The engine seems ok and the body makes also bit solid than other latest japanese car but as mention the loud noise from front braking is reaaly annoying esspecilly in crawling jam. Second the stupid air cond design which has no cluster selecter and the back seat is not a recline type .OTHER model on its segment has this as standard. and the rear suspension is realy small makes the car looks like 'sampan if two adults fit in . The spare parts bit expensive in TCM rather get from potong or... (read more)

Basically I was bought my car since 2006 March and right now was 3 years plus. It's was almost 60KM ride. Until right now is still good condition. Performance Car is Ok but for noise canceling is so so only. The maintainance price I thinks is quite expensive. If compare to Malaysia Proton, of course Nissan Sentra is much more better. What I can said is totally cannot compare. Fuel consumption I thinks is still save compare to 1.6A other brand car. Body kit is extremely solid as this car 5... (read more)

I'm happy we bought the car as it was worth for what we paid. Seems the fuel economy isn't that high. The ride comfort is good but not much as I expected it to be. Seems this is not designed for rugged use. But for day to day use. N16 is awesome as it's killing looks are loved by almost everybody. (read more)

Stupid, dumb, dull and wimpy car. poor engine power, gears too tall, wimpy clutch, poor steering response, noisy front suspension,engine dampers too soft, too much body roll, poor handling, very poor slip differential, it does not accelerate even on down hill. (read more)

Elegant looking, ok performance and smooth comfortable ride. The Nissan Sentra n16 is a great small car the major problem being the weak suspension, especially the big cradle bushins and the shocks. (read more)

I had this car for more than a year and I am very pleased with it. Long distance travel in this car is very pleasant and the stiff body makes the drive very smooth. Fuel economy is very good considering the size of the car which is large.
The throttle play takes some time to learn since it is controlled electronically. Once mastered, the car's power can be accessed easily although putting in aftermarket cotton filters will greatly speed up the release of the engine power. (read more)

Bought my Nissan Sentra in 2001 - brand new. A bit over-priced at that time. Encountered noise from front left-side of car. Constantly sent to service centres in Ipoh and KL (based here at that time) but made no difference & was very frustrated having spent so much on the car & not having to enjoy its driving pleasure. Finally, wrote to Tan Chong on details and problem. Was referred to the service centre in Kuantan (currently based here). Kuantan centre made a huge difference and immediately... (read more)

I am the owner of the latest version (new backlight)Nissan Sentra 1.6A N16. I received my car on 17th April 2004 from EDARAN TAN CHONG SDN BHD SECTION 16 BRANCH.
The salesman passed the car to me and said "This car has a problem, the front driveshaft bearing is making noise when you turn." Can you imagine what is my facial expression at that time? I am totally disappointed with NISSAN and not only TAN CHONG. How can they handover the new car with problem to their customer? I am actually... (read more)

I am the owner of 2 brand new Nissan Sentra 1.6A ( N-16 ) in Malaysia. I am facing a lot of problem for the both car until today. I understand that Nissan's car is not as bad as what I mentioned here for those car fitted in japan or anywhere else but not in Malaysia ( Tan Chong ). I took a ride in my uncle's sentra which is exactly same to mine in singapore ( imported from japan ). That's totally perfect and nothing I can complain and make me feel ashame for my own Sentra. My first Sentra I... (read more)
