1996 Nissan Altima GLE 4dr Sedan


Review

This 1996 Altima GXE was driven by an older lady on her less than frequent trips around Denver. It was bought at fair market price or so I thought. It was gone over by a mechanic prior to purchase, who confirmed the motor mounts were shot, so I took that at face value. Later, the automatic trans seized up, and it became quite apparent from my research that many of these transmissions have a flaw in the valve body design. So fine, if your has not been replaced it will eventually weaken in this crucial area. I am in the process of replacing this transmission, and will need to buy at lease one half shaft with cv joint.


Favorite Features

Not quite sure but for the promise of a low price.


Suggested Improvements

Transmissions.

Review

Like an old friend, my trusty Altima has been with me through a lot of my young adulthood. When I first got her, I remember being very happy with the swift acceleration. Over the years, I have have had a few problems, but not unusual based on the number of miles these problems occurred at.


Favorite Features

Easy and affordable to maintain, roomy, reliable, No major breakdowns, feels safe and comfortable, responsive, good pickup, rounded shape seems aerodynamic and helps reduce noise.


Suggested Improvements

Turning circle could be shorter, reduce probability of electrical problems.
