"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!"
"I guess you get what you pay for. I bought this car new in 1997. It was a good buy, at about $12,000. Overall, it has not been a bad car. My major complaints would be that 1) It absolutely EATS brakes, it has had 4 sets of brakes and only 68,000 miles on it and 2) There is something about the design of this car that causes the tires to go out of round, I've been thru quite a few tires. Another very bad feature is that the design of the hubcaps. The holes are so small, it is nearly impossible to get your fingers in to put air in the tires. Also some of the emission control devices are VERY expensive to fix. My worst experience ever was being stranded on the highway somewhere in central Michigan while on vacation. Had to have it towed to Lansing - cost of repair: $850."
