"This Nissan has been good to me and parts of my family. The outside and inside are both simple. It's brakes are perfectly fine, don't need replacing. It saves you on gas very well, you can pull off sharp turns if needed. Headlight covers are of a foggy or misted texture, doesn't need any light replacements, original white painted exterior, original mats are still within the Nissan, grey interior, spacious trunk and inside cab, enough room for five persons, original radio"

"Don't buy this car. Unreliable, in the shop all the time. Head Gaskets went, with 3400 still owed on the loan. I had already replaced the radiator, exhuast system, tirod, and thermometer( not once, but twice in two years i owned it). terrible for reliability."

Pros: "great price and fun to drive"

Cons: "engine mount."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I love this car. It is extremly reliable. The only problem i had was had to replace two engine mounts which was a recall item. My car has 130,000 miles on it and I have put in about 3500 worth of repairs since I bought it. Luckily it doesnt have the problem with the timing belt which has to be replaced ever 100,000 miles. I thought the mechanic was lying, but turns out its true. Very reliable and not bumpy like the accord."
