1990 Nissan Sentra SLX (wagon) 1.5 gasoline


This car is a bargain, style, power, comfort and space wrapped in one package


I had the power-steering changed, re-built the engine and serviced the alternator and starter. The only other service is routine maintenance. This car will run forever!

General Comments:

The cabin is roomy, controls fall naturally to the driver's hand. Since I have the wagon I can carry a lot of luggage or other stuff. The only gripe I have is that the air conditioner could have been more powerful.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am the reviewer, I still have the wagon. It has been almost three years of trouble free driving. This fantastic car will start without a fuss on mornings. Do you want a car that will get you to work on time everyday? Then get a Sentra!

Hi, I bought a 1998 Nissan Cefiro A31, and this car is really great - very good on gas, very fast and the ride is smooth.

I am running 18 inch triple chrome rims.

I am looking for a RB25 turbo to replace the RB 20 that I have under the hood right now.

I purchased the Nissan Almera good car takes a lot of work, but no upgrading but still a very good car.

The original reviewer again... I still have the Sentra. Four years and 2 months have passed. I haven't had a complete paint job done yet. She still looks good! The problem with the air conditioner is the improper installation of an a/c system at some point in the vehicle's life plus a weak compressor. A new compressor and new lines etc is in the works... if I keep her into the new year. Still a pleasure to drive and as reliable as the first day I got her. She doesn't cost much to insure or to maintain. Body parts are a bit scarce though.

I am the original reviewer of the 1.5 Sentra wagon. I sold the car in 2011 after 9 wonderful years. I still miss that car. It was practical and economical beyond compare in its class. A lucky guy bought it from me for a really low price.

If Nissan can build another vehicle like that Sentra model, I will be first in line to buy one or maybe two. Come on Nissan, it's time to build a real Nissan in the old tradition of Datsun and Nissan - reliable, economical, fun and reasonably priced.
