I really want to love this car. Did I get a lemon?
Love the Fosgate/Rockford stereo.
Gets about 2 miles less per gallon than my 1995 Sentra under exactly the same driving conditions.
Has less power than the 95 Sentra.
Very little leg room in rear seats.
If you get the sun roof, have a towel handy when going through the car wash.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

It's probably worth noting that Consumer Reports named the Sentra as one of their LEAST reliable small cars of 2006, along with the 5 cylinder Jetta and the Chevrolet Cobalt.
My, my... a Japanese car?

I have a 2005 Sentra sports edition. The one major problem I had so far was the keyless entry remote starting acting up. They eventually replaced the module that controls the keyless entry, and this fixed the problem. This happened a year ago.
I recently noticed that there are a couple of factory recalls on this vehicle. I guess I will have to take it in to have those issues resolved.

Actually, they are made in Mexico. The 2000-2006 Sentra. The two body styles after this are made in Mexico too.
