Thoughts on a 2016 Nissan Sentra SR


Topic starter

Dear Scotty, 

I was wondering what your thoughts are on a 2016 Nissan Sentra SR with just over 101,000 miles on it. I'm looking to buy a more fuel efficient vehicle than my current 06 Toyota 4 Runner and the Sentra SR caught my eye. I know they're notorious for bad CVTs but I'm curious with proper maintenance such as changing the transmission fluid every 60,000 miles, as well as driving no more than 40 miles a day, could this car last 5 years? Thanks.

No. For Nissan, the CVT fluid should be changed every 30-40k miles and most likely it has not been changed in its101k miles.
