2002 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

Sentra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The 2002 Nissan Sentra ran fine for the first year. There were no major issues concerning the electrical system. In 2003 I noticed the turn signal would occasionally not work. For the last 4 years it still does not work correctly. The problem is very intermittent. It may work properly one day and not the next. Normally you will flip the turn indicator and nothing will happen. Then if you turn the steering wheel it would start to work. Sometimes it will not work no matter if you turn the wheel. Even when it does work the signal does not blink at a normal repetition. On two occasions I took the car to a dealer to get it fixed under the warranty. Both times I was told that it was a sensor and that problem was fixed. However, it still did not work properly.
