Other than that, the Sentra rolls into 2012 unchanged.
Although it's 6 years into its current generation, the Nissan Sentra 4-door compact car continues to sell well and historically has been one of the automaker's bestselling vehicles.

Many new owners are reporting that they're finding good values at their local Nissan dealers, who are attempting to clear the lots before the new 2013 Sentras arrive, and the new owners are adding that they're pleasantly surprised once they spend some time with their vehicles.
In addition, the Sentra has a tight back seat, and some testers find its ride too harsh.
