1986 Nissan Sentra 5 door Sprint 1.3 GL


A great runner, will last for years!


The two front head lights blew while travelling on the dual-carriageway at night. due to the previous owner putting the wrong bulbs in. had to replace whole units.

Brakes failed going through a round-about.Only happened once... thank god!

3 windows will not wind down- due to lack of usage.

Leak in radiator- can't be bothered fixing.

Automatic choke is broken... have to press pedal to start.

General Comments:

This car is actually the best car I have ever owned. Even though it is like steering a 52 seater bus because there is no power steering it sticks to the road.

I bought the car for 250euros and it flew the NCT after lying up for nearly 2 years.

Not very good at going up hills and the engine screams over 65MPH, but it would run on the smell of petrol.

NO back seat belts, or fog lamps, 1 music speaker, but its everything you want in a car.

Parts are impossible to find and expensive to buy... so look after your car and it'll be a great friend.

Smokes more than a house on fire, but its fun watching pedestrians coughing and spluttering when driving through a town.

Very fast take off when you push it... but its not made for that..just cruise. for a car that's near 21 years on the road its fantastic!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
