Don't expect much for the later models
By Mike K. "Mike K." - December 28, 2007
If you own a 2003 Nissan Sentra, I would not expect too much from this book. The pictures and even the text refers mostly to pre 2000/2001 Sentras and 200SX's and a lot of stuff changed in the 2002-2004 Sentras. It's as thorough as Haynes manuals get, I guess, but it's almost entirely useless in many areas if you have a later model Sentra (if you have a 1995-1999 Sentra then maybe it will be worth it, though).
Only reason why I did not return it is because this is the only repair manual I can find for the 2003 Nissan Sentra. Chilton's does not seem to have one. I checked their site and it looks like they MIGHT have one in digital format but there isn't any info. You have to buy it first and then see how you like it.

Cons: - Says it covers multiple varients of the same model, but often has diagrams for only one of them. - Many of the more common repair tasks (brakes, oil change, body work, etc.. ) are heavily coppied between the vairous Haynes manuals for different models, so often lack spesific details that would be helpfull. You can usually overcome this with some common sense, but i have found several times... read more

Book has all the information you need to get the job done. I wish it had a bit more information on my specific year, but has a decent amount.
