1997 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


A lot better than I've expected in a
mid class sedan. The 150bhp performs
better than my 1990 Honda Prelude of
140bhp. Very reliable considering this
was a previous rental. I only had the
intention of keeping it a couple years
but ended up still driving it. It now
has 76K miles. Recently spent $620 on
a gasket repair but I still think its a
good car. I will buy another Nissan.

Best Features

I like the power the car brings out at low RPMs. No timing chain to worry about. 24 to 29 Mpg.

Worst Features

Need better rear seats. Transmission fluid changed before 45K miles. check brakes. Changed intake manifold gasket at 75K miles which cost $20 part & $600 labor. Mechanic said this is usual Nissan occurrence due to quality of gasket. So if you loose gas mileage, have it checked!
