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


I did months of research and the Altima was one of the ones that ranked high on my list. I purchased the '01 Limited Edition model and obviously this model was not included in the high-rated reviews I kept reading about. My car has died 3 times in one week, starter problems. I have to wait for it to die again and then have it towed to the mechanic for troubleshooting. The driver's side mirror vibrates on bumpy roads and when the CD is in use. No explanation or repair available. The ride isn't as smooth as I would like and the driver's side door doesn't want to close completely... go figure. I'm going to look into a '03 Accord.

Best Features

Alarm system, gas mileage and ease of handling.

Worst Features

Needs to be more solidly built...I suppose that's where the modifications in the '02 model come in. Security chip in key is costly, over $100. I've never kept such a tight grip on a single car key in my life.
