Reviewed: 2002 Nissan Sentra

4dr Sedan 175-horsepower 2.5L I4 6-speed manual FWD

Why the 2002 Nissan Sentra?

Price or payments

Price was not bad when I got it for the indicated performance(things are changing now that other manufacturers are getting better and cheaper)

Feature availability

Well appointed without paying a fortune for added features.


Handles rather sporty for a 4 door small sedan

Why Not the 2002 Nissan Sentra?

Reliability & durability

1. Paint poor in 1st year, chips off 2. Engine sensors die often (recalls galore) 3. Pre-Catalytic converter disintegrates and particles are sucked into engine and kill it. 4.Butterfly valve screws and plate fall into engine from intake manifold. & mo

Materials & workmanship

Poor quality paint Poor quality materials which die before usual mileage but is not bad if you drive a lot and are still within warranty... 6 months out of warranty and you are out of luck even with very very low miles

Fuel economy

Poor mileage for a smaller car, closer to sports car turbo type gas mileage.
