Good For The Average Person — I wish I had gotten an SE-R, but I couldn't find one. I'm improving performance soon by installing coilovers and getting fully bolted by next year. There's also a supercharger in development that I may get when my warranty is up. The car is rly peppy and gets good gas mileage, so intend on keeping it no matter what. Unless I total it...lol.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good gas mileage, nice interior

Cons: cvt drone, kinda slow

My Back-up Car — The Nissan Sentra is owned by my mother and drove by me mostly when my car is in the shop getting repairs. Build quality is amazing which Nissan is well known for. Great performance. Fun to drive. Not my dream car but its quality is great and should never be ignored.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Performance and Build Quality

Cons: Base Model, Not a Z or GTR, Not a Huge Fan of 2 Door Cars

Overall Good Car, Fun To Drive And I Would Recommend It To Anyone. — Performance is good for a cheap car. 215hp with I/E. Build quality could be better though. Appearance is great. I get a lot of compliments on it. Aftermarket support is somewhat lacking though. Overall good car, fun to drive and I would recommend it to anyone.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, looks good, cheap

Cons: Not the most reliable. Has had several minor issues.

Sentra — 33 MPG CVT automatic transmission means you get smooth, constant acceleration, but I did buy an economy car. It is slow. Cheapest new car I think I will ever own. All the maintenance was free for the first 75k miles

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: $$$$$

Cons: It's stupid slow

Awesome!! — gr8 car...It's worth every single penny for the price that I paid.... The sound system is the best feature and car is very fuel efficient. The maintenance doesn't cost much and make sure that you don't buy the extended warranty...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice interiors, surround system, good brakes, fuel efficient....

Cons: shaky suspension

Beeee Sixteen Spec — Decent acceleration, good brakes, good handling. Very good build quality, doesn't squeak as much as the b15 specs. Its a 20k sports economy car so you get what you pay for. I like the appearance of my prius err I mean sentra. Very fun to drive, 6 spd with a short shifter is always fun.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: no problems at all

Cons: Its a sentra lol..

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

The 2008 Nissan Sentra With The Cvt Transmission Is A Piece Of Junk — I bought a 2008 nissan sentra with the cvt transmission. At 30,000 miles the transmission sounded loud. I brought it to the dealership and they blamed it on 4 feathered tires. These tires were the second set of tires on the car with only 14,000 on them. At 60,000 miles the noise got even louder. Brought it back to Nissan and they said that the transmission was shot and they would not pay for it because it was over the 60,000 mile warranty. Still fighting with Nissan to pay to fix it. Would not recommend this car to anyone. If you want a real Jap car go to Toyota.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: no positives

Cons: transmission broken

Simple For That College Student — Overall, I do love this little base car! I bought mine certified,pre-owned with 48k miles on it. It's only 1 year old, even tho it has 48k miles, those were mostly highway miles since it was a company car. I see it as perfectly broken in. Base cars from other car brands did NOT include powerwindows or doorlocks, but MINE DOES! (Yay!) The ride is nice. Very quiet and has a nice new hum to it. I enjoy the overall appearance. Wonderful for me, since I am in college and need something with great looks and great gas milage. The price was amazing as well! I could not have asked for better price, looks, gas milage, and looks. The get-up-and-go of the car is a little less from what I am use to, only owned one car previously, but am enjoying the smooth ride. I just bought it today, and already people were checking it out. (Gotta love that bold, blood-red color! Hehe.)

Pros: Price, MPG, Looks, Interior, Smooth Sailin'

Cons: Little slower than what I'm personally use to
