My Favorite Car So Far!
By TechPete on
2001 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Bought my 2001 Altima GXE Ltd Ed 12/01
w/ 2122 miles. Saw it on internet,
test drove it, and instantly loved
it. Car has good excel from stop and
in traffic. Handles well except for
sharp corners. Normal braking good.
Hard braking and wet weather
conditions rear swings out. Fuel
economy is to spec. Road noise is min
with windows up, loud with windows
down (>45mph). Car handles fine at
speed <95mph. Noticeable aero lift
>110mph. Engine loud under hard
excel. At 5'11" no trouble using
radio. People <5'3" may have
difficulty. Visibility is good. Only
problems with power windows. Recall
recently issued in hot weather
Great power and excel for a 4cyl.
Handles well and fun to drive. Very
good controls and radio/CD for
sensible adults. Excelent interior
space. Very good power driver seat.
Even out the weight distribution to
improve emergency handling. Add in
the hardware for enthusiast option add
ons. Loose the steel wheels and those
awful plastic wheel covers; use alloy
