ofcourse it does. but i'm not disputing that.
ill type it in a more understandable way;
if they (the reviewers) get to drive amazing cars ALL THE TIME, it would influcence their opinion ALL THE TIME.
what does that mean?
bascially that ANY car that is not a supercar or cost 100k would get scrutinized and put down, not just the sentra.
BUT....thats not what happens. And there goes your theory out the window.

we talk about the cars themselves instead of talking about the people who are talking about the cars...
#211 of 226 Which is best overall?
Mar 21, 2008 (7:04 pm)
I'm looking into getting my first car and I have no idea what car is best to get. Right now i'm looking at getting a Nissan Sentra GXE with 87K, Honda Civic EX with 127K, or Toyota Corolla with 150K. I've seen through reviews that Honda Civics are generally a very reliable car and don't have many problems, if any. With the Nissan Sentra GXE i've seen mixed reviews and multiple problems, as the Toyota Corolla I know is a very reliable car because my Dad owns own himself, which i drive frequently, but don't want to buy my parents old car, want my own identity.
What is the best car for a 17 year old who needs to go to work and would like to go on some long drives(a state away), Nissan Sentra GXE w/87K, Honda Civic EX w/127K, Toyota Corolla w/150K?
Hopefully i'll get a response (last posting was this past summer)

What year cars are we talking about? anyhow, I'd deffinitly scratch the toyota. nothing against them, but 150k miles is a lot. sure, the engine is probably fine, but 150 is a lot of miles on things like exhaust, suspension, transmission and so on. A 150k car (any make/model) can quickly and easily nickel and dime you to death..
as for the honda and nissan, it's hard to say without knowing price and what year they are. But going buy just what you provided:
if the sentra has the SR20 motor, get it, or if the honda is a 2003 model year get the sentra. otherwise, go for the civic, unless there is a significant price difference.

honda is a 2003 model year get the sentra.
Why? The 2003 Civic is fundamentally the same car as the 2001, 2002, 2004, and 2005 Civic.

Having been an owner of a 01 Sentra GXE, I really enjoyed mine I bought mine w/ 85K and it was nothing but purely highway miles. I never had any issues with it and lucky for me, the owner still had the warranty on it so if I did happen to need anything, It would go to the dealership. I had it for 1 year and then I got in an accident. But lucky for me, It saved my life and I walked away with only a bruised wrist. I like the Sentra so much, I got an 02 Sentra SE-R and I really enjoy it

Dumped this car when the warranty was up...dealer could never get rid of the "check engine" light for very long. At the 3 year mark, traded for a '06 Civic and couldn't be happier!
