GXE - An AWFUL care w/ auto tranny
By dumbo on


1995 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


This car is just plain awful with an
automatic tranny. (SLOW!) I am
constantly overriding the auto. because
it refuses to shift down unless
the car is absolutely floored! The gas
mileage is also very poor - 22 mpg for
a 4-banger?! The back seat is small
(though it may not look like it, it
really is), 3 adults fit like
sardines. Not to mention that the
check engine light has come on ever
since we bought this car. We've had it
repaired 3 times and finally have
accepted that it is going to stay on,
like it or not. I have a VERY hard
time looking at Nissan again after this
pathetic excuse for a car. My Civic is
a MUCH better car (and 1 year older).

Best Features

O/D shutoff button on the auto. shifter. I'd have driven this car off a cliff by now if it didn't have it, because I have to use it when the car won't shift down.

Worst Features

DON'T buy one with auto tranny. Improve gas mileage. Back seat is a waste of space, suspension is too soft and floaty. My best suggestion is to not look at this car at all - hindsight being 20/20, I'd have paid a few thousand more in a heartbeat for a Honda Accord.
