2009 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

Sentra 4-cyl

  • miles


I'm currently financing a car. My oil runs out too fast. In one month I probably used 1000 miles max and I've already had to get a oil change 3 times. I'm afraid my engine is either going to lock up or blow up and as a young driver I'm very scared of my safety especially when driving on the parkways.
