I purchased this used Nissan from my
local Nissan dealer with 17,000 miles
on it.The 1999 Altima now has 116,000
miles and I have replaced the front
brakes twice, replaced a battery, and
replaced the tires 3 times. This car
has required NO OTHER REPAIRS. Change
the oil and oil filter every 3,000
miles and enjoy. This is the fourth
Nissan I have owned since 1991. It is
the best car for the money!
Not bad for self-service maintenance.
Highway mileage is good at about 26
mpg. Overall handling very good with
good tires and proper inflation. 2.4L
engine has the needed guts. Smooth
automatic transmission. Comfortable
seating for all front passengers.
Tilt steering wheel needs more vertical
movement. Could use better headlight
focus and brighter light. Needs to
return to pivoting side mirrors used on
earlier models. Increase the side
glass thickness to reduce road
