It was 40 degrees and raining when my plane touched down at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport around 1 a.m. A series of delays in Chicago pushed my flight from late night to red eye, and my eyes were very red. After a full day of work and a seemingly interminable layover in a strange airport, I wanted nothing…
“We think 2016 will be the year of the sedan!” Senior VP of Marketing and Operations Fred Diaz declared minutes before pulling the wraps off their new, mid-level people mover. He’s wrong, but this car is absolutely worth your attention anyways.
A rare and valuable 2014 Nissan Sentra was involved in a 3-car accident on Houston’s Southwest Freeway, suffering fairly serious damage. Luckily, no one was seriously injured. Oh, and the other cars were a Rolls-Royce Wraith and a McLaren 12C.
What could possibly go wrong, right?
An old Sentra is good at a number of things, like existing and being made of atoms. But what about taking one mudding?
The compact segment is fiercely contended, with strong competitors coming from every major carmaker. With increasing quality deriving from each geographical location, expectations are rising, and customers are no longer willing to settle for a crappy econobox.
For its newest generation, the 2013 Nissan Sentra is skipping the facelift and getting the full on Michael Jackson. The all new car has a laundry list of new features, and they stretch from the nose to the tail. It's lighter. It's economier. It's upscalier. It's LEDier. It also looks like the lovechild of the new…
Today at the Beijing Motor Show, Nissan unveiled the Sylphy. But don't be fooled by the name; this is the US-bound 2013 Nissan Sentra in disguise.
Even after an SE-R Sentra (OK, fine, an SE-R 200SX) won a LeMons race last year, conventional wisdom held that Nissans can't really compete in the series. Forget conventional wisdom, because the Rogue Squadron SE-R just beat 107 cars!
If you're a car guy or gal, you know how it works: one of your broke-ass, cheapskate friends needs a transportation car. It has to be under a grand and reliable enough that you won't be asked to fix it.
I spent a few days in the beach town of Sayulita, Nayarit State, Mexico last week. Talk about your outstanding mix of battered-yet-proud survivors and Stuff We Can't Buy Up Here! Let's take a look.
When your rings go bad and crankcase pressure starts a-buildin' up, you'll get oil a-gushin' out of any escape it can find: dipstick tube, filler cap, wherever. Cars dumping oil on a race track get in trouble. What to do?
Called "Drift," Nissan Canada's latest commercial for the Sentra SE-R features nothing but 1/10 scale RC cars. The epic ad was even filmed using other RC cars and an RC helicopter. Sounds more fun than driving a Nissan Sentra SE-R.
We see this all the time during the BS Inspection: team can't get their shit together to finish their LeMons racer in time, so they bring their "real" race car and ask to be allowed to drive it.
If that's not the best (worst?) opening line for a forum thread, then we don't know what is. Can you guess what's next? Yep, incompetent attempts to destroy said motor using rocks and antifreeze.
The Sentra SE-R is one of the few cars in this analysis that had its results skewed in a big way by BS Penalty laps. That's due to the huge rash of SE-R cheating we've seen in the last year or so. Still, Sentras have been pretty good at busting suspension parts and nuking engines.
One very 80s automotive phenomenon was the two-seater commuter car. Of all of them, only the Honda CRX had real staying power; the others mostly disappeared. Still, junkyard archeologists sometimes turn up some interesting bones.
The 19th race in 24 Hours Of LeMons history took place last weekend, and we finally had our first-ever Nissan winner! Right behind it- well, in some cases way behind it- were 121 other vehicles.
OK, Nissan fans, you can stop agonizing over the so-called Curse Of Nissan at the 24 Hours Of LeMons, because one of your cars has finally taken the overall win!
We've started to see quite a few 300ZXs at LeMons races, in addition to the usual crop of 280Zs and 280ZXs. For reasons we don't understand, the Zs haven't been so reliable at LeMons races; at some point, though, one of them is bound to dominate a race. We're also hearing rumors of a possible 510 at a future West…
