The write-up on this one is great. If anyone knows how to scrape it so it doesn't disappear, please do. I fail at computers.

2006 Nissan Sentra
Manual 5-speed Transmission
79,000 miles
Silver - really more of a warm silver - very light bronze, maybe? But Craigslist doesn't give that as an option, so "silver" it is.
4-Door Sedan
4-Cyl, 1.8 ltr Engine
FWD
Air-Conditioning
AM/FM Radio and CD Player
Dual Front Airbags
Cloth Interior
Manual Windows
Manual Locks
32 MPG on the highway / 24 MPG city

What's wrong with it? It has a small dent in the front bumper (see photo), a small dent in the driver's side passenger door (see photo), a squeaky idler pulley, and it's missing 2 hubcaps. We plan to get these things fixed and repost on Craigslist at a higher price, but we thought someone might want it "as is" for cheaper. We would! We do less work + you get a car for cheaper = win/win as far as we can tell.

Why are we selling it? We bought this car this summer from the previous, long-time owner. It's been as advertised - great commuter car, reliable, low miles, blah, blah, blah. But we bought it for our 16-year-old teenage daughter without asking her first. DON'T DO THAT, parents. Unless, you know, you're actually prepared to put the kibosh on the complaining factor; and, by "put the kibosh on the complaining factor," I mean more than saying, over and over (and over and over), "Seriously? SERIOUSLY. We bought you A CAR. Or we bought US a car you're allowed to use because - hahahaha! we're SO not buying you a car to keep -- but STILL, Child; BE GRATEFUL for A CAR you get to USE," because we've tried that technique, and, frankly, it's useless. Just... totally useless. As much as we've tried to deny it, current evidence suggests we're those new-fangled, permissive parents who raise entitled children; we are, after all, selling this car because our daughter doesn't like it. She doesn't like that it's silver. She doesn't like that it's a manual (too bad, kid - guess what we're getting you next? ANOTHER MANUAL because LIFE SKILLS, baby girl). She doesn't like that it doesn't have power windows and locks. In other words, she never would've survived the 90's. Never, ever. Look; I'm not proud of us, either, selling a perfectly good car to buy something our kid will like better, but it's the truth. Plus, her friend just got in a car accident in a Volvo - a bad accident with flipping and flying and all those things you do NOT want to be in a car while it's doing - and survived, so our daughter began a campaign for a car with more metal, even though the Nissan has a good safety rating, and it worked. Wearing us down with whining + having one, actual, legitimate point that capitalizes on unreasonable, illogical parental fear? <<< She's not entirely without Life Skills, after all.

In other words... pffffttttttt. Anyone want to buy a perfectly good car?

You can pray for us,
Beth

P.S. My husband just read this and wants you to know *I'm* the permissive parent and he is certainly not. If it was up to him, she'd have this car forever and damn the complaining. That's true. Fine. Whatever.

Always cut and paste the text because it gets erased.

have a set of BBC adjustable suspension for Mazda Miata. Two way adjustable full soft or full hard with external reservoir to hold the fluid. Just twist the sac on the bottom to adjust stiffness. Rides really soft at first but after adjusting to full hard it maintains stiffness and has a deep stroke for excellent ride quality. If you ride to aggressively it will bottom out so be careful. Sometimes leaks from the tip when abused but it goes away eventually. Fits all year Mazda Miata.

do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers.

Sigh is it that difficult to copy/paste?

Seems like a reasonable price for a clean car in the northeast. I'd have bought this when I was car-shopping last year if it were located in the NJ/NY/CT area.

It didn't. It's a '99 Sport. I'm not really seeing the unicornness, but it is a good price for the miles. Nothing fantastic, but good.

Too clean for me

Not a bad price, especially for the mileage. Would make a great starting point for an NB autocross setup since it's the lightest one that was offered.

The unicorn-ness is that it's a 99 Sport.
