I have the Sporty version and it's not bad at all. Its easy to work on and reliable so far. It runs good, and cruses pretty solid at 80-90mph on the Interstate. It's a decent, solid, and sound lil car. I would be afraid to take off anywhere in it. Mine has 167k, and I feel 200k+ is very do- able. The have a that strong little 2.4 dohc that come in the legendary hardbody pick up.

Traded it in on a new '08 Altima last week. My '01 played a large role in my deciding to stay with Nissan. If you're looking for a rock-solid, reliable, and fun to drive used sedan, the Altima SE is one of the best. No major problems, just some small niggles (described below), every car has them. Very comfortable, fuel efficient (30 mpg on the highway, at least), great around town and for long-distance cruising. If you enjoy the act of driving, don't bother with the GXE or GLE... the SE is the way to go. It may not be the quickest in a straight line, but it'll surprise you in the twisties. Overall, I was very happy with the car, kinda hated to see it go. Highly recommended.
Altima 2001 GXE with 30,000 miles - getting trim noises from the driver's door - hard to tell if it's from top or bottom, front or back and is intermittent so it goes away at times after slamming door...
