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.

Nice family sedan civic eater

Vehicle: 1997 Nissan Altima SE 4dr Sedan

I got my car a year ago. I have not had one problem out of it. It performs well and can easily take a civic highway or off the line. So performance wise you got to give it it`s props. As far as build quality I had a 95 and the building of this 97 I would have to say is greatly inproved all though you can not see it by eye. It gets good gas mileage if you can lay off the accelerator about 30 MPG Highway (5 Spd) I would recommend Altima to anyone. Reviews on this car says it needs a V6 truth be told the 2.4 L 5 spd. altima will take a Auto Maxima Anyday of the week. (No Lie Experiance) Its a nice car to modify if your into Turbos and engine upgrades... 2.4L 16V Altima A all around bomb car.
