2009 Nissan Sentra

Reliability is great on this family car!
I have over 80,000 km's on this car and it has been great. The only downfall I have found is the amount of road noise inside, especially in the rain.
Overall, a good car!

2003 Nissan Sentra

Trim: GXE

Great little reliable car
We traded up from a worn out old Saturn wagon to a brand new Sentra GXE back in 2003. It was an amazing upgrade for us. It actually had air conditioning! Can you even imagine the pure luxury of having AC in Vancouver for those five warm days in the summer when it stopped raining? We felt like royalty – no sweating in our seats like mere commoners!

We kept the little Nissan for five years and put tons of miles on it - city and highway. This included many hours waiting at the border for our fellow citizens to import their vast quantity of Washington cheese and/or pharmaceutically enhanced milk. The car could be called "peppy" in that it had a lot of self-confidence for a little guy. It managed the hills in New West while barely a squeak from its tiny tires as it fought for grip in the rain. This was the four-door version and we were able to haul around four adults without much effort. But I wouldn't want to be in the back seat for any extended period of time as I'm sure the risk of deep vein thrombosis would have been off the charts. Perhaps the back ashtray could be hold blood thinners, just in case.

The trunk. It was a miracle to us. After suffering with the Saturn wagon (nicknamed the "Mini Hearse"), where any packages left in the back were ripe for thievery, having a lockable trunk was fantastic. The back seats folded down to offer even more space. By deconstructing the flat-packed Billy Bookcase we were able to just barely slide it right in and rest it comfortably in the middle of the front seats.

Would I recommend this car? Yes, it's a great little first car if you find one with low KMS and having lived a gentle and sheltered life. Just close your eyes and think of it as an Infiniti without the leather seats.
