Gee....going for the Mini-maxima look? It looks even worse on the Sentra than it does on the Maxima.

The rear lights are much better than the current ones though.

Looks like Nissan is going to be using that "buck tooth" with the logo in the center of the grill now and I say it looks fugly
.They started off with great designs with their latest releases but of late something went horribly wrong.

Also buy all the cars being similar builds BRAND LOYALTY instead of CAR .LOYALTY. If you can get a bigger and better version of the car you already have and love wont you? That's fords problem with the Focus, there really is nowhere to go from the focus, besides maybe a better focus. But what do u do once u hit a dully loaded ZTS or SVT? You ran out of places to go. And with both those trims selling well equipped for under $20,000, that's not hard to do.

And as much as you knock Nissan they were in some pretty bad $ trouble a few years ago, thanks to the French, there still around, and on the rebound.

So you can look at that Nissan/Ford/Dodge/Honda and know from a light/door/fender what manufactuer your dealing with.

Ford is doing this also, but the ford front ends look MUCH better than this neo-impressionist/neo-surrealist (sorry, I like art!) front ends. Euro all the way!

Oh, come on, guys. This is just a stopgap facelift until the NEW Sentra on the Megane architecture comes out (that's the one I'm watching for...a hatchback is strongly rumored...) Say what you will about the '04 Sentra...it IS an improvement over the current one. I still think it's an ugly little sedan though.
