You are in the Nissan Sentra
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Sentra, Sedan
#345 of 2065 Sentra Airbags
Dec 13, 2000 (8:33 pm)
My 96 Sentra hit the curb and caused the damage to the bottom of the car. Two airbags
also burst out. I brought it to Nissan dealer which fixed the damage (control arm, ..)
for almost $1,000 but not the airbags. They told me to replace two airbags will cost around
$2,000. I think it's ridiculous as the whole new car costs around $12,000. Now I am driving
the Sentra without airbags.
What should I do? any advice appreciated.

I had the same problem shifting into first. It doesn't happen all the time, which makes this really annoying. ANyone else have this problem?

I have the same issues with my 2000 SE Left center vent hardly blows, I also have that slighly raised passenger airbag cover. Anyone have any solutions to these things?
#348 of 2065 "Check Engine" light.
Dec 16, 2000 (5:43 am)
When driving the vehicle home there seemed to be excessive vapor coming out of the exhaust (Wife driving-I was following). I also noticed water dripping out of exhaust. After 5 miles this went away. Still, it seemed to be excessive. Of course the car only had 11 miles on it and may have sat a while. The oil appeard OK. I changed oil anyway. Next time I drove it after a short period of time the "check engine" light came on. Wondering if the head gasket leaks. Antifreeze level was low when I got it home. Have an apointment with dealer. Thoughts??
#349 of 2065 rebate: 5.9% financing
Dec 16, 2000 (10:27 pm)
Rebate info on this site sez 5.9% financing for 48 months on Sentra, good through 12/20. Does anyone think there might be an even better rate offered right after that? Wouldn't that make sense-- "12/21 through 12/31" or something. I hope so, b/c I don't think I can make up my mind by next Wednesday, but if I buy one right after this offer I could've saved about $500 over 4 year loan. Any guess?
#350 of 2065 The awesome 150-watt 7-speaker stereo
Dec 16, 2000 (10:35 pm)
I am interested in the SE, going to test drive on Wednesday. What first caught my attention was the TV commercial for the stereo. Is it as good as I hope it is? Also, does anyone know the manufacturer of the head unit/speakers? Interestingly, a lot of the good stereos in cars are advertised by name: JBL (Solara), Infinity (Grand Cherokee), Bose (Maxima), Harmon Kardon (BMW), Nakamichi (Lexus), Monsoon (VW)...
#351 of 2065 cost for 2001 GXE
Dec 17, 2000 (1:59 pm)
hey all. At first I was looking at the CE. But candidly, I can do without the extra horses and would like to save a little money with the GXE. I wanted to get a feeling for what kind of price I should be looking for. The dealer started with 15,995 then came down 500 beans. I think that price can be improved a good 750?? The GXE was a stick with ABS, six disk changer, mats and luxury package. The model is the 2001. Please give your thoughts, but I am thinking this is QUITE a bit high. Thanks
#352 of 2065 cost for 2001 GXE
Dec 18, 2000 (9:15 am)
Looks like you forgot to include the GXE Convenience Package (G03). It's mandatory with the GXE Luxury Package. If you add up the sticker prices on the options you mentioned to the base price and freight, it comes out to $15,845 which is exactly $150 less than $15,995. The Convenience Package lists for $150.
Including the Convenience Package, the invoice is $14,567. Edmunds.com's TMV, about $200 over invoice, sounds reasonable. Have you driven both versions yet?

The reason you are not able to shift the car into first gear when slowing down is because the car has a synchronizer (sp?) on it that doesn't allow you to do so. This is there so that you don't wreck the engine by accidently shifting into first gear when your traveling above a certain engine speed. It all has to do with your RPMs.
There is nothing wrong with the car, you just have to know about this. My 91 Sentra does the same thing; either slow down to a complete stop, match the RPM so that the car will shift into first gear, or just use 2nd.
Hope this clears up your question.
