I bought this car because of the Nissan name plate and I was not disappointed at all. It starts without hesitation everyday, even in cold weather. It now has 148000 miles on the odometer and the performance is still great for a automobile this old. Loved it so much that I bought a 2003 Altima. Gas mileage is a little low, only 245 miles per tank. The only problems that I've had have been sqeaky brakes that never seem to be quiet with any repair,a check engine light that pops on when nothing is wrong with the car, and recently a very bad oil leak that I have gotten repaired twice($500 each repair!)that seems to come back every couple of months.But I would still recommend this car to anyone!
Engine performs consistently, sunroof, and the reliability that comes with the Nissan nameplate.
Everything has definately been addressed in the 03 Altima.
