I bought the 2006 Nissan Sentra primarily for its fuel efficiency. While city driving in DC is not favorable to the car's mileage (I average 27.5 MPG in the city due to heavy traffic), a recent trip revealed that the gas mileage is better than that listed (the sticker said 31 MPG Highway, but I got 33+). The car's durability and high resale value were also factors in the purchase.
I was looking for a car for my daughter, who is away at college, that was reliable, a good price, safe and with good gas mileage, with safety and reliability being the most important. I already own a 2002 Nissan Sentra which has only been in the shop one time for major repairs, and this was a recall. Otherwise I have only routine maintenance. I also owned a Sentra prior to these two with the same reliability. And, I have experienced the same from this vehicle so far. Gas mileage is 25-28 around town and last trip on the highway produced 35 miles/gallon. This car is not a hybrid. I would highly recommend Sentras to anyone and, my next car will probably be another Sentra.
2006 Nissan SentraLolita - Chicago, IL04/30/2009
I actually purchased this car for my daughter for college. I'm really quite pleased that we choose this vehicle. The front seat is very comfortable and the car itself is very fun to drive. Has very nice "pick up" for a 4 cyclinder. Good safety rating, realiable, good MPG. My only complaint is that the back seat is a little uncomfortable and some more leg room would be nice. Overall the Sentra is a very good value for the buck.
