1996 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan

Review

After 7 years of ownership, at 26,000 miles and 2 weeks out of warranty, an O2 sensor goes out ($90) , 4 weeks later, my camshaft positioner died ($500)and left me on the side of the road, then another week later, another but different O2 sensor goes out ( another $90)- all within 27,500 miles but just over 3 years old. Informed Nisson but no help. A number of little things went out for the next 4 years ( unknown $$$$) and at 73,000 the alternator quit ($335), then a month later, the car left me on the side of the road with a major electrical problem that killed the battery & alternator due to wiring shorts under the dash.

Best Features

Strong 4 cylinder motor and I average around 31-32 miles per gallon on gas

Worst Features

The seats get very uncomfortable after an hour on the road and I still have the factory book that advertised how the Altima is problem free car. Don't bet on it
