2001 Nissan Sentra GXE 1.8L from North America
This car is nothing but a money pit!
I noticed that when I would start it in the morning, it could idle CRAZY; it was not normal.
I had the car checked out, and I was told the O2 sensors were bad. I fixed that, and it did nothing to the car.
I was then told it was the mass air flow sensors; fixed that, and it still wasn't that.
Then I was told my alternator was bad, I fixed that, and it still didn't help, and this is the car's 3rd one!!!
I was then told my bank O2 sensor was shot; fixed that, and the car ran fine for about 2 days.
I took it back in and was told my computer is bad in the car; fixed that, and it still doesn't run right.
I get very, very poor gas mileage as well.
The guy also told me that the fuel injectors were bad; fixed that too, and it did nothing!
This car has been nothing but problems from day one.
I have put over $1,500 into the car, and it still doesn't run right.
I have no idea what to do now.
The radio that was in it stopped working.
The car jerks at around 45-55mph, but stops when you take it out of overdrive.
It idles very poorly when you are at a red light, but when you take it out of gear, it idles fine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Which grade of gas were you using?
Obviously, the mechanics you were taking your car to don't know how to properly diagnose a problem. They were just getting you to throw parts at the problem and hoping it would go away. A proper mechanic would have done a thorough diagnosis of the problem, and actually checked parts and wiring to see what was causing the problem.
