2005 Nissan Sentra review by Phillip_Hines

2005 Nissan Sentra

Review Guide:
5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor

Pros: What do you like about your 2005 Nissan Sentra?
I can do some of the maintenance myself: Front brake pads, transmission fluid change, tune-ups, antifreeze, and some electrical work.
Good fuel economy, decent ride, and easy to park.

Cons: How would you improve your 2005 Nissan Sentra?
For those who have purchased this particular make and model please keep this in mind:
(1) OEM thermostat failure is causing the head gasket failure due to poor coolant circulation and I replaced mine after my head gasket blew around 50000 miles with one from Advance auto parts, no more problems for the past three years.
(2) Left strut failure on the drivers side at 25000 miles. I eventually replaced all four struts.
(3) Nissan claims a tune up for at least 105000 miles, don't believe it. I replaced mine with ngk iridium and have had a problem for 40000 miles.
(4) Fuel pump/pressure regulator/fuel sending unit was replaced at 3 times. Electrical failure of the fuel pump relay is the cause.
(5) As far as the power steering is concerned, use something to suck out the old power steering fluid from the reservoir and replace it with Valvoline Synthetic Blend Power Steering Fluid.

2005 Nissan Sentra Review:
Unless you are a mechanic go purchase a Toyota Corolla. Cheap to buy with rebates, but the initial low cost covers up the long term high cost of maintenance.
