1997 Nissan Altima GLE 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought Champagne GLE on a whim after Honda dealer jerked me around buying my 3rd Honda. Never drove a Nissan before, and Altima seemed like a big step up from Civic EX. Mfg was paying Mass excise tax for life of lease, that was swaying factor. Car itself, while comfy, wasn't much fun to drive, and economy was dreadful. Too small an engine dragging around a porker. Dealer brochure showed a 97 with auto climate control and CD, ended up with a decontented 97.5 with manual A/C and no CD.

Best Features

Solid, decent leather, comfortable seats, trunk room. Champagne ext with palomino leather int looked sharp, ez to keep clean. Others like it more than I did. Marlboro Nissan great dealer; added a ten changer CD at no cost when car came through without one.

Worst Features

Lose weight, bigger engine, handling, even for GLE could use less novocain in the shocks. Base radio awful, seats need more support.
