To anyone thinking of buying a Nissan, here are my thoughts
A friend of mine told me she was happy with her 1998 Nissan Sentra and she would consider buying another one. Firstly, if you had a great experience with your Nissan, then I am truly happy for you, because I would never wish my four year nightmare of owning a Nissan Sentra on anyone. Here is my response though to anyone who has had a positive experience with a Nissan or anyone considering buying a Nissan:
“Just FYI, here’s my Nissan blog, just in case you’re still considering buying another Nissan Sentra. I’m happy you had a great experience with your ’98 Sentra, as I would never wish my four year nightmare of owing an ’02 Sentra on anyone. However, from my research, many others had problems with Sentras in the 2000’s.

Hence, I would highly advise against another Nissan Sentra or any Nissan ever, as I believe the Sentra’s in the 2000’s were shoddily built, and Nissan Corporation does not back up their product or warranties. So if you buy another Sentra and you have any problems at all, you’re going to have a tough time getting Nissan to stand behind it or their warranty or to get a dealership to fix it properly, and why would you want any of that hassle.
I found Technical Service Bulletins, which are known issues and fixes written up by Nissan Corporation, and the dealership refused to look at these, and Nissan Corp. refused to acknowledge these or acknowledge that the “shut down” problem with my Sentra was a known issue, when the TSB’s proved that it was. Nissan is a horrible horrible company that does not care at all about their customers or repeat business and their reps outright lie to you constantly. Nissan may have been different back in the 90’s, but that is not the case today.
Anyhow, that’s my two cents. Hope it helps.”
This is why you:
DON’T BUY NISSAN
BUY THE COMPETITION
Changing the world one post at a time
My aim is to give a truthful, accurate account of the four year nightmare of owning my Nissan Sentra and the stress, exhaustion, and anger I experienced dealing with Nissan Corp. and the three dealerships. If anyone I mention here or elsewhere on my blog wishes to email me with any comments on anything I say, or wishes to contradict or challenge anything I say, I will be more than happy to review any comments, to post your comments and then comment on them myself, or remove anything that I find out to be inaccurate.
THIS IS THE THE TRUTH ABOUT NISSAN AND HOW NISSAN CORP. AND THE DEALERSHIPS TREAT THEIR CAR OWNERS.
