1992 Nissan Sentra XE GA16DE Engine Code "E"
This is a one owner Nissan, bought in 1992 by my wife Peggy. When we first met in 1999, the car had 106,483 miles on it. Peggy said she never had any trouble with the car and she had regular maintenance done. This maintenance log begins in 1999 with the purchase of new tires. I use that purchase as a starting place because it has the date and mileage on the receipt.
I'll mention this: in December of 2012 the air conditioner is as it came from the factory; it has never failed and never needed any service. I think that is remarkable!
Routine maintenance such as oil changes, etc, are not listed on this log.
