"I've owned my 2001 Nissan for 10 years now and can honestly say, out of the four previous cars I've used and/or owned, this has been the best experience. With minor care- mostly in tire issues and some fluid hoses (air intake and A/C)- I've been able to run over 200K miles on my car. That it's lived through at least four different states and it still be in working order without me having to be at the auto shop every month is amazing! Plus, it has seen me through bumper accidents (plural), only one of which a car actually damaged it by backing into the corner of my bumper and so ripping one side loose. Compared to my first car, in which the bumper shattered upon light impact, I count that a win! Although the plastics used in this car are not ideal (TX heat made sun roof sliding handle brittle, for ex.) and, as others have said, the body does tend to wear a bit (some repainting usually needed about every 6-8 years with this car, and had some repeated issues with tire deflation due to wearing on inside of a tire), I would definitely recommend this car to new drivers, economy drivers, or even regular travelers as it's reliable, gas friendly, and has very easy steering. Great price too! Just wish it held value a bit more. Next car will either be another Nissan or a Honda with similar specs."
"This car has always taken care of me and has never left me stranded on the road. It has been a very reliable car. I loved it. It has never caused me any problems at all. I would recommend it to anyone who needed a dependable gas saver."
"This is my second Sentra, and has never ever let me down once. I average 30.6 mpg, and it's been the best car I've ever owned. No problems at all. I'm just bored with it, and want a small SUV, Rouge, or Juke next."
"I bought the vehicle at 43K miles, and have owned it for 6 years. Car now has 135K on it. While overall, it has been very reliable and has served it's purpose more than adequately (I use it for work, driving around the city to check on jobs), it has had several mechanical problems which have been expensive and ultimately caused me to have to replace it. First problem it has was cylinders misfiring. I had coils changed (which cost around 1K), and problem came back shortly thereafter. Several coils were changed again. Problem still returned. A tuneup at least got the check engine light not to go on again, but was advised it was probably just a matter of time before it happened again by my mechanic. The final straw was that apparently it has developed a crack in the engine somewhere which is causing it to lose coolant. Was advised by mechanic to start thinking about a new vehicle, as I would most likely need major engine work fairly soon."
