Green-and-white Volkswagen Beetles are no longer a familiar sight on Mexico City’s roads, and very soon, the Nissan Tsuru—the Mexican-market, early 1990s Sentra that has survived into the age of Twitter fights and organic bacon boutiques because of its cheapness and practicality—will be gone as well. It’s just not…
For people who want a little more chutzpah in an economy car, Nissan brought out the 2017 Sentra Nismo. It’s a fine little car, but looking at the back of it makes me want to tear my hair out and scream.
After decades as a mainstay in Mexico’s taxi fleets, Nissan announced the Tsuru—a new 1992 Sentra, basically—will cease production after a dismal zero-star crash test. Just how bad was the Tsuru, especially compared to a modern car? This bad.
Remember the awesome Nissan Sentra SE-R from the 90s? It was plain and unassuming, but that badge on the back and a stint behind the wheel revealed something much more fun. Nissan hopes you forget about that car with the 2017 Sentra SR Turbo.
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.
