2001 Nissan Sentra Owners Manual – Nissan entirely re-designed its Sentra. It’s a greater car than the prior technology: a good deal for a longer time, a little broader and a bit higher. Fortunately, the Sentra’s sleek-working personality has become maintained.
There’s more power under the hood, notably for the XE and GXE models, which have a new 1.8-liter engine. A performance package turns the 2.0-liter SE model into a little sports sedan it appears as well as in performance. In fact, the all-new Nissan Sentra is now a significantly less-expensive competitor for Volkswagen’s hot-selling Jetta. And that is very a compliment.
2001 Nissan Sentra Model and Price
Sentra is available as a number of models countrywide: base XE, effectively-prepared GXE, sporty SE and environmentally aware CA (Clean Air). Two engines are readily available.
The selection begins with the $11,649 XE, a stripper model that only a small percentage of Sentra customers will get. The XE comes along with Nissan’s new 126-horsepower 1.8-liter engine that switches the earlier 1.6-liter engine. An $1199 XE Alternative Package will make it more comfortable. But at that point, it may seem sensible to move around the GXE.
GXE is likely to be the most popular model. It starts at $13,499. GXE involves the new 1.8-liter engine and provides a host of features that change it into a cozy sedan: cruise control, irregular wipers, tachometer, a compact disc stereo system and power windows, wall mirrors and doorway fastens. Having an auto transmission and a GXE Ease Package it retails for $14,449. Sentra GXE can also be equipped with non-obligatory 15-in. wheels and wheels as properly as anti-lock brakes, which we advise very. It is also available with recommended side-affect airbags for the top seats, creating the Sentra a safety aware option to an even bigger but older car. The two the XE and GXE have rear drum braking system.
2001 Nissan Sentra Exterior
Nissan has learned that processed and nimble tiny economy cars never promote also well if they are homely. It discovered this from the 1995-1999 Sentra. There is a lot of competitors for economy cars originating from bigger used cars, which are now off-rent and offering at eye-catching discount rates. However, many men and women, especially clever woman purchasers, favor new, inexpensive sedans to used cars.
So this new 2001 Nissan Sentra is a beautiful car. Its design is now as clever as the Civic. “Compact” is a relative phrase, as every one of these cars often grows after a while. The new Sentra forces the restrictions of its sub-compact business category. It is beyond other 4-doorway compact sedans: It is more than the Mitsubishi Mirage by a number of ins, the Mazda Protege and Toyota Corolla by 3 ins, and the Honda Civic by two inches. And it appears it: The extended body isn’t nestled underneath the bumpers at the finishes of the car, making it appear even longer.
2001 Nissan Sentra Interior Features
At first, the front seats appear like normal economy car perches, but once you’re in them they think much roomier. 1 cause is that the seats are adjustable seven approaches, as an alternative to the normal four. The roomy new interior holds a lot more people and freight. The rear seats are capable to accommodate adults now, and all sorts of chairs roles give a lot more inhaling and exhaling room. An available 60/40 divided foldable rear seatback can be unlatched from the trunk. These three seat placements in the rear have 3-stage belts, though a few back again there is amasses. The four outboard belts are built with automated tensioners, an important safety feature for an economy car. This is devices that a great many greater sedans did not have just five-years back.
The stereo system regulates are located on top of the central gaming system, leading them to be easy to change, and the silver trim of the faceplate fits the most recent in European Continental design found on the fashionable Ford Focus. Other regulates are uncomplicated and simple to operate.
2001 Nissan Sentra Driving Impressions
This new Sentra hums proper together. We drove a GXE with a 5-speed guide to 100 miles per hour very easily in the wasteland, and yes it was revving at a comparatively quiet 4500 rpm. The car rode as steady as the bigger Altima at this particular speed, and breeze and wheel sound was really low. This is the type of car that can get even choir instructors and librarians plenty of speeding passes. At the legitimate speed restriction of 70 mph, the engine converts just 3100 rpm in fifth and the auto-outfitted model revs even lower.
We had been enthused by the better SE models. The SE has wonderful, sensitive braking systems and stops as confidently as the major Maxima and even a BMW or Audi. That performance is due to the rear disc brakes, and an effectively-damped suspension. The difference in brake pedal feel is wide: The drum-outfitted GXE experienced a soft-experiencing, almost spongy brake pedal in comparison to the SE models. The sportier models’ pedals feel company, and even though the pedal journey is quick, there is no loss of sensitivity. It feels like you end up utilizing much less low body muscle tissue to avoid the SE models.
