I have not much expiriance on Sentra but heard that the Sentra was phase out it may have spare parts problem, I try to search the sentra spec but look like not much in fomation for that car and the Sentra look like not many function exp: drive handling feature, if compare the FC Sentra is the most fuel comsumption car. :stupid:

hey bro , i ahve the sentra year 2004 , its basicly the ame model nissan sentra n16 just that the 2007 model onwards has facelift front end and some come wif nismo bodykit, overall engine is the 1.6.

It is a very powerful and reliable engine as long it has been well taken care of , fuel consumption is a little heavy bcoz its 1.6 engine is just sufficient to pull that heavy body , but drives well no underpower feeling unless u are carrying full load of people.

The automatic transmission is smooth as long as it has been service every 20-25k km with nisan atf.

My average fuel consumption of city driving is 10-11 KM per liter of fuel. I am a heavy foot driver , the sentra has a very responsive engine tehrefore if you are like me you will tend to floor the pedal. Top speed is around 170-180km/h , but top end power is weak after about 140km/h.

Its a high revving engine so dun worry about the needle touching the redline the engine characteristics are such , this car will be most enjoyed when goin up hills like genting or cameron highland, the engine pulls very well with no power lag on hills.

Parts are cheap , just buy them from sparepart shops, i can recommend one in pj , i am currently running my car wth castrol magnatec 10w-40 semi synthetic oil and using shell / mobil fuel only.

Recent things i changed (just so u can know pricing of parts)

1. complete absorber change all 4 around > rm650 using kayaba with installation
2. Rear tailight broke , nissan original is rm350 but mine is local taillight > rm130 (i am using more then a year with no problem)

3. Brake pads > rm60 front and brake shoe rear > rm50
7. Average service every 5k km (engine oil / oil filter) > rm130 and below
8. Major service every 20k km(engine oil / oil filter / air filter / spark plugs and atf fluid change) RM 350 and below

The suspension is soft and comfortable , its very well insulated and its very fun to drive.

Please do pm me for further details

mine is w/o abs also , and no rear disk break, u shud be getting the facelift model with new front headlights mine is older with the bigger headlights. Mine is year 2004. Well the braking is good , dun worry abt tht , in fact its one of the best brakes i have ever had other then my honda type z, even my mercedes sl300 and s320l dont bite tht much. Just make sure ur pads and brake oil is sufficient.
