2012 Nissan Sentra from North America


Great car, but has blind spots and a small trunk opening


I have had my Nissan Sentra for 4 years. It drives smoothly. The only complaints I have are that there are a lot of blind spots and the opening to the trunk is too small.

I have had no repairs done to this car and it runs great!! It is comfortable and roomy inside. Yes, I would buy another Sentra. In fact, the 2016 Sentra has a better trunk opening and the blind spots are a little better, but they are still there around the side mirrors. It's a great little car for the money.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I do not believe for a second such review. I drive one with 20000 miles and the transmission is already slipping and being erratic, the rear suspension got too soft, the steering feels weird, and there is a clonk on the front left suspension.

We have the same model year as the reviewer and it has the CVT. The car gets driven every day and has almost 100k miles on it so far, and we have had to do literally nothing but basic maintenance such as oil changes and alignments.

The CVT purrs like it did from day 1. Having a CVT "slip" is not really a thing unless you have abused the heck out of it or got a faulty one.

This car is awesome!


With my new car, everything is still running perfectly.

This car is pretty nice.

The car runs very well and smooth. You feel like you're just floating on air.

The car is more spacious than I thought it would be.

The factory radio plays well.

At this mileage it is too early to comment. Wait a few more months.

Please stop comments such as is too early to comment or have you test driven the car. It brings nothing to the discussion. Everybody has the right to express his first impressions, regardless of the reliability.

I've got 48k on mine and had it in for rear brake cylinders. Both sides replaced under warranty. Creaking noise at low speed on the rear passenger side. Not happy with the seats either. Otherwise good so far.

Nissan seats are terrible with a lack of lumbar support
