1997 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


I bought this Altima after I put my 3rd
set of brakes on a Potiac I owned and
have been somewhat happy with this
car. There seems to be a small problem
every year which runs me $100 to $200.
The emergency brake cables, the back
light socket, and the transmission
gasket have all been replaced. Battery
is understandable. In general is
reliable and is better than the
American cars I have had.
Very disappointed with the
transmission, especially shifting into
1st gear. I now have some water
building up in the trunk, no clue how
it is getting there, need to investiagte

Best Features

Reliable and 23mpg city. Even though I have had problems I have only been without the car when the battery was out so it has gotten me where I have needed to go.

Worst Features

Automatic transmission is disappointing. Too many little problems
