1987 Nissan Sentra from North America
My Sentra didn't like the broken timing belt
The following was due to my own negligence! Inspection recommended I change timing belt (about $200 Can).
Timing belt broke at 180000km. Valve damage seized cylinder head.
Took out cylinder head myself and had it professionally rebuilt ($450)...no use! The car must have suffered some other trauma, because it burnt oil like crazy after replacing cylinder head.
I originally purchased the car used for $1500.
Probably the best car I ever had. Incredibly reliable even in the -30C to -40C Canadian winters without being plugged in.
Though, I still managed to get $500 for the car, I kick myself to this day for not taking car of a true gem!
That's the reason for the sad, blue face!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
