2000 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


Review

It's been excellent overall with the exception of the ext. body -- bumber front and back are weak spots for trouble....front quarter-panel also. It has been extremely reliable -- Altimas have a weak spot on the power windows also, the switches on the doors, the motors and the regulators go out early. Engine is devine in every way: reliable, smooth, strong.

2000 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


Review

We've had this car for a little over 2 years now and have had no problems at all. Regular maintenence and it runs like a dream. It's not the hottest car on the road, but with 2 toddlers in the back, reliability and safety are the most important things. We're at about 78K miles, and we're going to keep driving it until it falls apart, which probably won't be for a looooong time. My first car was an old beater Nissan Sentra, and it never let my down. Right now, our other car is a pick- up...not too practical with kids, so we're looking to buy a boring old mini- van, and the '02 Nissan Quest is looking pretty good at the moment!


Favorite Features

Overdrive let's me beat almost everyone from the line at a light; my first car with a CD player, and we use it constantly; remote locking/unlocking with key fob; A/C blows ice


Suggested Improvements

The road noise is a little louder than on some pricier sedans, but maybe we just have cheap tires. Otherwise none (not that it would matter, as the car has been totally redesigned)

2000 Nissan Altima GLE 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased the car new and had not had any real problems. The Firestone tires wore out in less than 35,000 miles. The first brakes are VERY loud for the first few miles. I would recommend this car to anyone. I have 70K and it is still running strong.


Favorite Features

Enjoy the sun roof.


Suggested Improvements

Needs better brakes and tires. Could use a few more MPG only gets about 21 MPG around city.

2000 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


Review

Original owner and 102K+ and 5 years later equally satisfied now as it was new. No modelwide recalls, reliability as solid as you can get. Never at dealer for repair. 2 brake jobs, 2 sets of tires, 1 battery and regular maint given to the car. Starts on first turn every time. Interior is very ergonomic. 24-32 MPG lifetime. Only issues: ABS, side bags, 4 whl disks opt; no trac, curtains or brake asst avbl. Tight rear esp foot and knee. Trunk hinges impede. Wheel covers rattle. Steering wheel offset to left 1". Can live with all listed. Nissan has a loyal fan here. Heard lots of good reviews of this car and other Nissan products. You'll only see me driving vehicles with a Nissan emblem on them.


Favorite Features

Entertaining drive. Eager to please. Rev-happy engine. 155hp adequate in most situations. O/D button on shifter handy to pass. Power windows/locks/mirrors/entry great perks on entry car. Only wish for things not checked at purchase (power seat, alloys & 16s). Overall, great job. Another one please?


Suggested Improvements

Any improvements that are needed for this car have been addressed with the 2002 redesign. As an added note, the 2000 model year is the same basic car dating back to 1994 when the previous model was introduced. This means that all problems have been ironed out, but also it is an old design. Ying-yang

2000 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


Review

Purchased 2000 GXE off lease in 2001 with 12K on it. Drives like a smaller car and predictable if pushed. No rattles or squeaks. Economical, but still very able to have fun with. Only had brake pads, serpentine belt, and tires replaced (now with over 85,000). Very reliable. Yup, the body style is bland, but who cares? For a car payment under $240/mo to own, you simply cannot beat it. Plan to drive into the ground (150- 200K+ miles). The A/C is cold and other climate conrols are fine. Literally, the only complaint may be that the e-brake handle protrudes into leg room on larger drivers. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a well built commuter car on the cheap.


Favorite Features

Cold A/C, wood grain interior trim, peppy engine, good milage, predictable handling, understated design, reliability, reliability, reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Offer window tint, power adjustable driver seat, better noise insultation, ABS brakes would be nice. (These might already be offered on the higher end models).
