Trusty, safe, forgiving, great kid's starter car
Bought used for $3k.
Daughter's accident - bumper, front fenders replaced 2000.
Daughter's accident - tee-boned - front end, radiator, suspension replaced. Everything from the rear window back replaced. Now on a salvage title obviously... 2006.
Transmission lost 1st gear and replaced 2010.
Daughter not driving it anymore, it has never given me a problem without a warning in the sub-division. Replaced belts, alternator, starter, etc as needed.
It's been a great sales tool for the neighborhood parents looking for a car to send kids off to college. I've even been offered $4k for it just last month (Jan 2011).
Will buy another Sentra if/when this 1994 finally dies in 2020!
Best $3k I ever spent!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
