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.
I love the interior design ie
leather/wood. Makes you feel like
you've bought something like an ES
300. The drive isn't bad at all
either. As long as the tires are good
and the vehicle is aligned properly
you could do 90mph all day with no
prob except for law enforcement.
I really hated the cupholders. Right
in front of the radio. I wish they
didn't blow up the new Altima and the
98 version is not very attractive.
Plus, why no retained power
accessories (radio, windows)?
