Good performer for the money
A very good car for the money.
I test drove the automatic and manual versions, found the 5-speed was a bit "sportier" and I would recommend it if you are able.
I had a little problem early on with a squeaky belt, took it to the dealer for repair and they oiled it. The problem returned a few weeks later, but the dealer replaced the belt with no fuss.
The Sentra has good gas mileage, especially for highway driving.
Overall a good bargain and surprising performer for the money, especially with the stick shift
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
