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.

Pros: Gas mileage, size, lasts for a long time.

Cons: Looks, expensive maintenance, fragile.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Interior and exterior were more appealing than Civic and Corolla of that time

Cons: Small interior space

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: zippy engine, great handling, great gas mileage, fun factot.

Cons: looks bland,

Nessie The Nissan — We bought this car second hand 5 years ago, so it is now 12 years old. There are 276,000 KM on this little car and apart from new winter and new summer tires we have spent about $3000.00 on it in 5 years. Cannot complain about it. The ride is good, handling is good, it's zippy and we like the looks.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Compact, economical, zippy.

Cons: As the person who drives it the most I find that being long in the leg is a bit of a problem.  Unless I extend my left leg all the way it bumps up against the door handle (the part that holds the window controls etc.).Also, it's a little low to the ground which makes it difficult to get in and out of... I have arthritis in my knees.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.

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

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Economical and fun to drive

Cons: Power windows

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable and efficient

Cons: Not great for highway driving

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

Cons: Nothing so far.
