Pros: "she's too old now for comparisons sake, but great"

Cons: "very little storage in the back"

"This car has been amazing imo. Very little work done, nothing major and honestly, the way I drive, about an oil change every 9 months or so. Very little maintenance needed has meant only 60 dollars a year avg or less for this car's history with me. I've enjoyed having this car and for having so little worry concerning problems."

Just lost my Sentra. Loaned it and they wrecked it

Pros: "great mileage, reliability, value"

Cons: "Not fast"

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

"I had the car sine 98. 255K miles;avg 35 mpg reliable, never fast but always got me where I needed to go. Don't know what I will do now about medical treatments in Balt.She got me there every time without complaint. Great air cond too.Great value for the money. Loaned it to someone to attend his wkly meetings.He wasn't paying attention and rear ended someone @ 40 mph.My poor old girl is gone.I won't get much if anything for her as mileage too high. Cannot buy another one right now.She was so much more valuable then the KBB listing to me. It is devastating to me. No good deed goes unpunished I guess."

"I have a 1998 Sentra SE with the 2.0 liter engine. I drive it a lot -- so will focus on maintenance issues. I've gone through about 4 alternators -- Nissan no longer makes these, and rebuilt/aftermarket ones aren't reliable. Front struts replaced. Both front half axles replaced (boots had torn and that screwed up things). Transmission -- 1st gear synchro shot and some of the bearings weren't that happy -- rebuilt. Paint is showing some rust at some of the body joints. I decided to get the check engine light problems fixed - caused by problems in the purged-canister system -- seems that mechanics did not have a grasp of repairing this system. Engine doesn't have its original power, but this whole car likes highway speeds(75-80 mph). Does not burn oil. Have slight overheating problem in summer with AC on -- mechanics have not been able to diagnosis the cause. Radio is a piece of junk. Haven't seen many of these Sentras on the road lately."

"Today is june 19, 2015 and it has 206,556 miles! I bought the car used at 35,000 miles in 2000. mechanically it has and still is great. both sun visors broke. I have always changed the oil at 3,000 miles and since the day I bought it have only put Chevron gas with the exception of 5 times. My car was assembled in Mexico! the only major repairs done have been the radiator, fuel pump/filter, oxygen sensor and ignition switch. Consumer reports states the late 90s are very reliable than the 2015s. I have one of the good ones I guess."

"This was the best year for Nissan Sentra GXE limited Edition! No engine problems, reliable and fun to drive. In the last year have replaced alternator, and Right Radiator fan assembly and added FREON get really COLD now! I would keep it but I just got an excellent deal for a 2012 Nissan VersaS.....good friend will be buying this from me because he knows how well it was taken care of."

"This car has been the most reliable car and I always know it will start. I just drive too much for my job now and the car is staring to have too many miles. I do notice that Nissan Sentras (this is my 2nd one) don't always have the best electrical systems on the interior. Otherwise...I will surely miss this car (and 99 was rated very high in Consumer Guide when I bought it in 2003 -rated better than 2000)"
