1998 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan


This 1998 Altima GXE was my first brand new car and, after owning a series of VWs, I enjoyed the reliability and sporty looks of this car. I now have 176,000 miles on it, only ever needed tires, brakes, tune ups until two months ago, when the engine finally went out, ONLY because I got very lazy on the oil changes, mind you! I put in a used Japanese engine and it runs like a charm again but it now has a steering fluid leak that has to be fixed. I think its to be expected at 176000 miles. Its been a fantastic car and I would highly recommend it.

Best Features

Sooo reliable, roomy, comfortable seats and controls, stylish, sporty looking.

Worst Features

1998 gxe audio system does not sound that good, could improve. Left window rattles at higher speeds.
