2002 Nissan Sentra GXE from North America
Heartache you don't need
-Dip stick broke off while changing oil
-Engine over heats like mad
-Thermostat needed to be replaced 4 times. Kept cracking.
-Head gasket busted
-Window washer fluid reservoir brackets broke
-Small backseat. Can barely fit my 2 year old son in.
-Engine light keeps coming on for spark plugs, but nothing wrong with them.
Ran nice for about 2 years and then I watched all my money getting poured into it for repairs. Don't get this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The same thing happen to me! dip stick broke off and Jiffy lube put it back in broken!!!
My engine turned off while I was driving and now they are saying there was a recall on the ECM foam lining. all the things that happen were EXACTLY what happen to my car, so they replace the foam, but tell me oh your ECM is bad. My car is not old enough to have a messed up computer. I'm fighting with nissan that the foam lining that wasnt replaced (because I was never told about the recall) caused my ECM to fail. I have had such a headache with this call. 2 months already that its been broken and doesn't help I work 20+ miles from home. NEVER getting a nissan ever again!

I just pawned this car off on a dealership to get a Toyota Rav4. Right before I tried to trade it in, I discovered more problems. The coolant reservoir was leaking, the spare tire was flat (I never used it so it may have been a time thing), blew another thermostat, and the ABS indicator light kept coming on and off sporadically.
Thank God Toyota didn't notice these problems. LOVE the RAV4!!!
