About Nissan Sentra

Nissan’s compact Sentra for 2017 continues a 35-year tradition of offering loads of features in a sporty 4-door that is a cut above the typical small sedan. Inside, the Sentra is not all that much smaller than the midsize Altima, and it offers a number of different personalities ranging from economical basic transportation to an amenity-filled mini-luxury car. There’s even a new turbo model for enthusiast-oriented drivers. The 2017 Sentra sedan is up to date on the latest safety features including available adaptive cruise-control and autonomous-braking systems. Pricewise, the Sentra can cost thousands less than Honda Civic, offers more features than the Toyota Corolla and is as roomy inside as the Hyundai Elantra.

"Overall I am happy with my car. Its a 2015, bought it May 2016 with 13k, now its Jan 2017 with 21k. Ive always had older vehicles mostly suvs. Was looking to buy a new suv but when I checked the Sentra out I was satisfied. Pros: great gas mileage-spacious room-love the look inside and out-Bluetooth works fine with me, both calls and music-backup camera. Cons:driver seat gets very uncomfortable after a while-center console/armrest and glove box isn't very useful-gas cap unlock pull thing is weirdly placed, pulled hood latch mistakenly many times. But over all I'm satisfied with it. Its been dependable, roomy for me my husband and 2 kids."

"2015 brand new. The mileage is good 31 to 33 on Hwy. Storage space in car nonexistent, non functional armrest. Not a comfortable car. Transmission broke on 33k miles in the middle of freeway, luckily it was midnight without traffic. I think they put cheap unreliable material for transmission belt and dealer says it is common."

"I purchased this car after much research and consideration. I needed something with better gas mileage because my truck gets about 10mpg. I have always drove a truck and cars were very foreign to me. This car really has made me happy. I ultimately decided on this car because of the extra inch it sits up off the ground, 6.6 inches, as compared to al the other cars in its class, 5.5 inches. It may not seem like much but going from a lifted truck it meant a lot. Overall the exterior of the car is beautiful. It is classy and stylish but still cute and young. The led lights are a really nice touch and the silver accents on my SL model make the white really pop. My particular car came with a useless spoiler on the back which I guess is supposed to come with the SR version, and all mine does is collect dirt between it and the trunk. Otherwise the exterior is great. Inside, I chose black leather. The seats are very comfortable and adjust in all sorts of ways. The front seats will lay completely flat, which is great for more than just taking naps. You can lay the front passenger seat flat, fold the rear seat down, and now you have enough room to fit something long through the trunk and the rest of the car, super convenient! I have a beautiful color 5.1 inch display in my dash that has Nav, SXM radio, AM/FM, CD, Bluetooth, and even some apps from my phone like google search, Pandora, and facebook. The Bluetooth talking through the car on your phone is great, sound quality is excellent. I do not have the bose sound system but the factory system is excellent. Many reviews have complained that the gauges in the dash seem outdated, but I actually prefer the traditional ones to the digital ones, so it worked for me. plus the dash is beautifully lit with led lights which make it look more sophisticated. the two reading lights in the front are led and there is a very small led light that is constantly on at night which provides just enough light to easily find the cup holders or anything like that. The performance of the car is really nice to me. Some people have complained that the sentra is slow or a slug, I didn't buy a sports car, I bought a car that got great gas mileage. It has 183HP, you cant really expect 0-60 in 5 seconds. The ECO mode is great, I notice a difference when on longer drives, it is supposed to cut the gas intake by a margin so you get better fuel economy, and it does, on the highway. The ECO button isn't meant to be used in the city. The ride is smooth and the car is super quiet. The CVT transmission takes some getting used to after driving a V8 my whole life, you can watch the RPM gauge jump all over the place but you never feel or hear anything in the car. Overall, I am more than happy with my purchase and I would definitely buy this car again."
