2011 nissan sentra Reviews and News

2011 Nissan Sentra
2011 Nissan Sentra
Introduced in 1982, the Sentra has long been a strong entry for economy car shoppers. The Sentra has rarely been a class leader, but has always been a strong seller. There have been times during that run, however, when the Sentra was the best choice in its class. Sentra is facing an even tougher crowd of competitors these days, but the Sentra manages to remain competitive thanks to a variety of models, excellent fuel economy, and low maintenance costs.

The base Sentra is just that, a very base model. It is however, a very good inexpensive entry level economy car. There are several increasingly sporty models reaching their pinnacle at the SE-R Spec V, which provides a significant amount of performance in a small package.

All Sentra modes except for the SE-R include a 2.0 liter 140 HP, four cylinder engine. The SE-R is powered by a 177 HP 2.5 liter four cylinder. The super high performance SPEC V uses the same 2.5 liter engine, but raises the power to 200 HP. All engines can opt for the standard 6 speed manual transmission or a CVT, except for the SPEC V in which only the manual transmission is available.

A number of model year 2010 and 2011 Nissan Sentras are being recalled due to a possible faulty engine bolt. The engine could stall or have a voltage drop, among other issues.

Are people at Nissan aware of how far the Sentra has fallen? Such a cheap, bland interior just doesn't cut it in 2011. Neither does such an unrefined powertrain. CVT automatics may once have been a good way to achieve superior fuel economy numbers, but now competitors are achieving much better results with torque converter and dual-clutch transmissions that don't make the engine sound like a clogged shop vac.

Honda and Toyota offer compact cars that sell almost as well as their mid-size sedans, but Nissan has struggled to sell the Sentra in high enough numbers to make it a real threat to the compact sedan sales crown. When the redesigned Sentra comes out in two years, Nissan hopes to change its luck.
