#796 of 2065 pass side lock...
Jun 14, 2001 (9:20 am)
I definitely think Nissan is trying to save some $$ by excluding that lock. I noticed it, but figured that since I had keyless entry, maybe that's why it was excluded. I did not notice the locks on other Sentras (GXEs or XEs). I actually saw an XE in a parking lot yesterday and it did have a pass side lock, maybe that one was a 2000?
With regards to the availability, I too was surprised to find find a good selection of SEs with manual. No SE manuals with ABS though. That's a tougher combination to find. I figured that LA area dealers would order very few manuals.
When I bought my first car in Maine about 2 years ago, I found a lot of 5spds in dealer lots. I guess people prefer 5 spds in Maine. At a Subaru dealership, they only had about 3 automatic Outbacks, out of about 25. At a Honda dealer, I found the same thing. Lots of 5spds. It's difficult to find 5spds on some models here in Calif, but others are easier. 5spds are easier to find on Civics, Accords, and Integras, and other sporty cars and sedans. I was also trying to find a Camry LE V6 5spd but was thoroughly unsuccessful. Outbacks here are 99% automatic. I think it also depends on the dealer's attitude towards 5spds. My dealer, Performance Nissan, had a good selection of 5spds for all Nissan products, including the Pathfinder.

Pls email me directly at: joseph.collinstelus.com
I'm also considering waiting for the new MP3 version in a few wks time OR the upcoming new
civic hb si (160 hp) due in early 2002 or the bland but quiet and reliable toyota corolla...also considering the new 2001 nissan sentra se (2.0 liter, 145 horses).
My question for your mazda protege 2.0 litre owners: is the protege quiet at hywy speeds and is it a comfortable cruiser for long period hywy cruising?...also any likes/dislikes would be appreciated to hear of.

#800 of 2065 Current Issues
Jun 18, 2001 (10:48 am)
I have a 1996 Nissan Sentry it has been a great car. Two months ago the horn and the cruise control stop working. I know the horn has a solenoid, but I am not sure what is going on with the cruise control. The turn on light comes on but when I press set it the cruise light does not come on and the cruise does not set. If anybody has any advice let me know. Also anybody knows were to get a horn solenoid, other that from the Nissan people.
My battery was drained two days ago, I recharge it and it works fine. But now the Air bag light blinks all the time. Any suggestions

2001 Sentra SE, PP, radio with CD Standard. Owned since 10/00.
Radio is getting static on AM. Distant and not so distant channels
I hear clicking / loud static. Comes and goes, especially going over
bumps while at high speed, not as much at low speed. Static most but
not all the time is engine rpm type noise (goes up and down with rpm).
Periodic, comes and goes like loose wire.
Dealer said antenna was loose - no use. Current direction is to
replace radio (dealer has ordered new and reman one to install -
taking very long to get it though).
Question - Does this sound like radio problem? Or power supply to
radio? Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions? Please don't
tell me to listen to FM only, I paid for AM too!!
Thanks for any help or perspective.

Hi, I heard from a friend that Nissan has a recall on 2001 sentra. It is about the suspension.
Where can I find Nissan recall information?
#803 of 2065 1000 miles, rattles, out of alignment, but soooo many looks!
Jun 19, 2001 (3:03 pm)
the time has finally arrived, 1000 miles on the 'ol odometer. i bought a 2001 Sentra SE w/ PP 5 speed and 6 disc a month ago in Radium. Although, my sister says its silver. that as we radium owners know is a load of crap, radium is silver with a hint of campaign (spelling?). anywho, overall the car has been fantastic. performs and looks like a dream. except of course for the fact that shes out of alignment (i'm taking care of that on friday, arent warranties great!!) i've also managed to hear a little rattle here and there that all seem to go away. maybe shes just settling in. also, i might be asking a little too much from a sentra. as much as this badboy looks expensive, we all know its not a lexus. to the point though, all cars have their little problems that need to be fixed at first so that we may enjoy many years of excellent driving. nissan has managed to build a compact econo car that looks, feels, and drives like a helluva more expensive car. the looks from the other students at my school make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. i love my sentra. but it breaks my heart that i have to make another appointment for that damn recall. oh well, we'll all live another day (hopefully).

carpoint.msn.com does a good job of keeping you up to date on information regarding your specific car. also, if you bought a 2001 sentra, you should be receiving a letter in the mail from nissan soon regarding the recall.
#805 of 2065 2001 SE -- Has your security system gone bad?...
Jun 19, 2001 (4:03 pm)
I own a 2001 Sentra SE with the performance package. If I leave my doors unlocked the security system won't set on its own.
I thought that it was supposed to set on its own & lock the doors automatically.
Am I wrong? How does yours work?
