Of course i love the car because its a nissan. Its the 3rd one we've owned and we are definitely a Nissan family.However, when I bought the Sentra I really wanted an altima, but settled for a smaller, more efficient car. I feel that this was a huge mistake! The car is definitely way too small for the children in the back seat or even the adults in the front! It gets great gas mileage, but at too big of a cost. We completely sacrificed our comfort to cushion our wallets. The car is fine, its just not the one we should've come home with.
Minor Irritations with the car
2008 Nissan SentraGrandmuzzy - Virginia01/14/2011
I bought the 2008 Nissan Sentra after totaling my 2006 Saturn Ion. The Sentra is a nice looking car and drives well and is very comfortable to drive, and people tell me it will be a better car than the Saturn, but I miss my Saturn, the third one I had had. The complaints I have are for minor, aggravating little things. The heater is not good; I am miles down the road before the car warms up, and then my right foot burns up while the left one stays cold. The doors do not automatically lock when you put the car in reverse, as the Saturn did. The visor over the driver's side either has to be behind the rear view mirror, in which case you can't move it without knocking the mirror all gollywompas, or you have to leave it in front of the mirror, and then you can't see the traffic lights. I like to be able to move my visor to the side window depending on where the sun is. The cruise control is very easy to set, but when you go up a hill, the mph decreases five miles per hour and then has to build back up. I have had the car for a little over a month, and I am getting used to these minor irritations, but all in all, I liked my Saturns better and wish they still made them!
