2008 Nissan Sentra SE-RReview

My 2008 Sentra Se-r — I replaced my 94 Sentra XE with the 08 SE-R and could not be happier. I do wish it had a few more bells & whistles like the radio controls in the steering wheel and break away mirrors. The CVT transmission is smooth and works well as an automatic or in manual mode with the paddle shifters. My only problem was a defective tire. A bubble showed up out of no where that Nissan said must have been road conditions. It was about $300 to replace. It is decent on gas about 27-30 mpg for a city/hwy combo. Hey I live in NYC! That is great with all the stop and go traffic we have. It does get a good hwy run each day though.

Pros: looks great, sounds great, a real head turner

Cons: no break away mirrors, sunglass holder sticks

Just So-so — based on the altima's standout performance, i expected the sentra to be right there as well. i was wrong. the sentra is adequate at best. it's underpowered and not as agile as you'd expect. overall it is not that great of a car. it gets good fuel economy, but it's just so-so for the class. however, i will recommend it because it is not a bad car, just not a good one.

Pros: build quality.

Cons: acceleration, agility, so-so acceleration for class.

Amazing Car. — I love my car because it's awesome. For the price I've payed for, it has the best performance. It's also the fastest car for that class. It's really good on gas and since I got 6 years of warranty, I won't have to worry too much about maintance. It's really fun to drive since it's standard.

Pros: Awesome performance.

Cons: Looks like a turtle...

My First Car — This was my first car, purchased new in June 2008. It was plenty zippy for me, handling was decent, and it had a comfortable ride. Fuel economy was on par with other cars in it's class, and the interior styling was great. One thing that bothered me is that there is a rattle between the door panel and the edge of the front door (on both sides). I have an appointment scheduled to fix it, but haven't yet solved the problem. Also, the paint seems to be extremely thin all the way around the car. In the first month of ownership I had two rock chips. I'd also gotten a rock chip on the windshield during the second month of ownership. More than likely because I drive on a road constantly full of rock haulers. Overall, it's a solid little car with decent build quality, a fresh apperance, and plenty of power and fuel economy out of it's 2 liter engine. The price I paid was well below what it's competitors cost (I paid $13,900 for the 2.0S with a six speed manual). Would I buy it again? More than likely. It's affordable, and gets the job done.

Pros: Fuel economy, ride quality, interior

Cons: Paint depth, some body panels rattle

Nissan Sentras Rock — I love my little car! It's got great styling, it's made well, and it gets incredible gas mileage. The mpg is what's the most attractive about it. It didn't hurt that I had a great buying experience as well. The guys at South Point were amazing. I REALLY feel I got a great deal on my car....no kidding!

Pros: Styling, mpg, lots of room

Cons: Driver seat rattles when I turn corners....dealer is fix it it!

Sweet Car — My first car, so I don't know how it compares to many other cars, but it has a lot of features, and has a great interior. Silver in color, nice to drive, good audio system, what else can I say? Also it gets 34 miles per gallon, so it is nice considering gas prices now. Safe, too.

Pros: Everything

Cons: None

Good Bang For Your Buck — This car is great the a person looking for a nice 4 door with lots of power. Nice to drive and easy on gas. Very easy to upgrade. Mine now has more torque than the SPEC V model.

Pros: GREAT ON GAS

Cons: SUSPENSION COULD BE A LITTLE TIGHTER

Affordable, Efficient, Quiet And Cute... Kinda Like Me. — I bought my car on a whim- well, not totally a whim- I needed a car, my old car (2000 Kia Sephia) was dying very quickly and I knew I had limited time to get a new car.. My roommate has a new Sentra and I love hers so I got it.. Wasn't expensive, I paid around 17,500 for it (over the next 6 years haha!!) and I love it to pieces... I named it Sebastian.

Pros: It goes when I need it to
Safety features include: high-impact engine release, side curtain air bags, steel reinforced doors
Will not lock if key fob is in car
Stereo sounds good- not the loudest or fullest but definitely bumps
Nice interior design
Good amount of interior space- I get compliments on the roominess.

Cons: Um.. it's got a little engine and accelerates at a high RPM- kinda sounds like a lawn mower sometimes :oP
Oh and the visor hits the rear view mirror- that's not a big deal but it's all i could think of.
