1998 Nissan Sentra GXE 1.6 from North America
Is a beautifull car, economic and strong
I have noticed that the front glass wiper was worn when I first bought the car, so I had to change the rubbers only. Engine is Noiseless, ignition is excellent and still as is, but I face some delay in shifting to Gear 2 and 3 when the car is speeding on traffic, I need to press the clutch deeper to accelerate the car, but this sometimes cause the engin to bring noise and no acceleration occurs, this is bothering to me.
There is crust forming on the lower parts of the engine since I bought it. This is not a problem though.
This car is kind of very rare in my place, I live in the Middle East and have trouble finding spare parts, I wondered sometime of Nissan Sunny pieces replace for Sentra GXE? this is not related to the car performance though.
The car is nice, with good interior, comfortable to ride and is economic. I want to keep it when spare parts problem is figured out. I would love advice for maintenence and spare parts for this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Check your clutch cable under the hood. It's a thumb wheel at the end of the clutch cable. 2 turns should be enough to raise the clutch up on the pedal to resolve the shifting issue. Did it on mine the other day and the car doesn't clunk into gear anymore. Smoothed out my shifting a lot. I used to have to try the clutch 2 times before shifting into reverse before it would pop into gear with a clunk. Tightened the clutch cable, and voila, all fixed and I can change gear way easier now.
