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.
i brought the altima in 2000.. i love
it very very much and i will always
stick with the altimas.. i love the way
the the inside is built.. i love the
way it drives.. The car is very sexy
and it fits me completey..in 3 years im
planning to buy me another altima
i love the wood that it has inside..
its has overdrive and my car has alot
of get up..it reminds me of a smaller
version of the maxima
the gas mileledge need to improve.. and
the painting job also.. but i still
love my altimA
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.
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.
