2001 Nissan Altima SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Purchased an SE preowned for $7k with 61k miles, sunroof, manual tranny, 6 CD changer. Reasonably refined with quiet engine and few vibrations, absolutely no torque steer, very little wind noise, and the interior is well executed and looks sporty in black (love the seat fabrics). The steering is well weighted but could offer more feedback (might improve with better tires), the 4 wheel disc brakes are reasonably powerful, and the engine has more than adequate power in low gears (esp. with the 5- speed). I dislike the exterior styling, particularly the rear, but have had good experiences with other higher-mileage Nissans. I didn't buy the extended warranty, but I'm optimistic :-)

Favorite Features

Much cheaper than a comparable Accord/Camry, big interior and trunk, smooth engine w/ satisfying acceleration, nice interior layout, 16" alloy wheels, quiet on the freeway, fun to drive, reliable, strong brakes

Suggested Improvements

Uninspired exterior styling (resolved with 2002+ model introduction), better resale value, suspension too busy over bumpy/rough roads, cheap Nissan speakers usually don't last any more than 3-4 years before distorting, minor interior rattles, manual gearbox not perfect (but not a fatal flaw)
