1997 Nissan Sentra GXE 1.6L I4
Eminently practical, if entirely non-sexy
The clutch began to chatter badly at about 75,000 miles. It subsequently began to slip at approximately 90,000 miles. I'm not surprised, since I bought it as a former rental car. Besides, it's over 96,000 now, and the clutch is still hanging on by its fingernails.
The left front wheel bearing also began to vibrate at about 95,000 miles. It's no big deal, since it's a $40 part.
Let's face it. This is not a hot, fast or otherwise sexy car. It is, however, extremely reliable and highly fuel efficient. They're also inexpensive to pick up. It's just a practical car.
If you really feel the need to customize or tune this car, there are many upgrade and perfomance parts available for all Nissan B16 engine cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
