This was my first car and the best car that I have ever had. I would highly recommend this car for long term use. I have never had any problems with it, except for a dead battery. I regret the day that I traded it in.

I Love My Car! — I have a 2004 Nissan Sentra Spec-V and I LOVE it. I brought the car w/13 miles on the meter and now I have almost 170K. I've had little problems that were easily repairs here and there otherwise i love my car. There was a recall on the 2005 Sentra that affect my 2004 Nissan "fixed" the issue but never did really. I can't remember exactly what the problem was but it had something to do with a hard start. I got married 5 years later and my father in law fixed the problem immediately. The fuel housing was defective - he found that out accidently. Got a new one ($230) and never had the problem again. A few years later I had a crack in my catalytic converter that I got welded ($350). My o2 sensor went bad got that replaced ($80). Routine oil changes and maintenance and my car has never let me down.

Pros: Great car for a single person!

Cons: Now that I'm married w/2 kids I've run out of space.  :(

The Good, The Bad, No Ugly — With only 220,000 miles and only the miniscule amount spent on a belt replacement, brakes (once, at 170,000), three sets or tires and lots of gas, this car keeps on chugging. I'm looking for a slight upgrade, but will most likely stick with a Nissan Sentra again. Why change now?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Exceptional reliability and fuel economy.

Cons: Small back seats.  Limited power.

Nissan Sentra Se-r Spec V — Performance is great on the track. Car handles extremely well and braking is outstanding. Car is very well built. Have never left me on the side of the road or given me any major problems. I will say that I love driving this car whether it be on the track or around town. Definitively a fun car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The suspension and brake upgrade definitively give it the edge on the track.

Cons: My only complaint is that I wish it had more power.

Cute Little Money/gas Saver! — I got this car for my 16th birthday and this little black Sentra has been very faithful and reliable to me. I have been very happy with the gas prices and mpg this car gets. The only reason I am wanting to sell this car is because I am graduating this year and i want to buy a new car for my graduation present to myself. I'm telling you, you will also be very impressed and pleased with this car's gas mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great AC and heater, great gas mileage, only $40 to fill all the way up!!!!! Power windows, power lock,  When the keys are in the ignition the car wont let you lock yourself out if a door is open, manual seat adjusting, 5 seat, 4 door

Cons: needs a new starter but i am getting that done before selling it

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good on gas, pretty comfy...
