Are you kidding? Much of the buying power of the world makes $2-200/month. Think South Asia, China, Brazil, Mexico, etc. They can't afford the current Sentra which costs $17K, but they can definitely afford a freshly-made 90's Nissan/Suzuki/Isuzu/Daihatsu/VW/Toyota which would cost $5-10K, and dirt cheap used.

The old/original Beetle continued to be made in Mexico until a couple/few years ago, for the exact same reason that this Sentra/Sunny/Tsuru continued to be made.

^ that's not much of the world's buying power. it might be much of the world's PEOPLE, but the state of california alone dwarfs the aggregate buying power of those folks making 1-200/month

"It doesn't have a lot of the safety equipment you might expect to find in more recently designed cars, but the B13 Sentra performed reasonably well in crash tests in its day, and is still probably safer than driving a cheap Chinese-built car. Think "they don't build em like they used to" and you're on the right track"


-CarBuzz article from 2013 about the Tsuru haha

and my bad, I meant B13 sentra earlier
