1997 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


After buying the car in Apr. 1998 for $13k I am happy i have put 140K miles on the car to a total of 174K miles. As with some reviews my car has dash gremlins which can be obnoxious. In the past month I have had the shock joints changed and the battery cables replaced. Carriage Nissan's service has been very unsatisfactory. The car has had electrical problems since the replacement of the battery cables. Leaving me stranded twice. I hop after the fourth set of battery cables that it is fixed. Other than that every thing seems to working great.

Best Features

Spunky pickup of the 4cyl. more power than the 1997 Camry I had before. The interior seems attractive considering current age.

Worst Features

RESALE VALUE, just sold the car for $2500, big disappointment when compared to Honda or Toyota. More sound proofing, Just bought a new Hyundai Sonata and the altima is so loud when compared to it.
