Any one here own a late model Nissan Sentra, or know any one that does? I'm interested in Sentra owners' opinions.
I'm looking at a 2007 Sentra S with 58000 miles. The lot has it tagged at $8500, which curiously is below KBB. I drove it and it seems just fine. What has me hesitating is an unusual sound when it accelerates. I'm no mechanic, but if I had to guess I'd describe the sound as an exhaust manifold leak. I can hear the vroom of the engine as well as this noise.
I also spotted an '07 Mazda 3, just a couple hundred dollars more. There's lots of good info on MSN Autos for used cars and they both look like good vehicles. The Mazda seems to have an edge on reviews though. They both have timing chains, too, which appeals to me a lot.
But at any rate, any one have any personal experience with a current-generation Sentra?
