In their new ad campaign for the redesigned 2013 Sentra, Nissan focuses on all the ways the car's features will improve your game with the ladies. We're going to have to call out one of the ads today because it just doesn't pass the truth test.
The campaign focuses on an ordinary-looking, clumsy, awkward schlub and his attempts to date a woman who looks like she could be a model. (Realistic, right?) This guy's not very smooth, so Nissan advises he put some extra smooth in his life by getting the new Sentra with the continuously variable transmission.
I'm just gonna say it straight up: A CVT will not improve your dating life.
We recently reviewed the Sentra and while we gave it decent marks overall, it lost a bunch of points because its transmission was so hugely disappointing.
