I had good experience with my 1993 Nissan Altima despite its age. I drove in all weather, snow, ice, mountains, forests and was impressed with its performance for an ordinary 2 wheel drive car. This is the first generation of this model, which I believe is one of the best ones built by Nissan.

I bought this car from a priest for $7,800 w/ 78,000 miles. This car also had the on screen display (which puts your speed on the windshield). This car was great. I sold it in 2002 w/ 124,000 miles b/c I wanted a 4wd for the snow. For approx. 50,000 miles and 5 years, the car was wonderful. There was nothing out of the ordinary. Excellent & always reliable.However, when I was selling it, they found a $1,000 oil leak that was "normal for Altimas." Either way - the oil leak was minor and the car was fantastic. It was my first & certainly won't be my last. Nissan is great & I plan on getting the 350z Roadster. I will be a customer for life.

Purchased this car from the Nissan
dealership as the 2nd owner for only
$5500 with 99K miles on it. The first
owner had the extended 100K mile
warranty and bought a new Maxima.
It's been a little over 2 year's and i
have doubled the vehicle mileage to
200K miles and the thing still goes
strong. The engine is great. Runs
like a champ and starts every time.
Have had problems though. The timing
chain went bad around 142K and was
expensive at $1100. WARNING. Make
sure the timing chain is fixed
preferebly by Nissan as a shade tree
job can end up costing you a lot more
in the long run.
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.
