Best sedan I ever owned
By sfbayarea on
1997 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan
A lot better than I've expected in a
mid class sedan. The 150bhp performs
better than my 1990 Honda Prelude of
140bhp. Very reliable considering this
was a previous rental. I only had the
intention of keeping it a couple years
but ended up still driving it. It now
has 76K miles. Recently spent $620 on
a gasket repair but I still think its a
good car. I will buy another Nissan.
I like the power the car brings out at
low RPMs. No timing chain to worry
about. 24 to 29 Mpg.
Need better rear seats. Transmission
fluid changed before 45K miles. check
brakes. Changed intake manifold gasket
at 75K miles which cost $20 part & $600
labor. Mechanic said this is usual
Nissan occurrence due to quality of
gasket. So if you loose gas mileage,
have it checked!
