1998 Nissan Sentra GXE 1.6 from North America
I bought this car new. It did not give any problems until 60,000 miles, but started giving some problems later on. Brakes had to be changed, belts also need replacement and suddenly one day the battery and the emergency brake light started showing up. Took it to Brake Max and they mentioned that the alternator had gone bad. I could not believe it!!. My other Japanese car still has the original alternator even at 110,00 miles. Brake Max charged $350/- to replace the alternator. The power steering pump also had problems. I really don't think I will buy a Nissan again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

No problem with my nissan sentra, nice to drive, simple, a great commuter vehicle, a gas saver and a nice comfortable ride.
A nice CD player, and that it all I had to invest on.. great little car.

All of the problems you describe are regular maintenance items, I do not understand your complaint. You should try your hand at home repair, you can save a lot of money on regular maintenance like that.
