Ok, but disappointed
By JLPearl on


2001 Nissan Altima GLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I was disappointed in this car. Have heard foriegn cars are better, and this was my first one - no more for me. Check engine light came on before we even got it home! Went round & round with the dealer who finally agreed to the repair - intake manifold gasket (exact same problem I had with my GM!) Car sits low - it will rust, even if you constantly wash it. Car is light and has a rough ride - feel every bump in the road. Exterior trim started falling off one day for no reason. Power drivers window was very sluggish. Gas mileage was horrid - I the best I got was 24mpg. I went back to GM and am happier. I get 28-30mpg consistently with my current full size GM product (V6).

Best Features

Exterior is not bad looking, just sits too low.

Worst Features

Intake manifold gasket is a problem in these cars. Car sits too low.
