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: Great milage

Cons: nada

Nissan Sentra Se '01 — Decent ride with some zip for its class, with a 2.0 under that little hood. Sick new Pioneer sound system with MTX subs powered by Profile, all installed by yours truly. Wonderful handling but you can't find any half decent tires in the '01 Sentra SE's size. Bottom line, Go for a Mazda3s if you're in this range. You can get many premium features not found in other compacts and still stay in the 20k area. Mazda3s's bang to buck ratio is amazing. See also Volkswagen Jetta and Chevrolet Cobalt. While we're on the subject of Nissans though, if your budget touches the range of the Altima SL, nothing else comes close.

Drives Smoothly — Inexpensive car that rides well and has nice interior features. Quicker than you might think for a normally-aspirated vehicle. Reliable and safe to drive, will last me for hopefully quite some time.

Pros: You can do alot to the SR20DE engine.

Cons: No ABS, tires blow.

Better Then A Corolla, Funner Than A Civic — I owned this car for 5 months and loved every second i was in there. Great sounding engine, Easy to drive and manuever around traffic. Amazing on Gas. Can fit that family of 5!

Pros: Great Gas Mileage, handling, and overall driving dynamics

Cons: lack of 3rd party accessories

Great Value Easy Handling — Easy handling. Great Visibility, no blind spot. Easy parking, maneuvering. Good fuel economy. Very reliable and long lasting car with few costs. Maintains value well. Not enough seat space up front for tall guys. Engine is not that powerful, but good for the kind of car and the time. Paint peeling off.
