Summary:

The best

Faults:

Nothing except for the usual wear and tear.

I replaced the clutch at 100,000 miles and 211,000 miles.

I replaced the rack and pinion because I lent my car to someone and they went 4-wheeling in the desert!!

General Comments:

I LOVE MY CAR! It is incredibly reliable and the engine is still kicking!! I have taken it in for regular maintenance, e.g. oil changes, tune-ups and it is still getting great gas mileage!

I have spoken to mechanics (non-Nissan mechanics) and they have found that the Sentras's engines are very reliable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also have the same car (1992) and am just as satisfied as you are, I know what you went through, unbeatable reliability.

Do you know your next car is going to cost a lot to match this now?

Is that good or bad?
