I bought my Altima in February 2011, after spending months searching for an affordable 5 speed car.
For an 18 year old with $1000 to spend, it was the best money could buy.
It had all manual amenities (windows, locks, seats) but everything worked on it.
The A/C only needed a recharge, and while not the strongest or coldest, it was fine for a small car.
It had 170,000 miles yet the engine ran fine.
I thought for a car of it's class it had good performance.
Even though my mom had a new durango, we'd often take my car for trips due to the much better gas mileage.
I NEVER had to fix anything with the car, but sadly I had to sell it for tuition. Otherwise, I would run it into the ground.

I think about getting a different
vehicle, but my 93 Altima won't let
me! I haven't spent a dollar on it
with the exception of tires, brakes,
and general maintenance. I couldn't
even change the timing belt on it,
because the rubber belt doesn't exist!
Engine is dynamite, it is quick,
responsive.............cannot get rid
The Infiniti-inspired Altima replaces the aging Stanza. Swooping sheet metal, a longer wheelbase and increased cabin size distinguish the Altima from its lackluster predecessor. The Altima is powered by a twin-cam four-cylinder that produces 150 horsepower. A driver airbag is standard on the Altima, as are motorized seatbelts.
