1994 Nissan Sentra Limited Edition 1.7L from North America
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

Our 1994 Nissan Sentra Limited Edition has been one of the most trouble free cars I have ever owned. It feels nimble and is economical. It is very small, but with the fold down rear seat, one can load long items that extend from the trunk right by the rear bumper up to the dash.
It has electric windows and door locks. It has air-conditioning too. So it really is a convenient car to drive.
A real trooper of an economy car.
Is it impressive or sporty? No, but it's an economy car, right?
