"I find the Sentra SE with the 2.0 engine to be one of the most underrated cars of the 1990s. It has the same engine as the now discontinued Infiniti G20...but weighs less. The engine is very responsive, sounds great, and there was't a car back then under 20k that handled like the SE...even today, it handles very well compared to the competition. I'd recommend this as a perfect used car as well...very well built, before IMHO Nissan went and got cheap after the new relationship with Renault."
"Car does eat breaks. Especially SE model which has disk breaks all around. Can be expensive to fix (sensors, exhaust) My trunk leaks and I have heard from others with the same problem. It shorted out my harness in the trunk and cause major electrical headaches. Other than that... I bought it used and I absolutely love the car. My Nissan dealership has always been a pleasure to deal with."
"i have had my sentra since june 2004 and i love it. its fun to drive and very reliable. this car is great on gas i get about 28-30 miles per gallon! i have put a lot of miles on my car since i got it about 63000 and the only complaint i have found is i have changed the alternator 3 times in 3 years i dont know if its just my car but thats the only thing! i have kept it in good shape and it has been in an acciedent with a acrua integra and was bearly damaged! not as bad as it felt! i would recommend this car as a great 1st car!!!! for the value it is great!!! i love it!"
