One Of The Best 4 Bangers — mine is 2001 sentra se with 2.0 sr20de motor. what can i say, the sr20 is one of the best 4 cylinder motor out there. i bought mine with 94k miles 2 years ago. now has 154k miles on it.no problem so far except for regular oil change, tires and brakes. and, i always drive it like i stole it. handles great on twisty mountain, redline to almost 7k also feels fun. i know the engine will outlast the car's life.

2001 Nissan Sentra — Performance - For a 4-banger with an automatic, its pretty quick. Can get out of its own way getting onto the freeway. A/C on makes it a little more difficult, but not bad. Build Quality - I have 3 rattles/buzz'. 2 of them are reflections of the car's age (80K miles) but one has been around since the passenger window motor failed after a month of ownership. I think the dealer forgot to put in some foam between two pieces of metal. Only repairs that have been needed that were not recalls or under warranty/wear was the Mass Air Flow sensor. It failed at 79k miles. Appearance - Outside is utilitarian and unremarkable. Mine would look better if my ex would have washed it from time to time. The car is mine now as I have a longer commute and I don't have any payments. Cost of ownership - I average 28mpg with the A/C on. With it off, I average 35. If I am on the freeway, I get 30 with the A/C and 36 without. Fun Factor - I like the little car. It handles pretty decent and I know enough of how little cars like this drive to really push it to its limits. I have shocked more than one "performance car" by passing it on the outside of a 40mph curve, doing close to 65.

Pros

Quick little car. Not the fastest thing around, but better than average.

Cons

Nothing so far.

45

Great Little Four Door. — Fun little car to drive. Surprisingly quick to me on the takeoff. Really easy to customize and great gas mileage. I went from a truck to this, so it was a completely different experience, but after two years, I'm thoroughly impressed.

Sr20 Love — Well had my baby for about 4 years now and I love it!! Car has excellent performance and the sr20de helps out alot. Gets great gas mileage average about 30mpg. This car is a blast to drive then again all the mods dont hurt either.

Small And Fragile — It is a great car for the money, it lasts for up to 300,000 miles or more. Great gas mileage. But when something on it needs to be fixed it always seems like I have to spend my whole pay check on it.

Sentra 2001 Gxe, Would Buy Again — This car has been great and very reliable. Problems with the Mass Air Flow though 2 times. So as soon as car looks affected by humidity, go directly to garage to check Mass Air Flow because it won't improve and will get stock on the streets. Other than that, great car, not expansive to maintain.

Pros

Nissan, great company and can really take the abuse by my son.

Cons

The normal nissan engine problems and the fact that the dealership over priced this car by a lot.

45

Alright Family Car — Can take the abuse of a family. Working on the car is fairly easy and minor jobs can be done by one self. The parts are not too expensive. The car can move when needed it. Would never buy another one from the same dealership that i bought it from, but other then that the car has been great for what my family and i have needed.

Good, Dependable Drive And Ride Is Ok — Peppy for a 4 cylinder and gets 29 MPG hwy. Fit and finish average and it has aged well. Issues with power windows has been the downside as both front ones have given problems and required repair. Clear coat beginning to show its age

It Get's Me From Point 'a' To Point 'b' But Not My First Choice Of Vehicle — The Nissan Sentra has been in my family since it was new, and I can say it has been a good car. Although having a few normal repairs done on it (brakes, shocks, etc.) it has been pretty reliable. It has decent acceleration at low speeds, but is more slugish on the highway when passing. All in all a good driving experience although not very exciting.
