The Sentra is a great value car with many advantages
Nothing has gone wrong with car.
The car performs well with the 145 horse power engine. The fuel economy is decent also; I have averaged 29 miles per gallon in mostly city driving.
The car doors close very tightly, the handling is great, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are absolutely the best I have ever experienced.
The Sentra costs thousands of dollars less than Honda Civic, the insurance is less, and the Sentra doesn't have a timing belt to change, which will save even more.
I owned a 1993 Toyota Corolla, which seemed gutless and mushy compared to the Sentra. I had a 1991 Volkswagen Jetta that was quite nice. However, the new Jettas are very expensive, and have some defects because of over-production.
The Sentra SE comes with a sport-suspension, which handles great except for a little bit of stiffness on rough roads. Also, the car has a bit of wind noise at high speeds.
The front seats are very comfortable, although, the rear seats lack leg room. The front head room is much better than previous Sentra models, and better than 2001 models of Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and Nissan Altima.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
