1998 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


Review

This is my first car and it has been a delight to own. Driven conservativley the car has great gas milage. And if you choose, punch the throttle and watch the revs rise. For a Four cylinder this car has great torque. I've taken this car from nyc to buffalo,ny , 400 mi each way, three times round trip already and the car has never failed me once. This car has been an excellent beginners car, Its fast enough to be fun but not too fast and most importantly reliable. Only problems to date have been an intemitantly fading light on the radio display and squeaky rear drums.


Best Features

Torquey for a four cylinder. An alright sound system for an oem. Strong brakes.


Worst Features

The seats are torture in this car anything longer than 1hr will leave yor lower back in pain. Standard ABS. Standard rear armrest. Lit ashtray, at night its a game of chance to hit the ash tray.

1998 Nissan Altima SE 4dr Sedan


Review

iv had this car since may of 98 when they came out. this car is great. its an SE with leather, cd, abs, manual, sport suspension (stiffer ride) and power drivers seat. seats are comfortable and the back seats are those of a bmw. i have 120,000 miles on the car and have not done anything to it. over six years on the original battery and still going! once this thing is in 5th gear you can go from 60 to 100 in a blink! fast car! buy it!


Best Features

leather, 5 speed, gas milage, trunk size, reliability!


Worst Features

front end could use spicing up, better factory rims. basically nothing. great car.
