as expected and the braking system is working fine. It is a comfortable car to drive and ride in. All in all, it is a good car. I had to trade a Land Rover small SUV, which I loved for more than 100,000 miles for it so that I do not completely love a sedan is expected. I am sure anyone else would love this car completely.

- Janice W

Amazing compact car with complete reliability, and great on gas.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

My Nissan sentra is extremely reliable and has gotten me through the last year with no problems. One thing that does give me issues are their tires. I have maintained it every six months and because I work from home have not used too many miles a year. The one thing is accelerating may take time especially if driving on eco versus other cars that do still drive smoothly when speeding up on that setting. The comfort is great for a compact car. The size, driving, cameras and sensors have been very convenient as well in the past. I would say the tires do tend to give me issues more than normal but may not be due to the car.

- Esther P

Great engine but everything else is breaking.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

My Nissan Sentra runs great and I have never had to take it to the car shop for repairs! The interior carpet is detaching from the floor. The door strips are constantly hanging off. The door handle on the drivers side is broken. I have never owned a vehicle that was this cheaply built. I was afraid that I had purchased a car that was only built for the showroom and not actually for regular use. I will never recommend a Nissan to anyone and I tell people all the time not to purchase one. The only good thing is that it has never had any engine problems. The only feature that I like is the Bluetooth.

- Marcus G

Review of 2015 Nissan Sentra

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

The car drives well on city roads. The performance on highway leaves much to be desired. The cars CVT does not perform well. It seems to get stuck in the lower gears and has trouble keeping up with the speed and flow of traffic. The features of the car are very basic, nothing very exciting or visually appealing. Overall, it is a very basic car that has good reliability with every day driving. I would recommend it for younger drivers or those who do not drive a great distance on a regular basis. However, if you do any amount of interstate driving at higher speeds, I would pass on this one.

- Ashley K

EVAP leaks are annoying, but safe

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

I've only had a few issues with my car. It jerks often, and I've had trouble with the EVAP system. My engine light has been going on and off for about 5 or 6 months and I just found out that I need a Fuel Pump Assembly. It's a really expensive repair, and I do not think it is covered by any warranty or insurance. I've also had an instance where the brakes locked up and every light on my dashboard lit up. It only lasted for a few seconds, but it was really weird. Otherwise, the car is great!

- Brittany C

Great quality car that has easy to use features and settings

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

I've had this vehicle since 2014, and have never come across any issues with it. Car drives very smoothly and has an button to use its economy feature and a sport feature. It is very easy to setup the Bluetooth, and change menu/screen settings. My car has the push to start feature which is amazing the only problem is that if your FOB dies you will not be able to start the car. Thankfully you can take the 'key' out of the fob to open the car doors.

- Lena M

Dependable and reliable performer..

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Performance is excellent, I have never had problems with it. When I press the start button, it starts. The only time it didn't was when the battery in the remote went dead, then I just pulled out the key, inserted in the ignition and it started. I have routine maintenance performed on it on a regular basis and it keeps on going. It is smooth riding and very comfortable. The heated front seats are an appreciated bonus on really cold days.

- Patricia D

Excellent economy size car.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

I have not had any issues at all with my vehicle since I have purchased it. It's very comfortable to Radio and has great gas mileage. I love the modern technology features also. Has a great stereo system and I love the backup camera that has help me a lot. Has a smooth ride and sunroof feature is awesome ! I have had a previous Nissan Sentra and decided to buy another one. Very Nice car

- Denise O

Very spacious and roomy for passengers

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

This car gets great mileage and handles like a dream. The back up camera is spot on. I never have issues when backing up. The radio always gets awesome reception. Never have a problem getting my favorite stations. The truck has so much room. Plenty of space for even my biggest grocery trip. Great headroom even for tall people. Very spacious interior. Features are great

- Shelly P

Perfect vehicle for moms with two children!

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

I have a 2015 Nissan sentra sv. Push to start, manual seating, automatic windows, lots of legroom in the driver's seat and passengers. Plenty of room in the back seat, large and spacious trunk. I have had this car for 3 years and have had no problems at all. I get regular oil changes and maintenance. This vehicle is super comfortable and reliable. Perfect car for me.

- Jaime P

Everything need in a Sedan-Spacious, good gas mileage, built-in technology.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

My car is the perfect sedan. It drives nice, is comfortable, & has a pretty decent size trunk compared to most small cars. It also has good pick up, great gas mileage, and I love the keyless entry. The car has built in Bluetooth to make playing music, or answering calls easy & hands free, as well as both an aux and USB plug-in inside the center console.

- Mal Z

Nissan sentra is a decent starter vehicle.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Nissan sentra 2015 is a good starter vehicle for first time drivers. It has a sporty look to it and has great features such as the eco mode that saves gas and also the built in GPS. The Nissan sentra does has it cons though. Acceleration is not great and also the interior is very tight, especially the back seats. Overall it is a decent vehicle.

- Terence C

Nissan Sentra; great for comfort and reliability

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

I love my vehicle! It is great on performance and really good on gas. It is comfortable to drive and includes features such as heated seats, navigation, and sports/economic drive. The speaker system in the car is perfect and it is also a good car to drive in the snow. I've never had an issue with my Sentra and I had It for 4 years now

- Nancy S

Nissan Sentra SV from CarMax

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

I've had no problems. It has eco and sports mode, it's a push to start, it has a camera for backing up, you can pop the trunk open just by a button on the keys, it has Bluetooth, it's pretty reliable, I've only had it for almost 4 months and it hasn't acted up at all. The seats are comfortable and for a sedan, it's actually spacious.

- Jasmine G

Keyless ignition is the best part about the car.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

My 2015 Nissan sentra is excellent! It is good on gas drives smooth! It has Bluetooth and satellite radio and also CD player. For safety it is keyless entry and also keyless ignition. The car does not display any problems at the moment. I have been having my car for 2 months and it is going great! And I have low monthly car note!

- J K

Nissan Sentra 2015, back up camera and push start button

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Every time I change gears it makes a hard sound. It's reliable and comfortable. Has nice features for being a 2015. It drives well. Not a bad car. I would recommend, especially for the price. I have had it over a couple of years and it is still running well. It came with warranty on many things which is another win situation.

- Amy C

Why Nissan as your next car choice is a good decision

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Good, reliable, sturdy, good gas mileage. I'd recommend this brand. Was first unsure since I've had a Nissan before but was really surprised after driving this car for a year. I'd recommend going to your Nissan dealership and seeing what fits you, but with the friendly service and promotions they offer your in good hands

- Michael G

My vehicle is gun metal gray 4 door sedan

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Love the gas mileage. I love that it is a push button start. Some of the problems that I have ran into in my car is that it takes a while for it to cool off when it is very hot outside. Also another problem is that the air won't ever just turn off and not blow air. Also takes a while to heat up during the winter months.

- Kayla C

one go the biggest details in the car will be the sport and eco button.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

the car is a real money saver, it is reliable to take to places, the model of the car comes with a back camera, touch screen, the seats are comfy and don't stain easily, also the cars comes with Bluetooth which is great for music, text and phone calls. Only problems are the sensors acts up a little here and there.

- hector D

Nissan Sentra for the win!

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

It gets great gas mileage (approximately 30 mpg). It is extremely roomy, especially the back seat (I have really long legs but don't feel cramped when in the back at all). It has Bluetooth and a rear camera to help when backing up. It is not an overly large car, but doesn't feel like a super compact car, either.

- Maile B

Reliable, affordable, good buy!

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

There is a wind sound when you drive over 80 mph on the highway. Car also sits relatively low to the ground. Not a large problem except it can get stuck in the snow relatively easily. Overall I love all of the capabilities the car has. I have had it for close to three years and I have not had any major problems.

- Elizabeth J

Nissan Sentra upgrade seats

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Love the vehicle. The one thing that I was not happy was after a while the seat started feeling uncomfortable and my tailbone started hurting on long trips. They need to upgrade the seats for more comfort. Over all I love the fact that it saves me on gas. The performance is great has not given me any problems.

- Carmen R

My Nissan sentra sv 2015 experience.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Saves on gas and drives great not smooth but just okay. I spend $26 on a full tank. Transmission jerks sometimes. Not a big car but spacious enough but not for a heavy built person. Very lightweight and shaky on a windy day. A backup camera included. FM/AM, Bluetooth, CD, SiriusXM included. Speakers are great.


This has been a great car. I would recommend this car to anyone.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

It's been a great car. I have had no problems that come to mind. It drives great. Has great gas mileage. Perfect size for a sedan. Good amount of space in the trunk. The radio is great with great speakers. Oh and the AC works wonderfully even on the almost 100 degree days that we've been having lately.

- Ashley L

My conclusion I recommend the Nissan Sentra because it's good on gas.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

With my Nissan Sentra, I haven't had any real issues. Just as long you get your schedule oil changes, tire rotations, and maintenance done on your AC kept up, you have very good dependable car. The Sentras are really good on gas, the color of my car is a charcoal gray, that color looks awesome on a Sentra.

- Karen L

My very first Sentra review!

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

The car runs smooth and calm. It is also very good on gas, and the back up camera on it works great. When I first got this car I wasn't sure about the push start on it, but I soon got use to it. This Sentra was my very first new car, and I am so glad that I decided to go with it. I have no cons with it.

- Jamie B

Nissan Sentra 2015, great

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

The Sentra is great. It's great on gas and has an eco setting for my efficiency while driving and also a sport setting which is great to use to pass. The car looks small from the exterior but is very roomy on the inside. The trunk is very large and the car is great for a road trip with one other person.

- Sammy M

Small, economic, and comfortable.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

It performs well and is cheap on gas. It doesn't have a lot of power when accelerating, I would say that is the only downside to it. I love how easy it is to maneuver, make u-turns AND parking. It is a good car for commuters when trying to save on gas but drive comfortably. It has a good sound system.

- Dulce H

I love that it has XM radio.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

The most reliable car I have ever owned. Haven't had any issues with it. Good solid car great gas mileage. Runs great drives even better. Great handling. Picks up and goes. Great safety features. Nice sound system. Lots of trunk space. Plenty of legroom throughout the entire car. Lots of cup holders.

- Brett S

Highlights of the 2015 Nissan sentra sv.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

It is very reliable and has more features than I figured. Gets an average of 32 miles per gallon. I average a little over 300 miles on a tank. Mine has a camera, Bluetooth for which helps me especially while driving when someone calls me. It also has Sirius XM for which I am not that enthused about.


Very wonderful car... great driver. Excellent condition

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Everything is good in great condition. No problems no wrecks and no bumps or any marks. Great vehicle.. it is worth 12k so I am very happy to say that I love my vehicle.. it sits on a great set of 4 new wheels and also 4 new brake pads. Great on gas mileage and only has 40k miles on the engine

- Erica D

Great car for comfortable commuting.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

This car is very comfortable. It has power windows, door locks, keyless entry and cruise control. It also has hands free technology for safety. There have been no problems with this car. It is not the greatest in the snow but does offer traction control. It is good on gas and has an eco option.

- Jessica H

My worst first finance of a vehicle

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

I haven't has this car for a full 2 years , I kept up with the maintenance and now I need a brand new transmission. I might as well get a brand new car. I've also done my research. And the transmissions used for this car is horrible. They constantly go out and several people have complained

- Raven H

It has push start and lock/unlock buttons on the handle, but no sunroof

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

The car is on great shape, but because it's a 4 cylinder, it doesn't drive nice. It's not smooth and it has no power to it. If you're looking for a smooth drive or you like to speed this car isn't it. If you're looking for a car good on gas and will get you places then this car is good.

- Madison G

Perfect starter car for teenager.

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

So far my car has been pretty reliable. If you are going on a long drive the seats are very uncomfortable. The car does pretty good on gas. The trunk area is very spacious. I love the hidden pockets on the front seats. I also love the fact that it has a compartment for my sunglasses.

- Christie L

It's keyless and great on gas

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

My Nissan Sentra has quite a few nice features including comfortable seats, Bluetooth, eco mode, sports mode, and great mpg. The one problem is that at random intervals it takes more horsepower for it to remain a constant speed and when that is happening the car will not accelerate.

- Haley A

The car is great for students or work

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

The car is good on gas but has no power. It also has really big trunk space. I don't like how the speakers aren't loud, they sound staticy after only turning it up halfway. Overall I would I say it's a good car for work or for a someone going to school for the gas mileage.

- Jesus S

Great sedan with great features

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Rides great, very reliable, has XM, steering wheel controls, backup cam. Wish it was a little more roomy though and had power seats. It gets great gas mileage and has a pretty good sound system. Overall very pleased with my Sentra. It's a very easily maintainable vehicle.

- Sarah F

Tough vehicle that is dependable

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

It's a good car. It's very reliable and has been driven through sand, heavy mud, etc and has pulled through each time. I only wish it had seat warmers and a touch screen in it. Those are small cosmetic things though. It is very dependable and will last me a long while:

- Gabby M

Have a 2015 Nissan Sentra SV. It's a great vehicle. The trunk is very spacious!

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

On the trim year I own 2015 Nissan Sentra SV the rubber stripping on both passenger door windows easily came off. Had to replace parts. This the screws in the door frame the rubs and wears the rubber. I've seen plenty cars make and model like mine with the same issue.

- Fallon D

Nissan Sentra SV 2015 White

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

This car is very user friendly. I love how it feels when I drive it. I don't like that it doesn't have a sunroof or seat warmers. That is something that I would have looked for in a car next time. I love the color of it and it has a backup camera which is nice.

- Haley J

Best vehicle for a small family of 3!

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Love my car! It's comfortable, reliable, has never given me problems. Features include, rear view camera, eco-mode, sport-mode, and touch engine. It has enough room for my son's car seat, stroller, and booster. The engine is quiet and saves me money on gas.

- Brisa M

Great car to drive and have! Very dependable

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

Parts sometimes go quick. It's a tough car! I honestly love it. Just drive it a lot. It's a very safe car. If you get all the extras it really helps. The air sensor in the tires is very convenient. The heated seats in the north really help in the winter

- Leah C

Very reliable and dependable Sentra

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

I love everything about my vehicle! It is a very smooth ride and it is incredibly reliable. I have been on many road trips in it in just the year we have had it and we haven't had any issues. I would absolutely purchase again if given the opportunity.

- Sabrina P

Pros and cons of a Sentra

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

The car is good on gas because it has the eco mode, it also has sport mode as well. I'm a mom and I don't like that it's not very spacious so I can't fit 3 car seats in the back seat. I do enjoy the camera when you reverse. The trunk is a good size.

- Roxanne G

Nissan Sentra affordable good car

2015 Nissan Sentra SV

My car has been great so far I've only been driving it for about ten thousand miles so I'm not sure if I will see any problems in the future. It is a smooth ride and I love the backup camera feature it comes with. The interior is nice but can be hot.

- Kaitlyn J

Love the gas mileage and how smooth the car drives. Great for commuting.
