You are in the Nissan Sentra
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Sentra, Sedan
Feb 18, 2004 (12:12 am)
"The current Sentra was intro-ed in Spring 2000 as a 2000 model, so according to typical Nissan design cycles (5 MYs), the 2004 should be the last, or damned close, and hence, my assumptions above."
Well, if the new one is coming in spring 2005 it will have to be called a 2005.5 or 2006. They can't stretch the 2004 MY into 2005. Also, they need Sentra's MPG/CAFE credits for the 2005 MY. So that means the 2005 Sentra will be carry over, making it officially a 6 model year car, something rare for them.

tomcat630- "Well, if the new one is coming in spring 2005 it will have to be called a 2005.5 or 2006."
Perhaps thats the case, but I dont think its necessarily so. The current Sentra was introduced in February 2000 as a 2000 MY model, not a 2000.5, or a 2001. Indeed, Nissan just released pricing and model year designations for the 2004 Infiniti M45 and Q45 at the end of January. Until that point, all models were still 2003s.

Hey Sandeep, jump on it. I wish I would have had your opportunity. I paid 13k without the roadtrip package...I didn't know I could.
#1581 of 2065 two dealers competing--now its 12.7K
Feb 18, 2004 (12:57 pm)
I am talking to 2 dealers actually and the price now just went to 12.7K out the door with the road trip package....Also( and separately) they are willing to give me extended 100k/5yr nissan warranty for
$1200.00 out the door...is this price for warranty reasonable?
#1582 of 2065 100k/5yr warranty is now 999.00
Feb 19, 2004 (6:22 am)
Probably today I'll buy the new 2004 red sentra 1.8S with road trip package and maybe the extended warranty..
Anyone please let me know if they have paid a lower price than this:
Car price, out the door(including tax title doc dest plate etcetc): 12.7K
Nissan Warranty 100k/5yr: 1.0K
#1583 of 2065 finally bought sentra
Feb 23, 2004 (6:08 am)
I finally bought the red 2004 sentra with road trip pkg for 12.7K out the door. The dealer offered me the 100K/5yr warranty for 899.00 but I did not take it. May be later I will buy it.
#1584 of 2065 Just Bought 1.8 S Auto
Feb 29, 2004 (7:11 pm)
Hi . Just spent today buying a Sentra 1.8 S automatic .
Paid $10635 Plus Tax and Tags for a total of $11125.
Options on the car: Floor Mats and Trunk Mat, Splash Guards and In-Cabin Microfilter.
Had a good experience at Gaithersburg Nissan in Gaithersburg, MD . Very smooth sale, they matched another dealer's ad price without any problems.
Salesman H.S did an excellent job and made the deal painless. Also, no hard sell in Finance. Asked if we wanted an extended warranty , but we refused.
(BTW it's a 1.8 S auto NOT plain jane 1.8 just to be clear. Drove off the lot this evening with 81 miles on the clock.)
#1585 of 2065 2001 sentra stalling
Mar 01, 2004 (3:54 pm)
My father has a 2001 sentra with 20000 miles on it.It has the 1.8 liter engine.Today was the second time it died on him while driving the car. He had to have it towed. The first time it was the crankshaft positive sensor or the ECM module was messed up.I do not know for sure.I do know that there was a recall on the Sentra for the ECM Module. Which they changed at that first stalling time.If anyone else has this or had this problem please let me know.He is in his 70s and has heart problems.So he cannot be in this car, if this is gonna keep happening. Thank you
#1586 of 2065 Test Drove 2004 1.8/5-speed
Mar 02, 2004 (9:59 pm)
I wish I could have spent more time but this was a lunch break test drive so I couldn't do more than run around the block and make 4 right hand turns. I liked the way it handled, the steering felt good, and the brakes were perfect. The shifter was rubbery and balked at going into 1st or 2nd when coming to a stop or slowing for traffic. I will test drive another one and see if it was just that particular car. They have several black 1.8/5-speeds but they are all loaded with mud guards and microfilter and mats. I just want AC, nothing else, but to get AC you have to take the CD deck. Oh well.
