The first new car I ever owned by Pittsburgh Annie on 01/14/2008. Trim: 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE, Owned 6 years.
Pros: I have had no major problems with this vehicle in the 5 years I've owned it. By major problems, I mean costly engine, transmission, etc. (although there was a recall on it) I have taken this car on plenty of roadtrips totaling over 15,000 miles, and she never gave me a problem. Not to mention it was comfortable to sit in on those 12 hour trips.
Cons: Minor problems that I could live with were: Radio light only turns on when it wants to, shifter light is out, and the window motor had a little trouble (which the dealership fixed for free, and gave me a free rental to use for the day they kept it in the shop). One thing that did happen, was that the car completely shut off on me while I was driving. Come to find out there were 2 recalls on it- but the repairs were free, and I've had no problems since.
Overall review: Like I said- no major problems that I couldn't deal with. I lost my sentra to an accident, and even though I don't want to feel like I'm in the same car when I buy a new one..... I know it was good to me. The car buying world is tough, and I think it's a hit or miss every time.

Finally a good car! by Amanda from Tulsa on 09/20/2005. Trim: 2001 Nissan Sentra SE, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It handles great, gets pretty good gas mileage. I love the color, it's the prettiest blue ever! It's such a nice car.
Cons: Day I bought it the throttle positioning sensor broke and the clock screen doesn't always light up. Also, the change holder under the steering wheel, almost everytime I open it I pull it off accidentally. I also wish I could pull down the seats to the trunk from the inside.
Overall review: I *LOVE* this car! Except for not being able to see the clock at night (really annoying, but I think it's just a fuse) I think it's a really great car! It's actually made me hate driving less.

Do NOT BUY! I am saving you Headaches... by Joe on 10/29/2013. Trim: 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I should have wrote this a long time ago...Do not buy this Nissan! Never buy a car on its first year of production.
Cons: Transmission went out...$2000 Air Conditioning went out. Sensor went out. Oil dipstick melted, Nissan would not help. CD on radio broke at about 70,000 miles I put $5000 in before it even hit 100,000 Nissan has horrible customer service.
Overall review: Do not buy this, get another used car like a Toyota or Honda.

Solid Small Car by Jesse on 06/18/2013. Trim: 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Pretty decent handling, great gas mileage, got around mid 40s during the summer and high 30s during the winter (though I am an extreme hypermiler). I had the 5 speed and I loved the clutch and it was decent enough at accelerating and cruising. Very nice interior materials for an entry Sedan, everything feels very solidly built inside the car. The exterior looks OKAY for a car in today's day and age. Good amount of storage place for such a small car.
Cons: The paint chips SUPER easily so that's something to watch out for. Also my car burned oil and had a nice soot on the outside of the trunk from that issue. Turning radius wasn't the best, but that didn't hurt overall handling. There is almost NO back seat room for passengers, unless they are very small they will be cramped. Bit of a bumpy ride over
Overall review: Pretty decent little 4 banger that can save a lot on gas if you drive it correctly. I actually liked driving this little car around. Would recommend if it's just your daily driver and you don't have kids or a whole lot of stuff to take around. Would recommend the smaller more fuel efficient 5 speed GXE model because you can really get some great mileage out of it. I would routinely get tanks of 460 miles on it's 10 gallon tank during the summer.
