Best value in this
class and this price range. Looked
hard at 4-door auto
subcompacts. Got it down to
Civic, Protege, and Altima. All had
build quality, resale, value,
interior room, handling, and
reliability. On test
drives, the Altima stood out for
performance, ride, and interior. Got a
used GLE (for $12k, 29k miles, like
new). Very torquey 4 cylinder works
very well with the automatic. You'd
swear it was a V6. Terrific GLE
interior. Very smooth on the
highway, roomy interior, great trunk.
Completely trouble-free. Only downside
is the drab styling. Two thumbs up.
