1993 Nissan Altima GLE 4dr Sedan


Purchased this car from the Nissan
dealership as the 2nd owner for only
$5500 with 99K miles on it. The first
owner had the extended 100K mile
warranty and bought a new Maxima.
It's been a little over 2 year's and i
have doubled the vehicle mileage to
200K miles and the thing still goes
strong. The engine is great. Runs
like a champ and starts every time.
Have had problems though. The timing
chain went bad around 142K and was
expensive at $1100. WARNING. Make
sure the timing chain is fixed
preferebly by Nissan as a shade tree
job can end up costing you a lot more
in the long run.

Best Features

I love the interior design ie leather/wood. Makes you feel like you've bought something like an ES 300. The drive isn't bad at all either. As long as the tires are good and the vehicle is aligned properly you could do 90mph all day with no prob except for law enforcement.

Worst Features

I really hated the cupholders. Right in front of the radio. I wish they didn't blow up the new Altima and the 98 version is not very attractive. Plus, why no retained power accessories (radio, windows)?
