I'm a first time car buyer and after some research (thanks edmunds!) I purchased the 98 nissan altima used with only 27K miles. It's been 7 months and so far no unexpected problems. the car is solid handeling, very fuel efficient, and overall fun to drive. for a car that was used, many of my friends thought it was brand new (it runs that good).
I own the automatic and It's engine is just as nible as the next. solid handeling I drive with confidence in any weather.
great interior layout.
seats are a bit unergonomic. cup holder could be at a better spot.
