Impressed.

Pros: Impressive build-quality, peppy engine, good mpg, quiet interior, good value.
Cons: Weak sound system, bad oil filter location, cramped rear leg room.
The Bottom Line: Truly a car worth considering if your looking for value, quality, and reliability.

This is our second Nissan and I'm convinced that Nissan is one of the most underrated brands around. Our 97' Quest is so-so in build quality (built by Ford) but the Nissan drivetrain is solid and reliable. Our 01' Sentra has been a charm in every way ... read more
