Great value and reliability
By iowaboy on
2001 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Bought privately when it had 7,000 miles due to sellers expecting twins. No major repairs in 104,000 miles of ownership - now has 111,000 miles. I now drive 47 miles one-way to work all highway and average 33 mpg using non-ethanol 87 octane fuel. Plan on driving until 250,000. No rust anywhere. I believe the great reliability is due to the 6th and final year of this body/design style. All kinks worked out.
Acceleration torque, 5-speed manual, responsive & precise cruise control, tight feel of the road.
Better design on hubcaps (noisy due to fittings) seems to be a common suggestion.
