2007 Nissan Sentra vs 2007 Toyota Corolla
We are considering these two vehicles, but I would like to know from real-world owners what your opinions are on these two vehicles. We need a replacement for our 98 Prizm (Corolla) that has been rock-solid mechanically since we bought it six years ago. Our needs/wants are, in generally decreasing order of importance:
(1) Reliability / dependability (Corolla historically dominates here)
(2) Safety (Sentra slightly better per safercar.gov)
(3) Comfort (long-distance driving, i.e. 2500+ miles round trip a couple times a year, wife with hip problems, both feel comparable)
(4) Room (for comfort and for luggage etc for these trips -- we love the Sentra for this)
Both are right in our price range, $15-17K, but I'd like to avoid a long-term repair cycle, which is what I'm worried about given the Sentra's past history. Other than that, we really like the car.
Thanks for any advice!
