Pros: Good gas mileage. Fairly peppy and relatively comfortable. Good size trunk.
Cons: Doors & gas funnel rusting. Automatic transmission replacement after 34K.
Both my son and I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE. Both cars have the same problems and Nissan will not take responsibility for anything. Both vehicles started rusting at 2 years. The inside bottom of both front doors is rusting through where the door hits the rubber gasket. The gas cap funnel is rusting and the car has failed Emissions Testing because of this. The biggest problem is that Nissan refuses to take responsibility for the poor quality/bad design of this vehicle. These two cars are our family's 4th and 5th Nissan product, but will definitely be the last. My automatic transmission replacement after only 34,000 miles was the icing on the cake.
