2000 Nissan Sentra Overview

Based on 7 reviews
Striving to be thought of as more than just an economy subcompact, the 2000 Nissan Sentra gets a complete makeover and resizing this year that helps move it into the compact segment, and an improved suspension and engine that turns city commutes into something to look forward to.
Now longer than both the Civic and Corolla, the 2000 Sentra gains 6 inches in length, 2 cubic feet inside its cabin and nearly a cubic foot in its trunk. It receives upgrades to its interior materials and gets body-colored bumpers and grille for a sportier look. A stiffer platform improves handling and safety considerations and hopefully reduces some exterior noise. The 2000 Sentra also gets a new engine in its base model XE and GXE, which now carry a 1.8-liter, 126-hp I4. The sports-oriented SE, which features bigger tires and brakes, a rear spoiler, and side sills, zips around the roads with a 2.0-liter, 145-hp I4. A 5-speed manual is standard on all trims, with the option for a 4-speed automatic. Also new this year is the 2000 Sentra CA, the first car to receive the Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle rating (SULEV). Designed only for California, 500 of the CAs were produced in 2000.
The base XE is, well, pretty base, but the GXE comes equipped with power features, a CD player, and cruise control. Dual front airbags are standard, with side curtains an option. ABS brakes are available for the GXE and SE. Another option is a split-folding rear seat, though owners say the opening to the truck isn't big enough. Though the GXE is the most popular model because of its features, drivers say the SE is the most fun to drive. Gas mileage (27/35 mpg) is another highlight, as is the overall smooth ride. The engine on the 2000 Nissan is very durable and seems to last forever. Criticisms point out the small rear seat (normal for a compact), the ugly seat fabric choices, and repair problems with the catalytic converter and various sensor failures.
