1993 Nissan Altima Sedan XE 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Best Features

PROS:Engine, performance, standard features (A/C, tachometer, folding mirrors), seat padding, trunk space, interior space (for its size), maintenance, handling, gas mileage, size CONS:Unsychronized first and reverse gear (might be my car only), I wish the drivers seat gave a little more room, but I'm large [6'1, >290 lbs.], location of the stereo, center console space, design of the glove box

Review

I drove my '93 car off the showroom floor in August of '93. It has 157,000 miles on it and still runs great. (Had to replace both axels, a couple of fuel injectors and the starter over the years.) Still on the ORIGINAL clutch. I've never seen a more reliable car in my life. Lots of stupid minor breakdowns, like the center console latch, the driver's sun visor and the FM portion of the radio barely works anymore. I'd take a working, reliable engine over all of that any day.


Best Features

Interior wood finish, automatic seatbelts, reliability.


Worst Features

Any improvements needed have probably been improved by now.

Review

I've only had the car a year, but when I got it it had 283,000 miles on it, now it has 293,000 and it still runs very well. I haven't had a problem with the motor at all. It gets up to speed fast, and it hasn't let me down yet. I've only had to replace the starter.
