Where do I begin?
A few days after I purchased the car, the exhaust pipe came apart and the car started stalling.
My father put the exhaust pipe back together and my previous mechanic figured out why the car was stalling.
It turns out that the Sentra needed a new fuel injector and a tune up. It also needed two brand new front tires because the old ones were uneven, causing the car to shimmy at speeds of 65 mph.
A month after those repairs were addressed, the transmission started going on me and it wouldn't be long before the car would die completely and believe me, it did.
After blowing $600 on the Nissan and investing well over $300 into it, I was not going to have the transmission rebuilt.
My father and I test drove the car before I bought it. My previous mechanic even checked it over and told me that I purchased a good vehicle before he changed the oil. Turns out that I was ripped off by rich folks who had money to wipe with and they decided to jimmy rig a vehicle, just so they could get $600 for it.
I even babied the car during my ownership.
I replaced it a few days ago with a 2006 Hyundai Elantra and I ended up getting $2,000 for my crappy Sentra. I will feel sorry for the poor sap who gets it next.
I never had a problem with the engine, aside from the stalling issue and that never occurred again after the new fuel injector was installed.
For a vehicle that was owned by one family for 13 years, they could have taken better care of it. Heck, I even had some of the maintenance records.
It was a decent car, until the transmission started making an annoying clicking noise. It was all downhill from there and not even Lucas Anti-Slip could save it.
I will never buy another used car.
