I don't know much about the Sentra's but Nissan's in general are usually very reliable. One of my buddies has a 240 SX with ~160,000 miles and it runs like a top. I had a '86 300ZX that was a great car.
I would get someone who's mechanically inclined to look at it first but w/ only 75,000 miles i would think it has plenty of life left.

they tend to last a long time, only 75 thousand miles though, that seems to low for it to be a 89, but yeah, get it checked out by a respectible mechanic and if he says its good, then buy it, thats a good price

89 Sentra's are bulletproof. My dad had 2 88 Sentra's. One of them had 220,000 Miles on it and it sounded immaculate. Never burned oil or anything.
