1994 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


Review

I'm finally looking to trade-in this
car, but only because I want a new car
for graduation to start off fresh.
It's been very reliable- I got it with
58000 miles on it, had to replace the
brakes once or twice, new rotors, some
other minor repairs- nothing out of
the ordinary. It is fun to drive and
extremely easy to park and zip through
traffic. I added a spoiler and racing
wheels and it looks very nice. The
Bose standard speakers are a nice
touch. For a 11 year old car, it's
pretty decent.


Best Features

Easy handling...interior comfort and design... looks new- people always think its a 2000 or a 2001


Worst Features

improved body paint quality- rusts a little too easy

Review

Almost had serious accident caused by
my 94 Altima engine distributor
problem in Nov. 2002. The 94 Nissan
Altima has high failure rate of its
engine distributor. If your car is
among those, the distributor could
cause the engine to stall ALL of
sudden when you are driving. The
immediate results will be, the power
steering stops working,
the foot brake stops working. I had to
pull the hand break HARD to avoid a
car accident.

After spent $550 to replace a new
distributor. The car has been running
good.


Best Features

Good Acceleration. Fun to drive.


Worst Features

1) Often wipe and clean the distributor area, because the 94 Altima distributor could have engine oil leak into the distributor to disable the computer chip inside. 2) If the engine starts to have light chocking, check the car ASAP. Mention the distributor issue to the mechanics.

Review

I purchased this Nissan about 18
months ago with slightly less than
100K miles on it. The first day I had
it the alternator broke. 3 months
later the starter went bad. I had a
nice break for about 10 months, but
after that the distributor broke. 3
months later the alternator broke
again. 2 months after I had the
alternator fixed, the cables for the
alternator broke(this was probably the
initial problem when my 2nd alternator
went, but I still was charged $300 for
a new alternator.) I purchased the car
for $4600 and have already put at
least $2500 into it in just a year and
a half.


Best Features

the few times it's actually running it's an alright car to drive.


Worst Features

I'm constantly expecting my next wait for the tow truck and expensive repair bill. That's more of a complaint than a suggested improvement. The improvement would be the reliability.
