I test drove a 2014 1.8 CVT Sentra S with 24K miles and it was a turd! The worst aspect of the car was lack of on demand acceleration! I floored the car from start to finish and the darn thing would not go! Poor engineering quality from Nissan! My wife drives a 2013 Accord 2.4L CVT and the differences are night and day. Perhaps I'm comparing to a top quality car maker, which I don't think of when I say Honda. They've had their problems also. You punch that Accord and CVT or not it's going to go! For Nissan to put out a car that will not accelerate on command when entering a freeway is scary. Imagine trying to get around slow vehicles or out of the way of potential problems/crashes on the freeway. This CVT sedan is a true death trap, at least the one I tried anyway. Even the salesman was surprised to floor it and get no adequate response from the tranny. I'm wondering if there have been enough complaints to require NHTSA to have this car pulled from the streets.

Overpriced for what you get

This is a gas saver, pure and simple. Price tag is too high for what it is. Acceleration is almost no existent whether it's due to lack of power or the horrendous CVT. 0 to 60 in 10 seconds is absurd for a car weighing less than 3000lbs. Not asking for a rocket, but the performance is non-existent. Outdated standard radio. And upgrade option is probably good but over priced. Whether it's the tires, which have a low speed rating, or the suspension, this car does not hug corners well, nor does it like highway speeds in the rain. A good car to keep a new driver at low speeds. Not a good car for anyone else. Standard rear drum brakes in the rear is a laughable concept. 4 disc should have been standard. The ONE highlight, fuel economy. You can probably get over 400 miles to the tank with "normal" driving. And close to 500 miles with cruise control highway miles. If you play with the car, which is lackluster, you will still get 350 miles to the tank, mind you a small tank so you are looking at 30 to 40+ avg mpg. I can't imagine this car holding its value. I would not recommend this car to anyone.

I'm in love with my car

When my car was reaching 100,000 miles (literally, when I pulled into the dealership to buy my new car, the odometer was at 99, 643), I decided it was time to look around for a newer car. I wanted something a little bigger, newer and still under warrant. The 2014 Nissan Sentra had exactly what I was looking for, at a very comfortable price. She drives great, although I can see why some people don't care for the CVT - it takes some getting used to. The fuel economy is fantastic, the ride is smooth, and my 6'4" husband has plenty of room to stretch out. I feel confident that she'll keep me going until I hit 100,000 miles or so. Even though she's a 2014, the prior owner took meticulous care, so she feels and looks like a brand new car. I'd highly recommend this car to anyone.

A few smaller things first. the front seat headrests are very awkward and do not adjust. The car idles very erratically, whether using the AC or not. The back seat is very uncomfortable with two adults. We bought a 2014 NEW in 2015 for my wife to have dependable transportation. The car OVER rev's in any situation, pulling out and passing. The CVT transmission is worthless and is a hazard to drive in high wind, snow or rain. It drives like and rides like a go cart. With the old centrifugal force clutches but much slower to lock up and pull, instead of over revving. We traded it in after 10 months and were astounded at the lost value. We paid 22k for it and could barely get 9k 10 months later with only 6k miles on it. We traded it in on a Honda Accord with another version of the CVT type transmissions and the difference was night and day. Honda has a handle on the new technology and doesn't bulk sell their vehicles to rental car agency's and the like! The longer we drove the Nissan the worse the transmission seemed to get. Check last years Blue Book to see lost value as soon as you pull it from the lot, loosing more than HALF it's value.

I have had my 2013 Nissan Sentra for more than a year and I can tell you this, it is a death trap. If the wind blows a little or a lot, I find myself holding onto the steering wheel for my life. I even have to put the flashers on to let motorists know that I can't go any faster than 40 mph and even that is too fast. I am so scared while driving until when I get to my destination, I am literally shaking. I have now come to the conclusion that I am calling the dealership and letting them know that I am returning it. I could care less about the repercussions of returning the car, but it would be safer to ride a bike than to get into this car.

The car looks great, interior is nice. But the only thing I car is the car to keep my family safe. The Acceleration should not have to make the care sound like its red lining the motor to just get on high way or pass some one. Driving in snow is like a death trap. It sways all over the highway In and out of snow. I know its not my 4×4 but its not my 2014 Honda civic neither. I drove for first time in snow today and was stuck right away. Car is too low to ground. An the gears in front end grind . I know about the traction control, but it don't work worth nothing. When you turn off it should make tires spine. But it still bogs car down. Not fun when your stuck. Buy a Honda civic not. Sentra. No Sure about the other Nissan vehicles an how they handle and performance but I won't ever buy one again. Sorry Nissan you let me down.

Great for the first 1,000 miles

Purchased my 2014 Sentra SV used with 38,xxx miles in August 2015. Everything was fine for the first thousand miles then the transmission began slipping. I did my research on several cars before buying, including the Sentra, but dismissed the claims about the transmissions- BIG mistake. Now, not even two months after purchasing, i have an appointment with my local Nissan dealer to look at my transmission. It's jerking, little or no power, sends the RPMs up to 5,500 randomly, and I feel totally unsafe in this vehicle. This is my first Nissan and likely my last. My two prior vehicles made it to well over 100,000 miles with few major repairs and certainly not a transmission. A 2014 model vehicle with less than 50,000 miles should not need a new transmission. Update---Ended up trading the vehicle in Apil of 2016 for a 2016 Hyundai Veloster. I shouldn't have left Hyundai when I did and learned my lesson the hard way. 10 yr/100,000 mile power train warranty and the dealership is very easy to work with!

I bought my used 2014 sentra after having awful luck with old used cars bought out right. With big expectations I was let down. I've always had 99-05 Hondas and they performed great. This car is great for a new driver or a commuter car but not for high speed travel or busy city driving. Awful pickup, seriously has the worst pickup. Takes probably a whole minute to get from 30 mph to 60. Handling and suspension is "okay", was definitely expecting more from nissan. I was also expecting more interior features. The SV is supposed to be the in between model, it does not come with Bluetooth or other system controls most base models come with today. To say the least, I am let down.

Perfect tool for the job.

There is always a perfect tool for the job at hand. If you want to tear up a mountain road, buy a sports car. If you want to cruise the highway in tomb like silence, buy a big luxo cuiser. My Sentra is a quiet , comfortable, efficient car that can be fun in sport mode. It looks great in silver, more expensive than it was, not like a boy racer car. The CVT works well, I have rented many cars with CVTs and my Sentra does what it should...very well.

Excellent ride.

Okay. For all the people that complain about engine/transmission noise all the time I want to tell you that you are driving it wrong.If you floor the car of course its going to make noise. If you drive sensibly the car is extremely quiet and has an incredible ride. In terms of convenience hopping into this car and going from point A to point B is a delight. Getting in and out is effortless, there is ample headroom and the car is extremely spacious. I have not had any stuttering issues at 13,000 miles. The car hasn't had a single issue either. Fuel economy is great and the sport mode does make the car kind of fun. I never use Eco. I bought the car for 16,700 new.

If you're under 30 and have no kids don't even look at this car.

Don't ever buy this car! Unless if you like boring and unoriginal! There is nothing that makes this car special and way too much money for what you get! I'm 20 years old and this car makes me look like a soccer mom. If you actually want to buy this car because you think it looks cool, then I'm sorry, but i will pray for you. This car is almost as bad as buying a camry! If you're wondering why i even have this its because i needed a co signer and my parents wouldnt help with anything else. Dont ever do this to your kids especially if you know theyll pay for it, but now that i have a 670 credit score i wont ever need them again. I hate this car

Love it

I've had this car for almost 6 months. It has driven me back and forth from SC to Ohio no problem. I really like the sport mode, makes the acceleration comparable to my 04 Camry I had prior. Only downfall is the aforementioned rubber band effect with CVTs. It takes a second to accelerate and get where I need to be unless I floor it, which I really don't like to do. I've used eco mode and it's been fine, no issues. There were a few times when in sport mode that the RPMs stayed fairly high while decelerating. I've had no issues, great gas mileage and it's a beautiful car inside and out. For the money I paid, I'm very pleased and I got exactly what I expected for the price.

Everything I Expected For $17,000.

I purchased my Sentra SV on 12/30/2014. After reviewing several other compact cars including Chevy, Ford, Toyota and VW as well visiting various websites including Edmunds, Kelly Blue Book, IIHS - Insurance Institute for Hwy Safety and the Department of Transportation 1-4 star crash test ratings buying the Sentra was an easy decision. I watched several videos of both expert and not so expert reviews. Take all reviews with a grain of salt as everyone expects a vehicle priced under $20k to perform like a BMW or Benz. Let's be real about this.

Great experience

I recently purchased a 2014 Sentra an it has been a pleasure to drive! The interior is stylish and spacious and I like the trunk space. As for the acceleration, I think it is quite good (better) when compared to other similar vehicles I test drove (e.g. Corolla, civic). The sport mode really helps in the acceleration and it actually surprised me after driving other comparable cars. Also, I get a lot of complements on the new exterior look and sighs of envy from others when they see the MPGs. The CVT has been great and I have had no issues with it. It runs great on the highway and in town. This is my third new car and I am very happy with my purchase.

Purchased this car about a month ago. Had only driven 200 kilometers when I noticed a loud noise and vibration from the transmission. Turns out it needed a new torque converter. Replaced by the dealer however I still notice the vibrations others have mentioned (juddering stuttering) especially in normal mode when driving at 20 to 80 kilometers an hour. Most annoying as is the constant buzz at any speed. I only drive in sport mode now as it reduces the vibrations due to the engine revving higher. The problem is that the car is underpowered. They should have left the 2.0L My 2008 Sentra has no vibrations whatsoever at any speed with the 2.0L. Piece of junk - avoid buying this car!!!

I purchased this 2014 Sentra SR a few months back and within minutes of leaving the dealership I noticed the Shutter/Shudder/Jutter whatever you want to call it. 3 Nissan Dealerships and 200+ technician driven miles later and they still can't come up with a fix. I contacted Nissan North America about a month ago and have been going back and forth with the rudest, most incompetent customer service agents ever. Not only are they impolite and discourteous, but they actually have the nerve to talk down to you like you're some kind of idiot. Anyways, I'll keep everyone here in the loop as this process plays out. In the meantime, AVOID NISSAN LIKE THE PLAGUE!

Go to another brand, any other brand!

Have had this car for almost three months and I regret that decision every day. This car is doing the juttering that has been described by other reviewers. The standard line from the dealer is that it is designed to do that. Can't imagine why a manufacturer designed a transmission to vibrate. The icing on the cake is a leaky sunroof. Not talking about leaking in a carwash, this thing leaks whenever it rains. Once again, the dealer says that it is working as designed. The car "quality" is suspect and the service department is a joke. Avoid this car!

This is my first brand new car so maybe I am biased but we like our 2014 Sentra. I bought the car April 29 2014 and have driven nearly 2500 miles in a month. Not much road noise, it gets up to speed and cruises just fine, great MPG and I find it comfortable. I have read people complain about the car being underpowered but if you test drove it before buying it, you knew what you were getting. Driving around 100 miles round trip per day all highway and its great.

Avoid like the plague!

I purchased this car about 3 months ago. When I test drove it I didn't notice anything unusual. But after about a week of driving I noticed the car starts to "shudder" when slowing down to a stop or creeping in traffic. Every day, every time. It will keep it up until you either stop or accelerate. The CVT operates at two levels for 2014, basically Low and Drive. It's not dropping out of Drive to Low, causing terrible shuddering in the CVT. Nissan calls it "Juttering." So it's a known issue! I've been to the dealer 3X. Nissan Corporate Consumer and Regional Techs have been involved and say it's "normal." Really? That's BS, inexcusable and very poor engineering. This CVT is a disaster! AVOID...April 2016: After experiencing several other bad problems with the it and getting no satisfaction with a face-to-face arbitration meeting with Nissan, I traded the Sentra in a few months later on a 2015 Rogue SL AWD. The Rogue is superb, the Sentra is junk.
