2001 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 102014

Sentra 4-cyl

  • 17 miles


Was traveling eastbound on pa St rd 31, at 45mph, around 6pm, November 10. 2014, a 2006 Chevy Malibu darted out from a side street without yielding in front of my vehicle. As the other vehicle when darting out from intersection, the vehicle was directly in front of mine, therefore was unable to stop to prevent crash. Swerved right to try to avoid collision but was unable to avoid contact. Contact was made from the front driver side of my vehicle, as well as the rear driver side of the other vehicle involved. There was no air bag deployment and my vehicle is equipped with driver and passenger air bags.

Multiple issues with 2001 Sentra. Steering has become progressively tighter. Dealer claims no problem. Crunching noise from shocks/struts when driving over speed bumps or when exiting driveway onto road (uneven pavement). Worse when cold. Dealer claims no problem. Brakes make scraping noise when applied. Worse when cold. Car has become very uncomfortable to drive - tight/difficult steering and noisy suspension. Drives like a 10 year old Chevy instead of a 2 year old Japanese car. I should have kept my Honda!!!
