I bought my 2001 Nissan Altima brand new. With over 120,000 miles on the odometer nothings gone wrong with this car so far. I did replace the original hubcaps after 40,000 miles because of the racket they made; aftermarket hubcaps dont make noise! Otherwise this car has never been back to the dealer for anything except accident repair. I do change the oil & filter every 3000 miles, transmission fluid and coolant fluid every 30,000 miles, so the car is cared for.
I do wish Nissan wouldve engineered better ride and handling into this car. The ride is okay on regular roads but gets nasty when bumps and potholes are the norm. Better mileage city mileage wouldve been preferred as it only averages 23 mpg around town.
