Nissan Sentra 5 (B15) Sedan (2000-2006)
Nissan Sentra 5 (code B15) is a compact sedan in production from 2000 to 2006. It was available with a range of inline-4 engines that displaced 1.8 to 2.5 liters.
Even though the B15 Sentra was limited to I4, the engines have built over the years a good reputation for reliability. Thus, while inadequate output-wise, they serve well in an economy car.
Utility-minded owners will have to keep in mind that the car's cargo space may not be sufficient. It also has a basic suspension setup, which is nothing surprising.
