1988 Nissan Sentra SGS 1.6 petrol four
Not worth the trouble
Seats were already quite worn when I first bought the car, but it got worse as the days went by.
Radiator started leaking at 166000 kms, so was overheating, and then caused the next problem, which was the head gasket blew just 2000 kms later.
Around 170000kms, the car would be hard to start when warm, and after 3 goes, the car would flood.
When cold, the choke would have a mind of its own, so would have to use the accelerator to warm it up.
The seats wore quite quickly, and the dashboard faded in parts, so you could tell the different plastics.
The car was good on trips into town, but felt underpowered compared to my previous 1.6 Corolla.
Overall, I dreaded owning my Sentra, and would not consider buying another vehicle from this manufacturer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
