Review of the 1997 Nissan Altima

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Luxurious, sporty, and well-constructed, the Nissan Altima is the perfect car for those who want an Infiniti, but are stuck with a Nissan budget.

  • Cons

    It will never happen, but we would still like to see a V-6 engine offered in the Altima.

  • What's New for 1997

    The 1997 models are virtually identical to 1996 models, except for the addition of new emissions equipment.

Reliable--just keeps on going

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Nissan Altima GLE 4dr Sedan (1997.5)

I have had few problems. The air bag light had to be repaired;luckily, it was still under warranty. Also, there was a gasket something-or-other which was repaired also under warranty. Otherwise, it has been super--extremely reliable. The manual is great, too. The yummy grey velvet upholstery is still in excellent condition as are the dashboard and all the compartments. Still running great at 65,000 miles!




I love my car made

Vehicle: 1997 Nissan Altima GLE 4dr Sedan (1997.5)

I asked to have the car made for me so it is a limited special edition. I get wonderful mileage, have an oil change every 3 months and have recently driven it back and forth to NC twice a month. I average 3/4 tank of gas for 200 miles. Other than new tires, I have had no major problems. This is my 3rd Nissan and I will hate to part with it.
