A Decent Commuter
By South Shore Steve on
2000 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan
Purchased this car for my wife who
ended up disliking it after 6 months.
She didn't like the way it felt in
relatively light cross winds. Car gets
decent mileage (25-27 mpg on regular
grade) and the 2.4L provides adequate
power. Handling is so so and the ride
is busy. I've had to replace a
serpentine belt idler pulley twice,
otherwise reliability has been good.
Original Firestone tires (16 inch)
were awful, running Kuhmo's now which
are great value. It's a good car for
commuting, look elsewhere if fun to
drive is high on your list.
Gas mileage, decent power, fairly
reliable, comfortable interior.
Jittery ride, handling could be
better, not much fune to drive,
original Firestones are awful
