2000 Nissan Altima Sedan SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my Altima new and have loved it since day one! In 1999 I drove a rental on a business trip and fell in love--otherwise I never would have noticed this car. At 150,000 miles I spent some money to replace water pump and radiator, but other than that I have had almost no repair work done on this very reliable car. After 10 years, I'm still comfortable taking the car on long road trips and it looks great! The engine is great with 1 or 2 passengers, sluggish with the AC on or with a carload--what do you expect from a 2.0L engine?


Best Features

I love the SE model with the spoiler! The car hugs the road and handles beautifully--I actually accelerate into curves. It looks great painted black.


Worst Features

Just a bit more headroom would be nice. I'm 5'10" and had to forgo the sunroof for headroom. Also a larger trunk opening would make the huge trunk much more useful.

Review

Fun to drive and reliable. Not the quickest car on the road, but definitely not a slouch either. Comfortably seats 4 adults, with a suprisingly large trunk. I would have loved the manual instead of the auto. Comfortable over long drives, the car didn't get uncomfortable over a 10 hour stretch and back. Not easy on the gas around town unfortunately. Typical Japanese reliability and build quality. Interior is nothing amazing, but practical and easy to use.


Best Features

good handling reliability of a nissan SE model looks good in black

Review

I really appreciate the Altima's handling and the engine is tolerable. But I have had several problems. I bought the car used and it developed some very annoying rattles. The intake manifold gasket went after one year (Nissan covered the repair), and the instrument cluster died on the interstate, and came back to life about 30 miles later. I love the way the car looks and handles, but I am dissapointed with the mechanical problems I have an encountered. I am really having a hard time deciding whether to keep it. With gas prices on the rise it may have to go. I typically get less than 20 mpg. I have a 6 cylinder Jeep that gets better gas mileage.


Best Features

Styling and handling is superb


Worst Features

Gas mileage! Traction on wet roads. Work out the electrical bugs.
