1993 Nissan Sentra E from North America
Amazing and reliable car
Brakes are going/gone.
For a first car this was amazing. It's always gotten me to where I needed to go and even though there are currently many things I need to attend to, it still runs amazingly. If it wasn't for the lack of airbags, destroy headlight and broken trunk - I'd probably keep it longer. Sadly I don't think Nissan will ever come up with a car like it. Sentra E coupes have more character than the newer 4 door Nissan's and their sportier cars just don't suit my needs, its onto Honda's for myself.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My 93 Sentra has very serious oil leak problem that I could not even park it on the street. Besides, the acceleration is really sluggish. I mean, people stare at me in every intersection where I stopped and tried to move on again. My wife refused to drive it anymore because it is so embarrassing and dangerous too when you need to make a bypass on the highway. In terms of saving gas, it is great. But you do have to take other things into consideration...
Hmmmm, that last comment was interesting.
My 93 Sentra with 161000 on it can turn up the tires coming off a stop with no problem. If I bang second gear, then the clutch (new one) slips and that tells me something ie: I'm driving it too hard.
My fuel mileage is great, the front end still tight though both drive axles have been replaced. That's like half an hour to 45 minutes each once the car is on blocks. Oh, the complete assemblies each including spline, outer and inner CV joints is like 75 dollars.
Nope I love my car, AC still works fine. Had to replace both radiator fans (Engine and AC condenser) again 75 dollars each and 15 minutes work.
Clutch went out at 148K, 600 there, I ain't tossing no 400 pound trans axle from a creeper any more. Had the rear main oil seal replaced as well at the time.
Nope, mine is still running fine and getting 40 MPG highway and 36-38 combined highway/city.
One pint of oil every 2500 miles and all is well.
