1997 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan

Review

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.

Favorite Features

I like the power the car brings out at low RPMs. No timing chain to worry about. 24 to 29 Mpg.

Suggested Improvements

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!
