Aside from maintenance issues, it was actually a pretty neat little vehicle. I used it as a daily when my fun car was a C6 Z06. It got 31mpg on long road-trips doing 80mph, and it had more technology and features than my 2015 CX5 Touring.
Probably cost more too adjusting for awd and inflation..lot of $ for a nice Sentra I always thought. I regularly saw 31 on my 2002 c230 that had 192hp and 208 lb-ft of torque..26k and included 4 years of maintenance..nice little ride that.
How many tanks of premium did you run before you tested?
Just one, I know that is not the correct way to measure. But I had it running on 95, drove it until I had 11 miles left on the fuel gage and filled it up with 102. I honestly don't believe I've mixed a lot of 95 with 102.
I know the cx5 2.5 uses 87 but does anyone use mid grade or premium? With those high compression ratios I wonder if there would be any performance improvement with the other fuels?

Yep that is a possibility. Do you know what brand of gas you put it in? Did you switch the brand and gas station for 89 octane after the incident happened?This summer I noticed the 2013's 2.0 engine was accelerating roughly. 90k miles. First time this occurred.
Switched from 87 to 89 and problem went away. I suspect a bad tank of gas so later switched back to 87 and engine still running good.
Yep must've been bad batch of gas.
