We purchased a new Nissan Sentra in 2009 on the basis of a new Nissan factory that had been built in our state. We believed we were helping state workers maintain well-paying jobs. Sadly, we were greatly disappointed in our purchase. From the beginning, we began to experience problems. One of the first problems we noted was a rather irritating rattling sound coming from the front end of the vehicle. The rubber stripping around the driver and passenger windows also came loose and had to be tucked back in each time we opened the door. We also had an incident where 2 of the motor mounts cracked and had to be replaced at our expense. In a previous Nissan vehicle, also purchased new, we experienced the same motor mount problem with all 4 mounts. Again, we had to repair the vehicle at our ex... (more)
Story
My wife would sometimes take my younger teenage children out to "ride the strip" as the kids referred to it. They had a good time rolling down the windows and talking to their friends as they drove slowly up and down a main thoroughfare in our small town.
Pros
The vehicle is stylish and drives well overall. The color was a favorable choice from the manufacturer. The pain job has held up well even with well over 100,000 miles on the vehicle.
Cons
Aside from the items listed in my initial review above, we also had a large number of recalls for this particular vehicle. Whenever we needed to take our vehicle to the local Nissan dealership where we purchased the vehicle, we would often run into issues with someone at the repair desk who was unhelpful. One clear example is when we experienced a strong gasoline smell in the vehicle that made it impossible to drive safely. We were told by the woman at the repair desk that we needed to take the vehicle home and come back the next day. It took us a total of 3 days and 2 trips to be able to ... (more)

The vehicle was my father-in-law's, and my husband and I purchased it from him. The Nissan Sentra is a decent car, but if I were to buy another car, it probably wouldn't be a Sentra. Firstly, I will never again buy a black or dark-colored car. The state I live in is extremely hot, and the black exterior and the black interior materials make it sometimes unbearable. On sunny days, my hands have been burned on the steering wheel, which can be very frustrating. The air conditioning is not powerful enough to make up for the heat inside the car. Otherwise, the car performs all right. The brakes are very powerful, but it is difficult to bring the car up to speed when traveling on the highway. The car has lots of mileage on it and is still going strong. I expect we'll have it for at least two... (more)
Story
My father-in-law also owns a Nissan Sentra, but in white. Occasionally, when my husband and I have needed two cars, I will take the white car and he'll take the black car. People often find it funny to see that we're both driving the exact same car in two different colors!
Pros
My favorite thing about the Nissan Sentra is easily the audio quality. When listening to music, the sound quality is much better than it is on my phone or on my computer. The size is also a perfect size for my husband and I- anything bigger would be much to big for us.
Cons
The color of our car, as stated above, is easily my least favorite thing. I also wish the air conditioning system was more powerful. The car is difficult to start- we have to turn on the battery for a few minutes before we start the car to minimize the difficulty.

I love this car. Even though it is getting old and has 195K plus miles on it , it still runs like new. It is pretty roomy for a smaller sedan style car. It has held up well with the exception of rust on the rear quarter panel. I can fit a lot of stuff in it. I have had it packed to the brim while moving and was surprised at all I could fit in this car. Basically, I have never had a problem. The only repairs I have made are brakes and just the other day, sway links. Also a couple of oxygen sensors, but basically, I can realistically say that in the 13 years I have had this car , I have only put about $1,800 in repairs into it. I am not counting oil changes, which I do regularly.
Story
Basically, I just used it for work and errands so no fun stories. I wish I cold give one. I did however spend a lot of time going to flea markets in it and yard sales which was fun at least for me. I can really pack stuff into this small car which is surprising. I have also fit three car seats in the back, a tough squeeze for my three grandkids, but it worked. They love riding in it, as they u... (more)
Pros
Good gas mileage and minimal repairs. The trunk has ample space.
Cons
Rusting. There could use more space between the front and back seats.

Nissan Sentra Generations

The Nissan Sentra began life as a subcompact car before graduating to the compact category for the 2000 model year. The Sentra has gotten larger over the years and the EPA rated it as a mid-size car from the 2007 model year on. It competes against models like the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Chevy Cruze and Ford Focus.

2013 - Present (Seventh Generation) B17

The newest generation of Sentra is now built on the Nissan V platform and remains front-engine, front-wheel-drive. Both the interior and exterior were redesigned with a modern, upscale look.

Trims include the S, SV, SR, SR Turbo, SL and Nismo (the SR Turbo and Nismo were added for the 2017 model year).

Most models come with a 1.8-liter engine that comes standard with 130 horsepower, 128 pound-feet of torque and mpg ratings of 30 in the city and 39 on the highway. The SR Turbo and Nismo come with a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. All trims come with a CVT except for the S base model and the performance-oriented NISMO, which both offer a six-speed manual transmission. In 2014 revised the CVT tuning, steering and suspension, plus an update for Nissan Connect.

2015 added new exterior colors and rear disc brakes as standard on SR models. 2016 saw a facelift that added new exterior parts to give the Sentra a closer resemblance to the Maxima and Ultima.

2007 - 2012 (Sixth Generation) B16

In the sixth generation, the Sentra's 110 cubic feet of interior space made it technically a midsize car in the eyes of the EPA though it continues to compete in the compact sedan segment. The growth allowed for room in Nissan's lineup for the new Versa subcompact model below the Sentra.

This model was bigger in nearly every way than the previous generation and featured a wheelbase that was nearly six inches longer.

Most models in this generation came with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that made 140 horsepower and a CVT automatic transmission.

The performance-oriented SE-R and Spec V models used a larger 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that made 177 horsepower and 200 horsepower respectively. These models also had upgrades to their suspension, brakes and interior and exterior trim. The SE-R continued to use a CVT while the Spec V swapped in a six-speed manual transmission.

2010 saw a mid-generation refresh with a revised exterior and upgrades to the interior including a revised audio system and navigation system, optional backup camera and USB ports.

2000 - 2006 (Fifth Generation) B15

This was the first generation Sentra to be formally classified as a "compact" car when it launched as a 2000 model. The redesign gave the entire model a more substantial presence to coincide with its growth and set it apart from previous economy car designs.

This generation was built on the Nissan MS platform and remained a four-door sedan only.

Most models in this generation came with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 126 horsepower and a four-speed automatic transmission or five-speed manual gearbox. The performance-oriented SE-R model had a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 165 horsepower while the even hotted Spec V model had 175 horsepower.

Nissan refreshed the Sentra for the 2004 model year that featured mild interior and exterior design changes.

1995 - 1999 (Fourth Generation) B14

The fourth-generation Sentra dropped the coupe model and came in a sedan only.

Most models came with a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine that made 115 horsepower and was paired with a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. These engines were notable in that they came with timing chains rather than timing belts; the switch was aimed at improving reliability and durability.

SE and SE-R models had a 140-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Several trims were available in this generation. The base, XE, SE and GXE were carried over; a GLE and SE Limited were added.

1991 - 1994 (Third Generation) B13

The third-generation featured a standard 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine that produced 110 horsepower and 108 pound-feet of torque. It was the standard engine across all trims, including the base, E, XE, SE and GXE.

The body style choices for this generation were narrowed down to a two-door coupe or four-door sedan (wagon and hatchback models were dropped) and it was still built on the Nissan B platform. Four and five-speed manuals and three and four-speed automatic transmissions were available.

A facelift happened for the 1993 model year and included interior updates, standard driver's airbag for the GXE and optional across other trims. This was also the generation when the Sentra SE-R was introduced, which included a 140 horsepower engine.

1987 - 1990 (Second Generation) B12

The second generation of Sentra did not appear in the U.S. until 1986 for the 1987 model year. It offered the 1.6-liter engine with 69 horsepower and paired with a five-speed manual transmission.

As with its predecessor, this Sentra came in a variety of body styles, including a two-door coupe, a sedan, a four-wheel drive five-door station wagon and a hatchback. The latter two body styles used an E16i engine with 70 horsepower paired with a five-speed manual transmission.

By 1988, all Sentras began using this engine. In 1989 and 1990, the engine was a 90 horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder.The 1989 model year saw mild updates to the exterior design and subtle changes to the interior.

1982 - 1986 (First Generation) B11

The first generation of Sentra was introduced to replace the Datsun 210 in the U.S. It was available in four different body styles, including a two-door coupe, four-door sedan, five-door wagon and three-door hatchback coupe.

The standard engine was a 67-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder, which was eventually replaced by a 69 horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder. Transmission choices included a four or five-speed manual and a three-speed automatic.

The EPA rated the Sentra with some of the best gas mileage at the time. It got 43 mpg in the city and 58 mpg on the highway. Its light curb weight of a mere 1,875 pounds helped it be that efficient.
