"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."
Cons: "not a sexy car, does the minimum, can rust easily"

"I'm not a huge car person, so I just need to get from Point A to Point B. My Sentra has done this for 14 years now. I bought it in the midwest and have lived on both coasts and now in Hawaii and it has been the one constant in all my moves. While it's certainly seen better days, it continues to run efficiently and meet my needs."
"We bought this car off a rental lot 6 1/2 years ago and my wife used it for daily commuting. We had no trouble with it at all. It never left her stranded and required minimal maintenance. The car is now about 9 years old and I would sell it to a friend without any qualms. Very reliable, great gas mileage and has had no major problems."
Pros: "Good price, good mileage, fun to drive, well-built"
Cons: "no cons unless you need/want the new electronics"

"This is a marvelous little car. I've had it for 14 years, and it's reliability is awesome. I've had very little problems with it, and not a lot of repairs -- just the routine stuff. It still drives like the day I drove it off the showroom floor. This is a great car for the money - reliable, very comfortable, convenient. It gets good mileage, and just keeps truckin' like a real trooper. I wouldn't trade this car for anything."
