Very good starter car for teens and young adults. Small and gas efficient.

There are no problems with my car. It is performance is outstanding!! It gets 30 mpg so you do not have to get gas every week or so. I get gas every 2-3 weeks. Very reliable, more of a starter car for teens and young adults. It is a compact that fits 5, adjustable steering wheel, adjustable seat moving forward and backward towards the steering wheel, and most of all my favorite is that the seat moves up and down. I am very short and cannot see over the steering wheel in most vehicles, this is prime. They have heated seats in the front. There are two USB ports in the back of the middle console for passengers to charge their electronic devices. 7 speakers all around the car. Cruise control is pretty cool. You get to a speed you want and set it at that speed, then it will slow down or speed up based off of the car in front of you, and has automatic stopping when to close to another car. This car does that even when no on cruise control, it has a beep that sounds when your going to fast and there is another car in front of you and your not slowing down enough. If you do not slow down it will emergency brake for you.

Advantages of owning a Push button Nissan Sentra

I like the sleek body style of the 2018 Nissan Sentra. It is red and looks great when freshly washed. It is a push button start car with what I think is called a smart key. This means all I do is push the start button while holding the brake down it will start. Also as long as I am close to the car with my key there is a little button on the door handle that allows me to open the car. I love the dashboard capabilities. It is Bluetooth enabled so you can use all your electronic devices including your tablet and cell phone. The interior is roomy with lots of leg and head room. The steering wheel is adjustable according to your height. The front seats are very easy to maneuver backward and forward. There is also a anti collision indicator which lets you know when you are getting too close to another car. The trunk space is deep and plentiful.

Nissan Sentra tops Honda Civic.

I previously leased a Honda Civic 2015 and I prefer my Nissan Sentra 2018 so much more. The steering wheel on the Sentra is so light and steady compared to the Civic which makes turning so effortless. One of my favorite things about my new car is the quality of the Bose speakers installed, it sounds amazing! I love blasting my music and it makes the drive so much more enjoyable because the sound quality is excellent. A couple of things I do not particularly love about the Sentra is how loud the engine is when I press on the gas. Another aspect to be improved on is gas mileage. My 2015 Civic definitely had better gas mileage than the Sentra. I live in southern ca and with the gas prices here, I typically spend $35 to $40 for a full tank.
