1997 Nissan Altima Sedan GXE 4dr Sedan (1997.5)


Review

I just handed my 1997.5 Altima down to the kids with 158000 miles on it and expect many more good miles from it. The car has been very comfortable and reliable over the years. I did all the scheduled maintenance and the car has been great. I upgraded to the 2007 Altima and the kids are happy to have my old faithful. It should get another 100k miles easy.


Best Features

Reliability and consistently good gas mileage.

Review

Good used car for a student. As reliable as Honda and Toyota but costs you much less. It had 108K when I bought it 3 1/2 months ago. Engine and transmission are running great so far.


Best Features

Reliability. Cheaper price than Honda and Toyota. Smooth transmission. Good and powerful engine.


Worst Features

Fuel economy, interior design could improve. Suspension a bit hard for passengers (OK for driver).

Review

I don't have any major complaints with this Altima, though I can't say I love the car. It has been dependable, but doesn't have enough cargo room for me. I would have preferred a car with rear seats that go down to extend cargo room. One thing - the paint job is the worst. It didn't take long for the paint to start peeling and chipping and for it to become oxidized. I have had to replace the alternator, windshielf wiper motor and have had a problem with the rear brakes.

Review

I agree that the mileage is poor with this vehicle. But really bothers me is that I need to put in a new transmission at only 56,0000 miles. There are two recalls on this vehicle 1) transmission part 2) seatbelt Will not buy another one, will go back to Honda Accord.
