Review

I bought this car in 2001,when the car
was just three years old. It ran great
for the ppast two and a half years.
There were no major problems with the
vehicle. About a week ago I found out
that my engine basically came apart.
There was plenty of oil in the car and
the car was well maintained because I
have a mechanic in the family who has
been working on cars for the past
twenty years. He fixes government
vehicles for a living. The car was
bought a Nissan dealership and was
supposed to be a certified used
vehicle.This may have just been bad
luck but I advise you to be very
careful when purchasing this vehicle.

Review

Bought the car used with around 50K
miles and have beed driving it hard
ever since. It takes it all and keeps
moving. Im a salesman and spend hours
in my car, and this Altima is a lot of
fun and very comfortable to be in. I
love the sunroof, the leather seats are
always appreciated and I havent had any
work done to the car yet except new
tires and oil changes. Sound system is
great for factory, and visual view
through the windshield is second to
none. Have no complaints with this car
except the rear end which is kinda
boring. Ohh, and as with any car, more
horsepower is great.


Best Features

comfort, RELIABILITY, space, ease of use, ease of reach for anything, fuel usage.


Worst Features

They dont make this same designs anymore so who really cares.

Review

I leased this car in April '98 it was a
loaded GLE, as a graduation gift. Since
then until late Oct. '01, this was 1 of
the most reliable cars ever. Everyone
I knew loved my car, some even drove
it. Small troubles in '99 w/ a bad
battery at 22K and later around 29K the
cd/cass. unit went bad. Also had 2
accidents in Spring & Winter '00,
despite those the car still drove like
new. I was on top of maintenance &
cleaning like crazy and had compliments
that it looked and ran like new. Got
rid of it in late '01 since the lease
was up.


Best Features

luxury-car feel for a fraction of the cost, stereo sounded alomst like bose, quite fast for a 4 cyl, very quiet


Worst Features

ABS and 4-wheel disc brakes should've been std. on GXE & GLE, paint quality needs to improve, better quality leather, auto climate control on GLE, 4- cyl was good but could've been faster
