One of the best cars I've owned
I love my Nissan. It has the look and feel of a luxury car. I went from driving a big truck to this Nissan Sentra. I am so comfortable in this car as opposed to my previous truck. I feel the seats are designed with great quality. I have taken this car on very long road trips and been very comfortable the entire way. For a small car, it has a lot of leg room. I have put 30,000 miles on my car and haven't had the first bit of engine trouble. I am very impressed with the way it has held up for me. It has keyless entry and engine start and so far I have had no problem with those components either. My stereo system is still factory, I am one who loves my music, and the speakers and stereo deliver a high quality. I have been known to replace my stereo in other vehicles I have owned, but I haven't had the need to with this car.

Uninspiring
The build quality and design of the car seem lazy, to say the least. After buying the car, I read more into the Sentra line, and this was essentially a refresh of previous models that accomplished nothing. For years, Sentra models have had the same design. In 2013, they redesigned the car. This car seems old and outdated. The Bluetooth in the car barely works, and if it ever does, I'm entirely surprised. It cannot do much more than accept and receive phone calls, whereas competitors' cars from 2012 have much-improved Bluetooth technology and also have things like back-up cameras, back-up alarm sensors, auto-opening trunks, et cetera. This car feels like it's from 2004, when they were just starting to transition away from having cassette players in cars. It drives okay, I suppose, but it's nothing special. I drive the 'special edition' and I'll be the first one to tell you there is absolutely nothing special about it. It looks cheap on the outside and on the inside, and it feels cheap, too. The interior is nothing special, and the GPS system is inefficient and slow. I never use the built-in GPS because it is slow, inaccurate, and unresponsive. I use Google Maps from my smartphone instead. Other than that, it is pretty comfortable. However, it is not too reliable. I have had a myriad of small issues with the car. They have not affected performance too much, but they have affected my experience. The brakes are constantly having issues. Whenever I pull-out from a parking spot in reverse, there is a terrible squeaking noise whenever I press on the brakes. Furthermore, there is a clicking sound coming from the front of the car as I drive. It is very noticeable when I first start driving each day, and tends to wane the more I drive. Both issues happen on a daily basis. Nonetheless, it's 'okay' I suppose, if you merely want a machine to get you from Point A to Point B and nothing else. Other than that, there is absolutely nothing innovative about this car, and it feels outdated. It isn't even that good on fuel economy, and I find myself having to refill every two weeks, and I barely drive at all. In just over five years, I only have 17,000 miles. I literally almost never drive the car, unless it's to work or school.
