2005 0 My complaints about this car are limited, but critical. In the time I had this vehicle, I drove less than 80k miles. In that time, I had to replace a head gasket (At 50k), and was about to do so again (at 79k) before I made the decision to sell it and get something else. The window motors are attached to the windows using plastic pieces that break easily, and are non-replaceable, requiring the entire window motor and armature to be replaced (For around $200, just for parts) rather than replacing the 10 cent plastic clip that broke. The CD player started acting up at around 25k miles, and by 45k was dead and gone. I admit that this was several years into ownership, but it wasn't that frequently used. full 2005 Nissan Sentra review
