Best thousand dollars I spent
By awesomealtima on


1993 Nissan Altima XE 4dr Sedan


I bought my Altima in February 2011, after spending months searching for an affordable 5 speed car.
For an 18 year old with $1000 to spend, it was the best money could buy.
It had all manual amenities (windows, locks, seats) but everything worked on it.
The A/C only needed a recharge, and while not the strongest or coldest, it was fine for a small car.
It had 170,000 miles yet the engine ran fine.
I thought for a car of it's class it had good performance.
Even though my mom had a new durango, we'd often take my car for trips due to the much better gas mileage.
I NEVER had to fix anything with the car, but sadly I had to sell it for tuition. Otherwise, I would run it into the ground.

Best Features

PROS:Engine, performance, standard features (A/C, tachometer, folding mirrors), seat padding, trunk space, interior space (for its size), maintenance, handling, gas mileage, size CONS:Unsychronized first and reverse gear (might be my car only), I wish the drivers seat gave a little more room, but I'm large [6'1, >290 lbs.], location of the stereo, center console space, design of the glove box
