    2012 Nissan Sentra Review
    says:
    I just bought this car a 2012 Sentra s off lease a week ago from Nissan its certified used with only 18000 miles. The Nissan dealer was great no pressure at all. I love it, it has a very solid feel nothing seems cheap to me about this car the materials and assembly are very good. It drives great, it went over a pot hole yesterday and the car bounced a bit but its not a full size car so this is expected, its got auto Windows, door locks, keyless egnition, cruise control, a port for the I pod, nice cup holders, a nice radio, great storage with a huge glove box and other compartments for storage. This is my first Nussan and Im very happy with it so far, Id deff consider buying it if your in the market, its design is not as fancy as some of the other makes of this year but I like the simple elegant styling. Check it out before you buy a Kia or ford or Chevy, Hyundai or Toyota.
    Power Ranked 2012 Toyota Corolla worse.
    "Its smooth transmission is great around town."
    Value Ranked 2012 Toyota Corolla worse.
    "It came with a certified used warranty for 100000 miles or 6 years it just feels solid"

    Love The Look, And The Roomy Interior. — Very nice car, love the pearl white color and the look of the interior design. Handles great, very low miles, and has everything you need. Fun car to drive, also the 4 doors is nice for the kiddos. Would recommend this car to anyone.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great gas mileage, lots of space, nice interior look.

    Cons: Small trunk.

    2012 Sentra — This is a very good and reliable car. Would purchase it again. The car has the CRT transmission and you never notice it shifting gears. The trunk is very large and the rear seats are 40/60 and let down for even more space

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great on Gas, Reliable transportation

    Cons: Back seat a little small for 3 adults, not enough leg room for an adult in back seat .

    Great Car For The Price. — I like how this car looks but I think I'm alone in that opinion. A lot of people have said that they think it looks very bland and unstylish. I like the square shape of the exterior alone with the sharp cut edges. The darkened headlights and spoiler on the SR trim improve the appeal. After I first purchased this car I noticed a clunk after a minute of driving. After a while this faded away and the dealer said it was a normal noise. It was a little disconcerting though. The displays are informative and the steering wheel controls are easy to use. The drivers seat is a little short and it doesn't fully support my legs but this isn't terribly uncomfortable. The rear seats feel the same way, however they have a redeeming factor. The 40/60 split is awesome and greatly improves the already impressive cargo capacity of this car. I was able to transport an entire 50 inch TV in the trunk with the seats folded down. Great for a small car. The car is very responsive. The steering is very tight and allows the driver to feel in complete control.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good price. Great storage space. Very responsive.

    Cons: Seems a little sluggish. CVT doesn't provide the power to make it fun to drive.

    Sentra Sr 2012 — I have had my SR for about 4 months now after my beloved 2002 Solara TRD was totalled by an 18 year old new driver. I had considered purchasing the SE-R with the 2.5L engine, but opted for the SR model as it was more economical and had the same body (with sideskirts and smoked headlights/tails). So far I am very pleased with my purchase. I scored a heck of deal since they were trying to move stock because the revamped 2013 is coming out soon. Power is steady and smooth with the torquey 2L engine combined with the CVT. Speaking of the CVT: it took some time to get used to 'no gears', but I am now a fan. Lots of interior room combined with lots of features - heated seats, bluetooth, hands free - really makes it an enjoyable commuter car. I find it very agile, quiet, combined with satifactory power. I think its a hate or love look, both inside and out - of course I am latter. I like the slab sided, squared corners and chopped rear end.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power, Comfort, Looks, Price, Room, Features

    Cons: Seat Fabric, No Telescoping Steering Wheel

    Nissan-sentra-2010---lilith — Best little car I have ever driven. It does what I need it to which is to get me up and down the road, to and from school. The speakers and sound system could be better but that is something that I can improve. I get an average of 27-32 miles to the gallon and everything is perfectly fine with my pretty little car! Her name is Lilith!!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its just so pretty and I love that I can plug in my ipod to the dock and it charges it so I never have to worry about it dying again!

    Cons: the mirrors on the visors dont have lights so its hard to put on make-up or look at yourself at night.
