1997 Nissan Altima SE 4dr Sedan (1997.5)


I bought my Altima used in 2001 with
51,000 miles and I haven't had any
major problems with it since besides
normal upkeep and wear and tear. I'm
satisfied with this car for the most
part. My complaint is that the Altima
does shift a little hard. I took it to
the mechanic and he told me that the
transmission was okay though and that
this version of the Altima tends to do
that. The other thing I noticed is the
brakes squeel when the car hasn't ran
for a while, but as soon as the car
warms up the squeeling stops. I did
have this problem looked at as well
and I was told this was okay for now.

Best Features

Comfortable seating, Predictability

Worst Features

The trunk opening is too narrow! You can't fit larger items such as small furniture or even a camping cooler. The trunk space is decent but the opening is narrow. What's the point of the space if you can't use it?
