"I've had my Sentra for almost 6 months. It drives well and seems to be a good car. It has more room than the civic and the cloth seats look better. My only complaint is the black paint. It has a ton of scratches and I don't know where they came from."
"I driven this vehicle for 6mths and about 10,500 miles. It is comfortable and handles well. The leather interior seating is nice (get the black color) and the Intelligent Keyless entry and ignition is well worth the upgrade for convenience and security.
The handsfree, onboard bluetooth works great for verbal comand dialing; however, I found it drops calls about 10% of the time. When it drops a call I cannot hear the other party but they can still hear everything going on in my car - including my voice and whatever was playing on my radio/CD before I made the call - be careful!
As others have noted, the interior door panels scratch too easily and they are very noticeable - haven't tried to remove them yet.
I also miss having a rear windshield wiper, especially on frosty mornings or during hard rains.
One feature that is also nice is the mpg calculator - one can obtain an overall 2-3 mpg increase by being gentle on the accelerator.
DIY oil changes, or using other service providers are problematic - you must buy the oil filters from your dealer and provide them to your own mechanic - hopefuly this will change soon."
"The interior panels on the doors scratch incredibly easy. There are no way to remove these scratches per the dealer. Scratches occur from feet on the door, handbags, laptop bag etc - all things that have never scratched any other vehicle interior I have owned. Looks beat up already and its only 6 months old."
"I have had a few issues with the quality of this cars interior. The paint around the sound system is peeling off, the glove box door has broken off its hinges and I have only opened it twice and the trunk lock actually fell out and I had to take it in for service.
Though the car is very compact I have to say it has an unbelievable amount of head room. I had to slump down in the car I used to own to keep my head from touching the roof. In this Sentra I can sit upright and still have room left.
The only reason I dont give this car 5 stars for value is becuase I paid a $2000 current market value fee, I suppose due to gas prices and it being a compact car."
"I bought my Sentra 2.0SL back in late March and I am very happy with my purchase! It has a lot of great extras such as handsfree bluetooth, intelligent key, lots of storage, and other extras. I bought the Magnetic Gray with the black leather interior. I average about 30MPG. I also love the gearshift location and use my Ipod in the auxilary plug in which I like. Interior molding does mar easily, so beware of that. Otherwise I am completely satisfied and would recommend this car to anyone shopping for a midsize car with great gas mileage and lots of amenities that you may only find on some other pricier models. I have already put 7500 miles on my Sentra and not a single issue to be had."
"I purchased a 2.0 S Sentra back in March and so far so good. My only compaint like many others have had is the plastic hey used for the interior scratches easily, with a fingernail, anything that touches it leaves a nice white mark...I wish I could get those out!"
